A MARCH to oppose the government's Nationality and Borders Bill is set to take place in Southampton next month. 

Members of Southampton Stand Up To Racism will take over the streets on Saturday, February 12 to show support for a more compassionate approach to refugees.

People are expected to assemble by the Bargate to present a mass display of Orange Hearts, which symbolise sympathy for those escaping conflict and persecution. The heart, inspired by the refugee nation flag and the colours of a lifebelt, represents hope and kindness.

The group is calling on Southampton MPs to vote against the principle of differentiated treatment for refugees who come to the UK who come in via clandestine routes.

They are also demanding MPs support the inclusion of a resettlement target in the Bill - at least 10,000 refugees a year.

The protest will run from 3pm until 4.30pm.
