On the way to save lives

Yesterday our new rescue ship SEA-EYE 4 left for the operational area. But yesterday Italy also detained the rescue ship SEA-WATCH 4 again. Drowned people have been part of the EU’s migration policy for years. We will do everything we can to save as many people as possible from the EU’s crosshairs.

“No, I will not get used to this.”

Last night, 130 people died in the Med again. These deaths too, could have been prevented. Our spokeswoman Sophie wrote a raw and emotional text for us about what it feels like to her, to see the number of people drowning at our borders rise almost every single day. But it’s also a plea to Europe: We can, and we must do better.

Departure to the Mediterranean

The departure of the SEA-EYE 4 was a heartfelt moment for all of us and we would like to share it with you. For this purpose, we filmed the casting off of the ship and the first few miles of its journey. Enjoy the video!

We’re Sending Another Ship

The time has finally come! The SEA-EYE 4 left the shipyard in Rostock this morning. The crossing to the Mediterranean Sea begins. For 6 months, 250 volunteers have worked towards this moment.

The basics of EU policy in the Central Mediterranean: While civil sea rescue is being attacked by all means possible, the EU finances the so-called Libyan coast guard to push refugees back to the civil war country and its torture camps.
