Closed petition Abandon plans to transfer asylum seekers to Rwanda.

It's essential for the UK Government to acknowledge the inherent flaws and risks associated with this inhumane transfer. By ceasing this policy, the UK can demonstrate its commitment to human rights, international obligations, and the preservation of its moral standing as a compassionate nation.

More details

By transferring asylum seekers to Rwanda, the UK potentially violates its obligations under international law. Multiple reputable organisations, including Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), have expressed concerns over effective legal protection and access to fair asylum procedures in Rwanda.
