Listeners will have seen the recent “anti-asylum seeker” protests in East Wall. But you might not have gotten the full picture on what is really happening both there and within our creaking immigration system. Joining us to discuss this and his viral thread on these events is Activist and National Organiser with United Against Racism, Memet Uludag.
We talk about the vetting question, the economic migrant classification and why we have a housing crisis, not a refugee one. Memet talks about his own experience and those of the people he has helped navigate through the immigration system. Above all else he outlines the facts beyond the rhetoric and if we change the political trajectory there is nothing we cannot overcome in this wealthy and welcoming country.
