Today our activist group, Our Future Now, have installed subverted adverts on London Underground trains calling out the Home Office's 'hostile environment' and its brutal and racist policies.
The posters are constructed to appear as if it is the Home Office who are exposing themselves. Through the subverted ads, the Home Office themselves admit to how many Black British citizens they detained and deported during the Windrush scandal. They call themselves out as being racist. They acknowledge how many people are locked up in detention each year. They confess to creating a society of border guards. And they profess to their incompetence which has led to many asylum seekers being wrongfully deported.
