On the third anniversary of Jo Cox’s death, we’re asking senior political figures across the UK to take a break from Brexit to focus on one of the issues that mattered most to her: the humanitarian emergency in Syria.

2,268 / 3,000 actions

One million children are currently trapped in Idlib province, facing Russian and regime airstrikes and horrific barrel bombs. Over 350 civilians have been killed in the last six weeks alone. The silence from British politicians is deafening.

What you can do:

Write to your MP and demand that they do everything they can to protect those trapped in Idlib. You can use our template - it only takes 30 seconds.

On Sunday 16th June 2019, we’re asking leaders and leadership candidates to take a break from Brexit and tell us what they plan to do to protect the estimated one million children trapped in Idlib.

The UK is an incredibly powerful country with a seat at the UN Security Council. But the inaction on Syria is costing the lives of the most vulnerable. That’s why we want the head of every political party, or aspiring leader, to answer one straightforward question: if you are Prime Minister what will you do to save the million children trapped under bombs in Idlib?

If you’re on Twitter, use the hashtag #onemillionkids and ask party leaders and candidates what their plan is to resolve the crisis and protect these children.

Despite our preoccupation with Brexit, the UK remains a compassionate country which understands that the indiscriminate targeting of children is wrong.
