Right to Remain’s Annual Gathering 2024: Preparing for our collective future: building knowledge, radical solidarity and power is just around the corner! 

Here’s a sneak preview of what we are hoping to cover on 19 March in Birmingham. 

We will start the day with a horizon scanning panel discussion. We will be exploring factors that might have an impact on the migration justice movement in the future. The panelists are:

This will be followed by three workshops, to build our knowledge:. 

  • Exploring accommodation solutions for people with NRPF and refugees Facilitated by Tom MacPherson and Bridget Young (NACCOM)
  • Protecting our communities from harm: detention and enforcement – beginners’ guide Facilitated by Eiri Ohtani and Maggy Moyo (Right to Remain). With assistance from Manono and Teresa (These Walls Must Fall Campaigners).
  • Being proactive: How to work with your lawyer in your asylum/immigration claim – taster session Facilitated by Yumna Kamel and Leah Cowling (Right to Remain) 

In the afternoon, we will put our heads together, to start preparing for our collective future of radical solidarity and power. Destitution, detention and campaigning were the three top topics identified through our pre-event questionnaire. We are organising two panel discussions and group activities accordingly, with a range of speakers. 

Panel 1 – Navigating asylum and migrant destitution: what are new tactics and strategies?

Speakers are:

Panel 2 – Protecting our communities against immigration enforcement: communities pushing back against state violence.

Speakers are:

We are expecting around 80 people, attending from all corners of the UK. We look forward to seeing them on 19 March. We are very sorry that we could not accommodate everyone who requested a ticket: we hope we can host a bigger event next year.
