A shocking and inhumane practice

2000 children are detained in the UK every year, without limit. For simply trying to claim asylum, some are separated from their families for days on end.

The UK is the only country in Europe with this horrible policy. I was alerted to this by Henry Porter's scathing piece in today's Observer.

Please sign this petition to Number 10 to try and raise the pressure against this disgusting policy. It only takes a minute.
