The book tells the story of RAMFEL Refugee Refuseniks and the extraordinary 25 year journey, defying the odds. This is a story about a small determined organisation and those that it seeks to represent, not only defying the odds, but also becoming refuseniks opposed to the loss of our core British value of tolerance.

RAMFEL Refugee Refuseniks has been compiled  from oral histories collected from over fifteen people involved in the development, establishment and day to day management of RAMFEL.

RAMFEL Refugee Refuseniks is available for download here. Please click on the PDF icon for a digital copy of the book
