SOAS Detainee Support (SDS) is a student-led initiative working in solidarity with migrants in and outside detention centres. Through sustained visits, we aim to reduce isolation and offer practical support to quicken release and stop deportations. We are committed to the abolition of detention.

Food Not Bombs is dedicated to taking action around the issues of capitalism, food waste, poverty, hunger and militarism that affect out society. How can anyone justify spending another penny on weapons of war when there are people going hungry on our streets? How can we continue to treat food as a privilege while we waste tonnes and let over a billion starve around the world?

Food Not Bombs take positive direct action by gathering food that would otherwise be wasted, cooking it and serving it for free in public to anyone and everyone who is hungry. We hope to create vibrant and friendly communities that can work towards real social change together.
