Governments of the European Union
Thousands of refugees have died trying to enter the EU (between January and August 2015 some 2,500 refugees are thought to have died in the Mediterranean according to UNHCR) fleeing from war. There is a moral and legal obligation to provide shelter to refugees and ensure that no more refugees have to die during their flight.
As EU citizens we demand from the governments of the EU member states to unconditionally ensure safe and legal entry for all refugees and undertake every possible measure to ensure that no further lives are lost due to restrictive border policies at the external borders of the EU.
