Time

18.10.2019 kl. 12.00 - 14.45

Description

Open Arms is a non-governmental, non-profit organization whose main mission is to protect, by having a presence at sea, those people who try to reach Europe fleeing from war, persecution or poverty. Born from a rescue and first aid at sea company with extensive experience in the Spanish coasts, Open Arms specializes in surveillance and rescue missions of boats carrying people who need help in the Aegean and Central Mediterranean sea, as well as raising awareness of all the injustices that are happening which have been untold. At the guest lecture, Mar Sabé from Open Arms will talk about the work of the organisation and the ways in which solidarity is increasingly being criminalized as well as the repercussions this has for the work.
