Access to Social Justice for Migrant& Refugee peoples
In Europe, those of us who are migrants and refugees from all the regions of the Global South and from Central and Eastern Europe (some of us have lived and worked here for forty years and others arrived more recently) have lived through the various stages of the building of Fortress Europe. We have seen Europe's policy of exclusion being constructed year after year – a policy that has resulted in a sweeping rollback of people's human rights; the encampment, forcible detention and deportation; and criminalisation at the militarised southern and eastern borders of Europe. Inspired on solidarity between migrants, refugees and other social movements towards equality and inclusive society. The Transnational Migrant Platform Europe (TMP-E), Centro Filipino, ACATHI, Transnational Institute (TNI) began last December a process of preparation to convoke the Permanent Peoples Tribunal (PPT) with the aim to give clear visibility to the migrant and refugee peoples from all backgrounds as subjects of fundamental human rights; to identify and judge the chain of co-responsibility in the violation of those rights experienced throughout the whole migratory journey and to urgently identify and promote appropriate mechanisms for access to justice.
