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.
