Eumans, European Alternatives, European Movement and Natura Comune, are glad to invite you and your organisation to an open meeting that will take place next monday, the 13 of March, 6:30 pm on Zoom meeting platform (https://us06web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZEkcOCorDorGdJHUmqIbL0_ZFuNH-BLndcQ).
The recent Cutro’s shipwrecked, on the ionic coast of Italy, in which more than 69 people died and more than 50 people are still missing, and the inability, both national and european, to respond efficiently to the migration crisis - whether it is on border between Poland or Belarus or in Greece - make urgent the activation of a transnational network capable of giving centrality to the human beings and their rights, together with the democratic principles and the rule of law on which the European integration process rely.
In particular, our mission is to work on migration and related issues in a broader framework of synchronised European Citizens Initiative aiming at defining essential priorities for the European Union, ahead of the next European elections and the design of the next European Commission. You can find more information about this project, called "Democracy, Ecology, and Liberty beyond borders", here.
The meeting will constitute a public occasion to discuss and launch a major reconsideration of the relationship between Migration and Europe as well as to explore the ongoing civic initiatives, such as the European Citizens Initiative “ ‘Ensuring a dignified reception of migrants in Europe“ led by the City of Rennes through a participatory process and the Petition to the European Parliament on the respect of human rights submitted by the European Movement .
It will precede the Citizens Summit in Gdansk, Poland, from the 17th and the 19th of March where citizens committees for different intersectional demands will be presenting their initiatives and defining transnational civic actions, as much as possible based on participatory democracy instruments. At this link, you can find the program.
We would encourage you to consider joining the coalition, and contact any other persons or organisation you believe would be interested. Together, we can make migration and integration safer across the EU.
We look forward to seeing you on the 13th on Zoom at this link, and do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or ideas you may have, by writing at email@example.com
