Please sign on to the Call for the launch of the Permanent Peoples Tribunal (PPT) Session on the Violations with Impunity of the Human Rights of Migrant and Refugee Peoples.
Before the launching of the Permanent Peoples Tribunal (PPT) it is very important that the Call is widely endorsed. We aim to gather many endorsements which will also be submitted to the PPT. Your endorsement of the Call will be highly appreciated.
Objective of the PPT Session
The objective of this process and Session of the PPT is to identify and judge the “chain” of co-responsibility in the entire migration and refugee journey that involves the systematic and widespread violation of human rights that demand urgent action and access to justice. This is a process that we seek to build from below, with the people most involved and most directly affected – from the migrant and refugee self-organisations.
The co-convening organizations, Transnational Migrant Platform Europe (TMP-E), Filipino Center-Barcelona, ACATHII-Barcelona, Transnational Institute (TNI), have met together with several organisations in Barcelona in December 2016 and in March 2017 to prepare the initial steps towards the PPT. From these meetings it was agreed to formally request the PPT to hold a Session on the EU Border regime and the violations of the rights of migrant and refugee peoples.
The Permanent Peoples Tribunal have accepted the Petition and the launch of the PPT will be held in Barcelona July 7-8, 2017. The first Hearing of the PPT will be in December (2017) and a second Hearing in 2018.
The preparation of the PPT is open to migrant and refugee organizations; and also to the networks and platforms that support the work of denouncing the violations of human and peoples rights that take place at the multiple borders of Europe and through the entire migratory journey.
