Attacks against refugees, asylum seekers and migrants are unacceptable, say heads of European human rights institutions
As a member of the Fundamental Rights Platform (FRA) Aktion Freiheit statt Angst documents their publications, when it belongs to our subject.
FRA, together with OSCE and the Council of Europe’s European Commission against Racism and Intolerance has outlined the difficult situation of refugees in different countries. Asylum seekers there become victims of persecution and racial attacks.
"On the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, the heads of Europe’s main intergovernmental human rights institutions call for a strong response to xenophobic attacks against migrants, asylum seekers and refugees, and call on governments and state authorities to uphold their international obligations in this regard.
With the drownings in the Mediterranean persisting as refugees, asylum seekers and migrants continue to risk their lives to reach safety, this is the time to strengthen our commitment to the right to life and to dignity, said Michael O’Flaherty, Director of the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), Michael Georg Link, Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), and Christian Ahlund, Chair of the Council of Europe’s European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI)."
