WE DECLARE A STATE OF EMERGENCY OF HUMANITY AND GO ON THE STREET ON JULY 6TH!
Carola Rackete, the captain of the Sea Watch, declared a state of emergency on board of the Sea-Watch 3 and after being blocked for more than two weeks she went on her own into Italian waters. Carola Rackete did the only right thing: she saved lives, shows attitude and defends human rights. We have to do the same! We call for nationwide demonstrations for the rights of refugees and #freecarola! on July 6.
Currently, every sixth person drowns during the escape attempt over the Mediterranean Sea. At the same time, sea rescuers are being punished for saving human lives: Italian authorities arrested Captain Carola Rackete on the night of docking and confiscated the “Sea Watch 3”.
We say: Humanity is attacked, it is time to act. We declare a state of Emergency of Humanity!
