 Migrant Voice - Celebrating International Migrants Day

On International Migrants Day (December 18th), Migrant Voice called for the celebration and recognition of the role and contribution of migrants to society.

Ordinary citizens have demonstrated solidarity with migrants and refugees this year and individuals in the UK have a proud history of offering their support.  

However, as the refugee crisis in Europe escalates and conditions deteriorate we called on the international community to listen to migrants’ voices, and uphold our collective values, fundamental rights and human rights rather than degrading them.
