Breaking the Fences
Short films on freedom of movement, migration controls, and resistance.
A fundraiser to support action against deportation.
Sunday 1st April, 7pm-10pm
OARC, upstairs at E.Oxf. Community Centre, Cowley Rd
\xA33 suggested donation - give what you can afford
Doors open at 7pm and we'll start by showing an array of 3-minute interviews with people involved in the "Arab Spring" uprisings and movements - a preview of a future screening on the subject.

Our main feature (7:30pm-9:30pm, incl. interval) is an inspiring and action-packed selection of short films focusing on the border regimes of Fortress Europe and the movements challenging them.

We'll end with an opportunity for open discussion, and wrap up around 10pm.
Proceeds from the night will be split between:
Oxford Action Resource Centre:
...providing space and resources for grassroots local activism
and Stop Deportation Network:
...taking direct action to stop deportations.
If you can't come to the screening but would like to make a donation to support action against deportation, find out more, or get involved, email
