Monday morning manifestos

We are showing solidarity with the UK's migrant population this morning with this safety pin card from Ben Oakley from last years Art on a Postcard lottery at Moniker Art Fair. Our director has a Polish mother and our project manager has a Syrian father. 

Twitter user @Cheeah's (real name is Allison - she hasn't revealed her surname)  who instigated the campaign said  "This is meant to be more than just a symbolic gesture or a way for like-minded people to pat each other on the back.

If people wear the pin and support the campaign they are saying they are prepared to be part of the solution. It could be by confronting racist behaviour, or if that is not possible at least documenting it.

More generally it is about reaching out to people and letting them know they are safe and welcome," she says.
