The launch of our policy document in Parliament on 27 October was highly successful. We were joined by a number of MPs who listened intently as to the core demands of British Syrians. We also had testimony from Syrians who lived through the brutality of the Assad regime and came to the UK.
Of course, we have to issue a MASSIVE thank you to Jeff Smith MP for hosting us today in Parliament and providing us a platform to make our voices heard. He said during the event that it is critical to listen to Syrian voices and that is exactly what he has done!
The event offered a great opportunity to network with MPs and to push civilian protection. We are very happy to say that this lobbying - supported by individual efforts as people lobbied their individual MPs - is bearing fruit! Civilian protection is increasingly looked on as viable alternative. Please help us in keeping this pressure on our politicians by writing to your MP and asking to meet them in person.
