EU: Stop the drownings of Refugees – Avaaz Petition

“To EU Heads of State and Ministers, the President and Commissioners of the European Commission, and all global leaders:

We call on you to urgently lead the world to a humane 21st century refugee policy that saves lives and protects people fleeing war and hunger. This means drastically increasing resettlement and relocation of refugees in a way that reunites families and shares responsibility across Europe, and the world; giving financial and technical support to countries on the frontline of the crisis; and ensuring security actions do not put those seeking sanctuary at risk. The magnitude of this crisis requires united, urgent and massive humanitarian action.”
