Refugees welcome here – Leeds public meeting and rally

We are witnessing the biggest movement of people since World War Two. Already over 2,500 people have drowned in the Mediterranean Sea as they try to reach safety. This is the reality of Fortress Europe.

But rather than provide a safe haven for the thousands fleeing war, poverty and persecution, David Cameron has offered little.

After the great national day of action on 12 September – which saw 500 people march through Leeds to say ‘Refugees and migrants welcome here’ – we need to keep up the political pressure and continue to build solidarity with refugees and migrants – especially urgent as winter is coming.
