Radical Womxn’s Dance Party are a collective of artists, academics and activists based in Liverpool, organising events that articulate and protest womyn’s struggles within wider anti- capitalist resistance movements. This series of talks and workshops concerns the conditions faced by those detained in ‘Immigration Removal Centres’ or other facilities. The programme will inform, hear from those who have experienced or are currently facing detention, and teach how we can organise in Merseyside. The activities will culminate in a party taking place Saturday 1 December, celebrating resistance and activism across the UK.
