Prominent voices call for an immediate search and rescue programme

Europe must stop people drowning in the
Mediterranean. Not sometime in the future, but this year. A political
emergency solution is needed, a Europe-wide mechanism for
distributing those saved from distress at sea. It is time to fully
respond to the great readiness to help expressed by cities,
municipalities and citizens. Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, chair of the
Council of the Evangelical Church in Germany, and Palermo\’\’\’\’s mayor
Leoluca Orlando made this clear yesterday in a joint declaration. The
initiative is now receiving cross-party support. Robert Habeck,
Henriette Reker, Ruprecht Polenz and Gesine Schwan have taken up the
Palermo Appeal, along with clergy from Germany and Sweden.

members of the Sea-Watch crew and Sea Bridge movement, at
