Description:
For the last several years, African and European organisations alike have been challenging governments about the number of deaths occurring at the borders of the European Union, but in vain. By participating in the solidarity flotilla in the Mediterranean, we want:    - To encourage the media and politicians to denounce the tragedy which is taking place in the Strait of Sicily - To accuse those working at sea (border guards, Frontex, NATO) who are guilty of failing to assist migrants in difficulties and of refouling asylum seekers, against the provisions of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and the Geneva Convention - To gather statements and strengthen complaints made to international authorities - To exercise our right of access to the maritime regions in which these shipwrecks are taking place and to the centres in which migrants arriving in Italy are detained. - To strengthen Euro-African solidarity with regard to migration and the defence of migrant rights
