SUPPORTING REFUGEES - MARCH 2018

By clarionadmin, Apr 4 2018 07:43PM

On a cold night in March we assembled at the Lenton Methodist Church for an evening to publicise and organise support for refugees. Caroline Kerr, a local woman who set up the charity Bras not Bombs shared the story of the many ways that she and her charity have organised practical support for refugees. We heard about the campaign to support detainees and shut down the Morton Hall Detention Centre - and a call to join their regular protests at Morton Hall. And a speaker from the Campaign Against the Arms Trade talked about the local campaign against the arms manufacturer Heckler and Koch and their factory on the Lenton Lane industrial estate, and the links between the arms trade and the wars that force people to flee to seek safety elsewhere.


And, of course, we sang!
