Solidarity on World Refugee Day 2017, Glasgow

Independence Live

Every year on June 20, people around the world get together to mark World Refugee Day. It is a powerful way to come together with others to show that we care about refugees and that we want people seeking refugee protection to be treated fairly and with dignity.

This year we will take a moment to stand with and stand for refugees in Glasgow city centre.

We will form a human chain within George Square, showing our solidarity with refugees around the world and our connection to refugees in Scotland.
SambaYaBamba Youth Street Band will provide uplifting entertainment before and after the human chain “moment”!

Join us!
We need people to link arms with us and form a human chain in George Square at 11am on 20 June 2017.

Bring ‘refugees welcome’ banners and posters if you can.

If you are not able to join us on the day, please prepare large-sized paper figures that we will include in our human chain.
