The 'Go Home' campaign - a public meeting.

http://gcimmigrationlaw.wordpress.com/2013/08/23/the-go-home-campaign-a-public-meeting/#more-216

The catalyst for this series of workshops was the pilot scheme, run by the Government from 22 July, during which vans with the words ‘Go Home or Face Arrest’ were driven around six London boroughs in a week-long campaign. The boroughs were chosen because each one had either a particularly low or particularly high level of voluntary return amongst migrants. The evening included discussions about reactions to the ‘Go Home’ campaign, the proliferation of immigration spot checks and campaigning tips for concerned organisations and individuals.

"There is no compulsion to respond if an immigration officer stops you in the street." An important message to spread

"The Japanese are no more racist than Americans or people of many other countries. The only difference is that when you come to Japan, for the first time in your life, you are a minority and get to see what it’s like to be one. But for some reason, while here in Japan, discrimination suddenly becomes a personal affront, because it’s happening to you. And unfortunately, what follows tends to be the same conclusions: 'The xenophobic Japanese!' Or 'The Japanese are racist!' Now who is doing the stereotyping?"
