Metaceptive – Justice, Rights & Resistance

25th September 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Celebrating 30 years of JUSTICE, RIGHTS AND RESISTANCE by Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit.

Featuring ‘Declaration’ music and VJ performance by Tagné+Kooj, live video link with activist Viraj Mendis, Poetry and readings by Louise Wallwein MBE, DJ Tony Openshaw, speakers from GMIAU and These Walls Must Fall, Food/Drink and more.

GMIAU is marking its 30th birthday with an evening of music and discussion, featuring a special performance of ‘Declaration’ by Kooj Chuhan and Tagne Tebu. Combining live music and projected visuals, they have collaborated with GMIAU and These Walls Must Fall to create this thought-provking and emotive work. The event will look back on successful campaigns against racist immigration policies and discuss future challenges in the continued fight for immigration justice.

Speakers will include Viraj Mendis on live link from Germany (whose anti-deportation campaign led to the founding of GMIAU), playwright and poet Louise Wallwein MBE, Denise McDowell from GMIAU, These Walls Must Fall and others TBC. There will be music from veteran campaigner/DJ Tony Openshaw and we‘ll have food and drink available for a donation.

All donations on the night will go directly to GMIAU, enabling them to continue their work, changing people’s lives and challenging the hostile environment.

Over the last 30 years, GMIAU has been at the forefront of the fight for immigration justice in Greater Manchester: we exist to unlock the legal solutions that allow people to live without fear, plan for their futures and put down roots in the UK. The Unit provides free, expert and caring immigration and asylum legal advice for all those who need it, as the only specialist not-for-profit legal organisation in the North West.
