We’ve been invited to contribute to Get Organised!, a day of workshops and discussions bringing together people and groups that are interested in or campaigning on the key issues of 2017 such as migrant solidarity, precarious work, the Far Right, housing or gentrification. Full programme for the day here.
Saturday 8th July, 11am-5.30pm
Waterloo Action Centre
14 Baylis Road
Right now, 3000 people are locked up in UK immigration detention centres – without charge or trial, and without knowing when they will be released. Often they have been wrenched out of their families and communities, detained in raids on their homes or workplaces, or transferred to detention at the end of a prison sentence.
In this workshop we’ll be discussing:
- What is immigration detention? Why does it exist and who does it affect?
- How do struggles for an end to detention link into other struggles for social justice?
- How can we challenge detention and support people inside?
Get Organised! is free to attend but please register for the day here.
