„Alarm Phone“: Notrufnummer gegen das Sterbenlassen auf See

Am 11. Oktober 2013 ertranken 260 Flüchtlinge vor Lampedusa. Alle hätten gerettet werden können, wenn die Behörden sofort die Rettung veranlasst hätten. Was wäre gewesen, wenn die Flüchtlinge eine Notrufnummer gehabt hätten, über die AktivistInnen Druck auf die Behörden hätten ausüben können? Watch the Med hat jetzt ein „Alarm Phone“ für Boat People eingerichtet.

Nace el +33 486 517 161, una línea de voluntarios para atender a migrantes en peligro en el Mediterráneo

Letter from Lampedusa


„[…] Around 9 A.M. on October 3rd, Father Mussie Zerai’s telephone began to ring repeatedly. Outside his apartment at the Catholic diocese in Fribourg, Switzerland, the Alps rose above the red-tiled roofs and the Gothic cathedral of the medieval town. The phone calls came from Sweden, Norway, Eritrea, Italy, Sudan, and Lampedusa. A boat travelling from Libya had caught fire and sunk. At least a hundred and eleven people were dead and more than two hundred were missing. It was depressingly familiar news—in the past twenty years, more than twenty thousand immigrants have died on their way to Europe.

Alarm Phone: Aktivitäten Hamburg

Just a short report from Hamburg

Yesterday and today are “Lampedusa Emancipation Days” in Hamburg, starting with a peace march from the city center to the university and a theater play “The Lampeduzans” yesterday evening and going on with exhibitions, a debate “War – Migration – Democracy” and concert today. We mentioned the alarm phone in a short speech and distributed the flyers to migrants and supporters with interested reactions.

We told activists that we still need support for the shifts.
