From Wishaw to Calais #RefugeesWelcome

Campaign for Socialism member Angela Feeney is one of the volunteers behind the Wishaw to Calais aid convoy to help refugees arriving in Europe.  Angela said:

Wishaw to Calais was started up over a glass of wine with my daughter. We, like everyone of you are appalled at what is happening to people in Europe. Little did I know that the whole of the country feels the same as us. It feels like Scotland was just waiting for someone to take the iniative. I want to take a convoy of as many vans as we can load. I want to send out a clear message that we are all standing shoulder to shoulder with out brothers and sisters who have fled their home country. This is not party political. We have support from trade unions, SSP members, church groups, local mosque, SVDP and football fans. This is a statement of solidarity and internationalism. Please support, come along if you can. The more the merrier.
