I’m appearing tomorrow evening as a guest speaker at the Nottingham Contemporary at an event to launch a new Amnesty group.  I’ll be speaking on the subject of ‘Impunity on the Border’ based on the journeys I’ve made to European borders over the last two years.

It’s a public event so do come along!  Here’s the official publicity with contact details:
