We create Safe Harbours.

Since the formation of the movement SEEBRÜCKE in July 2018, many cities, municipalities and communes declared themselves to be in solidarity. They stand against the European isolationist policy, and promise to facilitate more refugees a safe arrival. This means they fulfil at least one of the demands of SEEBRÜCKE.

On the morning of 14 June, the cities of Berlin, Detmold, Freiburg, Flensburg, Greifswald, Hildesheim, Kiel, Krefeld, Marburg, Potsdam, Rostock and Rottenburg am Neckar founded the alliance “Cities of Safe Harbours”. The cities thus confirm their willingness to accept additional refugees from the Mediterranean and are taking the first steps towards implementation. Since then, other cities joined the alliance.

What is behind the “Safe Harbour” concept and what are the differences between the SEEBRÜCKE and the alliance “Cities of Safe Harbours”? In a brief explanation, we give an overview.
