Ruptly is live from London on Saturday, January 15, as people gather for a new round of protests against the nationality and borders bill as well as against UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
The bill, sponsored by Home Secretary Priti Patel, is aimed at making the UK immigration system fairer and simpler, while also more strict on illegal immigration. It is now entering the final stage of approval. The proposal has been criticised by lawyers and human rights organisations, who claim that it breaches international and domestic law.
Protesters are expected to merge with a ‘Johnson Must Go’ protest outside the office of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson at Downing street 10.
The protest comes as the PM faces calls for his resignation following reports that a number of parties have been held at Downing Street last year in the times when social gatherings were banned within COVID-19 restrictions.
