Ignore the hostile headlines which dehumanise refugees and listen to their tales. Their stories say enough. We should not have indefinite detention. Good luck.
I love the dedication & love that is making all this happen for all who is seeking social justice..You will have my support always x x
What a wonderful initiative. I wish you - us - every success in changing the world, tale by tale, law by law.
I am the foster carer of an unaccompanied asylum seeking minor. I believe that telling the stories of individual people will do more to educate people than lecturing on human rights or similar. I am optimist and believe in the ability of the human being to be touched by the experiences of others and the innate urge to want to help and ease suffering.
I feel deeply for those in indefinite detention And I love walking so hope that some of those who have been detained can join next year’s walk
I've known many young asylum seekers who have been left in limbo by the Home Office until the court of appeal has granted them the safety that comes with being recognised as a refugee. This has included young adults wrongly detained by the Home Office until they were freed when scrutinised by the courts. Very few people who are detained have their cases looked at by the courts. The UK is the only country in Europe that detains asylum seekers without a time limit even though they are not criminals. This policy, which is conducted in our name, causes terrible harm to real people. We must each do all that we can to make it come to an end. Making this film is a step toward this.
Need to keep up the pressure especially now Home Secretary says he will review immigration detention. Congratulations to all involved in Refugee Tales for yet another wonderful (but still needed, disgracefully) walk.
Humanity, thy name is Mohammed, Abdul, Said, Maryam, John, Mary, Fatima, Felix, Anna, Jonas, Ibrahim, Benjamin, Harriet ....... no barriers between us please! My country is every country and my life is a precious treasure, just as is yours, his, hers, theirs....
St John’s has been enriched by one of the subjects of the Tales who is much loved - and has been damaged by the UK’s detention policy (without time limit) along with several of his friends. It’s time for a limit - and welcome and hope.
It is really important to keep the plight of refuges in the spotlight. We are all human and the more we share the reasons why people end up In these situations and how they are treated, hopefully the more we can break down the perception that they are not us. We are all human. What if the refugee was you?
The Gatwick Detainees Welfare Group is not only doing a vital job highlighting the injustice of indefinite detention - with the Refugee Tales project they are doing it with creativity and inspiration.
Totally moved by the stories of refugees. Totally ashamed that those detention practices happen in our country in our name. Totally loved hosting the Day 4 walk and performance. And totally humbled by the humanity and hope of people who have been treated appallingly badly, yet rebuilt lives and have love for others.

Let's make '28 Tales for 28 Days' happen
