Refugee Tales at University of Sussex 25/11

On Monday 25th November 2019 we are pleased to present a night of readings, poetry and music in Room 76, Falmer House.

Reading from the powerful book “Refugee Tales” we will share the stories of individuals who have experienced Britains policy of indefinite immigration detention.

Joining us will be David Herd, a co-editor and contributor to this moving book who give us a reading and take part in a Q&A. We will also have a talk from students from co-hosts Sussex Student Action for Refugees

In our changing political landscape, and with climate change meaning we will see even more human displacement, we need to stand as allies against the continued dehumanisation of some of the most vulnerable people in the world; the refugee.

Stop hostile environment policies. End indefinite detention.

Please consider supporting the incredible work of Gatwick Detainees Welfare Group, the organisation behind this book, which works within Brook House and Tinsley House detention centres in Gatwick to listen, record and change these stories.

Doors open 7pm. Event starts 7.30pm-10.30pm. Entry is £3 donation.
