Join RAMSI + MASI for this month's Solidarity Dinner!
Wow, the time flies! The Solidarity Dinner is coming around again soon and we hope loads of you will join us!
A wonderful opportunity to eat good food, meet new people and raise much needed funds for those seeking refuge and migrating in Ireland and abroad. Families and children are welcome.
*Suggested donation is €5 per plate (if you have less that’s fine, if you can give more – great!)*
Let's come together to share a meal, have a chat and get to know each other - let's challenge the separation and isolation the system of Direct Provision creates by coming together as people going through DP, people who've migrated to Ireland and been on the move and local people in a spirit of friendship, fun and solidarity. There'll be speakers, musicians, face-painting, yummy food and new friends to be made ♥
Money raised at the dinner will go towards supporting the work of MASI - the Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland, and towards funding transport for people coming to the dinners from direct provision centres outside of Dublin.
MASI - is an independent platform for asylum seekers to join together in unity and purpose. The collective seeks justice, freedom and dignity for all asylum seekers. They campain and struggle for the end of the system of direct provision, the right to work and education, and oppose deportations.
More info at http://www.masi.ie/
Speakers from MASI will update us on their work and actions, and about whats been going on with the struggle to End Direct Provision.
This is vital work, and to be able to continue to engage effectively with these issues we need to support each other. We hope LOADS of you lovely beautiful people can make it! We'll share food and stories, learn about DP (a system which has been described as 'state sanctioned child poverty and exclusion', 'open prisons', and a 'system of privatised institutional abuse') and hear from those seeking asylum about the struggle they are leading to challenge the system.
If you'd like to contribute a dish for the dinner, please let us know so we can coordinate :) - Send us a message!
