The King’s Speech was made on 17 July 2024. It marks the State opening of Parliament following the General Election.  Although the speech is read out by the King, it is written by the government. This time, it outlined the new Labour government’s plan for the next 5 years. It is important to remember that although the King’s Speech outlines government plans, it is not legally binding. Things that are mentioned in it might not happen, and things that were not mentioned may be introduced later.

Right to Remain
by RtR
4d ago
On 9 July 2024, the Right to Remain community gathered online to share information and analysis, build solidarity, and plan our next steps following the results of the UK General Election. There was clearly a sense of urgency that we needed to get together to take stock of the situation. Despite  very short notice, over 100 people immediately signed up to attend the Solidarity Session, and many more joined the waiting list. This sense of urgency seemed to have acted as a unifying force for the often fragmented social justice field: we were excited to welcome participants from many differ ..read more

On the first weekend of July, Right to Remain attended the Ella Baker School of Organising conference in Nottingham. We were pleased to have been invited to this incredible event, and for the opportunity to connect with people and organisations from trade unions to charities, campaigners and activists from across the UK.

We have a new government. A new political landscape is emerging. What does this mean for Greater Manchester, for migrant rights, for our communities, our groups, our organisations? We have been through years of an increasingly hostile environment, culminating in the Illegal Migration Act and the Rwanda plan. Many of us are still reeling from our emergency response to the pre-election Rwanda detentions. That scheme appears to have been ditched, which is a massive relief. But what next, for the movement for migration justice? What next, in Greater Manchester? Join Right to Remain for a special ..read more

A new parliamentary political landscape will emerge soon in Britain. Right to Remain has published an open letter, not addressed to the winner of the General Election, but to you, to our own communities. Since the General Election was announced, so much speculation, despair, hopes and wishes have been flying around non-stop. There will be new MPs. Some old faces might be replaced by new faces. Maybe there will be surprises.  Lately, our society has been exposed to a number of compounding crises, and it’s no wonder people want a change to this nightmare scenario.  So many demands are ..read more
