A very good meeting at the  London Churches and Refugee Network this evening. Sessions by Detention Forum and Migrant Voice about detention (along with ex-detainees), and Migrants' Rights Network about family migration.  I started going last summer (after I was invited to speak) and their session are always excellent - worth attending if you can make it.
