 Migrant Voice - Take #ActionOnVisas: Join our National Day of Action

Migrant Voice is leading a national day of action on Tuesday 31 October to call for a reduction in extortionate visa costs, and raise public awareness about the impact they have on people's lives.

The idea came from our national meeting in August on the government’s proposed visa fee increases, where we came together in solidarity, anger and determination to take action.

Groups, organisations and individuals, including in Leeds, Manchester, London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Sheffield and Nottingham are organising a range of actions and activities on the day.



Game of Life, 12-2pm, taking place in the courtyard in front of the British Library, 96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB. Join our life-sized board game making your way through the intricacies of the British visa and settlement system. Roll the dice and hope for the best!

Day of Action rally, 6-8pm, in front of the Home Office, 2 Marsham Street London SW1P 4DF Join us and a number of speakers to show solidarity and stand up against this unjust system. Halloween masks and costumes are welcome.
