GLASGOW WELCOMES REFUGEES
"Today 950+ people came out in the pouring rain to show love for refugees and the asylum seeking human beings our state refuses help. Together we gathered £2622, which went directly to the Glasgow Night Shelter. Amazingly, the event idea was conceived, arranged and publicised all within 10 days. All of the efforts were volunteered with 0 costs. Many we must thank (in no particular order):
- Glasgow Night Shelter for their ongoing work helping people who need it most
- All of the amazing musicians who believe in social justice and performed for free
- Eilidh, our compere
- the 'Winning Sperm Party' sound system
- Queens Park Arena who pushed us quickly through the application forms
- The musicians who submitted free music to be played on the stereo between performances.
- The people who supported the cause and selflessly helped promote the event in such a short space of time (mainly on Facebook).
- 'Inhouse Stewards' who collected money, cleaned up, counted people and explained what was going on to the public.
- Our poster artist, Benjamina from Govanhill.
- Our mysterious poster photocopying man, distributors and people who took posters in their shops.
- All of us who attended the arena, donated so generously and, for five hours, made an atmosphere that was peaceful, welcoming and nice."
We are excited to bring this free performance in support of Glasgow Night Shelter's ongoing work and their efforts towards a Women's Night Shelter for asylum seekers in Glasgow.
