Why you should support Support One Day Without Us
One Day Without Us is a National Day of Action to celebrate the contribution made by migrants to the UK on February 20th, to coincide with UN World Day of Social Justice.
In the last two decades, immigration has become a festering toxic obsession in British politics. Year after year, men and women whose only 'crime' is to live, work and study in the UK have been vilified and stigmatised as parasites, intruders, invaders and outsiders.
Since the June referendum, migrants have come under enormous pressure. Xenophobic and racist attitudes previously lurking on the political fringes have erupted into the mainstream. Anti-immigrant hostility pours from our newspapers and from the mouths of politicians. Even children in our schools are being bullied and told to go home.
We reject the politics of hatred and division. For 24 hours, we are inviting migrants from inside and outside the European Union, and British citizens who support them, to take time out from your normal activities in order to highlight and celebrate the contribution that migrants make to British society.
We are a grassroots campaign with no affiliations to any political party. In just a few months we have established a network of groups across the country organizing in their communities for February 20th.
Our campaign is run entirely by volunteers. We have no funding from any organization. We urgently need money to pay for the badges, stickers, posters and leaflets that will play a crucial part in our campaign and on February 20 itself.
Please donate what you can. Help us make February 20 a day of unity, solidarity and celebration.
