Local campaign groups join forces to hold election candidates’ debate on refugees, human rights and racism The candidates of the main parties fighting for the Cambridge seat in the General Election will be taking part in a hustings debate at Emmanuel Reformed United Church on May 17. The event is being organised by local activists who are part of a network of groups campaigning for the rights of refugees, human rights and minorities. The public will have the opportunity to ask local candidates questions on immigration, refugees, equality and international responsibility. These issues are high on the agenda of many residents in a city with one of the highest Remain votes in the UK and a busy calendar of refugee fundraising events, anti-racism demonstrations and organised convoys to refugee camps in Northern France. The event, which starts at 7.45pm, will begin with a speed dating format during which the audience will be able to submit questions, followed by a panel debate.
