Director statement

“Yet since October 2014, both the political situation and the way what is happening in the Mediterranean Sea is being disseminated have worsened significantly. We note with grave concern that the images of people in boats risking their lives to secure a future for them and their families as a result of European border policy have become part of our everyday life today. We are resigned to seeing these images week after week on television. There is an increasingly feeling of helplessness, which is at best expressed along the lines of ‘We can’t do anything’ and at worst in the sort of fear that has led to arson attacks on refugee housing also being carried out on a weekly basis.”
