Europe, don't let us down

Oxfam and ActionAid have listened to hundreds of refugee and migrant women and men in Greece to understand why they fled their countries, what their immediate needs are, and what they plan to do next. Their situation is desperate, but also avoidable.

Add your name to the petition to call on governments to guarantee the safety of people forced to flee.

Stand as One with refugees and asylum seekers

65 million people worldwide have been forced to flee violence, conflict and persecution. Now is the time to stand in solidarity with them and tell world leaders that they must commit to do more for refugees and migrants. If you agree that we all deserve to live in safety, then please Stand As One and sign our petition today.

EU “hotspots” spread fear and doubt

The EU must urgently re-think its collective treatment of people arriving at Europe’s borders and ensure that every human being, no matter their status, enjoys the basic respect of their rights and fundamental dignity. 

There are now more than 50 000 refugees currently stranded in Greece. Their situation is increasingly worsening.

Stranded in Greece: the long refugee road to nowhere

Every day, boatloads of people fleeing war and poverty arrive on the small Greek Island of Lesbos from Turkey. They have risked their lives on a dangerous voyage with no guarantees. They are now stranded in Greece, without hope of continuing their journey to Europe. They need your help.
