Shipwreck in Pylos

More than 180 human rights organisations, including Médecins du Monde Greece, Italy and Belgium, co-sign an open letter in response to the tragic shipwreck off the coast of Pylos, demanding a full and independent investigation into the events, clear consequences for those responsible, an end to systematic repulsion practices at European borders and justice for the victims.

Ten years after the two shipwrecks off Lampedusa, Italy, which tragically left around 600 people dead and caused a huge public outcry, to the 600 people who drowned in the Mediterranean Sea off Pylos, Greece.

“European migration and externalization policies cause physical and psychological violence, imprisonment, and death. Stop diverting your responsibility – Stop killing people on the move!, the joint statement reads.

“….We are shaken! And we stand in solidarity with all survivors and with the families and friends of the deceased. We express our deep condolences and grief.”
