We will be lining up coats to to show the freezing conditions refugees are facing as part of the #Coats4Calais appeal.
They are also joining the growing outcry against the governments failure to offer the care and support needed towards unaccompanied child refugees.
“I’m joining the winter appeal delegation to Calais because as trade unionists it is essential that we show solidarity with those fleeing conflict, war or persecution.
“I cannot Imagine what it must be like to be on the streets in the freezing temperatures that we have recently experienced. We should be showing humanity and offering shelter and support to these people. Please do all you can to support the winter appeal.”
“As temperatures approach freezing in Europe, thousands of refugees, many of them children, are in shocking conditions because of the unwillingess of our own government to help.
“As well as offering political solidarity by pressuring the government to help, this delegation is an attempt to offer practical solidarity and warm clothing to some of the most vulnerable people in Europe. Please support the appeal in any way you can, or by donating at the link provided.”
