Sat 17 Feb – One Day Without Us

Barnet and Haringey More in Common are celebrating the contribution of migrants with a stall on East Finchley High Road and on social media. More info about 1DWU at http://www.1daywithoutus.org/

The purpose is proclaim the message ‘ Proud to be a migrant/Proud to stand with migrants.’  Alternatively, you might choose to bring  messages to the day, depending on your organisational or individual priorities. Celebrating migrants and migration does not preclude protest and there are lots of things to protest against:  The impact of immigration controls on migrant workers; the ‘hostile environment’; the failure to guarantee EU citizens’ rights; restrictions on health care to migrants.  What do you want the country to know about the value that migrants bring to your communities?  What migrant voices and perspectives are being left out of the public debate?   What would you like to highlight and draw attention to?  Why are you proud to be a migrant?  Why are you proud to stand with migrants?
