Don’t Close Ports to Rescue Ships and Migrants in Need

Target: Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, President of Malta

Goal: Re-open ports for humanitarian vessels and rescue ships working to save the lives of migrants in peril.

Migrants with their lives in peril are not given aid in Malta. The country’s government has closed ports to humanitarian vessels and rescue ships in the wake of the migration crisis.

These acts aren’t protecting the border. They’re only leading to the suffering of families in need. Closing the ports to NGOs and humanitarian efforts is a visible breach of international human rights laws.

Sign the petition to demand that Malta open its ports to humanitarian vessels and rescue ships. Malta has a duty to save the lives of those in need, not cast them back out to sea.


Dear President Preca,

Your country has closed ports to humanitarian ships and rescue vessels. Thousands of families fleeing violence and death now face a roadblock as you cast them back out to sea.

Ensuring human beings are given every means of survival is your duty. Closing ports to humanitarians is a breach of international and ethical laws. A human life is worth far more than political points. I demand you re-open ports to migrants seeking protection.
