I love this idea. I cannot imagine what it must be like to walk for hundreds of miles to get to a place of safety. This is a different sort of a walk but it raises consciouness, especially combined with the refugee stories. Furthermore in a week where we have seen images of a father and child drowned and heard about the person who fell from the undercarriage of a Kenyan plane, we need to do whatever we can to show that this country cares.

Such a great way to raise awareness about the terrible conditions imposed upon families fleeing violence and terror. I'm ashamed to be british sometimes and can only thank those people participating in the 28 tales for 28 days project for doing the right thing on our behalf.

28 tales for 28 days has proved itself a powerful and essential way of getting real peoples' stories out to a bigger audience. It deserves wide support

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 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.

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