Dear Rishi Sunak and Suella Braverman, We stand with people seeking sanctuary. Signed, Students, academics and university staff across the UK

12 July 2023

Right now, this government is attempting to ban most people from seeking asylum in the UK. Students, academics and university staff across the UK are taking a stand.

Be it the lecturer forced to flee the Taliban, the young woman attacked for defending her rights in Iran, or the student who fled human rights abuses and conscription in Eritrea – under this Bill, people who come to the UK hoping to find sanctuary will be punished and prevented from exercising their fundamental right to seek protection.

Act now

We know that this legislation does not reflect the views of thousands of students across the country who volunteer and campaign as part of the STAR network, and the staff that support us. We’ve worked with our friends at City of Sanctuary, SolidariTee and the VOICES Network so that you can raise your voice against the Illegal Migration Bill.

Help us spread the word

We’ll be handing in the petition to Downing Street on Tuesday, and we need your help to reach as many people as possible before then.


Thank you for taking action.
