    For 16 days the Search and Rescue ship, Sea Watch 3, was stuck in the Mediterranean, during a heat wave, after rescuing 53 migrants drifting on an inflatable raft off the coast of Libya. The captain of the rescue ship, Carola Rackete, was unjustly arrested by the Italian authorities after having forced the ship into Italian waters to bring the migrants to safety. She is now facing up to 5 years in prison, accused of "facilitating illegal immigration" and a fine of 15.000 euros for each person rescued. 

    This is just another example of how our right to help people is being criminalized and people from civil society organizations are being arrested, fined and intimidated all across Europe for simply offering humanitarian assistance to people fleeing persecution. Just three days ago two ships - Alan Kurdi and Alex - on rescuing missions found themselves in clashes with EU member states to get a safe haven. This cannot be part of the "European values" that are spoken so highly of.

    On Tuesday 16 July, a new EU Commission president will be voted by the Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). This is a crucial moment for real change in Europe. As European citizens we demand our elected MEPs to vote against a Commission President who is not committed to re-establish a new European Sea search and rescue mission in the Mediterranean Sea.   

    In particular, we call on the new Commission President to commit to: 

    • Strive to open safe and legal channels for migrants and re-establish an efficient European Sea search and rescue mission;
    • Stop punishing volunteers and civil society organisations for saving and rescuing  people fleeing persecution, poverty and human rights abuse in the Mediterranean Sea;
    • Reform the Dublin Regulation to establish an asylum policy based on solidarity, on humanity and an orderly process, including the fair sharing of responsibilities among Member States;
    • Suspend any kind of  EU-support to the Libyan coastguard and ensure that people rescued are not sent back to Libya as this should not be considered a safe country.

    -SUMMARY-

    Carola Rackete, was unjustly arrested by the Italian authorities after having forced the ship into Italian waters to bring migrants to safety. Because of that, she is now facing up to 5 years in prison for "facilitating illegal immigration" and a fine of 15.000 euros for each person rescued. As EU citizens we want  the new EU Commission to re-establish an European Sea search and rescue mission.
    Saving lives is not a crime.

    Petition

    We demand the EU declare a climate emergency. Now. Leading scientists warn that we have less than 11 years to stop the impending climate catastrophe or face the devastating local and global impact of extreme heat, drought, floods and poverty.

    But it’s not too late. By limiting Global Warming to 1.5°C, The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report says that we can curb the damages of climate change. We already have the solutions to do this, by phasing out fossil fuels to investing in a green economy.  

    We need the political will to achieve this. People are rising up, striking and urging the EU to take more ambitious action on climate change. The climate must be the priority across all policy decisions. It starts by demanding the EU to declare a climate emergency.

    -SUMMARY-

    We only have 11 years to halt the disastrous impact of climate change. The EU must make the climate the priority. Sign to make the EU declare a climate emergency. Now.

    PETITION 

    Bees and other wild pollinators are rapidly declining. And wow, we also know that more than 1 million species are at risk of extinction – and the problem is only getting worse. In fact, we’re doing so much damage to the natural environment that we’re putting our own survival at real risk.

    That’s the conclusion of the largest study ever conducted on biodiversity and life on our planet Earth, just released by the United Nations. With the natural environment being destroyed at a record rate, wild animals, marine life – including bees and other insect life – are all disappearing at alarming speeds.

    The authors of the report describe the picture as deeply “ominous”, and warn that we’re putting the wellbeing of all life – including our own –  at profound risk if we don't take immediate and fundamental action to change course.

    But it’s not too late to turn the situation around. The report is clear that with urgent action at all levels, life on Earth can still thrive. 

    That’s why we need Europe to take a clear stand to protect our biodiversity – by immediately stopping the flow of public money used to fund intensive farming and harmful pesticides. Let’s save the bees, and all life on Earth!

    -SUMMARY-

    Stop funding and subsidising intensive farming and the use of harmful pesticides that are destroying our biodiversity.

    Petition

    The EU has failed to act to ensure that every European has the right to a decent income, fair working conditions and adequate social protection, regardless of their circumstances.

    While Europe as a whole is wealthier than ever, right across our continent – from Bulgaria to France, and from Germany to Greece – millions of people still live in poverty and social exclusion.

    And many of those worst affected are children. Everyone deserves a decent standard of living, and the solutions are already on the table. By passing legislation giving all citizens the right to a decent minimum income, the EU could ensure that all its citizens can live in dignity.

    But the EU has so far failed to take concrete action. It’s time for that to change, and in the lead-up to the EU elections our influence is greater than ever.  This Labour Day, let’s come together and raise our voices to demand the next European Parliament passes legislation to ensure a decent minimum income for everyone!

     

    -SUMMARY-

    With less than one month until the European elections, we stand at a crossroads. On tackling climate change, on protecting democracy – and not least on putting social justice at the heart of our Union. Sign the petition to call on the next European Parliament to ensure all citizens have the right to a decent minimum income.

    Petition

    Air transport contributes a lot to the dangers of climate change. And increasingly so! This trend must be reversed!

