Join us for ‘We Want Freedom!’, a national These Walls Must Fall online event at this crucial time in the fight for migrant justice.
The devastating ‘Borders Bill’ is in Parliament for the second reading right now. It could bring unprecedented changes to the UK immigration system, which already treats people who come to the UK incredibly cruelly.
🗣️Speakers from across the movement will discuss the whole system of deportation and detention, how we can fight it at every stage, and how local acts of solidarity can make a difference.
💪You’ll hear from speakers who’ve been through detention, faced deportation, and got out, and how they did it.
💪You’ll hear about the way detention is changing, from people campaigning around the Napier barracks and against new forms of detention in the UK.
💪Local campaigners who got people off the deportation flights this summer will tell you how they did it, how you can do it too, and how we can organise together against the hostile environment and the immigration enforcement system.
💪We’ll also cover how you can prepare yourself or others in case you are detained to keep as safe as possible, and how communities can give practical solidarity to those living under the government’s eye. We’ll hear the latest from the national movement to fight the government’s ‘Borders Bill’ and hostile environment.
