 Migrant Voice - A platform for migrants to share their stories

Kate Ng

A number of immigrants in the UK, including some of Migrant Voice's own members, have taken the opportunity to tell The Guardian about their experiences in a one-day takeover launched on The Guardian's website, called 100 Stories. The collection includes immigrants from Zimbabwe, Portugal, Dublin, Kenya, Pakistan, Bulgaria, Canada and many more countries. The aim of the collection is to move the debate away from speaking about in transactional terms, “arguing over what it does for and to us”. Jonathan Freedland, The Guardian's executive editor, said in his introduction to the takeover: “Opponents say migrants are a drain on the economy; defenders say they add to the country's prosperity and cultural richness. What's missing is the experience of migrants themselves.”
