Rolling for rescue - a wheely good cause with Tamara Katzenberger
Since 2015, at least 11,600 people have drowned in their flight across the central Mediterranean route. How high the dark figure is, can only be guessed. Nevertheless, Europe is not responsible for this indescribable suffering at its external borders. There are no state-run maritime rescue programs, while at the same time humanitarian aid is being criminalized.
In the middle of September Tamara Katzenberger will go to cross Belgium on skates from west to east. From the North Sea coast via Ghent, Brussels, Antwerp and Hasselt to Maastricht in the Netherlands, a total of over 300 km on 8 rollers!
Tamara enjoys the privilege of being able to travel while others travel to survive. Therefore, on my way, I would like to collect donations for Sea-Watch eV and colleagues who continue to do important work in the Mediterranean despite repression and criminalization.
