Hello all, old and new members
First and foremost I would like to welcome you back to oxford or if you are new here welcome you we will have a introductory meeting on Sunday and in the meantime there are some events that may be of interest:
Our volunteering wing of STAR is running a big summer party for all the young people from the Bridging project (a project in Oxford that works with young asylum seekers and refugees) and we really need some volunteers to help out with it. It is this Friday afternoon between 1-4pm at Pembroke Sports grounds on the Abingdon Road.
We are running several sports including football, basketball, cricket and Frisbee as well as a enormous picnic. We need people to help out/play the sports or just help with the food and hang out and chat in the sun. It is looking like it will be a great afternoon and should be a great way for Oxford students to hang out in a relaxed atmosphere with some of the young refugees from Oxford.
Send me an email asap if you are interested in helping out email@example.com
Hope 8th week and exams, if you have them, is going well. Just a reminder about some of the events of Refugee Action Week and also details of the film night on Thursday.

'Arbitrary Detention in the United Kingdom' - Hicham Yezza
Hicham Yezza was an employee of the University of Nottingham when he was arrested and detained on terrorism related charges in November 2008. When the case against him turned out to be lacking any substance, the Government continued to pursue him on immigration issues and attempted, and eventually failed, to deport him from the UK. He will discuss his experience of detention by the British state.
