An incredible day of action
Yesterday was the most incredible day of action with volunteers, activists and trade unionists across the country coming together to show their opposition to the Government’s brutal Rwanda plan.
Protests took place at Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival, Nottingham, Coventry , Dudley, Cambridge, Norwich, Manchester, Portsmouth, Sheffield, Leeds, York, Shrewesbury, Harlow, Tower Hamlets, Lewisham, Stoke and elsewhere, called as part of the #StopRwanda campaign, launched by the Trades Union Congress, Care4Calais and Stand Up To Racism, and backed by eleven trade unions including the PCS.
This was an incredible display of what we can achieve when we come together. It was fantastic to see the photos and videos pouring in from round the country of so many people taking action to show how strong their feelings are about this cruel plan.
We have six weeks to show the Government there are more effective and compassion alternatives to the Rwanda plan. Here’s what you can do to help:
- Buy a #StopRwanda t shirt, take a photo, post it on socials, wear it out and about, talk about it and tag us @care4calais => https://bit.ly/RWDtee
- Download or make a #StopRwanda card and take picture of yourself and/or your friends holding it. Post the pic on your social channels and tag us @care4calais => bit.ly/RWDbanner
