Students celebrate the impact of migrants for 'One Day Without Us'

Tuesday 21-02-2017 - 17:00

On Monday 20 February, students across the UK stood in solidarity with migrants by organising a series of walk outs which demonstrated that, amidst a growing anti-immigrant agenda, together we are stronger.  

The day of action coincided with the debate in parliament on whether Donald Trump’s controversial state visit should go ahead amidst his toxic policies and divisive rhetoric.

One Day Without Us was supported by international students who alone make up 20 per cent of the UKs student population and have been at the forefront of ensuring our campuses are rich and diverse spaces for hundreds of years.  


Highlights from the day


In addition to local actions at colleges and university's nationwide, there was a rally on Parliament Square, where NUS President Malia Bouattia addressed the public alongside other high profile speakers.

Here are some of the highlights from the day:
