Nottingham Revolutionary Communist Group and supporters held an Open Mic Against Racism! In Hyson Green as part of the National Day of Action against the Immigration Act (see fighttheracistact.wordpress.com). The 2016 act builds on the 2014 Immigration Act and the two together tighten Britain's already racist immigration controls in order to make a "hostile environment" for migrants by making it easier to deport people and severely restricting access to services. Additionally, they extend immigration controls into more sections of the community, requiring schools, hospitals and other institutions to carry out immigration checks before providing basic and necessary services.
