SOS – Shagarab Refugee Camp

Press Release – May 2013

DEMONSTRATION IN GENEVA ON THE17th OF JUNE 2013

SOS Shagarab Group is calling for a peaceful demonstration

Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Shagarab Refugee Camp must be granted Security and Protection NOW!

Distressed voices from our brothers and sisters in Shagarab Camp (Eastern Sudan) reach us expressing fear of abduction and torture by well-organized human traffickers. In the recent months the fate of refugees from Shagarab who often end up in torture camps in the Sinai desert of Egypt has come to the attention of the international community with detailed reports by UNHCR, international news agencies and human rights groups such as Amnesty International. People are abducted while trying to go about their daily lives in already very harsh conditions. Since the vast majority of people within Shagarab Camp are refugees and asylum seekers who now have become easily identifiable resource for the traffickers, they are in most urgent need of international protection.

We are therefore demanding:

UNHCR and the International community to put pressure on the Government of Sudan to ensure the safety and security of asylum seekers within its borders;

To reconsider the general conditions of the reception/transit area in the Camp as it exists today and an immediate and tangible security improvement inside and around it, so as to avoid further kidnappings;

To find imminent durable solutions for these refugees, such as resettlement opportunities to safe countries, giving priority to the most vulnerable;

To protect those asylum seekers who are currently being persecuted by the Sudanese authorities for making their voices heard and standing up for their rights and the rights of the other asylum seekers in Shagarab Camp.

Date: 17th of June 2013 (Monday)
Time: 10 am to 2 pm
Venue: Parc des Cropettes, Geneva (1 min from the main train station) Nearest Train: Genève Gare Cornavin

We will walk from Parc des Cropettes to Place des Nations (near UNHCR Headquarters)where we will make our voices heard, and where small delegation of SOS Shagarab group will meet a UNHCR Official to whom a letter stating our demands will be handed.

Anyone caring for human rights and dignity is warmly invited to join us. Participants are encouraged to wear red as symbol of all the innocent blood shed.

SOS-Shagarab is a grassroots group whose members participate on a voluntary base. We are a non-political, non-religious, non-profit, non-sectarian group of concerned individuals from all walks of life seeking to make Shagarab Refugee Camp in Eastern Sudan a safe environment for refugees.
