Day Of Action On The Dubs Amendment - 14 October
Stand Up To Racism is organising a day of action in support of Alf Dubs Amendment to the Immigration Bill on Friday 14th October. The ‘Dubs Amendment’ should have triggered the acceptance of thousands of unaccompanied refugee children into Britain, but Theresa May is not enacting the amendment in any meaningful way.
This inaction is taking place at a time when the Calais “jungle” refugee camp is under threat of demolition. The last demolition of the southern section of the camp in February resulted in a number of child refugees going missing. It is unacceptable that children in the camp are being put at risk of exploitation as a result of the government’s lack of action around the Dubs Amendment.
Help us pressure the government to act on the amendment now. Organise an activity in your school, college, workplace, or local community on the day to raise the amendment and lack of action on unaccompanied child refugees.
Organise an assembly around the Dubs Amendment/unaccompanied child refugees
Tweet out about the Dubs Amendment using #EnactDubsNow
