Invade Yourself

  • Yasmin Spencer

Recently politicians and the media have increasingly vilified refugees. Ring leaders such as The Daily Mail, Priti Patel and Nigel Farage have dehumanised the people risking their lives to cross the channel by calling them an 'invasion', a 'swarm' and branding them as 'criminals'. This spreading of hate messaging only causes British people to lose empathy when considering the hardships that refugees have faced while fleeing for their lives and the safety of their families. This social media poster (reposted by Choose Love) is a direct response to the hatred circulating and the lack of compassion British people have for those in the most desperate situation. Any feedback is encouraged and I apologise for the quality of the image.
