Our quiz night compered, chaired and championed by three local MPs, all leading activists for the rights and dignity of those abandoned by a harsh and inhumane system, will aim to challenge, inform and leave no stone unturned on the UK’s asylum process.
The themes and questions will be developed in collaboration with Haringey Migrant Support Group, Birth Companions and The Helen Bamber Foundation. The questions will focus on the human, psychological and financial cost to the individual attempting to navigate the tortuous and hostile journey towards the safety and security that all coming here seek.
Our community contains incredibly rich seams of generosity and humanity but those contributing to PramDepot and other organisations that support asylum seekers, have varying degrees of knowledge and understanding of the numbing levels of struggle and stress facing those seeking the most basic of human rights for themselves and their babies. A mother and baby in one tiny room, scraping together the bare essentials on £35 per week, standing in Home Office queues in the cold and the rain, with their Leave to Remain refused, appealing, waiting – always waiting and often alone.
The evening will incorporate a Q&A session and an opportunity for discussion – so be prepared to listen, learn, participate, share, enlighten and be enlightened. And some of us may leave feeling better equipped to help counter the ‘Hostile Environment’ and campaign for human rights and dignity for all.
