Over 250 people came to Malcolm X centre for Human Rights Day event about destitution of asylum seekers..

For Human Rights day on Monday 10th December in the evening we had about 250-300 people at Macolm X centre. It started with some speeches from asylum seekers and from some people from Refugee Action and City of Sanctuary.

Then George Ferguson, the Mayor of  Bristol spoke and he said he felt bad and we should attempt to make better situation for asylum seekers and for everyone in Bristol overall. To try to make Bristol a real City of Sanctuary. Also we had councillor Ron Stone with us who spoke about the destitution motion going to the city council in the future. After this we had dinner and finally some music, that was magic and great.
Thanks everyone.
