Abstract

The way we control our borders and treat those who want or need to cross them says so much about our national identity. And for the last 25 years, the U.K. Government has - with significant public support - moved to make immigration as difficult as possible. But in contrast, the Scottish government has been more focused on encouraging migration to Scotland to address population decline and contribute to the Scottish economy. This episode of Recovering Community begins with the Kenmure Street Protest, when community resistance to a Home Office raid resulted in the release of two men back into their neighbourhood. Anne Kerr talks to Teresa Piacentini, David Millar, Pinar Aksu and Cetta Mainwaring to consider the ways that community activism in Glasgow sets the city apart from wider UK sentiment towards immigration.
