Many Happy Returns for Refugees and IDPs

Sponsored Post

The plight of refugees is widely understood, but this is not necessarily the case for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). These are people who have been forcibly moved from their homes and lands and who have to live in camps in their own country.

Azerbaijan currently has an IDP and refugee population of around 875,000–equating to nearly 10 per cent of the entire population. This means it has one of the highest displaced person populations per capita in the world. These people are the ongoing casualties of the Armenian occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh and the seven surrounding districts, which represent around 20 per cent of Azerbaijani territory. This military occupation has been condemned by the UN.

Please pledge your support for a petition to rename UN World Refugee Day as UN World Refugee and IDP Day and let’s help them return home.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
