The UK must share the responsibility for some of the world’s refugees. There is no time for ‘political bickering and back biting’. It is time to act now to save lives.
The Refugee Council is leading the campaign to save lives of people dying in the Mediterranean. They are appealing for your support to ask your MP to call on the Prime Minister to act now.
The world is in the grip of the greatest refugee crisis in recent memory.
Shamefully, our leaders’ response has been to build the walls of fortress Europe ever higher, leaving desperate people dying disgracefully on our doorstep in the Mediterranean Sea.
On the 25th of June, European leaders have the chance to take decisive action to save lives and stop the smugglers in their tracks by offering refugees another route to safety.
We must resettle more people; bringing them directly and safely to European countries. We must also allow people to reunite with their loved ones; by making it easier for refugees to join their relatives already living in safety in Britain.
