Today is World Refugee Day, and the United Nations wants us to become more aware of the needs of refugees.
“From remote camps to big cities, from the steaming lowlands of Liberia to the high plateaux of Afghanistan, from floodlit fountains to fashion shows and soccer matches, the United Nations today celebrated World Refugee Day with a message of Hope broadcast around the globe by leaders, film stars and refugees themselves. ”
In Toronto Amnesty International, the Red Cross, and a whole load of local and small NGOs where at a rally at Yonge and Dundas Square. It was great to see so many people out and supporting human refugee rights.
