We strongly condemn the ongoing fighting in Sudan t sit for dialogue that leads to a civilianled government.
As the fighting continues in Sudan, many people fled their homes to other cities, estates and countries. The situation will increase the number of people at sea fleeing the conflicts in Sudan and many others fleeing persecution, oppression and mandatory military service from other countries.
We call on the European Union countries to stand by people fleeing these conflicts, allow freedom of movement, and provide assistance to those in distress at sea to reach a safer place.
We call on Europe and theUK to stop criminalising asylum seekers who arrive on its shores by boat and to abolish laws that help to deport or pull them back from where they are escaping.
Together with the members of the Sudanese diaspora in Europe who undersigned the petition below:
“We call on the EU, European lawmakers, and European civil society, including the Red Cross, to close all loopholes of support to the war in Sudan, and put their full weight behind an immediate end to the fighting. We call for the full enforcement of the provisions of the Geneva Convention, including the immediate establishment of humanitarian corridors and safe routes within and out of the fighting zones”.
