• PlayStation: Xbox’s Call of Duty offer was “inadequate on many levels” | GamesIndustry.biz
    https://www.gamesindustry.biz/playstation-xboxs-call-of-duty-offer-was-inadequate-on-many-levels

    Microsoft has promised to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation for three years beyond the current agreement between Activision and Sony, says PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan.

    In a statement provided to GamesIndustry.biz, Ryan says the offer was “inadequate on many levels.”

    The disagreement between the two companies follows Microsoft’s offer to buy Call of Duty publisher Activision Blizzard in a deal worth nearly $69 billion. The deal is currently being scrutinised by competitions regulators, with the UK regulator (The Competition and Markets Authority) concerned over the possibility of Microsoft “withholding or degrading” Activision Blizzard’s content from other consoles or subscription services.

    Last week, Xbox revealed that it had “provided a signed agreement to Sony to guarantee Call of Duty on PlayStation, with feature and content parity, for at least several more years” beyond Sony’s existing contract with Activision. Xbox said this offer “goes well beyond typical gaming industry agreements.”

    The current deal between Sony and Activision Blizzard around Call of Duty is believed to cover the next three releases, including this year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

    However, Sony says the offer fails to consider the impact on PlayStation gamers.

  • Il Villaggio globale di Riace ripopolato dagli afghani: nonostante tutto, l’accoglienza non si ferma

    Mentre l’ex sindaco Mimmo Lucano attende la sentenza d’appello, una rete di associazioni mantiene in vita il borgo con aiuti e sottoscrizioni “contro la criminalizzazione di un modello solidale”

    Dall’Afghanistan a Riace per ricostruire una nuova vita. Quattro famiglie sono arrivate nel mese di giugno nel borgo calabrese, dove l’accoglienza ministeriale è stata bloccata poco dopo l’avvio del procedimento giudiziario contro Mimmo Lucano. Il processo di appello all’ex sindaco, condannato in primo grado a 13 anni e 2 mesi di carcere con una serie di accuse legate alla gestione dei progetti di accoglienza dei richiedenti asilo, è iniziato il 25 maggio. Il 6 luglio è fissata la prossima udienza.

    Ezatullah e Roqia, 30 e 29 anni sono arrivati a Riace dopo una lunga attesa. «Abbiamo trascorso quasi nove mesi in Pakistan. Veniamo da Kandahar. Siamo fuggiti con la nostra bimba di tre anni alla fine di agosto e siamo riusciti ad attraversare il confine. Io lavoravo con gruppi di statunitensi, mentre mia moglie era una maestra. Non potevamo restare, rischiavamo entrambi tremende ritorsioni», raccontano a L’Espresso.

    Entrare o uscire dal Pakistan non è facile. Ezatullah e la sua famiglia hanno dovuto aspettare che venisse loro concesso un visto, che costa circa 800 euro a persona. A Riace sono quindi arrivati tramite un percorso umanitario gestito dall’associazione #Jimuel Onlus.

    «Ci siamo presi carico del costo del visto e del viaggio. Lo Stato italiano chiede infatti delle garanzie per l’arrivo delle persone provenienti dall’Afghanistan. Noi siamo riusciti a coprire i costi per quattro famiglie tramite le sottoscrizioni di privati che hanno donato quote all’associazione. Riace, subito dopo l’invasione russa, si era resa disponibile anche ad accogliere famiglie ucraine, ma serviva un’approvazione formale, che il Consiglio Comunale non ha dato», racconta Isidoro Napoli, presidente di Jimuel.

    A Riace Ezatullah e Roqia hanno iniziato la propria ripartenza. Roqia ha una borsa lavoro in un laboratorio di sartoria ed entrambi stanno frequentando la scuola di italiano. «Vedo il mio futuro qui, prima di arrivare speravo di trovare un buon posto in cui vivere ma non potevo esserne sicuro. Il nostro obiettivo è imparare l’italiano prima possibile e iniziare la nostra nuova vita», prosegue Ezatullah.

    Un “modello Riace” in versione ridotta sta quindi ricominciando. Le famiglie afghane sono ospitate all’interno del cosiddetto Villaggio globale, la zona del borgo in cui le decine di case abbandonate dai cittadini emigrati nel Nord Italia o all’estero vengono affittate, tramite un’associazione, alle famiglie rifugiate.

    «Gli afghani stanno ripopolando il borgo ma in realtà l’accoglienza spontanea a Riace non si è mai fermata», racconta Mimmo Lucano.

    E non si è fermata nonostante nel 2016 sia iniziata la trafila giudiziaria per l’ex sindaco e nel 2017 siano stati congelati i fondi del progetto Sprar (Sistema di protezione per richiedenti asilo e rifugiati, sostituito nel 2018 dal Sipromi, Sistema di protezione per titolari di protezione internazionale e per i minori stranieri non accompagnati e nel 2020 dal Sai, Sistema accoglienza Integrazione), finanziato con fondi del ministero dell’Interno.

    Dopo che a Riace vennero bloccati i progetti in corso, i migranti vennero trasferiti in altri centri sparsi in tutta Italia. Il blocco dei finanziamenti ha di fatto paralizzato l’accoglienza a Riace: il borgo si era nuovamente spopolato, anche se c’era chi aveva comunque deciso di restare. Il modello Riace, iniziato nel 1998 con i primi sbarchi di curdi e ampliato nei vent’anni successivi, ha contribuito, secondo molti, a fermare lo spopolamento del piccolo centro. In quindici anni il Paese era infatti tornato ai livelli di popolazione del 1920, arrivando a superare i 2.500 abitanti, mentre negli anni Novanta abitavano a Riace solo 1.600 persone.

    La storia di accoglienza del borgo calabrese parte da lontano e ha visto Mimmo Lucano in prima linea prima come volontario e poi come sindaco. Lucano è stato infatti primo cittadino di Riace dal 2004 al 2018, anno in cui Antonio Trifoli è stato eletto con una lista civica vicina alla destra, mentre l’ex sindaco non ha ottenuto i voti per poter entrare in Consiglio comunale.

    «Ho sempre pensato che l’accoglienza nei borghi spopolati contribuisse a far rinascere un senso di identità. Le comunità in cui ci sono solo autoctoni non sono ideali, non c’è crescita, contaminazione. Io ho sempre considerato quello che abbiamo creato negli anni come qualcosa di spontaneo, che andasse al di là dei confini. Il fatto che un luogo di emigrazione in cui non c’è lavoro e ci sono fortissime infiltrazioni mafiose si stesse trasformando in uno di arrivo ha incuriosito tanti. Nel bene e nel male», racconta Mimmo Lucano.

    Ma a ripopolare Riace sono stati negli anni anche i riacesi stessi. Tra questi c’è Vincenzo, emigrato prima in Toscana e poi a Parigi subito dopo il diploma per ragioni di studio e lavoro, e rientrato nel Paese per lavorare con l’accoglienza.

    «Sono tornato ad abitare nella mia vecchia casa. Lasciare Riace era stata una necessità visto che volevo lavorare con il cinema. Adesso continuo a farlo ma ho la base nel mio paese e aiuto a portare avanti il nostro progetto di accoglienza. Come me sono stati molti i giovani riacesi che erano tornati per lavorare negli anni passati. Ora in molti sono ripartiti», racconta.

    Riace continua in ogni caso a essere «meta di un’accoglienza spontanea». Sono ad oggi, oltre alle famiglie afghane arrivate a giugno, trenta le persone provenienti da Nigeria, Ciad, Etiopia, Etitrea, Somalia, Ghana ed Egitto che abitano nel borgo. «Arrivano tramite passaparola. Tra loro c’è chi ha concluso i progetti di accoglienza nei Sai ma non sa dove andare. C’è chi fugge dalla violenza dei propri familiari. La scorsa settimana è arrivata una ragazza nigeriana incinta con i suoi due bambini. Vengono qui perché sanno che possono trovare una porta aperta, che nonostante tutto non lasciamo per la strada nessuno», spiega l’ex sindaco.

    Nel Villaggio globale non ci sono solo case. È anche un luogo di attività: restano aperti i laboratori tessili, di falegnameria, il forno sociale, la biblioteca dei diritti umani ed è in fase di creazione Radio Aut, una web radio che si rifà all’esperienza dell’emittente antimafia creata a Cinisi negli anni Settanta da Peppino Impastato.

    È attivo, poi, il banco alimentare che fornisce ogni settimana un buono spesa a ciascun nucleo familiare, così come l’ambulatorio medico in cui tre medici specialisti visitano gratuitamente sia le persone rifugiate che i riacesi.

    Dietro al modello di accoglienza c’è il sostegno di una serie di associazioni. Centinaia le attività che dall’inizio del processo a Lucano si sono svolte in tutta Italia per raccogliere fondi con l’obiettivo di portare avanti il progetto. Una delle realtà più attive è “Una luce per Riace”, associazione bolognese che si occupa di pagare le bollette alle case dei rifugiati che abitano nel Villaggio globale. Al lavoro anche vari “Comitati 11 giugno” (data di inizio del processo a Mimmo Lucano) che stanno, tramite sottoscrizioni, sostenendo il modello di accoglienza con eventi, iniziative e raccolte fondi.

    Un modello, quello di Riace, che ha subito un processo di criminalizzazione. A dirlo, tra gli altri, una delegazione di parlamentari europei di Verdi (Greens-Efa) e Sinistra (Left) che i primi di giugno ha fatto visita al borgo calabrese per portare la propria solidarietà all’ex sindaco. Un sostegno che, secondo Damien Careme del gruppo dei Greens, si sostanzia al Parlamento di Strasburgo con l’appoggio di 60 deputati.

    La criminalizzazione della solidarietà non è un fatto solo italiano ed è anzi diffusa in tutta Europa. Secondo un dossier realizzato dal gruppo dei Verdi, sono state 89 le persone perseguite nei Paesi Membri tra gennaio 2021 e marzo 2022. Tra questi 18 devono affrontare nuove accuse e quattro sono essi stessi migranti. Nell’88 per cento dei casi le persone sono state accusate di «favoreggiamento dell’ingresso, del transito o del soggiorno di migranti». A questi casi si sommano poi le quasi 300 persone che tra agosto e settembre 2021 sono state arrestate per aver aiutato i migranti che attraversavano illegalmente le frontiere tra Bielorussia e Polonia a seguito della crisi afghana.

    Anche il rapporto “Accused of solidarity”, publicato da Border violence monitoring network (Bvmn, una rete indipendente di associazioni che monitorano le violazioni dei diritti umani alle frontiere esterne dell’Ue) alla fine di maggio descrive e documenta il processo di «criminalizzazione» dei migranti e delle associazioni e operatori impegnati in questo campo. Elencando e contestualizzando gli episodi di criminalizzazione il rapporto evidenzia il «deterioramento della situazione» per chi offre sostegno ai migranti. Una criminalizzazione che, secondo le rilevazioni di Bvmn, sta diventando «sempre più raffinata perché attuata con metodi e strumenti formalmente legali».

    https://kotaku.com/ea-roe-v-wade-abortion-trans-rights-fifa-apex-legends-1848977494

    Electronic Arts won’t be joining some other big game studios in publicly supporting abortion and transgender rights, Kotaku has learned. Asked about it during a May 24 company-wide town hall meeting, the gaming publisher told staff it couldn’t take a stance on every public issue and that “being an inclusive company means being inclusive of all those points of view.”

    Last week, PlayStation President Jim Ryan sent employees an email asking them to “respect differences of opinion” around abortion rights in light of the leaked Supreme Court opinion surrounding Roe v. Wade, stressing that “we owe it to each other and to PlayStation’s millions of users to respect differences of opinion among everyone in our internal and external communities,” and concluding the missive with several paragraphs about Ryan’s cats’ birthdays. Employees were not pleased with the lighthearted response, according to a Bloomberg report about the email.

    Activsion Blizzard has landed the game industry’s most embarrassing hat trick—Nintendo’s Doug Bowser has apparently joined Xbox and PlayStation bosses Phil Spencer and Jim Ryan in sending private memos to employees criticizing Activision Blizzard’s alleged culture of sexual harassment and discrimination.

    […]

    That means leadership for all three major platform holders that Activision Blizzard does business with have now criticized its handling of the situation in the week since an explosive Wall Street Journal report alleged that CEO Bobby Kotick was an active participant in said culture.

    Ce qui a changé par rapport aux précédents records, c’est que l’agence de notation WataGames lui a décerné un 9.8A++, a priori la note maximale qu’un exemplaire de ce jeu pourrait décrocher, mais cela reste étonnant quand un 9.4A+ faisait presque quarante fois moins en début d’année. Et dans la mesure où Heritage Auctions récupère 20% de la transaction – le jeu a en réalité été adjugé à 1,3 millions – plus 5% de la somme touchée par le vendeur, on peut effectivement se demander s’il n’y a pas anguille sous roche… Car si la maison de vente aux enchères assure faire toutes les vérifications nécessaires, l’acheteur demeure en général anonyme à moins de se manifester publiquement. Les arnaques ne sont hélas pas nouvelles dans le jeu vidéo, avec des faux prototypes et kits de développement par exemple, mais c’est bien sûr à tout autre chose que l’on a affaire ici, bien plus subtile et plus légale en apparence.

    Sur l’étonnante envolée des prix de jeux vidéo anciens, avec une relation consanguine, voire collusion, entre organisateurs des enchères et les évaluateurs des jeux, dont les acheteurs anonymes sont tantôt associés à des fonds d’investissements, tantôt les vendeurs, désireux de faire gonfler artificiellement les prix.

    De manière connexe, on peut s’intéresser à la concentration constatée dans le marché de l’art en général :

  • John Pilger: The Great Game of Smashing Nations – Consortiumnews

    As a tsunami of crocodile tears engulfs Western politicians, history is suppressed. More than a generation ago, Afghanistan won its freedom, which the United States, Britain and their “allies” destroyed.

    In 1978, a liberation movement led by the People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan (PDPA) overthrew the dictatorship of Mohammad Dawd, the cousin of King Zahir Shah. It was an immensely popular revolution that took the British and Americans by surprise.

    Foreign journalists in Kabul, reported The New York Times, were surprised to find that “nearly every Afghan they interviewed said [they were] delighted with the coup.” The Wall Street Journal reported that “150,000 persons … marched to honor the new flag … the participants appeared genuinely enthusiastic.”

  • La Position du mort flottant - Quilombo Boutique-Librairie
    https://librairie-quilombo.org/la-position-du-mort-flottant

    Dernier recueil de poésie publié avant la mort de #Jim_Harrison, La position du mort flottant (en anglais Dead man’s float) est un livre qui aborde de front les grands thèmes de la mort, de la vieillesse, du Temps… Son titre fait référence à une position utilisée par les nageurs pour se préserver lors de longues courses. S’il s’agit bien d’une technique de survie – pour Harrison, celle qui lui permet d’affronter la maladie, les séances de chirurgie, mais aussi d’appréhender l’approche de la mort et la perception de son corps vieillissant, toujours plus faible.

    Les #poèmes, pourtant, font bien plus que flotter. Car Harrison trouve, par l’écriture, un moyen de transformer le négatif en une opportunité d’introspection, de retour à la vie. Alors que la mort approche, il se concentre sur les petites choses de son monde quotidien, sur les souvenirs toujours vivaces qui le séparent, à peine, de son enfance. Comme s’il pouvait toujours, « soixante-huit ans plus tard (…) habiter le corps de ce garçon sans penser au temps écoulé depuis. » Et comme si la vieillesse, au final, ne faisait rien d’autre que rejoindre l’enfance.

Une manière de décaler le regard sur le monde peut être d’utiliser (et d’admirer au passage) les très belles oeuvres de #street-art (https://www.francetvinfo.fr/culture/arts-expos/street-art/coronavirus-tour-du-monde-des-plus-belles-oeuvres-de-street-art-face-a-) produites dans le contexte de la pandémie. #Virginie_Estève a proposé un projet cartographique à ses élèves de 4e : cartographier leur espace vécu de confinement et aborder le paysage sensible depuis leur fenêtre. La preuve que l’on peut continuer à faire de la géographie et travailler à distance, moyennant quelques aménagements ( voir ce Genialy : https://view.genial.ly/5e80c8155ad5150d93dab237/guide-geographie-du-confinement).

    « Un homme rentre chez lui, au cœur des grands espaces. Sans doute sait-il qu’il va mourir. Il raconte. Sa vie — qu’il a brûlée par les deux bouts et qui se confond avec l’histoire de l’Amérique. Les Indiens… Les marges… La nature sauvage… Il se trouve qu’il est l’un des plus grands écrivains américains. Il s’appelle Jim Harrison. »

C’est ainsi qu’il imagine le trompettiste Miles Davis à la tête de la CIA, le pianiste Duke Ellington au ministère des Affaires étrangères ou encore la chanteuse Ella Fitzgerald aux Affaires sociales… Un gouvernement qui a du swing !

    Malgré ses mesures farfelues, Gillespie est on ne peut plus sérieux. L’artiste est profondément révolté par les meurtres racistes qui secouent l’Amérique.
    Son programme défend les droits civiques des afro-américains, que ce soit en faisant des propositions pour davantage d’égalité ou en exigeant l’interdiction du Ku Klux Klan.

  • QAnon : Cet homme est vraisemblablement Q, ou sait qui est Q - L’1dex
    https://1dex.ch/2020/12/qanon-cet-homme-est-vraisemblablement-q-ou-sait-qui-est-q

    Comme la plupart le savent maintenant, QAnon est une illusion collective dérangée qui a consumé des dizaines de milliers, voire des centaines de milliers d’Américains, qui croient qu’une cabale de pédophiles adorant Satan et dirigeant un réseau mondial de trafic sexuel d’enfants complote contre le président Donald Trump. Les QAnon vont bientôt entrer au Congrès, après que Marjorie Taylor Greene – qui croit au délire des QAnon – ait gagné ses primaires républicaines en Géorgie et n’ait pas d’adversaire aux élections générales.

    Dans l’épisode de cette semaine du podcast ReplyAll de Gimlet, PJ Vogt explore non seulement les origines de QAnon, mais théorise – sur la base de preuves très convaincantes – l’identité de Q, la (ou les) personne(s) derrière le délire. Je crois que 90 % de l’illusion des QAnon réside dans le mystère de Q et que la révélation de son identité démystifiera progressivement l’illusion une fois que les adeptes de Q commenceront à comprendre qui il est vraiment.
    Les milliers de personnes qui se sont consacrées à cette illusion savent-elles que le type derrière tout cela est un ancien mécanicien de l’armée d’âge moyen devenu gourou du porno sur Internet ? Est-il surprenant que l’homme derrière ce délire qui s’attache à croire que les démocrates dirigent un réseau de trafic sexuel d’enfants soit également le propriétaire de 8Chan, un site connu pour son rôle de forum de la pornographie enfantine (ainsi que pour ses liens avec la suprématie blanche, les crimes de haine et les multiples fusillades de masse) ? L’homme s’appelle Jim Watkins :
    Dans les années 1990, Jim Watkins a inventé un site appelé « Asian Bikini Bar » afin de contourner les lois japonaises concernant la censure de la pornographie. En 2014, Watkins a pris le contrôle de 2channel, qui est en fait la version japonaise de 4Chan. Pendant ce temps, un homme nommé Fredrick Brennan possédait 8Chan, qui a pris son envol lorsque 4Chan a interdit les discussions autour de Gamergate, et tous ces suprémacistes blancs, racistes, et. al, sont passés à 8Chan. Elle a pris une telle ampleur si rapidement que Brennan ne pouvait plus se permettre de l’héberger car personne ne voulait y faire de publicité. Jim Watkins en a donc pris le contrôle en échange d’un emploi et d’une maison aux Philippines, où Jim Watkins vit avec sa femme, qu’il a rencontrée et épousée trois semaines après son départ pour les Philippines en 2001. Watkins est ainsi décrit dans le Washington Post :

    Le parcours de Watkins, qui est passé de marchand de porno à gardien de ce qu’un ancien allié appelait un « cloaque de la haine », semble être né de son désir de tirer profit des recoins les plus sombres d’Internet, en sautant entre les tendances point-com et en se positionnant comme un luminaire excentrique dans les communautés qu’il a contribué à cultiver.

    Beaucoup de milliardaires se sont enrichis pendant la pandémie de #coronavirus [...] selon une nouvelle analyse du think tank de gauche, l’Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), publiée lundi 17 août.

    [.,,]

    La montée en flèche des revenus des milliardaires semble encore plus frappante si on la compare à l’impact économique de la pandémie sur les #États-Unis

    56 millions d’Américains ont demandé des allocations de #chômage au cours des 21 dernières semaines.

  • The Climate Expert Who Delivered News No One Wanted to Hear | The New Yorker
    https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2009/06/29/the-catastrophist

    Hansen, who is sixty-eight, has greenish eyes, sparse brown hair, and the distracted manner of a man who’s just lost his wallet. (In fact, he frequently misplaces things, including, on occasion, his car.) Thirty years ago, he created one of the world’s first climate models, nicknamed Model Zero, which he used to predict most of what has happened to the climate since. Sometimes he is referred to as the “father of global warming,” and sometimes as the grandfather.

    Hansen has now concluded, partly on the basis of his latest modelling efforts and partly on the basis of observations made by other scientists, that the threat of global warming is far greater than even he had suspected. Carbon dioxide isn’t just approaching dangerous levels; it is already there. Unless immediate action is taken—including the shutdown of all the world’s coal plants within the next two decades—the planet will be committed to change on a scale society won’t be able to cope with. “This particular problem has become an emergency,” Hansen said.

    Hansen’s revised calculations have prompted him to engage in activities—like marching on Washington—that aging government scientists don’t usually go in for. Last September, he travelled to England to testify on behalf of anti-coal activists who were arrested while climbing the smokestack of a power station to spray-paint a message to the Prime Minister. (They were acquitted.) Speaking before a congressional special committee last year, Hansen asserted that fossil-fuel companies were knowingly spreading misinformation about global warming and that their chairmen “should be tried for high crimes against humanity and nature.” He has compared freight trains carrying coal to “death trains,” and wrote to the head of the National Mining Association, who sent him a letter of complaint, that if the comparison “makes you uncomfortable, well, perhaps it should.”

    Hansen insists that his intent is not to be provocative but conservative: his only aim is to preserve the world as we know it. “The science is clear,” he said, when it was his turn to address the protesters blocking the entrance to the Capitol Power Plant. “This is our one chance.”

    When Hansen began his modelling work, there were good theoretical reasons for believing that increasing CO2 levels would cause the world to warm, but little empirical evidence. Average global temperatures had risen in the nineteen-thirties and forties; then they had declined, in some regions, in the nineteen-fifties and sixties. A few years into his project, Hansen concluded that a new pattern was about to emerge. In 1981, he became the director of GISS. In a paper published that year in Science, he forecast that the following decade would be unusually warm. (That turned out to be the case.) In the same paper, he predicted that the nineteen-nineties would be warmer still. (That also turned out to be true.) Finally, he forecast that by the end of the twentieth century a global-warming signal would emerge from the “noise” of natural climate variability. (This, too, proved to be correct.)

    Throughout the nineteen-eighties and nineties, the evidence of climate change—and its potential hazards—continued to grow. Hansen kept expecting the political system to respond. This, after all, was what had happened with the ozone problem. Proof that chlorofluorocarbons were destroying the ozone layer came in 1985, when British scientists discovered that an ozone “hole” had opened up over Antarctica. The crisis was resolved—or, at least, prevented from growing worse—by an international treaty phasing out chlorofluorocarbons which was ratified in 1987.

    “At first, Jim’s work didn’t take an activist bent at all,” the writer Bill McKibben, who has followed Hansen’s career for more than twenty years and helped organize the anti-coal protest in D.C., told me. “I think he thought, as did I, If we get this set of facts out in front of everybody, they’re so powerful—overwhelming—that people will do what needs to be done. Of course, that was naïve on both our parts.”

    What is now happening, Hansen explained to the group in New Hampshire, is that climate history is being run in reverse and at high speed, like a cassette tape on rewind. Carbon dioxide is being pumped into the air some ten thousand times faster than natural weathering processes can remove it.

    “So humans now are in charge of atmospheric composition,” Hansen said. Then he corrected himself: “Well, we’re determining it, whether we’re in charge or not.”

    Among the many risks of running the system backward is that the ice sheets formed on the way forward will start to disintegrate. Once it begins, this process is likely to be self-reinforcing. “If we burn all the fossil fuels and put all that CO2 into the atmosphere, we will be sending the planet back to the ice-free state,” Hansen said. “It will take a while to get there—ice sheets don’t melt instantaneously—but that’s what we will be doing. And if you melt all the ice, sea levels will go up two hundred and fifty feet. So you can’t do that without producing a different planet.”

    Once you accept that CO2 levels are already too high, it’s obvious, Hansen argues, what needs to be done. He displayed a chart of known fossil-fuel reserves represented in terms of their carbon content. There was a short bar for oil, a shorter bar for natural gas, and a tall bar for coal.

    “We’ve already used about half of the oil,” he observed. “And we’re going to use all of the oil and natural gas that’s easily available. It’s owned by Russia and Saudi Arabia, and we can’t tell them not to sell it. So, if you look at the size of these fossil-fuel reservoirs, it becomes very clear. The only way we can constrain the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is to cut off the coal source, by saying either we will leave the coal in the ground or we will burn it only at power plants that actually capture the CO2.” Such power plants are often referred to as “clean coal plants.” Although there has been a great deal of talk about them lately, at this point there are no clean-coal plants in commercial operation, and, for a combination of technological and economic reasons, it’s not clear that there ever will be.

    Hansen continued, “If we had a moratorium on any new coal plants and phased out existing ones over the next twenty years, we could get back to three hundred and fifty parts per million within several decades.” Reforestation, for example, if practiced on a massive scale, could begin to draw global CO2 levels down, Hansen says, “so it’s technically feasible.” But “it requires us to take action promptly.”

    “In nearly all areas, the developments are occurring more quickly than had been assumed,” Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, the head of Germany’s Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, recently observed. “We are on our way to a destabilization of the world climate that has advanced much further than most people or their governments realize.”

    Scientifiques et responsablité : une véritable question à dépasser. Si on se limite à ce qui est « acceptable politiquement », est-on encore un scientifique quand la réalité de l’évolution de la planète est en jeu ? C’est à ce moment là qu’on devient un sciento-politique conservateur. La « communauté scientifique » a peur de son ombre, et pas seulement dans ce domaine. Hansen a raison de dire les conséquences politiques de ce que son travail scientifique lui a permis de découvrir.

    But if Hansen’s anxieties about D.A.I. and coal are broadly shared, he is still, among climate scientists, an outlier. “Almost everyone in the scientific community is prepared to say that if we don’t do something now to reverse the direction we’re going in we either already are or will very, very soon be in the danger zone,” Naomi Oreskes, a historian of science and a provost at the University of California at San Diego, told me. “But Hansen talks in stronger terms. He’s using adjectives. He has started to speak in moral terms, and that always makes scientists uncomfortable.”

    Hansen is also increasingly isolated among climate activists. “I view Jim Hansen as heroic as a scientist,” Eileen Claussen, the president of the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, said. “He was there at the beginning, he’s faced all kinds of pressures politically, and he’s done a terrific job, I think, of keeping focussed. But I wish he would stick to what he really knows. Because I don’t think he has a realistic view of what is politically possible, or what the best policies would be to deal with this problem.”

  • UK Deportations 2020: how BA, #Easyjet and other airlines collaborate with the border regime

    The Home Office’s deportation machine has slowed during the corona crisis, with hundreds of people released from detention. But a recent charter flight to Poland shows the motor is still ticking over. Will things just go “back to normal” as the lockdown lifts, or can anti-deportation campaigners push for a more radical shift? This report gives an updated overview of the UK deportation system and focuses in on the role of scheduled flights run by major airlines including: #BA, Easyjet, #Kenya_Airways, #Qatar_Airways, #Turkish_Airlines, #Ethiopian_Airlines, #Air_France, #Royal_Jordanian, and #Virgin.

    On 30 April, with UK airports largely deserted during the Covid-19 lockdown, a Titan Airways charter plane took off from Stansted airport deporting 35 people to Poland. This was just a few days after reports of charter flights in the other direction, as UK farmers hired planes to bring in Eastern European fruit-pickers.

    The Home Office’s deportation machine has slowed during the corona crisis. Hundreds of people have been released from detention centres, with detainee numbers dropping by 900 over the first four months of 2020. But the Poland flight signals that the Home Office motor is still ticking over. As in other areas, perhaps the big question now is whether things will simply go “back to normal” as the lockdown lifts. Or can anti-deportation campaigners use this window to push for a more radical shift?
    An overview of the UK’s deportation machine

    Last year, the UK Home Office deported over seven thousand people. While the numbers of people “removed” have been falling for several years, deportation remains at the heart of the government’s strategy (if that is the term) for “tackling illegal immigration”. It is the ultimate threat behind workplace and dawn raids, rough-sleeper round-ups, “right to rent” checks, reporting centre queues, and other repressive architecture of the UK Border Regime.

    This report gives an overview of the current state of UK deportations, focusing on scheduled flights run by major airlines. Our previous reports on UK deportations have mainly looked at charter flights: where the Home Office aims to fill up chartered planes to particular destinations, under heavy guard and typically at night from undisclosed locations. These have been a key focus for anti-deportation campaigners for a number of reasons including their obvious brutality, and their use as a weapon to stifle legal and direct resistance. However, the majority of deportations are on scheduled flights. Deportees are sitting – at the back handcuffed to private security “escorts” – amongst business or holiday travellers.

    These deportations cannot take place without extensive collaboration from businesses. The security guards are provided by outsourcing company Mitie. The tickets are booked by business travel multinational Carlson Wagonlit. The airlines themselves are household names, from British Airways to Easyjet. This report explains how the Home Office and its private sector collaborators work together as a “deportation machine” held together by a range of contractual relationships.

    Some acknowledgements

    Many individuals and campaign groups helped with information used in this report. In particular, Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants shared their valuable research and legal advice, discussed below.

    We have produced this report in collaboration with the Air Deportation Project led by William Walters at the University of Carleton in Canada, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Corporate Watch received funding from this project as a contribution for our work on this report.

    Names, numbers

    First a quick snapshot of deportation numbers, types and destinations. We also need to clear up some terminology.

    We will use the term “deportations” to refer to all cases where the Home Office moves someone out of the country under direct force (for scheduled flights, this usually means handcuffed to a security “escort”). In the Home Office’s own jargon, these are called “enforced returns”, and the word “deportation” is reserved for people ejected on “public policy” rather than “immigration” grounds – mostly Foreign National Offenders who have been convicted by criminal courts. The Home Office refers to deportations carried out under immigration law euphemistically, calling them “removals” or “returns”.i

    As well as “enforced returns”, there are also so-called “voluntary returns”. This means that there is no direct use of force – no guard, no leg or arm restraints. But the term “voluntary” is stretched. Many of these take place under threat of force: e.g., people are pressured to sign “voluntary return” agreements to avoid being forcibly deported, or as the only chance of being released from detention. In other cases, people may agree to “voluntary return” as the only escape route from a limbo of reporting controls, lack of rights to work or rent legally, or destitution threatened by “no recourse to public funds”.

    In 2019, the Home Office reported a total of 18,782 returns: 7,361 “enforced” and 11,421 “voluntary”.ii
    These figures include 5,110 “Foreign National Offenders” (27%). (The Home Office says the majority of these were enforced returns, although no precise figure is provided.)
    There is a notable trend of declining removals, both enforced and “voluntary”. For example, in 2015 there were 41,789 returns altogether, 13,690 enforced and 28,189 “voluntary”. Both enforced and voluntary figures have decreased every year since then.
    Another notable trend concerns the nationalities of deportees. Europeans make up an increasing proportion of enforced deportations. 3,498, or 48%, of all enforced returns in 2019 were EU citizens – and this does not include other heavily targeted non-EU European nationalities such as Albanians. In 2015, there were 3,848 EU enforced returns – a higher absolute figure, but only 28% of a much higher overall total. In contrast, EU nationals still make up a very small percentage of “voluntary” returns – there were only 107 EU “voluntary returns” in 2019.
    The top nationalities for enforced returns in 2019 were: Romania (18%), Albania (12%), Poland (9%), Brazil (8%) and Lithuania (6%). For voluntary returns they were: India (16%), China (9%), Pakistan (9%).

    We won’t present any analysis of these figures and trends here. The latest figures show continuing evidence of patterns we looked at in our book The UK Border Regime.iii One key point we made there was that, as the resources and physical force of the detention and deportation system are further diminished, the Border Regime is more than ever just a “spectacle” of immigration enforcement – a pose for media and key voter audiences, rather than a realistic attempt to control migration flows. We also looked at how the scapegoat groups targeted by this spectacle have shifted over recent decades – including, most recently, a new focus on European migration accompanying, or in fact anticipating, the Brexit debate.

    Deportation destinations

    Home Office Immigration Statistics also provide more detailed dataiv on the destinations people are “returned” to, which will be important when we come to look at routes and airline involvement. Note that, while there is a big overlap between destinations and nationalities, they are of course not the same thing. For example, many of those deported to France and other western European countries are “third country” removals of refugees under the Dublin agreement – in which governments can deport an asylum seeker where they have already been identified in another EU country.

    Here are the top 20 destinations for deportations in 2019 – by which, to repeat, we mean all enforced returns:

    It is worth comparing these figures with a similar table of top 20 deportation destinations in the last 10 years – between 2010 and 2019. This comparison shows very strongly the recent shift to targeting Europeans.

    The Home Office: who is targeted and how

    As we will see, the actual physical business of deporting people is outsourced to private companies. The state’s role remains giving the orders about who is targeted for arrest and detention, who is then released, and who is forced onto a plane. Here we’ll just take a very quick look at the decision-making structures at work on the government side. This is based on the much more detailed account in The UK Border Regime.

    The main state body responsible for immigration control in the UK is the Home Office, the equivalent of other countries’ Interior Ministries. In its current set-up, the Home Office has three divisions: Homeland Security, which runs security and intelligence services; Public Safety, which oversees the police and some other institutions; and Borders, Immigration and Citizenship. The last of these is further divided into three “directorates”: UK Visas and Immigration, which determines visa and asylum applications; Border Force, responsible for control at the frontiers; Immigration Enforcement, responsible for control within the national territory – including detention and deportations. Immigration Enforcement itself has an array of further departments and units. Regular restructuring and reshuffling of all these structures is known to bewilder immigration officers themselves, contributing to the Home Office’s notoriously low morale.v

    At the top of the tree is the Home Secretary (interior minister), supported by a more junior Immigration Minister. Along with the most senior civil servants and advisors, these ministers will be directly involved in setting top-level policies on deportations.

    For example, an enquiry led by then prisons and probation ombudsman Stephen Shaw into the Yarl’s Wood detention centre revolt in 2002 has given us some valuable insight into the development of modern Home Office deportation policy under the last Labour government. Then Home Secretary Jack Straw, working with civil servants including the Home Office permanent secretary Sir David Omand, introduced the first deportation targets we are aware of, in 2000. They agreed a plan to deport 12,000 people in 2000-1, rising to 30,000 people the next year, and eventually reaching 57,000 in 2003-4.vi

    Nearly two decades later, Home Secretary Amber Rudd was pushed to resign after a leak confirmed that the Home Office continued to operate a deportation targets policy, something of which she had denied knowledge.vii The 2017-18 target, revealed in a leaked letter to Rudd from Immigration Enforcement’s director general Hugh Ind, was for 12,800 enforced returns.viii

    As the figures discussed above show, recent austerity era Conservative governments are more modest than the last Labour government in their overall deportation targets, and have moved to target different groups. Jack Straw’s deportation programme was almost entirely focused on asylum seekers whose claims had been refused. This policy derived from what the Blair government saw as an urgent need to respond to media campaigns demonising asylum seekers. Twenty years on, asylum seekers now make up a minority of deportees, and have been overtaken by new media bogeymen including European migrants.

    In addition, recent Home Office policy has put more effort into promoting “voluntary” returns – largely for cost reasons, as security guards and detention are expensive. This was the official rationale behind Theresa May’s infamous “racist van” initiative, where advertising vans drove round migrant neighbourhoods parading “Go Home” slogans and a voluntary return hotline number.

