Meet the DREAMers in London - Monday the 11th at 7PM

Last November Barack Obama was re-elected President of the United States largely because of the enthusiasm and strong turnout from Latino voters. This was the result of organising from within the Latino community and in particular a campaign by young undocumented students which forced Obama to defer deportations and create a pathway to citizenship.
I am delighted to announce that one of the young Latino organisers who spearheaded this campaign will be speaking at a HOPE not hate public meeting in London on Monday 11 February.
Carlos Saavedra is the national coordinator of United We Dream, the largest Latino youth organisation representating undocumented young people in the United States. Also known as the DREAMers, this group is one of the most exciting, innovative and successful immigrant rights groups in the US.
