Public Forum Tonight (May 3, 2011): The Migrants Forum Committee

May 3, 2011

Dear CURB members and supporters,

Please see information below about a public forum tonight sponsored by the Migrants Forum Committee (which includes Amnesty International Bermuda).

Citizens Uprooting Racism in Bermuda


Happy May One and All,

I hope this weekly update finds you doing well. First on our plate is an event tonight at the Bermuda Industrial Union headquarters on Union Street in Hamilton.

The Migrants Forum Committee (which includes Amnesty International Bermuda) will be hosting a public forum to help raise awareness and answer questions about the Employment Act 2000.

The Royal Gazette featured the information in an article in yesterday’s paper. You can access that¬†here.

From 5.30 p.m. to 7 p.m. I will be joined by a representative of the BIU, the Labour Department, the Catholic Bishop Robert Kurtz, Laurie Shiell from the Centre Against Abuse and Lawyer Juliana Snelling. The Moderator will be Larry Scott.

The Forum will be a chance for us to work on one of our main campaign areas – Migrant Workers – and ensure Bermuda’s workers are fairly treated. I hope you can attend.


Robyn Skinner
