Yesterday a two year old child was shot by Belgium police forces. We do not wish to sensationalise or dramatise these events, a child has been killed and people must know the truth of what is happening here.
This afternoon in Dunkirk the atmosphere is sombre, with both refugees and volunteers alike still reeling from the news. The Kurdish community in Dunkirk is one that ourselves, the Dunkirk Refugee Women's Centre and the Refugee Community Kitchen work particularly closely with.
This tragedy should never have occurred and no parent should ever have to experience such a thing. How many more people will needlessly lose their lives here?
Follow the inquest, write to your local MP and push for change. Speak out against bigotry and this inhumane treatment that is happening everyday at our border.
