Enough is Enough – Evacuate Now
A trans-European video projection following the fires
that ripped through Moria Refugee Camp
#EuropeansForHumanity has joined forces with partners all over Europe and
has started a Wave of Solidarity that is moving 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 after a giant fire that
destroyed Europe’s biggest refugee camp, Moria on 9th September 2020.
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. We cannot tolerate that women and children are beaten by police
and volunteers are chased by fascists.
Journalists and aid workers do not have access to the new camp which is built on a former shooting range,
which is highly toxic. Humans have been starving for days,
do not have access to medical care and legal aid – in the middle of Europe.
Therefore, we kicked off the campaign in Vienna and Berlin before heading to Porto,
Munich and Brussels on Friday 18th September.
After projection our demand to the European Commission and other political buildings,
we went to Strasbourg on the 19th of September.
European Commission, 18th of September 2020
An audio version of our statement was also played in Groningen, Lisbon and Porto yesterday.
Today we are in Hamburg and would like to invite you to see our demand being projected in one of the so called “Safe Ports”, cities that are offering to welcome refugees.
More European cities to follow in the coming days.
Send a message to the press phone for more detailed information and coming locations.
