Press Release: Cultúr Migrants Centre calls for decisive action on the refugee crisis in Europe now

refugee crisis in Europe

Cultúr are joining others such as the Irish Refugee Council and the Migrant Rights Centre Ireland by calling for the Irish government to respond immediately to the greatest humanitarian crisis since world war two. The Irish state must take a stand and demonstrate a real commitment to the human rights of refugees arriving in Europe. This in effect means increasing significantly the numbers of refugees we have agreed to relocate to Ireland.

Sinead Smith project manager of Cultúr stated that:

"The German Government have stepped up to the plate and shown what governments can do when they show leadership on a humanitarian crisis such as this. We believe that Ireland can and should provide refuge, safety and a new life for asylum seekers and refugees in Ireland in a manner that facilitates them to be part of and live in our local communities. We believe that many Irish citizens support this too."

Ireland currently holds a seat on the UN Council of Human Rights and we need to demonstrate our commitment to human rights now when it really matters.

Many of us from Meath will be at the Famine Memorial on Custom House Quay, Dublin 1 at 1pm on Saturday 5th September but events will take place all over the country and all are welcome to attend the stand for solidarity.

Cultúr are encouraging those who support this call to sign up to the Uplift campaign to call on Taoiseach Enda Kenny to increase the numbers of refugees Ireland will accept for relocation on . More information on how to support organisations working on this issue are listed on our website and facebook page culturnavan.
