On a near daily basis, refugees and other migrants are drowning in the Mediterranean. Although the number of people attempting to reach Europe by crossing the sea has dropped significantly, the number of border-deaths has increased. The European Union turns its back on these people. Meanwhile, multiple vessels from NGOs with voluntary crews of doctors, nurses, and rescue workers are stranded in Malta. European governments are preventing them from saving lives.
On Sunday the 5th of August, you are invited to join us in the NieuwLand for a banner-making day. We will make banners and signs for a demonstration that will take place on Friday the 10th of August, Dam Square: against the EU’s border policies, for creating #safepassage, for freedom of movement, for saving lives. During this demonstration we will give a colorful and clear message!
Materials will be available, although you are of course very welcome
to bring some yourself! The colors that will be used are orange
(life-vest SOS-color), black and white.
