3 SEPT 2018

Today, three years ago, Alan Kurdi was found on the coast in Turkey. The picture of him stirred a slumbering Europe into action. Or so we hoped.

NOTHING HAS CHANGED

Commemorating the death of, UNHCR released it's latest report on the refugee situation today. You can find it here. It shows a decline in the total number of refugees, but a disturbing of alternating peaks is seen in arrivals to Spain, Italy and Greece, respectively. So far in 2018, the number has decreased in Italy, but increased in Spain and Greece. In 2017 and 2016, the situation was partly reversed, making it painfully obvious that when one country closes its borders, the route is merely redirected to another place. The Knocking Project started in 2013. The situation was bad then. If possible it became even worse, but after the sudden attention at the tragic death of Alan, there was a glimmer of hope that the European countries would finally takt the issue seriously. Three years later, it is clear this is not the case.

TO THE EU PARLIAMENT

A functioning international and collaborative approach to EU migration is needed - NOW!

TO THE COUNTRIES OF EUROPE

Each and every one of the EU member states must contribute to a functioning EU migration policy, one which minimizes the dangers to people on the move.

FROM THE KNOCKING PROJECT

The Knocking Project exists to remember the members of parliament that the opinion in their county not only exists of load mouthed national protectionists. We who wish for a humane and fair solution are and allways will be more!
