Rwanda Democratic Green Party Disagrees with UK-Rwanda Migration deal

The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda supports welcoming refugees who have chosen Rwanda as their first destination but not those who chose to go to the UK or other European countries.

 We think that rich countries including the UK should not shift their international obligation to receive refugees and transfer them to third countries, just because they have the money to influence and enforce their will.

 Rwanda has already a high population density in Africa and already land is not sufficient for us all, with a lot of land conflicts and competition for the natural resources.
