carnival of resistance to the hostile environment 19 June 2022

This year marks 10 years since UK politicians declared a Hostile Environment against migrants and refugees - rules and policies that criminalise, marginalise and deny justice and dignity to migrant and racialised communities in Britain.

Join us on Sunday 19th June to commemorate a decade of struggle and community resilience, and to connect and learn key skills for the struggle going forward. There will be interactive workshops, arts and crafts stations, activities for kids and families, music, dancing, and space to reflect and plan for how we continue to organise together in our communities, to build the movement for migrant justice, and to win!

The Carnival of Resistance is part of the #SolidarityKnowsNoBorders week of action from 13th - 19th June. Find out more about actions and events happening across the country at an online rally on 25 May - sign up here!

CARNIVAL FEATURING:

- Anti-Raids, Housing and Know Your Rights Workshops

- Food generously provided by Refugee Community Kitchen and Cooperation Town
