Join our National Conference on 16 July

Posted: 20 June 2022

Join the Labour Campaign for Free Movement for a national gathering to decide our next steps to fight for a socialist immigration policy

When: 16 July 2022
Where: Birkbeck, University of London, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HX

From the racist Nationality and Borders Act to the sickening cruelty of the Rwanda plan, the Tory government is escalating its attacks on migrants. It is time for the unions and the Labour Party to step up. Our movement must provide solidarity where it is most needed. We need to resist the anti-migrant agenda without apology – migrants’ rights are workers’ rights, and border violence is class warfare.

The Labour Campaign for Free Movement (LCFM) is gathering in London on Saturday 16th July 2022 to build the movement that will stand up for all migrants, resist the Hostile Environment at every level, and win the fight for a humane, socialist and internationalist immigration policy.

LCFM is an organisation of Labour members and supporters, including MPs, Councillors and trade unionists, committed to defending and extending free movement and migrants’ rights. We intend to use our first national meeting since 2019 as a springboard for action.

Join us for a day of workshops, discussions, and planning to shape our fightback. We’ll bring you brilliant speakers from the frontline of struggle and a range of participatory panels on key issues, enabling us all to learn and build together.

We will be joined by Nadia Whittome MP, and host a range of workshops on workers against borders, how to stop deportations, closing all detention centres, migrants in trade unions, and many other topics.

This will also be a chance to discuss our strategy and plan the way forward, in Labour and beyond. If you want to get more involved in the campaign, you’ll have the opportunity to stand for our Steering Committee as well.

There will be a creche available for attendees who need childcare to be able to attend (free, please donate if you wish). If you need to book in for the creche, please book the “General Admission plus creche” ticket option by 10am Saturday 9 July.
