Article with numerous links to on-line migrants' stories:

http://globalvoicesonline.org/2009/08/06/united-kingdom-asylum-seekers-telling-their-stories/

"More and more refugee organizations are using online social media and asylum seekers' own words in their advocacy work and outreach to donors. With these stories they are able to bypass, and/or complement their work with traditional media, and provide information directly to donors and advocacy groups."

& edited version:

http://www.journalism.co.uk/6/articles/535384.php

"It's not easy getting nuanced and accurate refugee and asylum accounts to the attention of the British public. Even if a publication or broadcaster runs one, it could end up severely edited - or worse, distorted - in the final version."
