I Love Migrants launch and T-shirt competition

As part of my election campaign I pledged to get on board with the Students Not Supsects campaign. As part of this promise I would like to invite you to the launch of the I Love Migrants campaign from the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants. The  campaign has already featured prominently in The Guardian. and has been very popular at NUS conferenece, SOAS and after the Big Gay Flashmob outside the Tory party headquarters that we attended.

The event is being held at The Foundry, 80 Great Eastern Street,
Shoreditch, London EC2A 3JL, on Thursday, 29 April from 7pm.

We would also be very grateful if you could join the Facebook group,
say your attending our event, follow and retweet us on Twitter, email
your networks and blog about our campaign and launch event.

The launch takes place while the main political parties are competing
for our attention and our votes. Please come along to show your
support for positive, fact-based debate about immigration and find out
more about the campaign.

The evening will include speeches from Neil Gerrard MP, economist and
author Philippe Legrain, the JCWI policy director Hina Majid and ULU
president elect Clare Solomon. We aim to provide information that will
allow people to engage in a positive representation of immigration.
Also, photographer Jesse Hurd of Report Digital will present a
collection of images about migration.

The popular I Love Migrants t-shirts, Jute bags and mugs will all be
available for sale at the launch.

There will also be superb Bangladeshi food and drinks for early
arrivals and live music.

Please RSVP by Thursday April 22 to Brendan.montague@jcwi.org.uk to
add your name to the guest list.
