Let’s Bring Them Here

Let’s Bring them Here is a grassroots initiative, supported by Amnesty International, which was started by a small group of European citizens who could no longer ignore the plight of refugees in Greece.

It started last year as a car parade in the Netherlands, when people drove more than 350 cars to The Hague to offer themselves as ‘official drivers’ to help out with the relocation.

Following the success of this initiative, on 6 March 2017 drivers from all over Europe will join together in front of the Council of the European Union to offer themselves as chauffeurs to help relocate the refugees stuck in Greece.

This is not just a symbolic gesture; it is an impassioned demand to European leaders from their own citizens to welcome refugees, which they will not be able to ignore.

In solidarity, on March 6, Amnesty International Ireland will hold a rally outside the European Commission/European Parliament Offices, 12-14 Mount Street Lower, Dublin 2.

European leaders have failed to live up to their promises to relocate refugees trapped in inhumane conditions in Greece. This is not the kind of Europe we want to live in – we can do better!

Join Amnesty International Ireland for Let’s Bring Them Here, part of a series of regional actions to remind European leaders of their promises to refugees.

When: Monday 6 March at 6pm

Where: Outside the European Commission/European Parliament Offices, 12-14 Mount Street Lower, Dublin 2
