Syrian war refugees found ‘resilient’ enough to be homeless by London housing authorities

UK Solidarity with refugees rally Mar 30 2018

Muhamed & Rouzeh Shouesh, a Syrian refugee couple in the UK living on state benefits with two college-age kids, were evicted & made homeless after they were told by London council housing authorities that they are “resilient” enough to deal with homelessness. Can the housing authorities tell us how they quantify resilience, especially the kind needed for war refugees who move to a foreign country where they’re unable to earn a living & then learn their lives have no value & they are forced to live outside in the rainy, cold climate of England? This is when you kinda wish that ‘eye for an eye’ revenge thing were a fully operative legal option which would take its revenge on the housing officials.
