Why do people care more about discounts than they do a refugee crisis?

, ,

It’s nearly Black Friday again and it’s got me wondering…

Why is it that so many people care more about discounts, than they do a refugee crisis?

No judgement, just pure questioning. I’m trying to understand?

Why do we connect / respond more to cheap stuff than people who have no stuff at all?

If everyone gave that extra 20%, 50%, 70% they are saving over the next few days, directly to those fleeing with nothing to save their lives…

Well then, Black Friday would be amazing!

You can actually do that…

Jangala, our Wi-Fi update!

, , ,

Just over ONE YEAR since the demolition of the Calais Jungle, and we’re still working hard on our W-Fi solutions for humanitarian emergencies.

Back in 2015, we put up the first large Wi-Fi network in the Jungle which was used by thousands of people every week.

After the partial demolition, we provided the Wi-Fi system used by the very first Refugee Info Bus which proved to be very useful during the entire demolition of the camp, when people needed information more than ever.

Fast forward to now, and we’re still working to provide internet access for some of the hundreds of people still living in precarious conditions in and around Calais.

Check out our page Jāṅgala for specific updates relating to Wi-Fi:

58 deaths in Las Vegas and chaos in Barcelona.

It feels like a sad day today.

A difficult Monday for the world.

But it’s on days like these, when it seems like there is none, that it is even more important to shine your light.

Shine brightly.

Be strong.

Be positive.

See only love…because it’s everywhere that you look

Dear Mr Trump

,

Dear Mr. Trump,

This is not what greatness looks like.

The world rejects your fear, hate-mongering, and bigotry.
We reject your support for torture, your calls for murdering civilians, and your general encouragement of violence.
We reject your denigration of women, Muslims, Mexicans, and millions of others who don’t look like you, talk like you, or pray to the same god as you.

Facing your fear we choose compassion.
Hearing your despair we choose hope.
Seeing your ignorance we choose understanding.

As citizens of the world, we stand united against your brand of division.

Sincerely,
The Worldwide Tribe Team

Trump’s ban on Muslims

,

It’s a strange time to be alive… A pivotal moment in history and a difficult period for the world.

There’s so much I want to say about the decisions Trump is making right now that I don’t even know where to start. I keep sitting down to write this, but I haven’t been able to find the words without coming across rant-y and angry… But I’m not angry…I’m upset.

What’s making me upset is when I think about people like my little foster brother, who fled his country aged 13 and made the craziest journey you have ever heard to try and find safety.

Girls like my pal Noor, who saw her best friends’ bodies blow up when a bomb hit her university while she was in the final year of her law degree in Syria.

Guys like Saleh, a Sudanese friend of mine who fled his village the day his family home was torched and his twin brother and sister, who lay sleeping inside, burnt to death…

The men, women and children I’ve sat drinking tea with in refugee camps across Europe, who have life stories you could not even imagine… And this is how the world is responding.

HOW IS THIS HAPPENING?

I want to say to them that I am so sorry. I am so so sorry for the current state of the world. So sorry that my voice is not strong enough to change what you are going through right now. So sorry that I can’t make it better.

But I also want to say that I will continue to speak up for you. I will tell my friends about you, share your stories, and keep fighting for you.

Because from when I was young, thinking back even to school….when someone is being bullied, when someone is being unfairly and devastatingly kicked when they are down, I know that I can’t stand back and watch.

WHAT WE CAN DO:

1. Get your voice and opinion heard – talk to your friends, share Facebook posts, educate yourself, read, learn, make sure you’re as in the know as you can be!

2. Go to protests – word on the street is that Trump was pretty affected by the scale of the March last weekend. Let’s shake him up by continuing to stand in solidarity with refugees, immigrants and each other and fight for equality.

3. Write to your MP – This week Theresa May HELD DONALD TRUMP’S HAND. Are we OK with this? Let them know…add your voice!

4. Take Action! Volunteer with us or one of our partners

5. Donate to our work continuing to support refugees on the ground, as well as raising awareness and working in education

6. Listen to each other. Talk to new people from different countries, with different perspectives, backgrounds, religions and ideas. Our differences are what makes the world a beautiful and exciting place to be. Embrace that.
