Urge your MP to sign EDM on African Refugees in Israel

Please contact your MP and ask them to sign a new Early Day Motion about the treatment of African refugees in Israel.

The text of the EDM is: “That this House condemns the abysmally low proportion of non-Jewish, African asylum seekers who have been granted refugee status in Israel; notes with concern that less than one per cent of applications by African refugees are successful; further notes that Israel’s closest neighbours, Jordan and Lebanon, have each accepted millions of refugees fleeing Syria; commends the work of Hotline for Refugees and Migrants Israel, and the Assaf Aid Organization for Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Israel in promoting African refugee rights in Israel; and calls on the Government to demand immediate action from the Israeli government to behave in line with international legal norms and obligations.”

A full list of MPs who have signed already can be seen here.
