Demo for the evacuation of Moria #LeaveNoOneBehind
May 18, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
In an effort to call for the immediate evacuation of the refuge camp Moria we will hold a silent demonstration on the Dam Square.
Along the edges of Fort Europa it is becoming more and more clear that the border policies of Europe are sacrificing the lives of those who are in desperate need of help. No where is this more clear than Moria, the refugee camp on Lesbos with 24,000 people squeezed into a camp built to house 3,000. Before the COVID-19 crisis this situation was inhumane. Now, it is tantamount to a death sentence.
While we believe that we must respect the rules of staying home in order to protect those most vulnerable we also believe that we cannot stay silent while human lives are being sacrificed. We want to demonstrate in a way that demands our governments, even our local governments take action to protect not just us, but all those who need shelter.
??HERE IS OUR CALL TO ACTION:??
⏳?When? Monday 18th of May 5pm to 6pm, silent demo at 5.30 pm for 10min?⌛️
?Where? in Amsterdam at the Dam Square ?
?How? Bring a pair of shoes, a stencil, chalk, and/or a banner, sign, or flag with a message ( #LeaveNoOneBehind, Burger Inspreek=Noodzaak, #SOSMoria)?
?Then join us for a 10 min silent demonstration to honor those who are not with us?
?Please remember: As always we will respect the corona restrictions. If we want to help vulnerable folks in Moria we must keep in mind vulnerable folks in our direct community.
Please wear a mask and gloves. Come and leave your mark and then join us for the 10 min silent protest at 5.30 pm, standing at least 2 m away from each other!?
If you do not feel comfortable leaving your house, you can still participate by dropping a banner from your window, taking a photo, and sharing it online (or send it to us here on facebook)
