EU governments are struggling to handle the challenges posed by migration without destroying European values: respect for human rights, dignity and the rule of law. This is not the Europe we want! This is why we have joined forces to launch the very first European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) to reclaim a #WelcomingEurope! This initiative was launched in France on 12 April, and then in Italy on 19 April. The campaign will be deployed in many other European countries with the aim of collecting 1 million signatures in at least seven EU Member States within a year.
By signing the petition, we can all play a role in ensuring our governments pursue bold policies that save lives, help migrants and refugees to integrate and support EU citizens who provide assistance to those in need.
