Protecting human rights is not an option – it’s a duty. Our new campaign calls on the staff of EU border police force Frontex to blow the whistle when they see wrongdoing.
Multiple evidence shows that contributions to Frontex are being used to perpetrate and enable violence at the EU’s borders. The German government must take responsibility, and stop contributing resources to Frontex.
In April, the EU Parliament told Frontex to drop their demand against us for the payment of € 10,520 in legal fees. The EU border force has chosen to disregard EU Members of Parliament - again.
EU border police Frontex has long-claimed search and rescue is a crucial part of their operations at sea. New research reveals how Frontex has in fact worked to render its own rescue capabilities useless - at the expense of innocent lives.
Frontex cannot be reformed. It must be abolished. Instead, we must build a system that guarantees justice and safety for all.
In its copyright lawsuit against us, the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment has lost against us in the second instance. The Cologne Higher Regional Court ruled that we were allowed to publish a controversial glyphosate report drafted by the Institute. However, the authority of Agriculture Minister Julia Klöckner may not accept this ruling either.
The decisive EU policy is not made in parliament, but in informal, non-transparent meetings: the so-called trilogues. With our new campaign "Black Box EU" we make central documents of these negotiations public. Join in!
Not only thousands of individuals, but also dozens of civil society organisations are now demanding that Frontex withdraw its bill against us. We document their open letter.
We need to delete the government report on glyphosate for now. The Cologne District Court sent us an injunction because of an alledged copyright violation. We will fight against it - and need your click aid!
With our platform "Pot Secret" consumers can easily obtain the results of food safety inspections in restaurants, bakeries, supermarkets. On the first day 4,500 requests were sent to authorities all over Germany – a clear sign that we need more transparency.
As you might expect, Law-making in Germany is a highly-regulated business. Even though theoretically all members of parliament have the power to draft laws, for most policy areas the first version of new laws are being drafted by the Federal Ministries.
