Solidarity Selfies to mark World Refugee Day

Galway Daily news GARN looking for solidarity selfies for World Refugee Day

Today is World Refugee Day and Galway Anti Racism Network is hoping people will take some solidarity selfies to promote the cause.

Members of GARN will be roaming around the city with signs and stickers today asking people to take a selfie that can be shared on social media to promote a welcoming message for World Refugee Day.

The event is starting in Eyre Square at 7pm before moving on to Woodquay, then up through Shop Street and Quay Street and finishing up in the West End of the city.

GARN have said that the aim of the event is to “get as many pictures as possible of people holding our custom-made signs and ask them to share the images onto all social media platforms”.

The activist group hopes that a good turnout and a willingness of the public to take part will get #GalwayWelcomesRefugees trending online to spread the word.
