Petition update

First victory in removing the limit on family reunification from Greece

Michael Kientzle
Thessaloniki, Greece

Jun 22, 2017 — After three weeks of sustained effort, the situation of families waiting to be reunified from Greece to Germany has slightly improved. Greek authorities have told us, in June in addition to 70 transfers, up to 40 vulnerable people will be allowed to fly to Germany. But this is not enough - we are not done by a long shot.

So many people are still unlawfully kept apart, and waiting times are astronomical. Share the petition with friends and family and in your community. Start speaking about the issue to the people you know, speak to your representatives and ask them to do something.

We can bring these families back together!

I would like to thank the following organisations for sharing and supporting the campaign:
-Greek Forum for Refugees
-Are You Syrious
-Advocates Abroad
-Refucomm
-Asylum Links EU
-SickOfWaiting
-Generation 2.0 for Rights, Equality & Diversity