    How do Home Office political targets translate into operations on the ground? We don’t know all the links, but can trace some main mechanisms. Enforced returns begin with arrests. One of the easiest ways to find potential deportees is to grab people as they walk in to sign at an Immigration Reporting Centre. 80,000 migrants in the UK are “subject to reporting requirements”, and all Reporting Centres include short-term holding cells.ix Other deportees are picked up during immigration raids – such as daytime and evening raids on workplaces, or dawn raids to catch “immigration offenders” in their beds.x

    Both reporting centre caseworkers and Immigration Compliance and Enforcement (ICE) raid squads are issued with targets and incentives to gather deportees. An Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration (ICIBI) report from 2017 explains how reporting centre staff work specifically to deportation targets. The inspector also tells us how:

    Staff at the London Reporting Centres worked on the basis that to meet their removal targets they needed to detain twice the number of individuals, as around half of those detained would later raise a barrier to removal and be released from detention.

    ICE raid teams are set monthly priorities by national and regional commanders, which may include targeting specific nationalities for deportation. For example, the Home Office has repeatedly denied that it sets nationality targets in order to fill up charter flights to particular destinations – but this practice was explicitly confirmed by an internal document from 2014 (an audit report from the director of Harmondsworth detention centre) obtained by Corporate Watch following a Freedom of Information legal battle.xi

    Day-to-day deportation and detention decisions are overseen by a central unit called the National Removals Command (NRC). For example, after ICE raid officers make arrests they must call NRC to authorise individuals’ detention. This decision is made on the basis of any specific current targets, and otherwise on general “removability”.

    “Removability” means the chance of successfully getting their “subject” onto a plane without being blocked by lack of travel documents, legal challenges and appeals, or other obstacles. For example, nationals of countries with whom the UK has a formal deportation agreement are, all other things being equal, highly removable. This includes the countries with which the UK has set up regular charter flight routes – including Albania, Pakistan, Nigeria and Ghana, and more recently Jamaica and a number of EU countries. On the other extreme, some nationalities such as Iranians present a problem as their governments refuse to accept deportees.

    The Home Office: “arranging removal” procedure

    A Home Office document called “Arranging Removal” sets out the steps Immigration Enforcement caseworkers need to take to steer their “subject” from arrest to flight.xii

    On the one hand, they are under pressure from penny-pinching bosses keen to get the job done as quick and cheap as possible. On the other, they have to be careful not to make any mistakes deportees’ lawyers could use to get flights cancelled. Immigration Officers have the legal power to order deportations without the need for any court decision – however, many deportations are blocked on appeal to courts.

    Here are some of the main steps involved:

    Removability assessment. The caseworker needs to assess that: there are no “casework barriers” – e.g., an ongoing asylum claim or appeal that would lead to the deportation being stopped by a court; the detainee is medically “fit to fly”; any family separation is authorised correctly; the detainee has a valid travel document.
    Travel Document. If there is no valid travel document, the caseworker can try to obtain an “emergency travel document” through various routes.
    Executive approval. If all these criteria are met, the caseworker gets authorisation from a senior office to issue Removal Directions (RD) paperwork.
    Risk Assessment. Once the deportation is agreed, the caseworker needs to assess risks that might present themselves on the day of the flight – such as medical conditions, the likelihood of detainee resistance and of public protest. At this point escorts and/or medics are requested. A version of this risk assessment is sent to the airline – but without case details or medical history.xiii
    Flight booking. The caseworker must first contact the Airline Ticketing Team who grant access to an online portal called the Electronic Removal Form (ERF). This portal is run by the Home Office’s flight booking contractor Carlson Wagonlit (see below). Tickets are booked for escorts and any medics as well as the deportee. There are different options including “lowest cost” non-refundable fares, or “fully refundable” – the caseworker here should assess how likely the deportation is to be cancelled. One of the options allows the caseworker to choose a specific airline.
    Notice of removal. Finally, the deportee must be served with a Removal Directions (RD) document that includes notification of the deportation destination and date. This usually also includes the flight number. The deportee must be given sufficient notice: for people already in detention this is standardly 72 hours, including two working days, although longer periods apply in some situations.

    In 2015 the Home Office brought in a new policy of issuing only “removal window” notification in many cases – this didn’t specify the date but only a wide timeframe. The window policy was successfully challenged in the courts in March 2019 and is currently suspended.

    #Carlson_Wagonlit

    The electronic booking system is run by a private company, #Carlson_Wagonlit_Travel (#CWT). CWT is also in charge of contracting charter flights.

    Carlson Wagonlit has been the Home Office’s deportation travel agent since 2004, with the contract renewed twice since then. Its current seven year contract, worth £5.7 million, began in November 2017 and will last until October 2024 (assuming the two year extension period is taken up after an initial five years). The Home Office estimated in the contract announcement that it will spend £200 million on deportation tickets and charters over that seven year period.xiv

    Carlson is a global #business travel services company, i.e., a large scale travel agent and booker for companies and government agencies. Its official head office is in France, but it is 100% owned by US conglomerate #Carlson_Companies Inc. It claims to be active in more than 150 countries.

    A report on “outsourced contracts” by the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration gives us some information on CWT’s previous (2010-17) contract.xv This is unlikely to be substantially changed in the new version, although deportation numbers have reduced since then. The contract involved:

    management of charter flights and ticketing provision for scheduled flights for migrants subject to enforced removal and escorts, where required, and the management of relationships with carriers to maintain and expand available routes. […] Annually, CWT processed approximately 21,000 booking requests from Home Office caseworkers for tickets for enforced removals. Some booking requests were for multiple travellers and/or more than one flight and might involve several transactions. CWT also managed flight rescheduling, cancellations and refunds. The volume of transactions processed varied from 5,000 to 8,000 per month.

    The inspection report notes the value of CWT’s service to the Home Office through using its worldwide contacts to facilitate deportations:

    Both Home Office and CWT managers noted that CWT’s position as a major travel operator had enabled it to negotiate favourable deals with airlines and, over the life of the contract to increase the range of routes available for enforced removals. (Para 5.10).

    The airlines: regular deportation collaborators

    We saw above that Home Office caseworkers book flight tickets through an online portal set up and managed by Carlson Wagonlit Travel. We also saw how CWT is praised by Home Office managers for its strong relationships with airlines, and ability to negotiate favourable deals.

    For charter flight deportations, we know that CWT has developed a particular relationship with one charter company called Titan Airways. We have looked at Titan in our previous reports on charter flight deportations.

    Does the Home Office also have specific preferred airline partners for scheduled flights? Unfortunately, this isn’t an easy question to answer. Under government procurement rules, the Home Office is required to provide information on contracts it signs – thus, for example, we have at least a redacted version of the contract with CWT. But as all its airline bookings go through the intermediary of CWT, there are no such contracts available. Claiming “commercial confidentiality”, the Home Office has repeatedly information requests on its airline deals. (We will look in a bit more depth at this issue in the annex.)

    As a result, we have no centrally-gathered aggregate data on airline involvement. Our information comes from individual witnesses: deportees themselves; their lawyers and supporters; fellow passengers, and plane crew. Lawyers and support groups involved in deportation casework are a particularly helpful reference, as they may know about multiple deportation cases.

