Cambridge MP stands in SolidariTee with University Campaign to Support Refugees in Greece

Daniel Zeichner, MP for Cambridge has pledged his support for campaign group SolidariTee ahead of this week's 'Day of SolidariTee' campaign, when people up and down the country will wear a custom-made T-shirt ins a bid to raise awareness and money for the work of Advocates Abroad; an NGO that provides legal aid and representation to refugess in Greece and Turkey. 

SolidiTee is a national fundraising and campaign group founded by Cambridge University students, Tiara Ataii. The campaign group sell T-shirts at £10 each, which will fund one-night accommodation for a human rights lawyer in Greece. Mr Zeichner met with Tiara, the President and founder of SolidaiTee, to hear about the progress of the campaign and to take a photo with the campaign T-Shirt. 

Daniel said, "it is a real pleasure to be supporting SolidariTee in their quest to help Advocates Abroad provide what is really a basic human right - the right to legal representation.

Refugees already go through the most unbelievable trials and tribulations in order to flee harrowing situations and not having access to legal support in a foreign country can be the difference between being granted asylum and being returned to the country you are trying to escape. 

I applaud the work of Tiara and others at SolidariTee for galvanising this campaign that seeks to help some of the world's most vulnerable."
