Mark Thomas Benefit Gig

Comedian Mark Thomas to donate proceeds of one night of his 'Trespass' tour to the Western Sahara Campaign UK.
Printer version    
The proceeds of Mark's Benefit Gig will support the WSCUK's court case against HMRC and DEFRA. Trespass carries on from where Mark’s previous show '100 Acts of Minor Dissent' left off. It is his usual odd mix of theatre, stand up, activism, a dash of journalism and a dollop of mayhem.

Event details:

Monday 2nd May
7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The Tricycle
269 Kilburn High Road, London NW6 7JR

Western Sahara – Africa’s Last Colony
On October 31st 1975 Morocco invaded Western Sahara.
Half the Saharawi fled from napalm bombing and set up camps in Algeria.
40 years later and they are still waiting for their promised referendum on self-determination.
150,000 are still living in desert refugee camps and those who remained in Western Sahara live under occupation and suffer daily human rights abuses.

While the UN Security Council fails to organise the referendum countries and companies trade with Morocco for the resources of Western Sahara breaking international law and tacitly supporting the occupation.
To break the inertia the Western Sahara Campaign UK has brought a legal claim against DEFRA and HMRC regarding trade agreements with Morocco. The High Court has referred the case to the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU).

To support the case Mark Thomas is performing Trespass.

The Western Sahara Campaign works in solidarity with the Saharawi people to generate political support in order to advance their right to self-determination and to promote their human rights. Our role is to lobby the UK Government and the EU. You can help us to ensure the UK does not ignore the voice of the Saharawi people.
