We ask 3 questions to the shipyard crew of the Sea-Watch 3.
Nils is on board as a captain. As the EU’s current inhumane policies are not improving the situation in the Mediterranean, he is helping to get the Sea-Watch 3 back on mission as soon as possible.
Why do we need ships like the Sea-Watch 3?
There should be no need for ships like the Sea-Watch 3. It is a shame for the EU that we have to exist. Europe should admit to itself that the current inhumane policy is not improving the situation in the Mediterranean – on the contrary.
Why is the Sea-Watch 3 a special place for you?
The Sea-Watch 3 lives through the commitment of the numerous volunteers. It is a challenge, but it is insanely fun to work with the many different people who voluntarily come on board to get involved.
What is your message to the European authorities?
Europe paying others to push back people to Libya is obviously not the solution. Europe must finally stop this policy. Instead, we should show solidarity – with people on the move, but also with the southern European countries that are being left alone by the rest of Europe.
