Thank you for writing to your MP

Since the Nationality and Borders Bill was introduced to Parliament last July, over 7,000 of you have written to your MPs asking them to stand up against some of the Bill’s most cruel and counterproductive measures and demand a more compassionate asylum system. It is crucial to our campaigning that MPs hear from their constituents about this issue to show that there is a powerful movement of people who don’t want the changes to be brought it, and who care enough to show they oppose them.  Thank you.

Thank you for signing our Anti-Refugee Bill petition

Over 64,000 people signed their name and opposed the Government’s Anti-Refugee Bill. Thank you.

On 16th November we delivered these 64,000 names together with similar petitions from other organisations – totalling 179,166 people – to the Prime Minister at Downing Street.

Our message was loud and clear – the Government Nationality and Borders Bill is unacceptable, cruel and should not be passed into law in its current form.

If the Government is serious about saving lives, it must abandon the brutal, punitive measures in the Bill and invest in creating more safe routes for refugees to get to the UK.

Find out more about the passage of the Bill through Parliament and our analysis of the Government’s plans.

Thank you for showing your solidarity

On 20th October hundreds of people gathered in London’s Parliament Square, with others joining similar events around the country, to show solidarity with refugees and send a clear message that refugee are welcome.

We know that our communities can be generous and welcoming and that many people want to do more for those who come here for safety. Through this rally, we stood in solidarity with refugees and people seeking asylum and showed the Government that there is strong opposition to the Nationality and Borders Bill.

Many people who couldn’t attend in person showed their support online, and shared and amplified the voices of the refugees who shared their stories and experiences on the day.
