RRW weekly round-up for the week ending December 6

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 7, 2014

Didn’t get around to the usual weekly summary last week (the last week of November) but am excited to report that November 2014 is our top month ever in terms of the number of visitors arriving every day!   (RRW was launched in July 2007)

This past week’s top three posts were (our daily top posts are in the right had side bar):

1)  Member of the Dutch Parliament calls for mosques to be banished from the Netherlands

2)  Why are we taking refugees from South Africa?

3)  Our fact sheet

Top ten countries this week (excluding the US) are as follows in descending order:

UK

Australia

Canada

South Africa

Germany

France

Sweden

Netherlands

India

Thailand

For new readers!

Since we get new readers every day, here is my usual spiel.

This is where you can find information if you are arriving here at RRW for the first time (in addition to the fact sheet linked above). We have over 6,000 posts.

*  See our categories (left hand sidebar)

*  See the tag clouds (right hand sidebar)

*  Also, we have a great search function and since neither the categories nor the tags go all the way back to our first posts seven years ago, use the search window with a few key words.  You might want to first try your city, state, or country to see what we have reported from there over the years.

By the way, our category entitled ‘where to find information’ is filled with reports and documents, but with 308 posts archived there, it is pretty unwieldy now.

Past weekly roundups can be found in our category entitled ‘blogging.’

If you wish to be notified when we post, consider subscribing or follow us on twitter (@refugeewatcher) or facebook (RefugeeInfoResource).  ‘Like us’ on facebook!

And apologies to all who e-mail and comment, sorry if I don’t respond much, there are just not enough hours in my day!

It occurs to me that I do see everyone’s comments to posts because we do screen them (no foul language, no threats), so if you have something you want me to see, I don’t at all mind if you send the link as a comment to a post, even if it’s off-topic.

To regular readers, thank you for your continued concern for this very important issue.

  1. You know it occurs to me – have you thought about doing a book?

      I have. You know there is not one book on this topic that I am aware of even on the advocacy side of the whole refugee issue. Not sure I have the staying power for it because I would miss getting the news out on a daily basis. I am definitely open to helping with the research if there is a writer out there!
