Refugees Welcome in Wokingham

Offer to home 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 the UK, are proud to do our part and provide refuge to people in their hour of need.

Reasons for signing

  • Because I do welcome refugees. Here, where I live.
  • I'm so thankful I am not in that situation.
  • Our government's response to the refugee crisis has mad me ashamed to be British; I want to feel proud again that we live in a tolerant, welcoming and decent society - which we once were.
