Crispin from Stay Home for Labour writes: An edited version of Wednesday’s Refugee Week special – the full show is also available on YouTube.
|Our Refugee Week show on Wednesday evening was emotional and inspiring and showed just how noble and brave refugees are and how much we urgently need to support them.|
Refugee Tales featured at the beginning of the show and you find out more about their mission to tell the story of refugees here.
The Status Now 4 All campaign which also featured on the show aims to make sure everyone’s basic needs are met during the current Covid-19 pandemic and affirms that the only way to ensure this happens is by giving Leave to Remain to all refugees and migrants both inside and outside of the asylum and immigration system. You can find out about their campaign and petition here.
If you able to support future Stay Home for Labour discussions with a donation, it would be very welcome. The shows aim to raise awareness of issues, give a voice to the grassroots and raise morale during this bleak period.
All the best
