How about writing to your MP?!

Last month we had a talk from Robert Spooner about the situation for asylum seekers in the UK. Have a look at this video. Its great and why not write to your MP?

Amnesty International UK has produced an excellent 11-minute film, which lucidly tells of the urgency for action to end the destitution of people refused asylum. It is a really excellent resource to help convince your MP of the need for change. There are a few things we'd like you to do:
1. Watch the film at or a trailer on
2. Invite your MP to watch it at a special Parliamentary Preview event on 4 December. To help you do this we have a special Voice Your Views webpage . It only takes a few steps to prepare the letter text and even finds out whom your MP is.
3. Organise a screening in your area. For a copy of the DVD email with your postal address.
