Ska on EU SUMMIT: It's high time for an European solution based on solidarity!


"We cannot outsource our responsibilities to protect those in need to other countries with terrible human rights records and a history of torture or enslavement, like Libya. We cannot expect Italy and Greece to process and accommodate all the people who arrive on their islands and beaches by themselves, while other countries simply ignore the situation. The European Parliament has proposed, with a large majority, to replace the current Dublin system by binding refugee quotas. The heads of state and government should take this as a benchmark for their summit. It's high time for a European solution based on the principle of solidarity."
