Dignity for Asylum Seekers March to Cardiff 29th May – 2nd June
Dignity for Asylum Seekers are a group of asylum seekers, refugees and allies. Over the past 2 years we have organised big marches in Bristol to raise awareness of destitution and detention.

This year we are planning a solidarity walk at the same time as a bigger walk from Strasbourg to Brussels, to protest against the tightening of Borders across Europe, to resist the system of forced destitution and to raise awareness about issues facing asylum seekers in the UK and Bristol.
