Refugees Welcome in Wigan

David Cameron’s response to the refugee crisis has been abysmal with only 1,053 Syrian refugees being granted asylum so far this year. The Prime Minister’s announcement that Britain will grant asylum for a maximum of 20,000 more Syrian refugees by 2020 does not go far enough. This is woefully short of what other European countries are doing and will leave thousands of refugees in limbo.

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.

We need to send a message to the Prime Minister that in cities, towns and villages all across the country we’re ready to welcome people now.

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.
