MiGreat - what we do
- Provide necessary assistance to migrants. Every human has a right to sufficient food, clothes, shelter, medical and psychological care, regardless of his/her legal situation. We are currently active in Sarajevo, Bosnia, supporting homeless refugees and migrants through the cold winter.
- End the War on Migration. No more razor-wire walls, weaponed border police or destructive deterrence policies. Not only are they ineffective and expensive, but also extremely harmful. Migration needs to be approached as a fact of life and needs to be facilitated and regulated rather than prevented at any cost. Away with the horror camps, the shady deals, the dead bodies in the Mediterranean Sea and the baton-shaped bruises inflicted by European border police.
- Legalize migration. Provide opportunities for (prospective) migrants to obtain work or asylum visa and make irregular migration obsolete, thus eliminating the dangers on the way and destroying the lucrative business model of smugglers. Abolish restricted access to labour, education and housing both for regular and irregular migrants to secure long term independence.

What we are doing now..
POLAND OPEN THE BORDERS! Refugees are stuck in nowhere land between Belarus and Poland. On both sides, weaponed soldiers are surrounding them. Four people died of hypothermia. Many others are trapped. Every person has a right to ask for protection. No country...
