News coverage of migrant crossing & politicians' response have been deplorable but many voices pushing back with humanity, reasons & legal arguments. In particular, efforts of people with lived-experience of asylum/migration speaking up must be recognised - it can't be easy.

We are dismayed at the lack of humanity towards those arriving in boats to seek safety. They’re not statistics or props for the news: they are people like us. We were in those boats once too. No one wants to do those journeys. We don’t choose to play with death.

Please read this thread. The dehumanising and dangerous rhetoric that is used to demonise people seeking sanctuary, esp over the last few days, is heartbreaking. We want to live in a country of welcome, safety and hope for all

Refugees are people like me and you. Remember the loo paper emergency? Remember the fear of food shortages? Remember that you were separated from your loved ones for weeks and months? Now these people are fleeing unimaginably worst circumstances. They need our protection.
