Do you have Room For A Change?

DO YOU HAVE ROOM FOR A CHANGE? Room For A Change is a growing initiative of EU citizens. We are urging the European Union and its 27 member states to take responsibility for refugees. The European Union aims to provide a life in dignity, prosperity and safety for its citizens. However, for refugees on the European borders and inside the EU this does not apply. Instead, human rights are constantly violated. Our decision-makers are denying humans the basic needs that we are taking for granted. We, the citizens of the European Union, do no longer tolerate the constant mistreatment of our values. We demand: R – Rescue We are calling for a new joint EU sea rescue mission to prevent further deaths in the Mediterranean Sea. Physical violence towards and abuse of refugees on the European borders and inside the EU have to stop immediately. Stop pushbacks on the European borders. F – Fair treatment Refugees are frequently reduced to numbers, figures and being a problem – stripping them of their individual context and identity. We must respect their human rights by treating each and every person with dignity, empathy, equality and humanity. The European Union pride themselves in sharing a unique set of values. We want every member state to also share social responsibility and thus to commit to a fair and proportional distribution of asylum-seekers. A – Accommodation Access to safe and humane accommodation is essential for a life in dignity. Inhumane living conditions for refugees on the European borders and inside the European Union have to end immediately. Instead, we are calling on decision-makers to quickly provide accommodation with access to basic amenities (water, food, hygiene, heating, electricity, medical & psychological care). C – Change in perspective Currently most decision-makers speak about refugees but not with them. This has to change. Refugees have to be involved in discussing issues, solutions and decisions on their own fate.  Open Call:  Do you want to join the team of Room For A Change? Help us create further awareness for the current situation of refugees. Together we want to change the Status quo!  We’d love to get to know you! Contact us at: info[at]

Petition to the Swedish Migration Agency, ,

Mrs. Narges Alidoust Jalali (Ref. Number: 0-228351/9)

Göte­borg Asylum Examination Unit Box 1087 405 23 Göteborg Fax: 031-795 53 30 Your Excellency, I am writing to express my concern about the Iranian asylum seeker - Mrs. Narges Alidoust Jalali (Ref. Number: 0-228351/9) - political and human rights activist in Sweden and she has not been granted the refugee status and asylum in your Good Country, despite of her credible reasons (on the basis of her documents presented to the Swedish Immigration Office showing her tireless activities against the regime in Iran.) for claiming asylum, and she shall be in danger of persecution as defined by asylum law. As a reason for her decision to come to your good Country, she stated that he had chosen Sweden "because human rights and freedom of belief prevail here". On the other side, she has been converted to the Christianity in Sweden. The Christians in Iran, especially converts, face both social and legal discrimination. Converts have faced penalties up to and including death in the past.  Nobody should be persecuted because of their faith. Your good country  has a responsibility to protect those who are facing torture, imprisonment or death due to their religious beliefs.  Iran is one of the most dangerous countries in the world for Christians with both preaching and conversion being illegal. Converts face social exclusion, arrest, and long prison sentences. Studies show that Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world and the European Court of Human Rights has rightly invited submissions on the situation that converts face in Iran, Your kind attention and consideration in this respect is highly appreciated and I am looking forward to hearing from you soon. Yours sincerely, Parviz Khazaei Parviz Khazaei / Amnesty International Liechtenstein and Switzerland  Address:  Am Bach 16 - 9495 Triesen / Liechtenstein  Email :   Twitter: @ParvizKhazaei1 Tel. : 0041 79 363 5898

Petition to Abd al-Fattah as-Sisi

Call for immediate investigation into the disappearance of 400 people!

WHY THIS PETITION MAKES A DIFFERENCE: With this petition as an addition to a draft letter to Embassies involved relevant organisations we demand on inquiry into the disappearance about this 400 people! If we have a respectable number of signatures on this petition we can reach out to the responsible authorities and give a voice to this helpless people!   WHAT HAPPENED: The war of July to August 2014 pushed many Gazans to flee for safety. Women, men, and children have taken the perilous road to Europe, of which Egypt is the first step. On the 6th of september 2014 around 11pm a ship with hundreds of people disappeared after its departure from Alexandria port in Egypt. A list of 400 names of asylum seekers who have disappeared and may be locked away in the Al-Azuli prison was published. On board were Egyptians (260), Syrians (120), Palestinians (200), Sudanese and people from the Comoros Islands that were on their way to find refuge and a life without danger of death in Europe.The vessel was named the Haji Mohamed Saad and was headed toward the Italian island of Lampedusa. For three days the boat travelled, after which all connection and whereabouts was lost. At the time, Palestinian families mobilized and demanded accounts from the Egyptian government, which remained a dead letter. All signs vanished and the relatives of the passengers assumed that their friends and family members died. The ship wrack or any dead bodies have officially never been found and there was for longer than 6 years simply no answer.  A few days ago, photos from inside an egyptian prison appeared in the media and some of the people could be identified as passengers from the Haji Mohamed Saad being held in this egyptian prison Al-Azuli. People were asking authorities for evidence and of course wanted to know about their missing beloved. These requests have never been answered. Now that these pictures appeared, there are many more questions! These people may stuck in prison longer than 6 years! Relatives dont know if their people are alive or dead. Now its late but its the time to answer this questions which havent been answered for many years! Links: - Video Arabic and English: - Video News: - Pictures from the bodies:
