Refugees Welcome Here – National Day Of Action London
Saturday, September 12, 2015
Downing Street, London SW1A 2
National day of action, Called by Stand up to Racism, BARAC, Stop the War Coalition, Migrant Rights Network
This event has been called in response to various reports of refugees fleeing war, persecution, torture and poverty losing their lives or struggling to find a safe haven. This includes the death of 200 refugees off the coast of Libya, around 70 refugees in a truck in Austria and on going reports of refugees drowning crossing the Mediterranean, stranded in Hungary and prohibited from moving around the EU, and those in Calais struggling to find sanctuary.
The government response to this has been disgraceful. Unlike Germany, Italy and Greece, Britain has not offered a safe haven for these people.
On Monday 14 September Home Secretary Theresa May will be meeting with EU leaders about the refugee crisis. We must learn the lessons of history and call on the government to take a humanitarian and compassionate response to refugees.
We are calling on the British government to meet its share of the responsibility for providing protection. Let’s send a strong message: we say refugees are welcome here.
We are also calling for a national day of action on Saturday 12 September, organise local events at places of worship or unveil a “Refugees Welcome Here” banner at football matches, use your imagination!
Join us on Saturday 12 September 2015.
