Theme 2 hosted the second "Sights and Sounds of Migration" at Strathclyde in early December and it was well attended. The event highlighted the shocking plight of people trafficking in Europe with the movie, Far North.  This was followed by poetry, readings form Irish migrant workers travelling Britain in the 1950s and music from ChangingEmployment's very own 'occasional' band, Rhythms of Resistance (ROR). Including from the host country Scotland, ROR is made up of musicians from a range of diasporas: from Ireland, Hungary, Nigeria and Australia.
