Making Scotland a welcoming society

HOW will the increasing rate of migration to Scotland play out in the developing Scottish Independence Referendum discussion?

Can Scotland become a welcoming society, whichever way the vote goes? And what of the living conditions, economic and social / cultural contributions and aspirations of those coming to the country, both on a temporary basis and more long-term?

These and other issues will be discussed in this important conversation today (Saturday 17th August, 2-3.30pm, £5) at St John's Church Hall, as part of Just Festival 2013.

The speakers will be Hanzala Malik MSP, Pat Elsmie (Migrants' Rights Scotland), Fiaz Khan (Council of Ethnic Minority Voluntary Sector Organisations Scotland), and Jon Busby & Joyce Juma Phiri (the Welcoming Association). The chair will be Denboba K. Natie (LINKNet).

Full booking details here, or buy a ticket at the cash box office at the venue.
