In February 2018, I made the most remarkable trip with activists from Haringey Stand Up to Racism to Calais to express solidarity with refugees stranded there. We took donated winter clothing and over £2000 in donations which we handed over to Care4Calais.
Calais4Calais is doing a remarkable job supporting refugees. For me, the most important thing they do is letting refugees know that we have not forgotten them and that we stand by them. At the same time, we continue to fight to change government policy so that refugees are allowed to come into the UK.
Below is a video of the Refugee Solidarity Trip to Calais.
