Solidarity Sessions, Bristol

Thursday 6th June
10:00am – 16:00pm

Trinity Centre, Bristol, BS2 0NW 



What will the event be like?

We will use the day to think locally about the migration justice movement, and how we can build on current campaigns, and plan for new ones. The day will also provide an opportunity to connect with local grassroots organisations standing in solidarity with people in the asylum and immigration system, as well as local campaign groups.

You can expect to:

  • Participate in Legal Education workshops, looking at the asylum system, the lack of legal advice, and how to give legal support safely
  • Hear from Right to Remain’s These Walls Must Fall campaigners on work they are doing on the ground, including recent demos against the Rwanda Act
  • Hear from local Bristol partners on current actions
  • Brainstorm and plan for possible future actions
  • Connect and build solidarity with other groups and organisations in and around Bristol

We will also look at the current evolving Rwanda situation, and what we can do to respond and stand in solidarity with our communities.
