Call to Geneva –
Sit-in on 09th and 10th of December 2022

9. December 2022, 12:00 - 10. December 2022 12:00

The new website http://unfairagency.org is online to mobilize for the protests in front of the UNHCR headquarters in Geneva in December. Joint travel is planned from all major Swiss cities. Help spread the word about the protest and turn the voices of refugees in Libya louder.

Proteste der Refugees in Libya vor einem Jahr vor dem UNHCR in Tripolis.
Refugees in Libya protest outside the UNHCR in Tripoli a year ago.

“One year ago, thousands of refugees had been protesting for more than 100 days in front of the UNHCR office in Tripoli: an historical act of self-organisation under the harshest conditions. Instead of listening and improving, UNHCR criticised their protest, ignored their voices, and remained silent in light of the brutal eviction and detention of those claiming their fundamental rights. Despite ongoing repressions and threats, the demands of “Refugees in Libya” prevail and their struggles continue in various different forms.

To support “Refugees in Libya” in their fight and to amplify the voices of all those who keep getting ignored, punished, and unfairly treated by an agency that is supposed to protect them, we call for two days of action in front of the UNHCR headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland on the 9th and 10th of December 2022.
