In June, we commemorate the 44.764 victims (and counting) who died on European borders since 1993. We say their names to mourn lost lives and make sure they are not forgotten. Actions will take place in Greece, Poland, Romania, Bosnia, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Join the commemoration and #saytheirnames!

→ Organise a memorial in your own city or in the capital city of your country, reading the names of a part of the 20.000 border victims. You are joined by people across Europe. We will develop a toolkit with press releases, promotional material, photos, flyers, texts and videos for you to use - the memorial protest can be as big or small and thus as easy or hard to organize as you want. Just register here!
All over Europe, people are reading the names and making signs of those who died. Together we remember and we make sure they did not die in vain. #migrantsmatter #saytheirnames #savelives
E-mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.
* The actual amount of people who died is likely to be (much) more, as many bodies are never found.