    For this report, we spoke to more than a dozen immigration lawyers and caseworkers to ask which airlines their clients had been booked on. We also spoke to anti-deportation campaign groups including Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants, who have run recent campaigns calling on airlines to refuse to fly deportees; and to the trade union Unite, who represent flight crew workers. We also looked at media reports of deportation flights that identify airlines.

    These sources name a large number of airlines, and some names come up repeatedly. British Airways is top of the list. We list a few more prominent collaborators below: Easyjet, Kenya Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines, Royal Jordanian. Virgin Airlines is the only company to have publicly announced it has stopped carrying deportees from the UK – although there have been some questions over whether it is keeping this promise.

    However, the information we have does not allow us to determine the exact nature of the relationship with these airlines. How many airlines appear in the CWT booking system – what determines which ones are included? Does CWT have a preferential arrangement with BA or other frequent deportation airlines? Does the Home Office itself have any direct interaction with these airlines’ management? How many airlines are not included in the CWT booking system because they have refused to carry deportees?

    For now, we have to leave these as open questions.

    British Airways

    We have numerous reports of British Airways flying deportees to destinations worldwide – including African and Caribbean destinations, amongst others. Cabin crew representatives in Unite the Union identify British Airways as the main airline they say is involved in deportation flights.

    The airline has long been a key Home Office collaborator. Back in 2003, at the height of the Labour government’s push to escalate deportations, the “escort” security contractor was a company called Loss Prevention International. In evidence to a report by the House of Commons home affairs committee, its chief executive Tom Davies complained that many airlines at this point were refusing to fly deportees. But he singled out BA as the notable exception, saying: “if it were not for […] the support we get from British Airways, the number of scheduled flight removals that we would achieve out of this country would be virtually nil”.xvi

    In 2010, British Airways’ role was highlighted when Jimmy Mubenga was killed by G4S “escorts” on BA flight 77 from Heathrow to Angola.

    Since 2018, there has been an active calling on BA to stop its collaboration. The profile of this issue was raised after BA sponsored Brighton Pride in May 2018 – whilst being involved in deportations of lesbian and gay migrants to African countries where their lives were in danger. After winning a promise from Virgin Airways to cease involvement in deportations (see below), the group Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants (LGSM) have made BA the main target for their anti-deportation campaigning.

    The campaign has also now been supported by BA cabin crew organised in the union Unite. In December 2019 Unite cabin crew branches passed a motion against airline scheduled flight deportations.xvii

    Kenya Airways

    We have numerous reports from caseworkers and campaigners of Kenya Airways flying deportees to destinations in Africa.

    The typical route is a flight from Heathrow to Nairobi, followed by a second onward flight. People deported using this route have included refugees from Sudan and Somalia.

    Easyjet

    We have numerous reports of Easyjet flying deportees to European destinations. Easyjet appears to be a favoured airline for deportations to Eastern European countries, and also for “third country” returns to countries including Italy and Germany. While most UK scheduled deportations are carried out from Heathrow and Gatwick, we have also seen accounts of Easyjet deportations from Luton.

    Qatar Airways

    We have numerous reports of Qatar Airways carrying deportees to destinations in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. Qatar Airways has carried deportees to Iraq, according to the International Federation of Iraqi Refugees (IFIR), and also to Sudan. (In March 2019 the airline suspended its Sudan route, but this appears to have been restarted – the company website currently advertises flights to Khartoum in April 2020.xviii) Other destinations include Pakistan, Bangladesh, China, Thailand, the Philippines, and Uganda. The typical route is from Heathrow via Doha.

    Turkish Airlines

    We have numerous reports of Turkish Airlines carrying deportees. The typical route is Heathrow or Gatwick to Istanbul, then an onward flight to further destinations including Iraq and Afghanistan. According to the International Federation of Iraqi Refugees (IFIR), Turkish Airlines has been one of the main companies involved in deportations to Iraq. A media report from June 2019 also mentions Turkish Airlines carrying someone being deported to Somalia via Istanbul.xix In August 2017, a Turkish Airlines pilot notably refused to fly an Afghani refugee from Heathrow to Istanbul, en route to Kabul, after being approached by campaigners – but this does not reflect general company policy.xx

    Ethiopian Airlines

    We have reports of this airline deporting people to Ethiopia and other African countries, including Sudan. Flights are from Heathrow to Addis Ababa. In April 2018, high-profile Yarl’s Wood hunger striker Opelo Kgari was booked on an Ethiopian flight to Addis Ababa en route to Botswana.

    Air France

    Air France are well-known for carrying deportees from France, and have been a major target for campaigning by anti-deportation activists there. We also have several reports of them carrying deportees from the UK, on flights from Heathrow via Paris.

    Royal Jordanian

    According to IFIR, Royal Jordanian has been involved in deportations to Iraq.

    Virgin Airlines

    In June 2018, Virgin announced that it had ceased taking bookings for deportation flights. Virgin had previously been a regular carrier for deportations to Jamaica and to Nigeria. (NB: Nigeria is often used as a deportation transit hub from where people are subsequently removed to other African countries.) The announcement came after the Windrush scandal led to the Home Office apparently suspending deportations to the Caribbean, and following campaigning by Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants (LGSM) – although Virgin claimed it had made the decision before being contacted by the campaign. A Virgin statement said:

    we made the decision to end all involuntary deportations on our network, and have already informed the Home Office. We believe this decision is in the best interest of our customers and people, and is in keeping with our values as a company.xxi

    But there are doubts over just how much Virgin’s promise is worth. According to a report by The Independent:

    The airline had agreed to deport a man to Nigeria […] a day after announcing the decision. The only reason he wasn’t removed was because the Home Office agreed to consider new representations following legal intervention.xxii

    Do airlines have a choice?

    In response to its critics, British Airways has consistently given the same reply: it has no choice but to cooperate with the Home Office. According to an August 2018 article in The Guardian, BA says that it has “a legal duty under the Immigration Act 1971 to remove individuals when asked to do so by the Home Office.” A company spokesperson is quoted saying:

    Not fulfilling this obligation amounts to breaking the law. We are not given any personal information about the individual being deported, including their sexuality or why they are being deported. The process we follow is a full risk assessment with the Home Office, which considers the safety of the individual, our customers and crew on the flight.xxiii

    The last parts of this answer fit the process we looked at above. When booking the flight, the Home Office caseworker sends the airline a form called an Airline Risk Report (ARA) which alerts it to risk issues, and specifies why escorts or medics are needed – including an assessment of the likelihood of resistance. But no information should be shared on the deportee’s medical issues or immigration case and reasons for deportation.

    But is it true that an airline would be breaking the law if it refused a booking? Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants have shared with us a legal opinion they received from law firm Duncan Lewis on this issue. We summarise the main points here.

    The law in question is the Immigration Act 1971, Section 27(1)(b)(iii). This states that, when issued the correct legal order by the Home Office, the “owner or agent of a ship or aircraft” must “make arrangements for or in connection with the removal of a person from the United Kingdom when required to do so [by appropriate Removal Directions]”. It is an offence to fail to do so “without reasonable excuse”.

    The offence is punishable by a fine, and potentially a prison sentence of up to six months. As a minor “summary only” offence, any case would be heard by a magistrates’ court rather than a jury.

    In fact many airline captains have refused to carry deportees – as we will see in the next section. But there are no recorded cases of anyone ever being prosecuted for refusing. As with many areas of UK immigration law, there is simply no “case law” on this question.

