Last night, while volunteer lifeguards were locked in a jail cell after their arrest, 3 young children died in the Aegean sea last night during crossing. This is the video shot last night, and it is a difficult watch, friends. But this is the reality that both refugees and volunteer rescuers are facing every day. To arrest these heroic volunteers and hinder life saving rescue operations like these is just wrong.
Tomorrow they face a judge in a Greek courtroom and answer to charges of human trafficking. If convicted, they face up to 4 years in prison. Meanwhile criminals in Turkey continue to make hundreds of millions of dollars profiting from war and genocide. Please sign and share the petition before tomorrow.
