Eurovision organization forbade Salvador Sobral (Portugal’s entry) from wearing his “SOS REFUGEE” sweater. [x]

“If I’m here and I have European exposure, the least thing I can do is a humanitarian message,’ Sobral said, ‘People come to Europe in plastic boats and are being asked to show their birth certificates in order to enter a country. These people are not immigrants, they’re refugees running from death. Make no mistake. There is so much bureaucratic stuff happening in the refugee camps in Greece, Turkey and Italy and we should help create legal and safe pathways from these countries to their destiny countries”
