The session of the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal on violations with impunity of the human rights of migrant and refugee peoples (short title: PPT on Human Rights of Migrants and Refugee Peoples) was launched in Barcelona in July 2017, and has held Hearings there and in Palermo and Paris. The PPT will be holding an evidence Hearing In London, November 3-4, 2018, at Friends House, Euston, London. Its focus at that Hearing will be on the violation of rights to livelihood and the facilitation of the exploitation of migrants and refugees as workers, in the chain of labour. The indictment, prepared by civil society organisations in the UK, is attached to this call for evidence. The Defendant is the UK government, in its own right and representing other EU governments. The indictment sets out government policies which channel many migrants and refugees into precarious or illegal employment in which they have no protection and/ or deny them the possibility of a decent livelihood and other rights taken for granted by others.
