Music and poetry event for Babi Badalov

An awareness raising event took place on 19th June for gay asylum seeker Babi Badalov. The evening of poetry and acoustic music was organised by the 'Keep Babi Safe in Cardiff' campaign, in collaboration with Welsh poet and playwright Patrick Jones.

The free event was held at Cardiff's Butetown History and Art Centre and was attended by around 60 people. There were contributions from Bethan Jenkins AM, poets Mike Jenkins and Mike Church, music from New State Radio and Lethargy and physical theatre by Gaijin- San.

The campaign has gained the support of Leanne Wood AM, Chris Bryant MP, Jenny Willot MP, Deputy Leader of Cardiff Council Neil McEvoy and Cardiff Council Leader Rodney Berman.

The campaign to keep Babi safe in Cardiff will continue to build upon the support shown at this event.
