Afiach & A-Grrrlz raised £165 for Movement for Justice

May 31, 2017

Thanks to all the performers who came and contributed their poems, writing and music – we raised £165 for the Shut Down Yarl’s Wood Campaign.

On a separate note, we would like to apologise for organising a gig without any women of colour on the line-up, when we were raising money for women of colour caged in Yarl’s Wood’s inhumane detention centre. We didn’t think about the repercussions of re-creating the saviour/victim narrative, and thanks to those who called us out and educated us.
