Marches for Refugees in Swansea and London

stand-as-one-rally-flyerThis September, world leaders meet at two crucial summits in New York to discuss the refugee crisis.

Before these summits we have an opportunity to demonstrate to governments around the world that we care about refugees and we want our own countries to do more to support them and to find a long-term solution to the refugee crisis.

A large and varied group of organisations including CAFOD, Caritas Social Action Network (CSAN) and others are working together to host a march in central London on September 17.

Ahead of the march, there will be a short ecumenical service of prayer for refugees at St James’ Roman Catholic Church, Spanish Place, 22 George Street, London W1U 3QY from 12 noon til 12.45 p.m.

The march starts at Park Lane and will end in Parliament Square. Click here to register for the march or service


For those who want to attend something more locally in Wales, please join the Stand as One Rally in Castle Square, Swansea from 10.30 – 12.30 p.m.

If you do attend, we’d like to ask you to tweet about the march using #WeStandWithYou and tagging @cafod 

“We hope that the world will heed these scenes of tragic and indeed desperate need, and respond in a way worthy of our common humanity.”

Pope Francis
