Commemoration of the deceased along European external borders

Ob in der Wüste, auf dem Meer, oder an Zäunen, jedes Jahr sterben tausende Menschen an Europas Außengrenzen auf der Suche nach menschenwürdigen Lebensbedingungen. Am 15. Oktober 2019 versammelten wir uns zusammen mit Corasol und allen Interessierten vor dem Brandenburger Tor und gedachten wie jedes Jahr all denen, die ihr Leben verlieren mussten, weil Europa den Schutz der eigenen Grenzen über den Schutz von Menschenleben stellt.

Commemoration of the deceased along European external borders

Whether in the desert, on the sea, or along fences, thousands of people die every year on Europe's external borders in search for a life in human dignity. On 15 October 2019 we gathered together with Corasol and all interested people in front of the Brandenburger Tor to commemorate, as every year, all those who lost their lives because Europe puts the protection of its own borders above the protection of human lives.

Common demands on meeting of EU interior ministers in Luxembourg

With the present document, the signing NGOs involved in search-and-rescue activities in the Mediterranean Sea, jointly share the following considerations and recommendations to the Justice and Home Affairs Ministers reuniting in Luxembourg on 08 October 2019 to follow up to the mini-summit of 23 September held in Malta. The question of a fair and human needs-based relocation mechanism remains unresolved. Establishing a relocation mechanism for people rescued at sea by private ships is secondary to the wider problem of the ongoing severe violations of international human rights law occurring in the Mediterranean area against people who migrate. These violations are above all put in place through the cooperation of the EU Member States with third countries such as Libya, a country afflicted by a civil war, in which the so-called authorities are in strict connection with traffickers of human beings, and tortures and inhuman and degrading treatments are usually perpetrated against foreigners, as several Institutional reports denounced in details in last years. We reaffirm that the opening of legal entry channels from third countries, and humanitarian corridors from countries at war, constitutes the only real way to fight and dismantle smuggler networks in the Central Mediterranean.
