speaking on the event, a spokesperson stated: “MASI is a grassroots organisation based in Ireland. We are 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. Our focus is on the Right to Education and the Right to Work for all people seeking asylum, on the complete abolition of direct provision and an end to deportations.
“Please join us for a fundraising night in Limerick to celebrate a diversity of international music, dance and poetry from performers from all around the globe to help raise awareness of the difficulties facing refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Ireland”.
