REFUGEES WELCOME TO THE ISLE OF MAN
We, the undersigned, call upon the Isle of Man Government to reconsider offering to take a fair share of Syrian refugees fleeing war and persecution through the UK's Syrian Vulnerable Person's Resettlement Scheme. This would mean a commitment of approximately 25 refugees coming to live here by 2020. (There are individuals and companies on the Island who have offered enough housing, resources & support services for far more than the 25 refugees we are asking for. This is an opportunity for the Isle of Man to show that, as a mature and responsible society, we are willing to offer sanctuary to innocent victims of war and persecution.) PETITION IS NOW CLOSED - Together with paper signatures we have over 1000 supporters and we will be handing in the petition early in 2017. THANK YOU !
