The issue of migrants has been very important for the RCN. The RCN was central to getting the SSP to support the free movement of people and affiliating to ‘No One Is Illegal’.  After ceasing to be a platform in the SSP on June 22nd 2012 , the RCN continued placing emphasis on the importance of work in supporting migrants. It raised the issue of migrants in the Radical Independence Campaign, in the Brexit campaign, and our successor organisation, the Republican Communist Forum continues to do so in ‘the context of ‘Brexit Britain’ and the rise of the Hard and Far Right.
