Catholic Charity supports Rights of HIV Positive Migrants

The chairperson of ‘Catholics for AIDS Prevention and Support’ Vincent Manning, has been invited to speak at a rally in Trafalgar Square on Monday evening in support of migrants living with HIV in the UK. The rally coincides with the start of ‘Refugee Week’. Organisers ‘Act Up London’ and  ‘London Artists Projects’ describe it as  “A joyful and peaceful action for HIV+ and HIV- migrants, their friends, family and allies.”  Vincent Manning said he intends to convey Pope Francis’ prayer intention for June: ‘the welcome and respect of refugees and migrants wherever they seek shelter’. Green Party Leader Natalie Bennet is also due to speak, along with representatives from several HIV agencies. “As Catholics it is important that we show God’s love for any person living with HIV and that our Church welcomes them, wherever they come from, and whatever their situation. Migrants and Refugees living with HIV today, are Christ present, and we will be judged by how we treat them” said Mr Manning. The Rally ‘Act Up For Love’ will take place between 6pm and 8pm in Trafalgar Square, on Monday 15th June.
