In July 2021, the UK government introduced its long-trailed Nationality and Borders Bill. The proposed new law would be a hammer blow to the UK as a place of safety for people fleeing war and persecution. The Together With Refugees coalition is campaigning to show that most people want an approach that is kinder, fairer and more effective. The coalition has adopted an orange heart as its logo. The heart is a symbol that we can all stand behind to express solidarity as a movement. It uses the colours of the refugee nation flag created by Yara Said for the first ever refugee team in the 2016 Olympics. The colours were inspired by a lifebelt, representing hope.
Hay Brecon Talgarth Sanctuary for Refugees (HBTSR) have decided to participate in the Together with Refugees week of action by having a public information session in Hay Market on the 21st October and a ‘Circle of Love ‘ in the heart of Brecon.