    If a case ever does come to court, it might turn on that clause about a “reasonable excuse”. The legal opinion explains that the airline might argue they refused to carry a deportee because doing so would present a risk to the aircraft or passengers, for example if there is resistance or protest. A court might well conclude this was “reasonable”.

    On the other hand, the “reasonable excuse” defence could be harder to apply for an airline that took a principled stand to refuse all deportations as a general rule, whether or not there is disruption.

    Again, though, all this is hypothetical as the Home Office has never actually prosecuted anyone. Virgin Airlines, the first company to have publicly stated that it will not fly deportees from the UK, so far has not faced any legal comeback. As reported in the press, a Virgin spokesperson explained the company’s position like this:

    We’ve made the decision to end all involuntary deportations on our network, and have informed the Home Office. We always comply with the law and would continue to comply with legislation; however, we have ended our contractual agreement to carry involuntary deportees.xxiv

    Due to our lack of information on Home Office agreements with airlines, it’s hard to assess exactly what this means. Possibly, Virgin previously had an outstanding deal with the Home Office and Carlson Wagonlit where their tickets came up on the CWT booking portal and were available for caseworkers, and this has now ended. If the Home Office insisted on contacting them and booking a ticket regardless, they might then be pushed to “comply with the law”.

    Above we saw that, according to evidence referred to in a report of the House of Commons home affairs select committee, in 2003 the majority of airlines actually refused to carry deportees, leaving the Home Office to depend almost exclusively on British Airways. Even in this context there were no prosecutions of airlines.

    This is not an uncommon situation across UK immigration law: much of it has never come to court. For example, as we have discussed in reports on immigration raids, there have been no legal cases testing many of the powers of ICE raid squads. To give another example, on numerous occasions campaigners have obstructed buses taking detainees to charter flights without any prosecution – the Stansted 15 trial of protestors blocking a plane inside the airport was the first high-profile legal case following an anti-deportation action.

    Even if the government has a legal case for prosecuting airlines, this could be a highly controversial move politically. The Home Office generally prefers not to expose the violence of its immigration enforcement activities to the challenge of a public legal hearing.

    Resistance

    We want to conclude this report on an upbeat note. Deportations, and scheduled airline flights in particular, are a major site of struggle. Resistance is not just possible but widespread and often victorious. Thousands of people have managed to successfully stop their “removals” through various means, including the following:

    Legal challenges: a large number of flights are stopped because of court appeals and injunctions.
    Public campaigning: there is a strong tradition of anti-deportation campaigning in the UK, usually supporting individuals with media-focused and political activity. Common tactics include: media articles highlighting the individual’s case; enlisting MPs and appealing to ministers; petitions, letters of support; mass phone calls, emails, etc., to airlines; demos or leafletting at the airport targeting air crew and passengers.
    Solidarity action by passengers: in some high-profile cases, passengers have refused to take their seats until deportees are removed. This creates a safety situation for the airline which may often lead to the pilot ordering escorts to remove their prisoner.
    Direct action by detainees: many detainees have been able to get off flights by putting up a struggle. This may involve, for example: physically resisting escorts; taking off clothes; shouting and appealing to passengers and air crew for help. Unless the deportee is extremely strong physically, the balance of force is with the escorts – and sometimes this can be lethal, as in the case of Jimmy Mubenga. However, pilots may often order deportees off their plane in the case of disruption.

    There are many reports of successful resistance using one or more of these tactics. And we can also get some glimpses of their overall power from a few pieces of aggregate information.

    In a 2016 report, the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration revealed one telling figure. Looking at the figures for six months over 2014-15, he found that “on average 2.5 tickets were issued for each individual successfully removed.”xxv Some of this can be put down to the notorious inefficiency of Home Office systems: the Inspection report looks at several kinds of coordination failures between Home Office caseworkers, the escort contractor (at that point a subsidiary of Capita), and Carlson Wagonlit.

    But this is not the biggest factor. In fact, the same report breaks down the reasons for cancellation for a sample of 136 tickets. 51% of the sampled cancellations were the result of legal challenges. 18% were because of “disruptive or non-compliant behaviour”. 2% (i.e., three cases) were ascribed to “airline refusal to carry”.

    Where there is resistance, there is also reaction. As we have discussed in previous reports, one of the main reasons prompting the development of charter flights was to counter resistance by isolating deportees from passengers and supporters. This was very clearly put in 2009 by David Wood, then strategic director of the UK Border Agency (Home Office), who explained that the charter flight programme is:

    “a response to the fact that some of those being deported realised that if they made a big enough fuss at the airport – if they took off their clothes, for instance, or started biting and spitting – they could delay the process. We found that pilots would then refuse to take the person on the grounds that other passengers would object.”xxvi

    For both deportees and supporters, charter flights are much harder to resist. But they are also very expensive; require specific diplomatic agreements with destination countries; and in some cases (Iraq, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka) have been blocked by legal and political means.xxvii The Home Office cannot avoid the use of scheduled flights for the majority of deportations, and it will continue to face resistance.

    Annex: issues with accessing airline information

    We will expand a bit here on the issues around obtaining information on the Home Office’s relationships with airlines.

    Under UK and EU public sector procurement rules, central government departments are obliged to publish announcements of all contracts valued over £10,000, including on the contractsfinder website. However, there is no publicly available information on any contracts between the Home Office and specific airlines. This is legally justifiable if the Home Office has no direct contractual agreements with airlines. It has a signed contract with Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT), which is published in a redacted form; and CWT then makes arrangements with airlines on a per-ticket basis.

    The Home Office certainly has knowledge of all the tickets booked on its behalf by CWT – indeed, they are booked by its own employees through the CWT maintained portal. And so it certainly knows all the airlines working for it. But it has refused all requests for this information, using the excuse of “commercial confidentiality”.

    There have been numerous attempts to request information on deportation airlines using the Freedom of Information Act.xxviii All have been refused on similar grounds. To give one standard example, in December 2018 A. Liberadzki requested statistics for numbers of removals carried out by British Airways and other scheduled airlines. The response confirmed “that the Home Office holds the information that you have requested.” However, it argued that:

    “we have decided that the information is exempt from disclosure under sections 31(1)e and 43(2) of the FOIA. These provide that information can be withheld if its disclosure would have a detrimental effect on the Home Office and its ability to operate effective immigration controls by carrying out removals or would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of any persons (including the public authority holding it).”

    In April 2019 Kate Osamor MP put similar questions to the Home Secretary in parliament.xxix She received the same reply to all her questions:

    “The Home Office does not disclose the details or values of its commercial contracts. Doing so could discourage companies from dealing with the Home Office.”

    Of course this answer is blatantly false – as we just saw, the Home Office is legally obliged to disclose values of commercial contracts over £10,000.

      « Du rail au ring. La trajectoire de Shane Rory reproduit en partie celle de Jim Tully, l’auteur de ce texte publié en 1936 et jusqu’ici inédit en français. À l’image de Jack London, qu’il voyait comme un piètre commentateur de la geste pugiliste, Tully a connu de longues années de débine, qui animeront son œuvre future. Abonné à l’orphelinat, adolescent vagabond, garçon de ferme, il opte en dernier ressort pour la #boxe qu’il pratique quelques années en professionnel. C’est finalement par l’écriture qu’il se réalise et rencontre la célébrité. Doté d’une plume sèche et nerveuse, l’aspirant écrivain n’oubliera jamais d’où il vient : les bas-fonds. » Émilien Bernard, Le Canard enchaîné.
