Event description

Description

On Saturday, December 2nd, in collaboration with the Migration Collective, Consented brings you Migration and Imperialism, a day of film screenings, group discussions and workshops.

This event is part of the wider London Migration Film Festival 2017 and it take places at the Migration Museum in Lambeth, South London.

On the day we will screen two films. The first is entitled Violent Borders and looks at the violence of borders and the racism and inhumanity of mass deportation charter flights. And the second is entitled Working Illegally and explores looks behind politicians' rhetoric, the closed walls and barbed wire of UK border enforcement, to expose the reality of immigration detention, raising pressing questions concerning its nature and purpose.

After each film is screened, we will open up the floor to the audience in order to further explore the themes covered and discuss the current state of affairs in regards to migration and imperialism.

Finally, the day will end with a workshop run by Strike Magazine that will look at the following:

• Why we need to end mass deportations (e.g. The moral case, the tactical case, and how this fits into the current political context in the UK).

• Introducing casework and direct Action within the strategy to end mass deportations.

• Practical steps for how participants can get involved.

Finally, some of the money raised by the sale of tickets will be donated to SOAS Detainee Support, a student-led initiative working in solidarity with migrants in and outside detention centres, aiming to reduce isolation through visits, to empower detainees and campaign to put an end to the use of immigration detention.

As always, if you’d like to attend but cannot afford the ticket price, please contact us at consenteduk@gmail.com and we’ll try and work something out.
