A monthly bouldering session that brings refugees and local climbers together at The Climbing Hangar's Liverpool walls is featured in a new video series by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the UN Refugee Agency.
Liverpool's climbing community has come together to provide an innovative space for refugees and asylum-seekers to access the physical and mental health benefits of bouldering while meeting friendly faces and forming lasting friendships.
Maybe because they think it is a feel-good piece glossing over the UK's appalling record on asylum seekers. Whether being in a boulder hall in Liverpool is better than locked up on a barge is a matter of debate.
Its a shame that you react like this. Regardless of the UKs approach to asylum seekers, this is a great programme run by passionate people, that brings people together to participate in a sport that we all love.
Perhaps this article and video will encourage other people and other walls to do similar things; this can only be positive and maybe contribute to offsetting the less positive aspects of the UKs approach to asylum seekers.
