Last in Line Campaign Urges People Across the UK to Share ‘Selfies’ of Empty Dinner Plates for Religious Minorities Denied Coronavirus Aid

People across the UK are being urged to share selfies of their dinner plates with their local Member of Parliament. Not the usual “camera eats first” shot, but an empty dinner plate.

It is part of a campaign of Christian persecution charity Open Doors UK & Ireland  to highlight how Christians worldwide are being ignored in food and aid distribution during COVID-19 lockdown.

The Last in Line campaign was launched on Monday June 29 to highlight the most vulnerable – including those deliberately ignored because of their faith.

Supporters of the campaign are asked to share pictures of themselves holding an empty bowl with a cross in it, across their social media channels, tagging their MP with #TheLastinLine.

Advocacy campaigns officer at Open Doors, Izzy Stark said: “Right now, the plates of persecuted Christians are being left empty because they have been deliberately neglected when COVID-19 aid has been distributed.

“We have learned of Christians being denied food rations in Bangladesh and getting much smaller aid parcels than their Muslim counterparts in Northern Nigeria.

“In Vietnam, Christian families have been denied food parcels and told ‘Your God will save you!’ In India millions are not being given aid along with fellow members of the Dalit or ‘untouchable’ caste.

“Open Doors partners are doing all they can to get to these people, but there also needs to be change higher up.
