Harry Harpham RIP

_VIGIL 1120130014We at Chile Scda are all shocked and saddened to hear about Harry’s passing.
Harry will be always remembered by our community for his solidarity in denouncing the human rights atrocities of Pinochet’s dictatorship in our country.
Harry was elected as the MP for Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough in May last year.
A former miner – maybe the final deep coal miner ever to enter parliament – Harry was fiercely proud of his union roots and stood firm on the picket line for a full year during the miners’ strike at the Nottinghamshire pit where he worked. He put his background in energy to good use when he was promoted to the role of Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary.

Living with lifelong exile: Reflections on the Chilean case workshop. London

This workshop will explore the long term impacts of exile, particularly in relation to health and wellbeing, drawing lessons from Chilean experiences of exile to the UK. Literature around refugee coping strategies has tended to focus on the immediate aftermath and few years after arrival. There is however a lack of knowledge and discussion in the literature about the long term health and well being of refugees who stay in the host country after return is technically possible. The Chilean case offers opportunity to understand how far forced migrants are able to adapt to life in the host country and how people cope in the long term with the impact of trauma and torture.

The workshop will take place on Saturday 23rd January 2016, from 10.00 to 18.00 at Birkbeck, University of London
