Every day in Europe, thousands of willing citizens face the risk of being fined, arrested or intimidated because they offer humanitarian assistance to people fleeing persecution.
This is why the Acli support the first European Citizens' Initative to promote a more welcoming Europe and to reclaim the citizens' right to help. Through this direct democracy tool, we can compel the European Commission and Parliament to respond to our demands.
Ask the European Commission to:
Ban the criminalisation of solidarity in member states
Support European citizens who want to offer safety to people fleeing persecution
Guarantee effective access to justice to all victims of exploitation and abuse
Solidarity is not a crime, sign the petition!
