MASI, the Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland, has teamed up with IMMA to launch the second issue of the MASI Journal, From Fear to Liberty. Featuring personal essays, poetry, artwork, and analysis by people who are or have been in Direct Provision and the asylum system in Ireland, this journal is a vital documentation of the realities of Direct Provision, asylum and deportation system by the people who have had to live it.
Join us to celebrate the creativity and achievement of the MASI journal contributors and the continued existence, strength and solidarity of the asylum-seeker led movement for justice, dignity, and freedom for all and the end of Direct Provision and the deportation regime.
As well as readings by our journal contributors, there will be guest speakers, live performances, dance, music, food and art as well as various activities for children. Come and enjoy an afternoon of music, dance, food and fun in the beautiful grounds of IMMA. Bring a picnic, your friends and family – everyone is welcome!
MASI, The Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland, is a grassroots organisation based in Ireland. MASI is made up of people who are or have been in the asylum and Direct Provision system in Ireland, working and advocating together for justice, freedom and dignity for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants. MASI came together after protests in the Direct Provision centres in 2014. Their focus is on the complete abolition of Direct Provision, an end to deportations, on the Right to Education and the Right to Work for all people seeking asylum.
