Letter urging the EU to put pressure on Denmark on Syrian refugees

Syria is not safe for any refugee to return to and Denmark’s inhumane actions set a dangerous precedent for other European countries that might also try to shun their duty to protect people fleeing persecution. To this day the Assad regime continues to arbitrarily arrest, torture and kill thousands of civilians. By ordering refugees to return to Syria in these extremely violent conditions, or move into prison-like deportation camps, Denmark is tearing families apart and putting hundreds of people at risk of the regime’s crimes against humanity. These are people who have already fled a brutal war and survived unimaginable human rights violations.
