Amnesty creates first ever 'family-free' zone.
It’s an undeniable truth that families belong together, but this is not currently the case for a number of refugees who are denied a family life in Britain.
This is why Amnesty International UK organised the first ever ‘Family-free Zone’ on the Southbank on Saturday 2nd March, as part on their ongoing effort campaigning for refugee families to be together.
We want to show the Government that there is still widespread public support to change this issue, by highlighting the ridiculousness of these rules. The ‘Family-free Zone’ parodies the absurdity of these rules and asks the UK public to back our call to the Home Secretary to change them once and for all. Sam Strudwick, Head of Communications and Engagement at Amnesty International
