Throughout the world, refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants are being treated in cruel and illegal ways. Some European states are systematically violating the rights of people attempting to escape from persecution, armed conflict, disasters, and deprivation. At Europe’s borders, such people are confronted with the constant threat of destitution, detention, exploitation, and physical violence. In the worst cases, their lives have been lost, both at sea and on land.

This collective campaign involves an ever-growing number of civil society organisations from fourteen European nations who say such abuses must stop! 

We call on all state authorities to respect fundamental human rights, and act with the humanity that all should demonstrate when interacting with their fellow human beings, and especially so in situations of distress.  

At the collective campaign launch, we will set out our SEVEN Collective Demands to be presented to all European governments and other responsible intergovernmental organisations. These can be read using the link below.

Donations are welcome to support the deployment of the collective campaign and its development overtime. THANK YOU
