This Saturday (17 February) will see the ‘1 Day Without Us’ campaign holding its second national day of action in solidarity with migrants in the UK.

Portuguese join in national UK day to celebrate migrants

Communities across Britain will be putting on events proclaiming the campaign slogan ‘Proud to be a migrant/Proud to stand with migrants.’
A group of Portuguese residents from ‘Little Portugal’ in London have confirmed they will be participating, after a call to action by Lambeth Deputy Mayor, Guilherme Rosa.
Lambeth saw 79 percent of its residents vote to stay in the European Union during the Brexit referendum.
Meanwhile, and as part of the preparation for the campaign in London, the 1 Day Without Us London group has commissioned a series of projections onto Tower Bridge, The Tate Modern and Waterloo Bridge from the guerrilla projectionist, FeralX, with pictures by photographer, Steve Eason.
National organiser Laura Stringhett explains: “I, like many others, moved to London because it was a multicultural, vibrant and welcoming city. These projections should remind us that centuries of migration have made London what it is now: a very unique and special place. To continue to be one of the most dynamic cities in the world, London has to attract and welcome migrants.”
