There’s only a couple of weeks left in the Europe Act Now Campaign, which urges the European Parliament to take action to assist the significant number of refugees arriving to the region from Syria.

Over 10,000 people have already signed the petition and thousands more have “added their voice” by taking direct quotes from refugee testimonies and tweeting them from their own account, using #HelpSyriasRefugees. 

The campaign have just released their latest testimony, and in this one (featured below) Osama and Zaina discuss their first hand experiences of immigration detention in Greece.


If you would like to take part, suggested tweets are provided below for you to share.

We hadn’t done anything but the smuggler was free outside and we the victims were jailed #HelpSyriasRefugees

It was the first time I ever saw a prison. My bed was made of stone blocks.I didn’t deserve this #HelpSyriasRefugees

In Syria, I was afraid of the war. In Greece, I’m afraid of Golden Dawn, the police & being detained #HelpSyriasRefugees
