„We, the European Festivals, provide the escape from reality and celebrate life. But not this summer… Still we have the power to turn our spotlights to those who deserve it and together with you we want to create a #WaveOfSolidarity.
Today is WORLD REFUGEE DAY and while we‘re stuck in a reality of social distancing and home lockdown that prevents us from performing our magic, civil sea rescue is reality just as much. Let’s give the stage to those who hope for a better future and to those who defend our values on a voluntary basis at the deadliest border of the world – the mediterranean sea.
Exactly five years ago a few activists hoisted their sails to start their civil sea rescue missions. Since then these brave people have saved more than 100.000 lives under intolerable conditions and kept the spotlights on human rights on our behalf. They show us that every single one of us can make a difference in this world.
We thank them for their selflessness, persistence and inspiration. We support civil sea rescue. Together we don‘t compromise on human rights.
Today we create an ocean of sound and solidarity to support those who want to live and those who save lives.
Because festivals celebrate life.
And life is beyond price.
But sea rescue is not.“
