Rwanda UK Asylum Seeker Proposal

PERN has written to local MP Neil Hudson to ask him for a position statement about the Government’s plan to send people seeking asylum in the UK to Rwanda. We’ve expressed our outrage and shock at the despicable, unworkable proposal. 

We invite you to email Dr Hudson too, at Neil.hudson.mp@parliament.uk.  

If you prefer, you can use a template letter – see, for example, ones provided by the pressure groups Safe Passage or Detention Action.   

Help us stand up for the right of traumatised people who are fleeing war and persecution to claim sanctuary in the UK. They should be able to do this without fear of being criminalised for making the desperate journey to our shores, or facing the horrific prospect of being deported more than 4,000 miles to a country with a record of human rights abuse.  

Please write to your MP now to condemn this inhumane proposal.