    Trains far outrank planes in their eco-friendliness. Yet international trains in Europe are expensive and difficult to book.

    Global aviation emissions have more than doubled in the last 20 years. Carbon emissions from flying has risen by 26% in the last 5 years alone. Up until now, the aviation sector refuses to take responsibility. Action is very urgent, the aviation industry projects a doubling in the total number of passengers carried between now and 2040.

    The EU must shift its priorities. It must stop ignoring the great potential of our train networks. Europe needs to invest more in the railway network and make trains the easiest and cheapest option.

    Travels up to 800 kilometres will have to be cheapest and easiest by train.

    Therefore, we demand:

    • That the EU invests more in trains and less in air transport! We insist on this change to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.

    • Ending the unfair competition against our rail systems. Airline companies must pay their fair share in taxes!

    -SUMMARY-

    Air transport contributes a lot to the dangers of climate change. Airplane emissions are currently responsible for an estimated 4.9% of global warming caused by human activity. Europe needs to invest more in the railway network and make trains the easiest and cheapest option. More trains, less planes!

    To: Member State governments of the European Union

    The Internet as we know it is in danger.

    On the 26th March, the European Parliament voted yes, with a narrow majority, on the introduction of upload filters on the Internet. If the final decisions passes the European Council (comprising EU governments) on the 15th April, it would fundamentally change the way content creators and users experience the Internet on a daily basis, harming authors and their fans alike.

    What are upload filters? Automated algorithms that scan every uploaded photo, video, article for possible copyright infringement before the content is published. The effect? Videos of cute kittens could be taken down because a copyrighted song can be heard in the distance. Your karaoke photos can get flagged because there is a poster or picture with a trademark in the background. Your story might not upload for several hours while the filter is running through all the existing content to check for potential violations.

    Small online newspapers, blogs and fact checking websites are also among those affected - and these sites keep our internet diverse, reliable and free for the press.

    We want the Internet to be instant, spontaneous and free. It has become an everyday part of our lives. The current proposal would change that. We must make sure this proposal doesn't pass the European Council.

    Sign to tell your government to vote against the upload filters on the 15th April!

    -SUMMARY-

    This is our last chance to stop upload filters. The European Council (comprising member state government ministers) is having the final say on upload filters on the 15th April. Let's make sure they know how European citizens want them to vote!

    Petition

    Every year, 60,000 animals are mistreated (and then slaughtered) in Spain during the cruel and popular bullfighting festivals, as reported by the National Association for the Protection and Welfare of Animals.

    In Spain, Portugal and France, the torture and slaughter of bulls in public is permitted under the protection of a so-called "tradition".

    Tradition or not, bullfighting is a barbaric show and should not be considered as an accepted "sport" in Europe. Torturing animals is neither art nor culture.  It is violence against innocent animals.

    Bulls must not continue to be subjected to mistreatment during these "traditional festivals" in Spain, Portugal and France, often at the cost of their own lives. It's time we stop this now.

     





    -SUMMARY-

    Torturing animals for "entertainment" is neither art, nor culture nor sport. It is violence. Let's stop this horrific “sport” and protect the rights and welfare of animals now✊

    PETITION

    The fragile ecosystem of our seas are under serious threat. Increasing human activity, shipping to fossil fuel exploration, overfishing to air, water and plastic pollution are all putting more stress on seas. Climate change is disrupting marine habitats’ natural balance through increasing temperatures, and ocean acidification further threatens the viability of many species throughout the food chain.

    Currently, only 9% of EU seas are covered by Marine Protected Areas. Most of these areas are not actually protected against the impacts of human activities. This is not good enough. We need to designate significant sections of European waters as networks of MPAs , free from human interference, to allow biodiversity to recover and improve ecosystem resilience against climate change in the long term.

    Support the call for 30% of our seas to become real marine protected areas with effective management measures in place under the next European Parliament. Please sign the petition now.

    Petition

    Over the past decade, Putin has been consolidating the nuclear industry for Russia into one of the largest in Europe. Through the state-owned nuclear energy company Rosatom, Russia has been pushing to build more nuclear reactors in Europe to increase its influence over other governments and to break European unity. We see this happening in Belarus, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary, Slovakia, and even the UK. A recent study shows Russia is buying influence in the EU through its nuclear strategy. We need to stop this. 

    Nuclear power is not our future. Nuclear power is expensive and economically unsustainable. Billions of euro's in taxpayer money are squandered, energy bills are made unnecessary high. It creates nuclear waste for which there is no final solution and it is risky. If something goes wrong, neighbouring countries can be seriously affected as well. On top of this, we see external investors, like Rosatom, gaining huge power over the EU energy market.

    We already have great alternatives. Green solutions that are economic, climate-friendly and safe to use. Solutions that create more sustainable jobs and that give us control over energy supply. With rapid advancements to renewable technology, there is no excuse to choose nuclear over renewable energy. Yet there are four nuclear reactors under construction and another five planned to be built in the EU.

    No more dependency on Russian energy. Nuclear is not our future. We need to stand up against this and fight for a moratorium on nuclear energy.
