We, the citizens of Europe. Without the right of asylum is no longer there, the Union
We, citizens and nationals of the European Union, we support the appeals that have already been launched by several associations of civil society, because it is given immediate and temporary protection to persons who are in danger at the border between Greece and Turkey, our common external border : in the fields of the Aegean sea, the fugitives are parked in conditions that are unspeakable. There is no need for anyone to wait for an illusory unanimity on temporary protection, which is nothing more than an act of elementary decency. Only one EU member State to enable that procedure, provided for by european law. If none of them acts in this sense, it is up to the President of the Commission, as guardian of the Treaties, to assume the obligations of its mandate and, if required, is the responsibility of the european Parliament to put the Commission to meet its responsibilities.

this is Not more debate around the political form that the European Union should be, and even to take sides in the complex geopolitical issues. This is to know if we, the citizens of Europe, cannot escape the shame and the disgrace.

The European Union, after getting rid of their responsibility by downloading them on the Turkey, praised the role of the "bastion" (in the words of Ursula von der Leyen) done by their own member State, Greece, against the flow of migrants: making impossible in this way, the task of welcoming those who flee horror of a war conducted against them by a State criminal.

The island of Lesbos was already a symbol of a scandal a moral and political: "Push-back" and "hot spots" are the names that serve as masks of inhumanity, and the one that Jean Ziegler describes as implementing a "strategy of terror" intended to deter refugees from seeking the respect of their fundamental human rights.

The scandal is now taking the appearance of a collective failure. What in fact is liquidated is the same as the right to asylum. Article 14 of the universal Declaration of human rights : "everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution".

That is Europe, if it makes the enemy of this primary and fundamental right? What is the use of the eu institutions if member States are allowed to reject the obligations imposed on them by european law, by the Charter of fundamental rights of the Union, by the european Convention of human rights and by the Convention of Geneva of 1951? What means "Union ", if between the countries that make up some of the can to suspend the examination of asylum applications – mandatory examination in accordance with the Geneva Convention – and to escape the duties of solidarity in the reception and the distribution of the victims of persecution?

The building of europe born from the disaster of identity of the TWENTIETH century and the lessons that they have taught, has as its only legitimacy that the law on which it is based. Imagine that you can protect from the rise of national-populism trampling on the fundamental rights is the worst of the calculations that you can do.

let Us remember their responsibilities and to the commitments of the member States, the Commission, the european Parliament.
