Leicester Migration Network: Screening of ‘Everyday Borders’

Please join for the screening and discussion of ‘Everyday Borders’ organised by the Leicester Migration Network.

Everyday Borders (dir. Orson Nava) was made by Migrants’ Rights Network (MRN), UEL, Southall Black Sisters, RAMFEL and a number of other migrants’ rights groups.

This film screening will be an opportunity to discuss some of the aspects of the new immigration legislation and new requirements for different professions to act as border guards when performing their jobs:

“’Everyday Borders’ sets out what is happening in our towns and communities as the business of immigration control extends beyond borders to the relationships that exist in workplaces, the times we use public services like the NHS, as we move around our high streets and public transport systems” – MRN

After the screening there will be a panel-led discussion with speakers, including WEA’s  Organiser from Leicester, Karen Chouhan. This will be an excellent opportunity to consider the important issues the film raises.

Date and time: Wednesday October 28 at 6pm

Location: University of Leicester, Attenborough Building room 206. For the campus map please see: https://www2.le.ac.uk/offices/sas2/assessments/external/documents/campus-map
