Ken Loach says #StopRwanda
What a fantastic inspiration this is! We’re bowled over this morning to see Ken Loach, one of the UK’s greatest-ever film directors and a famous champion of ordinary people, joining our our #StopRwanda campaign. When such a respected veteran campaigner for social justice lends his support, you know this fight really matters.
Since the 1960s Ken has directed many modern classics for cinema and TV, including Cathy Come Home, Kes, The Wind That Shakes The Barley and I, Daniel Blake. Along the way he’s worked with actors including Cillian Murphy, Robert Carlyle and even Eric Cantona. He’s also one of only nine directors to win the Palme d’Or twice.
Ken has always called out politicians whose callousness causes suffering to real people, and this Government’s Rwanda policy is as vicious and brutalising as any he has exposed in his long career. People from all sorts of backgrounds are now publicly protesting it everywhere; together we can stop this, but we need you to add your voice to the outcry.
Here’s what you can do:
- 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
- Come to the demo on 5 September in London or meet us at the Notting Hill Carnival to show your support
