This is a human tragedy, families are fleeing war and violence and our government’s turning its back. How can it do this? It’s morally wrong. Across history all our ancestors have faced situations like this. Just because we are safe now, doesn’t mean we should forget what it feels like to be terrified for your life, to take enormous risks to flee atrocities.
Please urge David Cameron to act now. Please do everything you can to make sure the UK steps up and offers immediate sanctuary to the refugees arriving in Europe. We have to work together on this. It’s absolutely imperative and makes our petty political squabbles pale into insignificance by comparison.
