Send an Urgent Message to Airlines: Don't Fly Refugees to Rwanda
Send a message to airlines: if you profit from refugees’ pain, you’ll be held to account.
When we come together, we WIN. Privilege Style - the airline whose plane was ready to fly to Rwanda in June - has told us they WILL NOT fly any refugees to Rwanda.
Now it's up to us to use this victory to send a message to the whole airline industry: if you try to profit from refugees' pain, you're risking your public image and profits.
Sign the open letter to other airlines.
Dear HiFly, Iberojet,
We write to you, in support of torture survivors, with thousands of people in the UK behind us.
The UK government is trying to send refugees who have come to the UK seeking sanctuary on forced flights to Rwanda.
We even heard that torture survivors were given notice by the UK government that they would be sent to Rwanda.
After we spoke out, many airlines announced they will not run the forced flights - first Titan and Airtanker.
Now Privilege Style - who had been hired by the government in June to fly the first flight - announced it will not take part.
The scheme has been condemned by religious leaders, celebrities - and even the King of England.
The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights has said that forcing vulnerable refugees onto these flights could even breach international law.
We urge you to follow your peers. Publicly pledge never to take part in cruel schemes like this - airlines should bring families together, not tear them apart.
