Members of Extinction Rebellion and Stand Up To Racism will come together tomorrow in protest of the Government's treatment of refugees.

Demonstrators from across South London will march from Tooting Broadway to Tooting Common at 11am (October 24), in response to Priti Patel’s proposals for detention camps.

The march will end with a rally on Tooting Common, near the junction of Elmbourne Road and Tooting Bec Road, where refugees and members of XR and Stand Up To Racism will hold speeches.

A spokesperson for XR Wandsworth said:

"Successive governments have created a hostile environment for refugees in this country, but we have never before seen the inhuman measures that the current racist regime is proposing. Priti Patel is intending to use detention centres – essentially prisons outsourced to private companies – to house people seeking asylum. These places have long-standing and well-documented records of violence and abuse and are not fit to accommodate those who are vulnerable and in need of protection. This is why we feel we must challenge Patel’s plans."
