Are You Happy With That?

by People Seeking Sanctuary

Writers from 30 countries, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, writing in Wales now. Some have leave to remain. Some are waiting for the Home Office decision. Some have been condemned to destitution: surviving with no support, in terror of being detained or deported. Men, women, children, all with extraordinary stories and powerful talents. Are you happy with the world conflicts which displace millions of people each year? Happy with Britain’s role in these conflicts? Happy with the way we treat the few refugees who reach our shores? Be moved. Be surprised. Be provoked. Get involved.
