The next Tuesday Night Project barbecue is on Tuesday 21st July from 6pm at Nottingham and Notts Refugee Forum (Square Centre). This month we have a Zimbabwean theme to the night as our friends from Nottingham Zimbabwean Community Network are helping to prepare and cook the food. There will be plenty of good food and music and lots to do. Any donations of cash, food or refreshments are welcome.
The barbecue is followed by a meeting organised by members of the Tuesday Night Project and No Borders Nottingham. The meeting will give a report back from Calais No Borders Camp and give an opportunity for members of the Zimbabwean community to talk about the current situation in Zimbabwe. Everyone is welcome. Hope to see you there.
Update: In addition to the newletters, have a look at this article from South Wales No Borders reflecting on the success of the Calais NB camp after it finished.
Amidst a great deal of negative news reporting, the No Borders Camp in Calais has begun. The camp is producing a daily newspaper Nomade in French and English so you can find out what’s really going on!
