45th Session of the PPT on Human Rights of Migrants and Refugee Peoples
The Berlin hearing of the 45th session of the Permanent Peoples Tribunal on the rights of refugees and migrants took place on October 23-25, 2020. The Permanent Peoples' Tribunal (PPT) looks back on a long history since the first tribunals against human rights violations in the Vietnam War in the 1970s. The 45th session of the PPT is dedicated to human rights violations against refugees and migrants in Europe and is entitled "Violations with Impunity of the Human Rights of Migrant and Refugee Peoples". We were part of the alliance to organize the tribunal, this time focusing on the right to health for migrants and refugees. In the context of the 45th session of the PPT, six hearings have already taken place in different European cities since 2017. borderline-europe Sicily has also already played a major role in the organization and implementation of the 2017 meeting in Palermo, which focused on EU border policy in the Mediterranean, the externalization of European borders and the criminalization of solidarity.
