Horizons Festival – Lift the Ban Creative Workshop

Refugee Action, one of the 60 organisations supporting the 2016 Refugees Welcome Here march, calling on the government to do more to welcome refugees here in the UK. The march was organised by Solidarity with Refugees and held on the 17th of September 2016, Westminster, Central London, UK.

Hear directly from asylum seekers and refugees about the impact of Britain’s policy of banning asylum seekers from working; a policy which leaves sanctuary seekers without agency or the ability to contribute to Britain’s economy, often for long periods of time. This policy is currently being challenged by the national Lift the Ban campaign which is supported by a large coalition of organisations including Refugee and Asylum Seeker Voice, Refugee Action, Asylum Matters, CAN and HOME.

Led by members of Refugee and Asylum Seeker Voice, and Asylum Matters, the workshop will give you the opportunity to find out more, ask questions and get involved.
