On the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, PRO ASYL is presenting a petition to the European Parliament which is addressing the dying of thousands at our outer borders. More than 1500 documented cases of deaths at the doors of Europe over the last 12 months illustrate a serious human rights record.

On the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, PRO ASYL is presenting a petition to the European Parliament which is addressing the dying of thousands at our outer borders.

More than 1500 documented cases of deaths at the doors of Europe over the last 12 months illustrate a serious human rights record.

Nearly 30.000 citizens, predominantly from Germany, and human rights organisation from 17 European countries are supporting the petition and are appealing to the European Parliament not to acquiesce in the creation and tolerance of ‘human rights free zones’ at the borders of the EU.  

The campaign “Stop the deathtrap” continues. Please join us in signing the petition. On the campaign-webpage: www.stop-the-deathtrap.eu you can sign online.
