You would think from press coverage of the ‘Mediterranean boat people’ crisis that the ‘migrants’ are mostly from sub-Saharan Africa just looking for a better life.

What they say
“Greenbelt is an inspiring and fascinating celebration of social justice, breaking down barriers between those of faith and no faith. It’s not only good fun – it lifts the hearts of all of us who believe in a better world.”
“My first trip to Greenbelt revolutionised my view of the vitality of faith in the UK and I have been telling stories ever since. What a remarkable gathering!”
Barbara Brown Taylor
