Yesterday, Ahmed Badaoui was spending the afternoon with his family when Assad’s missiles targeted his home in #Ariha, southern #Idlib.
The 13-year-old boy was rushed to hospital with his mother, who died from her injuries. His father too lost his life under the rubble. 1/4
Last night and this morning, yet again, boats landed on #Lesvos. Yesterday 26 people were brought into the Quarantine Camp.
In between the 7th of December 2020 to 10 January 2021, 77 people arrived at Lesvos, out of whom 43 were from #Somalia and 24 from #Afghanistan.
"The UK has a proud history of supporting refugees."
How many times have you heard politicians say that? A proud history is worth nothing to people fleeing war and persecution right now. We say we need a proud future of welcoming refugees. Would everyone in this video agree?
At the Liaison Committee just now, Boris Johnson claimed that the ‘no recourse to public funds’ rule is for people “who are here illegally or unlawfully”. That’s completely wrong. It’s imposed on migrants’ visas.
No Recourse To Public Funds is a public health issue.
It denies people a safety net, forcing them into dangerous work or destitution.
It applies to 1.4m people with visas + those without. The PM knows that.
This is a deliberate choice. Anti-migrant dogma over public health.
The conditions at Napier Barracks are Britain’s shame.
Since Friday, 4 people have attempted to take their own lives.
Seeking asylum is not a privilege, it is a legal and human right.
This cannot be the best the UK has to offer vulnerable people fleeing war & persecution.

This brave act of solidarity and love has moved 130,000 people in France to oppose the deportation a young immigrant, a baker’s apprentice.
May Stéphane Ravacley’s courage inspire us to resist hate and dehumanization, and to build common cause instead.
