Refugees Welcome in Nottingham
Offer to home at least 50 refugee families.
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 has just 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 Nottingham, are proud to do our part and provide refuge to people in their hour of need.
David Cameron is forgetting that these are not simply "swarms of migrants" but human beings who deserve a chance at a better life for themselves and their families. We as an area and a nation need to help the people of Syria and show that we are not indifferent to the sufferings of others.
