A protest was held in Manchester Piccadilly Gardens on 4 September titled 'All Lives Matter! No Human is Illegal!' Rethink Rebuild Society was one of over twelve organisations that sponsored this protest. The turnout was very high and diverse and Manchester residents stated loud and clear that we want Manchester and the wider UK to resettle more refugees.
Lucy Powell MP for Central Manchester has called on David Cameron to fulfil the UK's "‘moral obligation’ to act" after she 'met with members of the city’s Syrian community'. It was a pleasure to meet with Lucy in the Annual Syrian Fun Day in Manchester and we look forward to working with her on Syria-related issues.
