On Monday, 17 June 2019 from 17:00 to 17:30 there will be a vigil on the Jesuitenplatz with the theme “Rescue at sea is right and duty”.

An initiative group in cooperation with the working group “Ecumenism in the City” is calling for this vigil. After a short greeting and information, the drowned people of the past year are silently remembered this evening.

In addition at an information table there is the possibility to address letters to politicians with the demand to establish more “safe harbours” and to actively work for the “decriminalisation of the sea rescue” and for the “humane reception of the rescued refugees”.

Another vigil is planned this year for Monday 9 September 2019 from 17:00 to 17:30 on Jesuitenplatz.
