On Friday 18th June, the students from Blaise High School took part in an event to show their support for National Refugee Week. Pairs of students walked around our enormous playing fields carrying 2 metre long strips of international flag bunting fluttering colourfully in the breeze.
The theme of this year's National Refugee Week was taken from a moment in Martin Luther King’s historic ‘I have a dream’ speech when he turns his attention to the White people who, realising their destiny and that of their Black fellow citizens was intertwined, joined the movement for equal rights. “They have come to realise that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom,” he said. “We cannot walk alone.” Life is tough for many of us right now, and the future feels very uncertain. Looking after ourselves, our families and communities takes time and energy. There is so much to do. The challenges of the past year have exposed the deep inequalities between us, including in housing, income and access to healthcare. But the crisis has also shown how interconnected we are – that the wellbeing of each of us depends on the welfare, safety and hard work of others. We are part of a shared ‘us’.
Your donations will be shared between Bristol based refugee charities.
