On Wednesday 9th November Hostile screened at the Rethink Rebuild Society in Manchester, at an event organised in collaboration with the Migrant Destitution Fund.
The screening was part of our Impact Campaign tour which started in September and goes on until July next year, with seven screenings so far. It included a Q&A hosted by Rethink Rebuild Society volunteer Dr Mustafa Alachkar and Hostile director Sonita Gale.
The Rethink Rebuild Society is a Manchester-based charity that began informally after the start of the uprising in Syria in March 2011. It works towards improving the lives of refugees, asylum seekers, and immigrants, in particular but not exclusively Syrians in the UK, helping them become positively established within British society.
Meanwhile the Migrant Destitution Fund supports destitute migrants with No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF). This is a Hostile Environment policy, which leaves people unable to access mainstream benefits and housing assistance.
You can read more about the event on our Impact Screenings page.
