Denmark: More people wanting to help refugees

Two of Denmark's largest refugee aid associations are finding that more people are interested in volunteering for the organisations as a way to protest the government's strict immigration policies, reported newspaper Kristeligt Dagblad on Monday.

Before the current Liberal-Conservative government's tightening of asylum procedures in 2001, the Danish Red Cross had about 400 volunteers.

Last year, they had over 900, according to Bo Hansen, who coordinates the organisation's volunteers.

'A lot of volunteers say they need to show that there are other points of view than those that set the political agenda at the moment,' Hansen said.

A similar trend was recently reported in Belgium and the Netherlands.
