Stand With Migrant Workers on 20 February 2017 - #1DayWithoutUs
On Monday 20 February, groups across the UK are coming together to take part in One Day Without Us: a day of action to
- Stand up for the rights of migrants
- Celebrate the crucial contribution of migrants to our communities
- Take a stand against the politics of hate and division
War on Want has always stood in solidarity with workers, around the world. Today, many migrant workers across the UK face racism, abuse and exploitation fuelled by years of damaging immigration policies.
The aftermath of the EU referendum, and Trump’s politics of hate, are causing fear and anxiety, especially for migrant communities so we are coming together to stand for justice.
