Compassion, not politics

I know I said I was having a break from the blog but I keep coming across things I want to share with you.

On Monday, the French authorities are going to start demolishing part of the Calais Jungle. There are over 5000 refugees and only 1500 places for them to move to.

How can this be? How can any of it be?

100 plus actors and writers and others, led by Jude Law, have written an open letter to David Cameron to urge him to rescue the hundreds of unaccompanied children and teenagers there, by bringing to the UK ones who have family connections here, and by persuading the French authorities to look after the ones who don't. 

I have signed the open letter, and if you would like to sign it as well, follow this link
And please share the link on Facebook or Twitter or both. It's urgent.

If you want more information about what's going on, follow the same link and you'll find more details.
