Building the campaign, planning for action

Thursday 1st February

People are being taken from our communities and locked up in prison-like detention centres, without time limit, with no idea of when they might be released. Not for having committed a crime – They just don’t have the correct immigration papers. This is unacceptable. Detention has to end.

Following the Greater Manchester campaign launch in November 2017, this meeting will get down to planning local action to challenge detention and build the campaign.

We have a LOT of ideas already, and people are ready to take action. All we need now is… YOU!

With representatives from migrant communities, unions, universities, faith communities, activist groups and community groups, we will be making concrete plans for how we as a community are going to challenge detention – and we want you to join us! This meeting will be focussed on action planning, so please come along if you want to be part of the grassroots movement in Greater Manchester against detention.
