Invitation to the launch of Asylum Monologues from Actors for Refugees

‘you know before the war in my country, I was not even thinking about coming here. I was happy. I was with my family, everything was OK. Why should I want to go? But things happen.'

This is happening at Amnesty on Sunday 25 June at the end of Refugee Week.

Asylum Monologues is an account of the UK’s asylum system, told first hand by the people who have experienced it.

5pm, Sunday 25th June at Amnesty International’s Human Rights Action Centre, 17-25 New Inn Yard, London EC2A 3EA. Map

Seating is strictly limited. Please RSVP to or call 0791 351 3567 before June 15 to secure tickets.

by Ice & fire - Sonja Linden's company - I saw an excellent play of hers about a Rwandan asylum seeker, she has also worked with the medical foundation.
