On Thursday we’ll be showing the premiere of a documentary film about the situation for migrants in Calais made by one of our group: Passengers is the personal account of a few people stuck in a place they don’t want to be, a collection of interviews with people seeking sanctuary. It’s No Borders South Wales meets Calais Migrant Solidarity. It’s on from 7.30pm in room 0.53 of the Bute Building, Cardiff University (map). It’s free entry and we’ll also be showing some other films about the situation in Calais and have a report back from some of the group who have just returned.
Here’s some stills from the film:
The appearance of Louise Perrett in front of the Home Affairs Select Committee on Tuesday has led to the story appearing in Telegraph, Metro, Daily Star and even the Daily Mail! There’s also been more blog reaction at LGBT Asylum News and on forums people are asking who is happy with the attitude of UKBA staff and discussing what to make of the situation. Of course with these revelations running in complete opposition to the narrative being peddled by so much of the gutter press, coverage is bound to be limited. Please help raise the profile of this story.
