MORiA Burns – Is this a Final Wake-Up Call?

Communique from the Working Group mobilisation on 45th Session of the Permanent Peoples Tribunal

MORIA burns, again. This documented horror in the heart of Europe, has been denounced from its beginning (2015) by dozens of reports  from human rights, humanitarian and other non-governmental organisations. Almost 20,000 (at peak last February) and at the time of the fire, 13,000 human beings were parked in a prison of mud, rubbish and violence, behind barbed wire. MORIA is a planned limbo, where refugees are being denied their right to asylum, freedom and dignity, unable to perform even the most basic daily activities, such as sleeping, eating or communicating. It was a place where health care and education were denied to 4,000 children – left without dreams; adolescents whom the abnormal rates of suicide attempts should have been an alert of the level of despair in the camp (MSF); women terrorized by daily rapes, lack of hygiene and rampant violence. Hundreds of testimonies revealing the levels of unbearable “non-life” in MORIA, were kept unheard for years. Continue reading

Permanent Peoples Tribunal – Statement (August 2020)

Systemic crimes against the fundamental rights of migrants.
A call to stop the massacre of migrants.

Following the conclusion of its long term investigation and judgment (2017-2019) on the necropolitics of the European Union and of its members States in their policies of rejection and repression of the people of migrants, the Permanent Peoples Tribunal (PPT) had further expressed its dramatic concern in front of what could only be qualified as an ‘ongoing genocide’, requiring a permanent, intensive political and juridical monitoring by the many, diversified though fragmented networks of solidarity.
