Red Wednesday to be commemorated with the lighting up of Parliament

Red Wednesday will be commemorated in the UK on Wednesday 28th November when churches, schools and public buildings will be lit red – to express solidarity with those persecuted for their Christian faith. This year many will focus on the plight of Asia Bibi who has been exonerated by Pakistan’s highest court, having suffered nine years of incarceration - with the death penalty hanging over her. Now, she has been forbidden to leave Pakistan and the UK has declined to offer her asylum. Fiona has obtained agreement from the Speaker to light up the Houses of Parliament red on Wednesday 28th November.
