Story

Many people are now trapped in Tijuana at the Mexican border with the US. They need practical support and they need our solidarity.

In October a group of about 3,000 people decided to leave Honduras because life had become unbearable. And they decided to travel as a group because it is a perilous journey.

This became the Migrant Caravan and it grew in size to around 10,000. In the run-up to the US mid-term elections they were called criminals and invaders. This is false.

They have been driven from their homes by a combination of climate change, extreme poverty, shocking violence and a criminal political elite. The migrants are refugees and like all refugees a cross-section of society with many children. They want to work and to build a better life for their families. You can learn more by listening to our podcast with photo-journalist Sean Hawkey who was with the caravan on their journey.

While they received poignant and inspiring acts of solidarity from Mexicans throughout their journey, they now face some hostility in Tijuana and across the border in the US.

As a parent I would do anything to keep my children safe. I support other parents currently doing the same, despite all the obstacles my government is throwing in their path.
