Why the refugee crisis is a legal crisis at heart

“It strikes me that the refugee crisis is a legal crisis at heart, characterised by misinformation, disinformation, and lengthy waiting-times.”

- Varsity, 11th December 2018

 

Student’s t-shirts to raise money for refugees

“People seemed to have two main thoughts; firstly, that this was suprapolitical – that this was something that all people should be invested in, and secondly, that they wanted to do something. Solidarity wasn’t enough. So I thought of a way to combine both a show of support and something more practical, and came up with the idea of selling t-shirts.”

- Varsity (Cambridge), 17th February 2017

 

Cambridge student's campaign for refugees goes national

“Tiara says, “We talk a lot about how divided society is becoming, so the idea of students from all around the country uniting around one message was a really exciting prospect.””

- The Tab Cambridge, 20th August 2017

 

Meet SolidariTee, the student refugee campaign

“Amid European state nationalism and stringent control over inter-state movement of people, the SolidariTee campaign demonstrates the capacity for today’s youth to reach out across borders and support our fellow people.”

- Student Newspaper (Edinburgh), 9th November 2014

 

SolidariTee: Student activism for global issues

“The fundraising concept isn’t novel but it certainly is unique: the design on this year’s T-shirts comes from a meeting between an Afghan man and an Advocates lawyer in Chios. It’s a map of his life; where he was born, where he trained as an army officer, where he was captured by the Taliban. It’s personal, as everything referring to such a horrific humanitarian crisis should be.”

- Cherwell (Oxford), 3rd December 2017
