Refugees and Asylum Seekers – Robert Spooner 15th July 2013

Along with Rodrigo, a politician refugee from North Uganda,  who now has asylum in the UK, and an ex Buddhist monk called Sraman from  Bangladesh, who is still seeking asylum after 8 years, Robert explained the increasing difficulties of many refugees wanting asylum in the UK. Both of his colleagues told their story and answered questions which enabled us to have a better idea of their plight.

The presentation put forward a viewpoint on the subject which possibly a lot are not aware of, and it provoked many questions from the floor.
