Dear Friends and Colleagues
With colleagues I have produced an “Open Letter” to the Prime Minister believing that the mistreatment of asylum seekers to act as a deterrent for those contemplating a sea voyage in the future fails the most basic ethical test.
I’ve attached the letter in the hope that you might choose to sign it.
If you wish to do so you need only reply to that effect to this email message. Also, please indicate how you wish to be described. There are some examples in the attachment.
We obviously need to do this as soon as possible and then hope to attract media (including social media) attention to it.
I look forward to your support.
Many thanks and best wishes
