Remember Refugees on Armistice Day

Whitehall, London. Sat 11 Nov 2017



 THe start of the protest had been moved to the Ministry of Defence, responsible for our wars

 and it took some time for everyone to find the new location (and I think some failed to find it)

 People are told to go up onto the steps

 

 and wreaths of orange poppies are given out

 including two large life-ring wreaths
     
 

 

 
     
 

 

 

 A volunteer on the Greek Islands had brought back a child's toy lifejacket, used crossing from Turkey to Greece in a rubber boat

 Peace Pledge Union banner - with a white poppy - which they have been making since 1934 (the year after they
 were first sold by the Co-operative Women's Guild.

 A refugee holds up the self-help guide for Asylum Seekers and supporters she helped make from Legal Action For Women

 

 

A speaker talks about the continuing need to help children and other refugees at Calais
