Compañera Pocha García, QEPD

“CON MUCHA TRISTEZA ME ACABO DE ENTERAR DEL SENSIBLE FALLECIMIENTO DE LA COMPAÑERA POCHA.
Mi más sentido pésame a su familia. A Guaviyu su esposo, sus hijas, hijos y nietos.
También a toda la comunidad URUGUAYA en el Reino Unido
Compañeros solidarios,consecuentes y de una gran trayectoria de lucha.
La última vez que vi a Pocha, fue en el bus; me bajé en East Street,  me despedí de ella con un abrazo y un beso
Ya abajo del bus se me cayeron las lágrimas de pena de haberla visto ya tan enferma y acabada

Hoy ha sido un día triste y de malas noticias…”

Pelusa.

.

En nombre de toda la comunidad de chilenos en el norte de Gran Bretaña queremos hacer llegar nuestro más sentido pésame a su sompañero Guaviyu, a sus hijos, familia en Uruguay,  y amigos.

Compañera Pocha, Descansa en Paz.

Public meeting in Sheffield: “We Touched the Sky”.

 
Joint SYMAAG/Sheffield Chilean Community event to learn about the experience of Chilean refugees who came to Sheffield.
 
Thursday, January 26, 7-8.30pm (doors open at 6.30 for pre-meeting refreshments), Quaker Meeting House, 10 St James’ St, Sheffield S1 2EW
 
It’s easy to forget that refugees have been welcomed, and their experience of fighting injustice has been valued here. But that was part of the experience of Chilean refugees who came to South Yorkshire in the 1970’s fleeing the results of the military coup there.
 
 While the UK Government did nothing to defend the elected Chilean Government against dictatorship, local trade unions welcomed and supported activists who shared their organising skills and courage with us.
 
Chile40YearsOn & the Chilean Community have created We Touched the Sky an online course explaining what happened in Chile, why people were forced to become refugees and what it was like to arrive and live in South Yorkshire. To publicise this fascinating resource and to celebrate the solidarity shown by local people, South Yorkshire Migration and Asylum Action Group (SYMAAG) has organised a joint meeting with the Sheffield Chilean community on Thursday 26th January
 
Our main speaker is Dr Jasmine Gideon, senior lecturer in development studies in the Geography Department at Birkbeck, University of London.She has recently published research on the health and well-being of Chilean refugee women in the UK. She will be joined by speakers from the Chilean community in Sheffield and a representative from the Sheffield labour movement who supported Chilean refugees in the 1970s.
 
The meeting is free though we’d welcome a donation to cover room-hire costs
 
As always, don’t let lack of money be a barrier to attending any SYMAAG events. Bring your ticket/receipt to the meeting and we can reimburse you in cash at the meeting for any reasonable travel expenses. Or get in touch with us before the meeting if you need to.
