Care4Calais Statement on the Europe’s Migration Policies

“We do not believe that forcibly returning people to unsafe zones can ever be a morally acceptable policy. Seeing the suffering and uncertainty of those trapped in Greece does little to recommend this deal as a civilised option.

Over the last year we have watched desperate and vulnerable people pushed to take ever more dangerous routes across the Balkans. The stories we hear of children being beaten by the police, and of women being robbed and subjected to violence, do not indicate that current policies are in any way effective.

Europe’s policies on migration are based on a belief in ‘pull factors’, when it is so much more important to consider the horrific trials and tribulations that refugees are fleeing from.

Care4Calais would firmly oppose any similar deal between Italy and Libya. Europe has a moral responsibility to do better for those who need us the most.” – Sue Jex, Care4Calais
