Entry: what implies being a refugee?


Seguimos trabajando writigs de seguidores de la web. Esta vez se trata de una entry: what implies being a refugee? a publicar en un blog. Hoy en día, con el auge de la tecnología, es habitual encontrar en los exámenes oficiales de la EOI este tipo de writing, entry, que no es más que un artículo en una página web o blog. Damos las gracias a Laura, que ha puesto su confianza en la Web del Inglés, para preparar su examen de expresión escrita de EOI, nivel C1. Vamos allá! 🙂

Nowadays, the word refugee has spread worldwide. This is mainly due to the fact that Syria is in war. But, what does this term means?

According to wikipedia.com, a refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his o her their country because of persecution, war or violence. A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. Most likely, they cannot return home or are afraid to do so.

Bearing this in mind, anyone can be a refugee so, why have these unfortunate people to been labelled? In fact, not only do Syrian people need asylum but people who want to earn for a living also have to look for asylum in other another country with more possibilities.  In this case, wouldn’t they be refugees? Even more, if we think about the Spanish Civil War, were the rRepublicans refugees?

Apart from this, it is regrettable that countries boarders point who is from one place or another. Sadly, the displaced people are not allowed to enter a city since they are not its dwellers. In addition to this, the ones who are in refugee camps are set apart as if they were plague victims. As I see it, European countries are not helping them so much. Likewise, there had  been was a country which drove them out from its lands by throwing a harmful gas.

To make a long story short, it is extremely important that we think of refugees as human beings. Thus, it is crucial to put ourselves into asylum seekers’ shoes because our world is living through a great deal of social disaster in different fields: political, financial, religious and so forth. Thereby, it’s high time that everybody learnt to empathize since not all everything is a bed of roses. The more we help selflessly, the more we will receive.
