Yesterday celebrities, people with lived experience of seeking sanctuary and Together With Refugees coalition members all boarded a boat and took a message to a place where MPs couldn’t ignore them: right outside Parliament.
Adorned with a huge banner reading: vote to protect not punish refugees, this stunt was all about swaying MPs who were again voting on the Nationality and Borders bill that same afternoon.
See the incredible video of the event here.
We were very honored to be part of team onboard the boat spreading the message.
This cruel bill is still not yet law. It’s not too late to speak up against it and call on your MP to do the right thing. See here for template letters and tweets.
