Child Migrants Welcome?
The Migration Museum, 26 Lambeth High Street, London
Come to the screening of a series of short films by Child Migrant Stories about the welcome and non-welcome experienced by young people who have migrated to the UK – from Syrian children on the Isle of Bute, to Iraqi Kurdish youth in Norwich, to Eritreans in Harrow.
Hear from friends, teachers, lawyers, religious leaders, activists and therapists – as well as from the young people themselves. Learn about those who are campaigning for legal and safe routes to the UK of unaccompanied children in Europe as well as the implications of Brexit.
The films will be followed by a discussion with those featured in the films including Lord Dubs, who came over on the Kinderstransport 80 years ago and who is leading a campaign for the UK to accept 10,000 unaccompanied child migrants over the next 10 years.
