14h-15:15 – Covid-19: How should the internationalist left respond?
The coronavirus pandemic is a human tragedy and a public health crisis, but it is also a crisis of capitalism and our entire political system. We will be bringing together experts and campaigners to discuss cross-border responses to the virus, and how we can fight back against anti-migrant politics.

15:30-16:30 – Right to Stay: Defending EU nationals
European nationals were promised that their full rights would be protected after Brexit but the reality is different. The Settled Status scheme is a mess, and the coronavirus crisis means that many migrants who need help with their applications can’t access support. How do we prevent hundreds of thousands becoming criminalised? Join this session to learn about our new campaign for the Right to Stay.

17h – 18h – Trade deals: Why do they matter and what can we do?

For the leaders of the Leave campaign, having ‘full control’ over trade policy was always an essential aspect of Brexit. The reason is clear: trade deals can help radically restructure economies, handing vast new powers to international corporations and eroding our rights and protections. Find out why trade deals are important, what’s likely to be in a US trade deal – and what we can do to protect our rights and our NHS.
