Deportations of asylum seekers have to stop. Join us to demonstrate on Tuesday 9.10. at 9-9.30 am
We will gather in front of the Ministry of the Interior (Kirkkokatu 12) on Tuesday morning to tell our decision-makers that Afghanistan is not safe, and that no one should be sent back.
To end the demonstration we will hand over a petition signed by almost 18 000 people demanding to halt deportations to Afghanistan to Finland’s Minister of the Interior Kai Mykkänen.
Finland and many other EU countries justify deportations to Afghanistan by stating that specific areas within the country are safe. According to research conducted by Amnesty International this is not the case and the circumstances in Afghanistan have deteriorated even further this year. Under customary international law, there is a legal obligation not to return people to countries where there is a risk for serious human rights violations.
Various sections of Amnesty International are demonstrating around Europe so that countries would stop deportations to Afghanistan. Come along!
