IRR News (22 September – 5 October 2017)

Written by: admin

Dear IRR News subscriber,

This week, sadly, there was yet another death in immigration detention – the fifth such death in the UK this year. We reported two weeks ago on two other deaths in immigration detention and now the news that a 38-year-old unnamed Jamaican man has died at Morton Hall comes as calls mount for an inquiry into the treatment of detainees at Brook House immigration removal centre, near Gatwick. More information on the scandal of the government’s treatment of immigration detainees can be found in our regular calendar of racism and resistance.

This week on IRR News, PhD student Jasbinder S. Nijjar reviews Just Yorkshire’s accessible and evidence-based study of the government’s Prevent agenda which shatters the myth that Prevent is a fundamental, fair or, indeed, ‘fantastic’ way of tackling the threat of terrorism.
