Amnesty create a family-free zone for refugee campaign
By James Herring on Thursday, March 7, 2019
UK government rules are separating refugee families. Amnesty are campaigning to change that.
Last weekend the charity set-up a family-free zone in London’s Southbank and sent security guards to the area to enforce it.
The guards told families that they couldn’t enjoy the view, take pictures, sit, chat or eat in the zone together.
The experience highlighted the seemingly arbitrary nature of the existing law, galvanising the public to sign a petition to call on the Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, to amend the law.
