Enough is Enough – Evacuate Now

A trans-European video projection following the fires
that ripped through Moria Refugee Camp

19/9/2020

 

 

Europeans for Humanity has joined forces with partners all over Europe and has started
a wave of solidarity that will move through Europe in form of a video projection on
politically relevant buildings across our cities. WHY?

13,000 people are homeless, starving and without any support due to a giant fire that
destroyed Europe’s biggest refugee camp, Moria on 9th September 2020. For years,
refugees have been fleeing war, persecution and torture and coming to Europe
hoping to find safety. For months and years, refugees, aid workers, humanitarians and
activists have been warning that one day a catastrophe will happen. And now it has.

We say Enough is Enough – Evacuate Now. The camp cannot be rebuilt and a new
one should not be set up. After years of human rights violations and many deaths, it is
time for Europe to step up and STAND UP for humanity.

Addressing political leaders in Europe we demand:
1) Evacuate Moria and all the refugee camps on the Aegean islands!
2) Relocate refugees to proper housing, in accordance with the International
Declaration of Human Rights and Charts of Fundamental Rights of the European
Union!
3) Ending the illegal pushbacks at the external border of the European Union!
4) Ending the criminalisation of solidarity and humanitarian aid!

We kicked off the campaign in Vienna and Berlin before heading to Porto, Munich
and Brussels yesterday. Friday 18th September marked a significant step in our
campaign with a huge projection at the European Commission in Brussels along with
coverage of this Europe wide movement in some of the largest newspapers in these
host countries. We continue our call for action and renew our demands tonight,
Saturday 19th September with a projection in Strasbourg.

More European cities to follow in the coming days.
Send a message to the press phone for more detailed information.
