Building has step-free access and accessible toilets.

Workshops last weekend

BIG thanks to everyone who participated in one of our workshops on Saturday.  SDS went transmetropolitan, delivering simultaneous workshops at Get Organised! in London and PowerShift in Manchester.

With great contributions from participants we discussed immigration detention in the UK, how it fits into a wider tapestry of border controls, as well as how to challenge border violence & immigration prisons.
