This London café is home from home for these Syrians. Abdelaziz - a refugee himself - set up a solidarity movement to defend the rights of Syrians and to help them settle here in the UK. Abdelaziz , Syrian Solidarity Movement UK"We have campaigning since the start of the Syrian revolution. But to be fair, nobody seems to care at all. If the international community stopped Assad's massacres against his own people, people would not leave. Syrians decided to come to Europe just like a few months ago, or a year ago."Rateb smuggled himself into Britain from Calais. For a year, he has been seeking Refugee status in order to bring his family over. His wife and 3 children are in a camp on the Syrian border. Rateb AL KANAAN, Syrian Asylum Seeker""Trad. "They don't have any material or moral support, because I am not there with them. I can't tell you how afraid my wife and children are at night. Every second, I miss them". At this meeting of grassroots activists, Abdeluziz is helping to organise a humanitarian convoy to the migrant camps in Calais. He calls upon the British government to do more. Adbelaziz AL MASHI"To take in 20 000 Syrian refugees by 2020 is simply pitiful. It's nothing, this not a response, this is out of touch. Britain is a permanent member of the Security Council, Britain can do more".A pile of rubble outside the House of Commons, to remind European leaders of the human cost of Syria's war. International NGOs also expect more from EU governments. Caroline ANNING, Save The Children, NGO"When we're talking about the refugee crisis in Europe, Europeans have buried their heads in the sand for far too long, we saw a million people come here last year, including a huge number of unaccompanied children. They are really vulnerable and they're not getting the support that they need". These Syrians may be safe in London but their thoughts are with their friends and family, back home in the war zone.
