We are a 'Borough of Sanctuary'
And we will ..
We support the Ukrainian people. As we face a new time of threat, sanctions, anxiety.
We have the resolve. We must face and win a new cold war by using hard and soft power, hearts and minds.
Welcoming refugees - persuading Government to raise their game. Open our borders (and stop shoving them from Calais to Lille to Paris and back).
We welcome support for Ukrainians here or on their way. For Russians stranded or who seek asylum, or who are brave enough to disagree with Putin from within Russia.
We are a Borough of Sanctuary. Let's make Colchester a haven for those escaping war, and terror.
Those are our values and we will work x-party to help those heading our way, in every way we can.
