AAfG will be supporting this event on Thursday, 6pm @ Downing Street.
Refugees are currently living in atrocious conditions in Calais, at the borders of Hungary and other parts of the Europe. Cold, wet autumnal conditions mean new born babies are suffering with hypothermia and aid agencies struggling to cope, do not have enough blankets to give them.
With Winter fast approaching the situation is becoming critical. We must not let them freeze. The government can and must do more to help refugees.
Activists, trade unionists, politicians, refugee and human rights charities agreed to hold a protest vigil outside Downing Street to light candles to recognise the refugees stranded in Calais and other parts of Europe and demand our government takes more refugees.
Join us at 6pm on 12 November at Downing St. Let’s send a strong message #DontLetThemFreeze #WeCanDoMore #RefugeesWelcome
Please bring a candle or a light with you.
