Refugees Welcome in East Devon

Refugees Welcome in East Devon

East Devon has a population of 136,000. We urge East Devon District Council with the help of everyone in East Devon to offer homes to at least 200 refugees.

Why is this important?

Aylan, the toddler who drowned fleeing Syria, was just three years old. His town was under attack by Isis. His five year old brother and his mum also died trying to reach safety.

Yet our prime minister said ‘we won't take any more refugees’. He thinks that most of us don't care. But 38 Degrees members 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

  • We live in a free country because our parents fought for our country. We should show our gratitude by helping these refugees. EDDC could take a lead and formulate a plan to help in a constructive way. There may be people who would take in a refugee like people took in workers for the war effort
  • Would be happy to help
