When war breaks out, the Government deliberately closes down refugees’ legal options for international travel. Travel visas are refused and without visas, refugees aren’t allowed to board planes…
There is a way out. But we need your help. Ask your MP to #LetThemFly now.
Of course it’s important for us to ‘put out the fire’ and stop conflicts in places like Syria, but while the house burns, we must help the people inside reach safety. We must offer escape routes.
And the Government has the chance to do just that. On 30th March at a special United Nations conference on Syrian refugees, countries like Britain have the chance to let them fly.
That would mean refugees could reach a safe place legally and safely, with a valid visa in their hands.
Please write to your MP to ask the Minister for Syrian refugees, Richard Harrington, to ensure the UK offers safe passage to refugees. Filling out our simple online form will only take a couple of minutes and it could make a big difference.
