Rejected petition Stop the Rwanda plan and protect the rights of people seeking asylum in the UK

The Government’s plans to ship people seeking asylum to Rwanda were always cruel and immoral. Now that the Supreme Court has found the scheme to be unlawful, the Government must immediately abandon the deal and any other similar plans

More details

The Rwanda plan is an attack on the principle of refugee protection in the UK. The Government must uphold its legal and moral responsibility to people in need of protection. We also urge the Government to end and refrain from any other deals to send people to third countries or have their asylum claims processed offshore. We call on the Government to protect the universal right to seek asylum, and uphold everyone’s human rights regardless of where they are from or how they came to this country.
