arlier today, outside the Welsh Assembly, 1DayWithoutUs celebrated migrant contribution across the UK and promoted social justice, though speech, song and 'unification'.
The event was organised to show appreciation for different cultures, to 'connect people' and to raise awareness of how much migrants contribute to the UK.
When we asked one of the event organisers 'Why was the event so sudden?' She said 'It's good to be spontaneous in life,' that the event had been 'in the development for quite a while.'
'The idea is we all get together today, at one o'clock, we [all make] a human-chain together. [It's] really symbolic – it's been really symbolic throughout history of coming together in solidarity – to fight for social and economic justice.'
When asked whether the event was provoked by Trump, she said 'This protest itself is nothing to do with Trump.
'It's to celebrate migrants, but we do reject any negative connotations with politics that use migrants as scapegoats.'
During a speech, Eunice - a refugee and one of the event organisers – said she wanted to 'make Britain great again', expressing how migrants want to contribute to Britain and be part of a 'multi-cultural' nation.
The event was organised to encourage people to come and join outside the Senedd and make a human-chain as a sign of unity – celebrating the importance of migrants working within the UK.
This protest was said to be 'a gesture of unification against xenophobic, rhetoric and policy.'
