As the state and media continue to ramp up their punitive and divisive attacks on our communities, the need for collective action and mutual aid grows. Join us on the 4th March as we welcome a range of local groups to Islington Mill to build upon and strengthen existing networks of community solidarity.Alongside groups working directly to challenge and dismantle the hostile environment, this space will be open to any groups fighting against violent systems of oppression. These issues are interlinked and our organising must reflect this. The day will consist of a mixture of stalls and talks hosted by these groups. Come through to find out how to get involved with and support the vital work that they do.
We will also be running a banner making session and providing food and drink on a pay as you feel basis (the Partisan bar will not be selling alcohol, as this event will be a sober space). If you are currently involved with work / organising that is in line with the aims of this event and would like to be involved with it, please reach out to either No Borders (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Building Bridges (email@example.com)This event will be free to attend. We will be accepting donations – with any profits going towards
No Borders’ coffee mornings for asylum seekers in Greater Manchester. Stay tuned for more information re programming + for details of a fundraiser party immediately following this day event. Love and solidarity Big thanks to @cutwerk for the graphic.
