“These Walls Must Fall” Workshop 2: Campaigning for Change

Mon 1 Jul 2019, 6pm, Victoria Hall, entrance on Chapel Walk S1 2JB

People are being taken from our communities and locked up in prison-like detention centres, without time limit, with no idea of when they might be released. Why? They just don’t (yet) have the correct immigration papers...

“These Walls Must Fall” is an initiative started by Right to Remain, building a network of locally-based community campaigns, part of the growing movement to end immigration detention. People are pushing the campaign through their community groups, voluntary organisations, charities, trade unions, activist groups, faith communities, student societies, sports clubs, etc. This follows an earlier listed event on 17th June.

This workshop will introduce the campaign, and discuss how it can be built in Sheffield and the surrounding areas.

To register, please email the name of the person who wants to attend to contact@detention.org.uk, along with any accessibility needs, which they will do their best to accommodate.

UBI Lab Meet-up

Wed 3 Jul 2019, 6.30pm, Quaker Meeting House, St. James St. S1 2EW

Sheffield City Council has passed a motion giving its support to a pilot of Universal Basic Income (UBI) in the city. Sheffield could become the first English city to trial universal basic income. Join this UBI Lab Meet-up with a speaker for the first hour, and Working Group Update for the second hour.

Jason Leman, Chair of UBI Lab Sheffield, says "Sheffield has a long history of leading radical change, from the Chartists through to the Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire. We don’t know if a Universal Basic Income is the answer to the problems we face, but a pilot will give us the much-needed evidence about what works. Having a real safety net seems to help people’s health and wellbeing. It helps people who are looking after their family and it could also give people the confidence to retrain, volunteer or become entrepreneurs."
