Just Action Samos

Free Food Market

Just Action is a registered Greek NGO, that was founded in April 2020 in the midst of the first COVID-19 lockdown. While most of their projects are focused on displaced communities, they acknowledge that many locals struggle as well to make ends meet. They, therefore, support all communities on Samos with their Free Food Market in Vathy. Given the high price of public infrastructure and lack of financiam means of the camp residents, the organisation also started supporting their service users with the provision of bus tickets to the Closed Controlled Access Centre in Zervou.

Border Violence Monitoring Network (BVMN)

Tackling Violence on the Balkan Transit Route

Border Violence Monitoring Network (BVMN) is a horizontal self-organized network of NGOs and associations, which documents and denounces pushbacks, other human rights violations, and broader forms of violence at and within the European borders along the so- called ‘Balkan Route’. Pushbacks have become a recurring practice at the borders, while other violent acts against people on the move proliferate within states’ frontiers. Violence, in the shape of criminalisation, reaches grassroot activists as well. With this project, BVMN aims to tackle this phenomenon of violence, in the attempt to promote safe passage. For this, the Network seeks to consolidate its monitoring activities at the borders, make visible the cases of internal violence, and build an effective joint strategy to address criminalisation.

EU ad hoc relocation: opaque reception and relocation mechanisms leading to asylum rejections in Germany

Thanks to the support of the Stiftungsfonds Zivile Seenotrettung, borderline-europe is able to build on the already published report: "EU ad hoc relocation - A lottery from the sea to the hotspots and back to unsafety" with the follow-up project to focus on lobbying for a perspective to stay in Germany for the redistributed people, most of whom have to fear deportation. Not only the translation of the report into German, but also the intensified networking with local support groups as well as lobbying with political decision makers play a major role. In addition, comparatively low-threshold monitoring of the relocation processes from Greece after the fire in Camp Moria is to be carried out. Finally, multilingual information about the relocation process to Germany for refugees arriving in Italy will be developed.

Free El Hiblu Three Campaign

In Malta, three teenagers (15, 16, and 19 years old) are accused of terrorism. They belonged to a group of refugees who fled from Libya in a rubber boat on the 26th of March 2019, and were rescued by the crew of the cargo ship El Hiblu 1. In consultation with the European military operation EUNAVFORMED, the crew was on the verge of returning the rescued people to Libya. The refugees objected against their forced return and convinced the crew of El Hiblu 1 to hear towards Malta. No one was injured during the protest, nor was there any material damage. Nevertheless, the three teenagers were arrested after their arrival in Malta, where they are currently charged with severe crimes including terrorism. The teenagers face prison sentences ranging from 7 years to life. To draw international attention to the case, a solidarity campaign is organized by different groups, activists and other refugees rescued by the cargo ship El Hiblu 1.

Medical support in Moria

The situation faced by people on the move who have to live on the greek island of Lesvos is becoming increasingly acute. At the same time, medical NGOs working on site lack the means to provide urgently needed support. Therefore, civilfleet-support helps with ordering material and medicine and takes care of the transport to the island.

Alarme Phone Sahara

The community kitchen in Agadez (Niger)

Since July 2020, the team of Alarme Phone Sahara (APS) organizes with great commitment every Saturday a community kitchen for migrants in Agadez/Niger. The network APS is a cooperation between associations, groups and individuals in the Sahel-Sahara region and Europe with headquarter and office in Agadez. The community kitchen is a practical response to a situation in which many migrants and people on the move are stranded in Niger, struggling to survive in very precarious conditions. The global corona crisis has exacerbated this situation even more. For the APS team, the kitchen is an important location to come into exchange with the migrants on site. Moreover, it strengthens solidarity within the different migrant communities.

Medical Volunteers International

Just Help - medical help for people on the move on Lesbos and in Athens

Medical Volunteers International e.V. has been providing medical aid for people on the move with volunteers from all over the world at three locations in Greece since 2016. They are one of the few medical organizations that were continuously active during the peak phase of the Corona pandemic. There are still additional costs due to the pandemic (especially protective clothing and disinfectants). On the other hand, MVI plans to further develop its own work (expansion to other camps, establishment of a placement platform for interpreters from the refugee community). Both areas "Covid 19 response" and "Further development of work on the ground" are improving the situation for people on the move in Greece as a whole.

Mare Liberum

Sebastian K.

In the Aegean Sea, the rights of refugees are increasingly disregarded, as they are repeatedly and with growing brutality pushed back to Turkey by the Hellenic coast guard. The Sea and Rescue Foundation supports Mare Liberum to expand the association's human rights monitoring in the region. By co-financing a second ship (50,000 Euros) and covering the most important repair costs (10,044 Euros), Mare Liberum will be able to document the human rights situation directly at the sea border. The aim is to gain a better insight into the human rights situation off the smaller Greek islands, such as Kos, Samos and Chios, which are less in the spotlight, in addition to the situation observed so far for refugees off Lesbos.
