    Asylum Seekers Right to Work and free training

    6.15-8.30pm The Sanctuary 37-39 Chapel Walk, Sheffield

    People seeking asylum are usually not allowed to work while the Home Office processes their asylum application. As many of us know, this can take years Lift the Ban is a new national campaign which seeks to win the right of people seeking asylum to work and SYMAAG is one its members. At the moment Lift The Ban are asking for testimonies from people denied the right to work - you can contribute here
    To help SYMAAG campaign effectively for asylum seekers' right to work they have arranged free training organised by Everyday Activism. There's an introductory session for an introductory session. Let SYMAAG know if you are interested. They can pay reasonable travel expenses. All are welcome, whether it's your first campaign or the 1000th, whether you have been active in the UK or in your country of origin. It's open to all, not only people seeking asylum. SYMAAG would particularly welcome trade unionists, whether you are aware of the situation facing people seeking asylum or not. Already Barnsley Trades Council have declared themselves a Trades Council of Sanctuary.
