At a time when destitution and racist attacks on former detainees have increased, and self-harm and suicide attempts have increased in detention, we hope you will walk with us in solidarity with refugees and detainees.

The walk is along the Thames Path and evening performances take place in : Walton on Thames, Kingston, Brentford, Hammersmith and Westminster.

Comma had the pleasure of publishing the accompanying book for last year's walk, and will do the same this year. All profits from the sales of the book go towards go to the Gatwick Detainee Welfare Group and Kent Help for Refugees.
