Stop Europe’s Biggest Shame!

To the European Commission and all EU Heads of State and Government:

As concerned citizens, we welcome the Commission’s Agenda on Migration as a first necessary step towards a strong and humane asylum system across the EU. We call on you to urgently adopt a comprehensive plan that saves lives, ensures the safe and legal resettlement of refugees, and establishes a fair and binding system to receive and assist people seeking refuge in Europe. We oppose any military action that hinders rescue efforts or puts those seeking sanctuary at risk.

Terrified children, fleeing war and hunger, are right now drifting in rusting boats somewhere on the Mediterranean, praying they do not drown.

We could finally throw them a lifeline -- in days, for the first time ever, EU governments will vote on an emergency humanitarian plan to save lives and provide safe refuge.

But shamefully, the Czech Republic, the UK, Poland and Spain are threatening to bring it down. Worse still, some are using us as an excuse, claiming the public doesn’t want to help!

We only have days to counter this narrative with a massive call for compassion -- Avaaz has the chance to deliver our call straight into the leaders summit. Sign up now -- let's show them we won’t accept this death sentence for the desperate.
