This item has expired, and will soon be unavailable for viewing

Migrant Voices Across Europe   #FirstWeds Wed June 3rd 7pm

Livestream Link: https://youtu.be/1NOR-pFTuQ0

Our June FirstWeds will be a discussion with migrant-led organisations from four countries in Europe – France, Italy, Slovenia and Ireland - to hear about what different migrant communities are experiencing during the current crisis, and what state and community responses have been in each context.

Our participants will also explore both the major challenges and the opportunities for allyship from people who are interested in local and transnational collective responses that stem from a place of compassion.

The panel includes people from Movements of Asylum Seekers Ireland (MASI), who are working to abolish the Direct Provision system.  From Italy  we will hear from Arci Porco Rosso (Sans-Papiers Drop-In), a non-profit organization that was created to support the needs of migrants, regardless of their legal status, and to inform them of their rights upon entering Europe.

Other speakers will be confirmed asap. The conversation will be facilitated by Eilish Dillon from the Dept of International Development in Maynooth.   Comhlámh is grateful for the support of Concern for our #FirstWeds events
