Rethink Rebuild Society participated in the "Power Up: Pushing back against the ‘Hostile Environment" event in Manchester on the 19th of March. The event held lectures and workshops on resisting detention, deportation and immigration enforcement, securing employment support, and resisting the hostile environment in healthcare.
As part of its ongoing Conflict Café series, the Imperial War Museum (IWM) on the 17th February gathered members of the Syrian community as well as filmmakers and journalists, all of whom have experienced the conflict on the ground, to hear their personal stories and to ask questions in an informal setting.
Rethink Rebuild Society and Amnesty International Manchester Group organised on Saturday 17 February 2018 a free screening of the Oscar winning documentary "The White Helmets".
The screening was followed by a Q&A with the director Orlando von Einsiedel and Khaled Khatib, the Cinematographer who filmed most of the scenes, both on Skype.
