Thousands petition UK government to accept more refugees

Tens of thousands of British people petitioned their government to do its part to help an unprecedented influx of refugees fleeing war and violence to safety in Europe on Wednesday. A parliamentary petition calling on the conservative government of Prime Minister David Cameron to accept more asylum seekers gained over 40,000 signatures after a photo of a drowned child on a beach in Turkey went viral. The government is obliged to respond as the petition with over 10,000 signatures, and if it reaches 100,000 the issue will be considered for debate in parliament.
