Responding to anti-immigration and xenophobic politics over two decades ago, British anti-imperialist and anti-racist thinker Sivanandan (1995) insisted: “it is your economics that creates our politics that make us refugees in your economies”. Today’s migration is rooted in historical, social, economic and political relations. Te ravages of colonialism, imperialism (including military intervention), historical institutional labour arrangements, crises and shifs in global capitalism are key to understanding contemporary migration. Meanwhile, migrant and immigrant workers and communities worldwide have long organized against exploitation and oppression. Tey have ofen
been vital to struggles for change, many of which highlight ways that capital exploits workers through the social relations
of race, gender, and class and unjust immigration policies.
