Refugees Welcome in Brighton

Refugees Welcome in Brighton

Offer to home 50 refugee families in Brighton

Why is this important?

Not 'solving the problem' as our prime minister thinks is no excuse for not helping those in need.

And if he thinks that most of us don't care we have to prove him wrong. We do care. We don't want Britain to be the kind of country that turns its back as people drown in their desperation to flee places like Syria.

So let's stand up for Britain's long tradition of helping refugees fleeing war. Let's show the Prime Minister that we, the people of the UK, are proud to do our part and provide refuge to people in their hour of need.

Reasons for signing

  • If I needed a safe home I would want to know someone will open the door - it's the right thing to do.
  • Because I'm a human from Earth.
  • 38 yrs ago, I was forced to flee my country. It took a year of hardship to reach Britain. And I was a professional woman. There were people who showed kindness. Now, again, it is my turn to show kindness to others. I have written to Peter Kyle, who sent a gracious response. I will copy these to Les Hamilton. Maybe we sould call an informal meeting. Invite as many relevant participants as possible. Lorna deS
