The campaign ‘Protect People Not Borders’ aims to raise awareness in European institutions and at theUnited Nations for the immediate and concrete commitment to prevent thousands of people from dying when seeking asylum to Europe.

The campaign started in 2014 with a flashmob in Lampedusa that saw the participation of both citizens of Lampedusa and migrants – the survivors and the families of the victims – who added up to a total of 368 people: the same number of people who died during the shipwreck on October 3rd 2013.
