Bushra speaks on BBC Radio Leicester

Until the 13th of March you can listen to the recording of Bushra Ali speaking at the University of Leicester Refugee Week panel discussion: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p014mnxg (Bushra speaks from 1:09).You can read more about the event here: http://www.thaliwalbridge.co.uk/news/university-of-leicester-refugee-week-panel-discussion.

At the heart of the discussion was the intention to highlight the difficulties faced by refugees seeking asylum status on the grounds of their gender or sexuality. The discussion was part of a series of events held by the university to raise awareness of the refugee situation. You can see photos from the event on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/University-of-Leicester-Refugee-Week-25th-February-3rd-March-2013/292853057449133.

The radio broadcast gave much needed publicity to the refugee cause and allowed Bushra and the other panel experts to speak up for those without the strongest voice.
