London Must Act: Lead With Humanity & Pledge Safety to Refugees from Unsafe Island Camps

Recent news

You stood up for human rights in London!

If you are receiving this message, it means that you took the time during a global pandemic to stand up for human rights in London!

We want to say a big ‘thank you’ for supporting the London Must Act movement.

With your signatures, we want to bring a mandate to London's leaders, asking them to pledge to relocate refugees and asylum seekers from the dangerous Greek Aegean Island camps.

You might have seen in the news last week that in Moria camp on the island of Lesvos, the largest of all the Greek Island camps, some camp residents have tested positive for COVID-19. This is a truly life-threatening situation.

We need London to act now because it is a humanitarian emergency. In fact, it was already an emergency before the virus. Human rights abuses have been perpetrated in the name of ‘protecting Europe’s borders’ over the past 5 years, making the situation worse and worse, but the virus makes relocation even more pressing.

You have already shown support by signing the petition.

If you want to help us further, you can also:

  • Share the petition with your networks! Even if you have already done so, sharing is key for us to get the word out and boost signatures.
  • Follow London Must Act on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay up to date with the campaign developments, other actions, and news from the camps and across Europe.
  • If you feel inspired, why not create a piece of art that encapsulates the message you want to send about London welcoming refugees. It could be a photo, a drawing, a painting, a piece of music, anything! Make sure you share your creations with us, or you can even get in touch with onboardme@europemustact.org if you would like to join Europe Must Act’s Creative Collective.
  • Join us this Saturday on 23rd May for our Europe-wide #WeHaveSpace Day of Action. Follow us on social media to receive further updates throughout the week.

Thank you again for the support you have shown us. We are proud to have you with us in this movement.
