Pro-British refugee activists who entered the Conservative Party’s dinner chanted slogans condemning Home Secretary Priti Patel’s “racist” policy on refugees.
The move was widely supported by activists on digital platforms, expressing their support for the fight against racism and insisting on refusing to treat refugees in this way.
According to a clip posted on Green New Deal Rising’s Twitter page, activists ignored the minister during his speech at a spring party hosted by a conservative association in Nottinghamshire’s Bassetlow.

The entry of several activists and supporters of the refugees and raising slogans against Patel showed the video as rejecting his racism against the refugees.
One activist told the minister, “Your racist policies are killing people … Your plans to send asylum seekers to Rwanda are inhumane and are destroying people’s lives.”
In the same clip, one activist became angry and said, “We are saddened by the way you treat refugees in the UK.”

Immediately, security forces stormed the hall, chanting “Shout out: Refugees are welcome here!”
Last month, the British Parliament passed a law sending refugees to “third world” countries, including Rwanda, which caused widespread controversy among activists.
The new law imposes harsher penalties on illegal immigrants and immigrants, as well as sending asylum seekers to third world countries.
Recently, members of the “Green New Deal Is Coming” group boycotted similar meetings, denouncing ways to deal with refugees and other issues.
