Seeking Sanctuary Walthamstow Meeting with Yvette Cooper MP 3 February 8pm

Seeking Sanctuary, Seeking Security: How Can Walthamstow Help Refugees? Public Meeting with Yvette Cooper MP, and Stella Creasy MP

Wednesday 3 February 2016 8pm

Yvette Cooper MP, Labour’s refugee crisis envoy, is coming to Walthamstow to discuss what we can do to support refugees who are seeking assistance from Britain.

Walthamstow has long prided itself on supporting those who seek sanctuary from persecution and values the diversity of our community which has links around the world. We know that with the refugee crisis and immigration policies in our national headlines, it is vital to speak up for these principles and ensure they are put into practice.

At this meeting we will hear first hand from Yvette about her work, as well as from several local residents who have recently travelled to refugee camps in Lesbos and Leros, those who have sought asylum here themselves and those who are campaigning on rights for refugees and providing support services here in Walthamstow.

We will discuss what we can do as a community in Walthamstow to support refugees, and how we can hold the UK Government to account for their current treatment of those fleeing persecution. This includes our call to let 3,000 refugee children into Britain, the future of Yarlswood detention centre for women refugees and the root causes of the threats refugees face around the world.

This event is free and open to all residents of Walthamstow to attend, but to help us manage the organisation of this event please RSVP to:
