Leaving people to die on the Mediterranean Sea in order to seal off Europe and fight for more political power, is an unbearable and inhumane measure of current EU policies. Migration is and always has been part of our society! Instead of closing borders, we need an open-minded Europe with cities that show their solidarity by establishing safe havens for people on the move.
Seebrücke is an international organization, empowered by many alliances and civil-society supporters. We stand in solidarity with all people on the move and demand from German as well as European policymakers to immediately ensure safe escape routes, the decriminalization of civil sea rescue and a humane reception of all people who have had to flee or are still on the run. We are working towards a Europe, that moves away from deportation and isolation and towards freedom of movement for ALL!
