Immigrants didn’t cause the crisis!

When Amal and her friends took on the government over a classmate under threat of deportation, little did she know that her group, the Glasgow Girls anti-deportation campaign would end up being a musical. A passionate voice against rising racism and resentment of refugees and immigrants, she’s headlining York Stand Up To UKIP’s pre-election campaign public meeting on Tuesday 10th March. Joining her will be three local Parliamentary Candidates.

Come hear Amal Azzudin’s story and launch our anti-UKIP campaign

The meeting starts at 7.30pm at Friends Meeting House, Friargate, YO1 9RL. Also speaking are general election candidates Rachel Maskell (Labour), Megan Ollerhead (TUSC) and Jonathan Tyler (Green), plus Karen Miller of York TUC and Professor Simon Parker of Refugee Action York and a lecturer in politics at the University of York. It promises to be a great night, celebrating the presence of migrants in our communities and looking to challenge the rise of xenophobia in today’s political debate.
