The UK is the only country in Europe that detains people indefinitely.  Calling for that policy to end, Refugee Tales shares the stories of those who have experienced  detention through a series of anthologies published by Manchester’s own Comma Press.

 

Join author Monica Ali, and writer and co-editor David Herd, as they read extracts and discuss their contributions to Comma Press’s Refugee Tales series.

Running alongside this event from 5.00pm to 8.00pm there will be a Meet the Activists marketplace where you can meet people working locally to end immigration detention.  Find out when and where they hold their meetings and protests and how you can get involved.

Suitable for 16+

Part of PHM’s year long programme exploring migration, co-created by a Community Programme Team made up of people whose lives have been shaped by migration.
