Last weekend Cambridge contributed six vehicles, carrying just under thirty people and over three thousand pounds' worth of aid, to the 250-vehicle Convoy to Calais in protest at the treatment of refugees by European governments. (In the event the convoy was refused entry by the French authorities: see the People's Assembly's report.) This weekend the Strummers music club has organized a concert to mark Refugee Week, and to say once again that refugees should be welcome in Britain.Read more
