This event has been organised by our friends at the Sussex Refugee and Migrant Self Support Group and the Jollof Cafe.
Their description of the event is:
We want to challenge the conventional perceptions of migration. We all move. We are all migrants. We want to build a movement that resists the racism of borders and celebrates diversity and human freedom.
We have put together a panel of activists, thinkers and human rights practitioners to give an overview of current situation, a glimpse of the future and to start build a path ahead.
