The campaigner who designed this t-shirt, Bryan is an artist living in Wakefield, who campaigns with These Walls Must Fall as part of the ‘Voice for Voiceless Immigration Detainees Yorkshire (VVIDY) group, and volunteers for Wakefield and District City of Sanctuary and is involved with The Art House Wakefield.
He explained that he was inspired to use the phrase ‘Breaking the Chains’ after reading an article about the ‘Breaking the Chains’ project run by Migrant and Refugee Children’s Legal Unit, which is described as “a unique and ground-breaking project designed to meet the specific needs of asylum-seeking children and young people by providing a holistic legal representation and advice service which is child-centred and child-friendly. The project seeks to advise, educate, empower and engage children and young people in the asylum process alongside professionals from both legal and non-legal sectors. It aims to improve the outcomes (both legally and socially) for asylum seeking children and young people, especially those who are most vulnerable or from marginalised communities”. As a parent, Bryan found this really inspiring.
“Also, Break the Chain to weaken your enemies.Breaking the chain is about opening doors for all not only the selected ones. Chains represent locks we’re locked in, and as an immigrant, refugee or Asylum seeker we want to see the lock unlocked “
Funds raised by these t-shirts will go directly to the local These Walls Must Fall campaign in Yorkshire, helping people at risk of detention to lead the campaign to end the system.
