We are calling on EU leaders to stop the spiraling human cost of the fortress they are building.
Ask EU leaders to protect lives and rights along Europe’s borders. What do we want EU leaders to do?
• Strengthen search and rescue operations in the Mediterranean and the Aegean seas through a joint effort involving all EU member states
• Provide more safe and legal routes to Europe for those fleeing conflict and persecution so they are not forced to take dangerous journeys in the first place; and ensure they have access to international protection when they reach Europe’s borders
• Stop cooperating with countries with poor human rights records to restrict migration flows into the European Union
