Syrian Refugees welcome in BANES

RefugeesUs BAC's1

We joined Bath UCU, 38 Degrees Bath, Bath Greens, Bath Labour, Bath Amnesty, other groups & locals, to tell the council they aren’t doing enough to help the Syrian people fleeing war. Petitions were signed, money was collected & we had great conversations.
In July, a motion was put to Council to get BANES to support people fleeing war but it was voted down by the ruling Conservatives. Last night,we heard a young Syrian Student (here at Bath Uni) talk about how important it is that BANES does do more to support Syrians in Bath. Councillor Joe Rayment (Bath Labour) use a rule to Council, to get them to discuss the situation further. We didn’t get an answer  but we have been assured that we will be kept informed,as to what BANES will do to support them.
