Vigil to support refugees at Bonn Square, 1pm 5th March

The last week has seen an escalation in the violence directed at refugees. Riot police were sent in to Calais to help with the destruction of shelters, leaving thousands with nowhere to go. These include hundreds of vulnerable, unaccompanied children, many of whom have relatives in Britain. These children are now prey to traffickers and paedophiles.

The theme 2013 is “Learning the lessons of history”, very appropriate in the year of the anniversaries of both the Ascott Martyrs and the strike at the Bliss Tweed Mill.
