When we think and talk about politics, it’s usually not long before immigration comes up. But why is immigration such a big issue for everyday Teesside people? With poverty rising, public services being taken away and social housing harder to come by, is it immigration that is really hurting local people, could it be something else, what are local opinions about immigration and what do the people of Teesside have to say.
Come and be part of the debate where we hear from you and a panel of experts about this issue.
We will be joined by Professor Thom Brookes, a leading national voice on immrgation, Fazia Hussain-Brown from Unite the Union, Lawrie Coombes - Teesside Solidarity Movement, Zaheer Iqbal - One Ummah charity and other Teesside voices
It’s time to have your say in a safe space, the local cafe and join us for our third RePublik event.
