Educate people over refugees

Have your say

Dear Star, Can you do two things for us?

n Stop referring to refugees as “migrants”.

n Stop posting stories or letters about refugees to deliberately cause a reaction.

All you are doing is bringing out the worst in normally civilised people and the even worst of the worst in the fascist, “no surrender” mob.

If you must say anything, report accurately and intelligently on what is happening and why, explaining the real process of both immigration and treatment of refugees.

Explain why we do it and our responsibilities under the Geneva Convention and UN Charter.

Stop winding people up who know no better and start educating to engender understanding.

You don’t have to be lazy and pander to the lowest common denominator.
