University of Manchester, October 16: These Walls Must Fall event


Poster for event

Detention and the threat of detention affects staff and students at universities in Manchester, and members of the local community. It’s time to get informed, and take action.

These Walls Must Fall is a grassroots campaign to challenge immigration detention. At the University of Manchester, we are bringing together a panel of practitioners, academics and experts by experience to raise awareness of immigration detention and look at what we can do on and off campus to take action.

Speakers include:

Louise Tomkow, Researcher on Forced Migration, University of Manchester

Mariam Yusuf, Campaigner, Women Asylum Seekers Together

Dr Rebecca Farrington, Senior Clinical Lecturer, University of Manchester and GP with specialism in mental health of asylum seekers

Denise McDowell, Director, Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit


On reaching the UK, people face a hostile environment. Without help, many will be forcibly sent back to the wars, persecution and misery they have fled.

Your donation will help us to help people in their struggle for the right to remain in the UK, and to campaign for migration justice

    As a retired staff member of the University of Manchester and having presented expert evidence to a number of CG cases at UT level, I lend my wholehearted support to your campaign.
