Why this is important

An international group of citizens in Parma (Italy) start up the Committee for the nomination to the Nobel Peace Prize for 2018 "THE RIGHTEOUS OF THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA ‐ FOR THE HUMANITARIAN MARINE RESCUE OF MIGRANTS", for the joint candidature of 66 subjects from 19 different nations: non‐governmental organizations and other worthy persons, which have continuously activated, during the “Refugees crisis”, maritime rescue means along the migratory routes of the Central Mediterranean Sea and the Aegean Sea, to provide a humanitarian response to the protection of the lives of migrants, motivated by the universal principle that every person in danger at sea must be rescued and treated with dignity.

The Committee intends to honor the humanitarian effort of a network of solidarity made up of people who have not hesitated to help and save thousands of refugees and who have been in the last few years providing relief and first reception in often prohibitive sea conditions: fishermen, volunteers, artists, seamen, doctors, lifeguards, nurses, pilots, shipmasters, rescuers have opened their hearts to save refugee children, men and women fleeing war and terror. People who do not let the sea decide on the fate of the refugees. People who know they are running a risk but prefer to risk rather than living with the weight of remorse for being indifferent. Courageous souls who do all this just because "it's the right thing to do", with extraordinary inner strength and resilience.

These are the "THE RIGHTEOUS OF THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA", men and women who have chosen which part of the Story to stay, who have chosen to go to sea with the uninterested goal of saving as many lives as possible.

As a recognition for the work that has been actively carried out in maritime research, rescue and assistance operations, with which refugees have long been able to find effective rescue facilities with international crews, rescuers, doctors and volunteers who have welcomed them in the name of peace and conducted in a safe harbor, under the coordination of the competent authorities, the Committee proposes for 2018 the joint nomination to the Nobel Peace Prize of the following NGOs and meritorious subjects:
