On September 14th, Theresa May will be attending a meeting of the EU's 28 member states for emergency talks on Europe’s escalating refugee crisis.
It is vital that she takes with her the conviction that the British people that she represents are open to helping refugees and that we can’t continue to allow thousands to die trying to reach the EU and their legal right to claim asylum.
We have to ensure that refugees can reach Europe safely. There needs to be either official safe transport provided, or if people could apply for asylum from outside the EU they would be able to enter by official routes.
We need to prioritise the fast processing of asylum claims from people from particularly dangerous regions, such as Syria.
We can’t allow any EU countries to close their borders or build fences. There needs to be Europe-wide consensus on providing help where it is so desperately needed, relieving pressure on the Mediterranean countries.
Please invite anyone and everyone!
We will be gathering on Park Lane on September 12th to show support for positive change ahead of the meeting on the 14th September.
