Civil Sea Rescue

SEEBRÜCKE is an international movement, supported
by several civil society alliances and people. We declare
our solidarity with people who are forced to flee their
homes. From German and European policy makers, we
demand the establishment of safe routes for refugees, to
stop the criminalisation of sea rescue and to receive
them in a humane way whilst respecting their rights.

Since autumn 2018, more than 62 municipalities in
Germany have declared themselves Safe Harbours – and
new ones are constantly being added (status: 27.06.19).
Even if the respective declarations go to different levels,
the Council decisions show that cities, municipalities
and rural districts are committed to prevent the deaths in
the Mediterranean and the criminalisation of sea rescue
workers. Our goal is to create as many Safe Harbours as
possible and we’re confident, Ingolstadt will be one of
the next cities on our ever-expanding list

Taking in refugees, when they need our help, doesn’t
only benefit them. By establishing as many Safe
Harbours as possible, we improve the cultural diversity
of the respective communities.
