In search of a digni­fied life thousands of refu­gees and migrants die at the bor­ders of Euro­pe.

In search of a digni­fied life thousands of refu­gees and migrants die at the bor­ders of Euro­pe. The­se are peop­le who are dri­ven from their home­lands by war, per­se­cu­ti­on, vio­lence and mise­ra­ble living con­di­ti­ons. In order to escape they squee­ze into tiny boats, hide in lor­ries, sleep in very basic camp­si­tes or in front of high secu­ri­ty bor­der con­trols. Drow­ning, suf­fo­ca­ti­on or dying of thirst are fre­quent occur­ren­ces. Many die of exhaus­ti­on.

Ger­ma­ny and other EU sta­tes react towards tho­se see­king pro­tec­tion at its bor­ders with armed resis­tan­ce and deter­rence.

We demand:

  • Stop the death­trap at the EU bor­ders! FRONTEX activi­ties which vio­la­te human rights must cea­se!
  • Human life must be saved. If someo­ne is in dan­ger of drow­ning befo­re our eyes, we must help.
  • Refu­gees must be pro­tec­ted. Access to fair asyl­um pro­ce­du­res in Euro­pe must be gua­ran­te­ed. The Gene­va Refu­gee Con­ven­ti­on and the European Con­ven­ti­on on Human Rights must be upheld.
