Peligro y muerte para las personas refugiadas por el uso de vallas y filtros de entrada por parte de la UE
Tras los atroces atentados del pasado viernes en París, la Unión Europea (UE) debe resistir el impulso de cerrar aún más sus fronteras exteriores, pues con ello seguiría fomentando una serie de abusos contra los derechos humanos sin conseguir mejorar la seguridad ni detener la afluencia de personas refugiadas desesperadas, afirma Amnistía Internacional al presentar un nuevo informe que publica hoy.
Le choix de l’UE d’ériger des barbelés et de faire filtrer les entrées par ses voisins met les réfugiés en danger, quand il ne leur coûte pas la vie
Après les attentats perpétrés vendredi 13 novembre à Paris, l’Union européenne (UE) doit résister à la demande pressante d’une fermeture renforcée de ses frontières extérieures, qui continuerait d’alimenter diverses violations des droits humains tout en ne faisant rien pour endiguer les flux de réfugiés aux abois, a déclaré Amnesty International alors qu’elle publie un nouveau rapport mardi 17 novembre.
Refugees endangered and dying due to EU reliance on fences and gatekeepers
In the wake of last Friday’s atrocious attacks on Paris the European Union (EU) must resist the urge to further seal off its external borders, which would continue to fuel a range of human rights abuses while doing nothing to enhance security or halt the influx of desperate refugees, said Amnesty International as it published a new report today.
