Borders of Fear Meetup: No One Excluded
National governments try to stop migration by all means, often illegally pushing back people migrating and seeking refuge, and criminalising solidarity. They choose not to address the root causes of conflicts and inequalities, which force people to flee and cross borders. To disrupt this narrative, the medical NGO EMERGENCY presents its work in war-torn areas and its projects based on a culture of peace, solidarity and respect for human rights. The meetup also features Mediterranea from the initiative From the Sea to the City, through which several organisations joined forces to demand a new European human-right based migration policy, in which municipalities and civil society are central actors.
