Week of Action in pictures

We share some of your pictures from the Week of Action last week. There were wonderful events from Iona to Abergavenny! They included rallies, beach stunts, buildings being lit up orange, solidarity walks, online discussions, rallies, meetings with MPs and other creative ways you found to show that you and your community stands #TogetherWithRefugees. We were also delighted to hear of the warm reception you received when engaging with the public and thrilled that many more events took place than the 30 we listed!

Everywhere we looked there was a sea of orange hearts spilling over from faith and school halls and erupting from warm and enthusiastic groups of people in public spaces.

Thanks to Sea of Sanctuary (Brighton) for permission to include this video.
