SOMETHING A BIT DIFFERENT AT THE NEXT SOUTHEND GROUP MEETING ON 9th JUNE
Our next Group meeting is this Thursday 9th June at 7:30pm at the Balmoral Centre, Salisbury Avenue, Westcliff-on-Sea SS0 7AU. We hope you can join us this month in particular as we are welcoming a number of Bahraini's who have fled the Khalifa dictatorship in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The Kingdom - famous for it's year round climate, oil wealth and annual Formula One race - has another side; a regime run in the interests of a tiny minority,an abusive internal security apparatus and an increasingly disturbing record of human rights violations.
Our guests will talk, both about life for ordinary Bahraini's in the country of their birth as well as what has happened to them since seeking asylum in the UK".
