Lampedusa Cross Walk of Witness – 19th of November 2016, Plymouth

Forced out by war, poverty or persecution, millions of people live uncertain lives as migrants and refugees. But each of us, moved by faith, can act in welcome, respect and love.

So far this year hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced and are making perilous journeys in search of shelter. UNHCR says over 3,000 people have drowned in the Mediterranean trying to get to safety in Europe in the first 6 months of 2016. That is 1,000 MORE than in the same months of 2015.

That is why CAFOD, the Catholic Diocese of Plymouth, Anglican Diocese of Exeter and others are organising a walk of witness in solidarity with people who have been forced to become refugees because of war, climate change, exploitation and persecution.
