We delivered a talk to a Geography, Development and Inequality course (of 130 students) in Manchester University on 17 March. We talked about what life was like in Syria and how it is now for those who have made it to the UK as refugees. We would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Jennifer O’Brien for extending this invitation to us.
We signed an open letter to MP’s written by Manchester University Student Union on 2 December saying that we hoped that they would vote against the decision to authorise UK military airstrikes in Syria. The letter went on to say that there is a high risk of innocent civilians dying in these airstrikes, worsening the refugee crisis.
