Over the last week, large groups of activists have marched through city centres and town squares to condemn Russia’s violence against Ukraine and show support and solidarity with conflict victims and refugees whose lives have been torn apart.
Protesting can generate significant change by pressuring and holding to account government ministers and Ukraine supporters have been demanding heavier sanctions to be put on Russia, and smooth passage to be given to Ukrainians who have fled to the UK.
As the war rages on, civilians are killed, and homes bombed to dust, further protests have been across the UK. With more demonstrations and protests added to the list every day, these are the details of where and when you can get involved and have your voice heard.
In the meantime, don't forget that you can make a financial donation to support those in the Ukraine, send clothes and essentials, via these drop off and collection points, sponsor a Ukrainian refugee, and soon you may also be able to host a Ukrainian refugee here in the UK.
