Voices of Culture Platform denounces EU refugee policy

ACAR as member of the Artists Rights Justice network (ARJ) which is now a part of the European “Voices of Culture” platform supports the statement against the current refugee policy of the European Union: “We, the members of the Voices of Culture Platform, join the Council of Europe and other international human rights NGOs in denouncing the EU/Turkey Agreement of 18 March 2016, as illegal under European and international law. We call on the EU, the EP but especially our own Member State governments to make the strongest active efforts in the shortest possible time frame to honour the values that the EU upholds and to construct a policy and programme that can make Europeans proud rather than ashamed.”
