What budget cuts mean for asylum seekers

The purpose of this film is to raise awareness about the plight of asylum seekers in Britain. What people need to know is that there are more than 200,000 REFUSED asylum seekers living here in the UK.

A"refused” asylum seeker is someone who has had their claim rejected by our government. They cannot return home because they would be in danger.
They’re not allowed to work here, or access the benefits we take for granted.

Our government is attempting to deter refugees from applying for asylum in Britain by ruthlessly forcing more than a quarter of a million vulnerable people who came here for help, into a state of destitution.

This is wrong, and it needs to be put right.
Write to your MP and demand humane treatment for those who come here seeking our help. We are one of the wealthiest nations in the world, we have a obligation to assist these people. The politicians need to be brought to book for the policies they implement. Do the right thing. Get on the phone, write a letter, send an email, take action now to bring this national disgrace to an end.
