Not what we need!
Help create a social media storm to let the EU Commission know its Migration Pact is not the radical change that we need. Here is what you can do:
1: pick a text and post it with an image or video for Instagram, Facebook or Twitter from our social media pack, and start sharing.
2: Ask your friends, family and colleagues to share and sign the petition:
3: Get informed about the asylum and migration pact:
Enough is Enough!
Joining together with more than 200 organizations we demand European leaders to act.
The fire in Moria, and the treatment of people since then, highlights again, the many failures of the European migration policies. It shows that human rights are no longer valid for everyone and that not every human life matters to the politicians of Europe.
At the same time, we are seeing an increasing amount of solidarity within Europe. Many people are protesting for change again since the fire in the whole of Europe and are demanding action, now! We need to join together to make this happen!
We receive a lot of questions regarding donations. Many thanks!
As we still need some time to find our way in this chaos, we don’t feel comfortable to start a special fundraiser. For anyone who’d like to make a donation right now, we suggest medical NGOs specifically: Medical Volunteers International (medical-volunteers.org) and Médecins Sans Frontières (www.msf.org ).
Legal aid organizations are already overwhelmed, however they will need even more support now that the asylum process is on hold. It will be complete chaos once the asylum office reopens and resumes operation. We suggest specifically HIAS, Legal Centre Lesvos (https://www.hias.org/where/greece ), and Fenix Humanitarian Legal Aid (www.fenixaid.org ).
PIKPA is an open, self-organised refugee camp in Mytilene, Lesvos. It is one of the few dignified accommodations left for refugees in very vulnerable situations including unaccompanied minors. Currently, it holds more than 100 people. The greek government wants to close it, so there is no alternative left to terrible facilities.
