 Migrant Voice - 'Why is everyone not outraged?': Your thoughts for Refugee Week 2019

Refugee Week is often a time to celebrate the lives of people who made it to safety. This year, we also wanted to remember those who did not.

Since the start of 2019, more than 1,000 people have died as they tried to seek sanctuary, half of them in the Mediterranean (and those are just the deaths that have been recorded). As rescuing people at sea is increasingly criminalised across Europe, those numbers are set to rise further.

During Refugee Week 2019, we gathered people’s thoughts for those who have lost their lives and messages to the world leaders who can end this tragedy.

Here are some of the messages you sent...
