Amnesty 'bans' families from London's South Bank to highlight separation endured by refugees
Stunt by VCCP encourages people to sign a petition against separating parents and kids
Mar 06, 2019
A stunt by Amnesty International shocked families enjoying a day out on London's South Bank by telling them they would have to split up.
To highlight the plight of refugees, who are not always allowed to stay together as families in the U.K., agency VCCP sent security guards into the crowds to inform them they were in a "family-free zone" and couldn't enjoy the river views together.
A video, seen here, shows their incredulous reactions. Amnesty is hoping to underline the ridiculous nature of the law and encourage people to sign a petition calling on the Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, to amend it.
