A day for asylum seekers

On Friday the 10th of August a one-day workshop will take place in Cardiff that will look at the destitution, imprisonment and deportation for those who seek refuge and support.

.

The asylum and immigration issue is one of the most controversial amongst the world’s governments.

While countries and their media debate their responsibilities, migration has become a constant worldwide phenomenon, as a consequence of oppression and conflict.

Nowadays we hear lots about cases of human rights violations against detainees and refugees fleeing torture, war and poverty.

Many remain homeless once their cases have been rejected by the courts. Men, women and children are being detained arbitrarily and indefinitely.

For this reason, this event aims to offer a wide view of the situation of refugees including information on their destitution, detention and deportation in the UK.

The day will be divided into sessions so that people may choose which is most relevant to them and can therefore attend that part or the full day.

Destitution

This section will be handled by Asylum Support Appeals Project (ASAP) a national charitable organisation that is dedicated to the protection of asylum seekers’ right to food and housing.

Detention

The workshop on jobs will be lead by a volunteer from the charity organisation Gatwick Detainee Welfare Group (GWDG), a group dedicated to the practical and emotional support of asylum seekers and detained immigrants.

Deportation

The last session will be lead by the National Coalition of Anti-Deportation Campaigns (NCADC), a national organisation that supports campaigns led by the community of justice, in the asylum and immigration system, focused on aiding those who find themselves being forcefully evicted.

Also attending will be the Network of Women of Ethnic Minorities in Wales (MEWN Cymru).
