Petition Leave the 1951 Refugee Convention and 1967 Protocol & revoke the Immigration Act
UK to leave the 1951 Refugee Convention and its 1967 Protocol. Along with removing the Immigration Act 1999 from UK law. Responsibility of government in a democracy is to protect and safeguard the lives of its citizens. We believe the Government is failing alarmingly to Keep British citizens safe.
Asylum seekers travel across multiple oceans and multiple safe countries. The UK already has millions unemployed, 280,000 people homeless; sofa serving not in stable accommodation, tens of thousands sleeping rough (Big Issue). In 2019/20 approximately 1.9 million people used a foodbank (Trussell Trust).
