Refugees Welcome in Hackney
Offer to home 50 refugee families in Hackney
Why is this important?
On Monday David Cameron announced we’ll welcome 20,000 more Syrian refugees. But there’s a catch. This will happen over the next 5 years, leaving thousands of refugees in limbo. It’s now up to us to show that in cities, towns and villages all across the country we’re ready to welcome people now.
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. 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 Hackney, are proud to do our part and provide refuge to people in their hour of need.
