For those wanting to go against the popular media narrative of refugees, there will be a protest in Oxford on Sunday. Bring your best 'refugees welcome' placards!
Since the war in Syria began, over 4 million refugees - caught between the deadly barrel bombs of the Assad regime and the criminal brutality of ISIS - have been forced to leave their homes. While Germany has offered to take 800,000 refugees, the UK has ‘opted out’ of its EU responsibility to take care of some of these desperate refugees. Instead, our politicians seem to debate only how best to keep them out.
