The ‘I Welcome’ exhibition which has been running through most of December in Salisbury Library, ended today. We have no means of knowing how many people attended but a number of people signed the visitors book and some of their comments are shared below.
We do not know how lucky we are in the UK. We moan about the silliest of things. Just think! We could have been born on a rubbish tip, then we would know we had problems!
Love not hate, be thankful for what we have.
I am ashamed of us Europeans leaving people freezing on the streets who are refugees from wars we started or sold arms for. Hundreds of children sleep under hedges at Calais now.
Excellent exhibition and shaming.
Well done Salisbury Amnesty, excellent exhibition.
Excellent exhibition very well done.
Amnesty International – what a brilliant exhibition of photos and words. We need more of this. How we react to other’s needs is what defines us and our ‘civilised’ society.
Excellent exhibition but shaming to ‘civilised’ states – what has changed? Keep up the good work AI!
Required viewing by all (including politicians). All going on while we ‘want, want, want’ on our mobiles. We’re asleep.
Well done AI Salisbury Group – excellent exhibition of photos and thought provoking commentary.
Powerful images that shame the world, and us in our comfortable city. Thank you Amnesty International for putting this on.
Thank you Salisbury Amnesty group for raising awareness and for [the] call to action. Shocking statistics on your host map.
Our thanks to all those who took the trouble to comment. All comments were favourable.
