#KeepCrossingBorders – Action on Human Rights Day
Description: The #KeepCrossingBorders video features participants of the Solidarity LAB sharing famous quotes and messages of solidarity in their national languages, as part of the online actions for the European Action Day for Human Rights (10 December). The video tries to challenge the narratives to “build walls and borders” against refugees, migrants and asylum seekers.
#KeepCrossingBorders is a campaign created by youth activists during the international Solidarity LAB Training Course held at Castle Saunderson (Co. Cavan, Ireland) in November 2015. The training was funded by Erasmus+ and was run by Eurobug as part of the NHSM campaign in Ireland. The aim of the training course was for participants to gain skills as NHSM youth activists, to understand the importance of building solidarity with all groups affected by hate speech, and to use creative processes to develop key messages of solidarity.
