Convoy to Calais – 18 June

Now is the time for solidarity with refugees: Why you should be on the Convoy to Calais

Hundreds of refugees have drowned in the Mediterranean, the British government are refusing to even take parentless children from Calais, and Syrian refugees are being forced back into the jaws of the war they have fled.

The Convoy to Calais on 18 June will be a huge demonstration of solidarity with refugees from the people of this country. The major unions are in. The biggest social movements are in. The Muslim community is in. Are you?

Here’s what you can do:

  • Come on the Convoy. We need every last lorry, van, bus, car, motorbike or scooter that can come to be with us. Let us know you’re coming by registering, and do make a donation to help with the costs. Even if you have to peel off at Dover and can’t make it all the way.
  • Collect: we need material, and money. Collect in your workplace, union, community, place of worship or just among your friends. Every bit counts.    Download the full approved donation list HERE.
  • Even if you haven’t collected anything do come on the Convoy. We need hands to unload and a massive show of solidarity.
  • Help spread the word on Facebook and Twitter – #J18C2C

You can now register for the convoy here where you can also find all the other information you need.
The Peoples Assembly are also taking registrations here.

Hope to see you there!
