Seebrucke/Seabridge – Demonstration against EU refugees policy
On a near daily basis, people are drowning in the Mediterranean.
Although the amount of people attempting to gain entry to Europe via this route has dropped significantly, the number of deaths actually increases due to the European Union turning its back on these refugees and immigrants. In the meanwhile, multiple vessels from NGOs with a voluntary crew of doctors, nurses, and rescue workers are stranded in Malta. European governments are preventing them from saving human lives.
We cannot accept this situation and have therefore set up the Seebrücke / Seabridge movement. We are a broad movement of citizens who are committed to ensuring that rescue actions by civilians at sea remain unpunished. We call on the European Union to establish a rescue program for boat refugees, and to ensure that safe and legal refugee routes to Europe are possible.
Join us and let yourself be heard!
When: Friday August, 10th, 17:00
Where: Dam Square, Amsterdam
