To forget is to kill: The Pillars of Shame will be a metaphor for the betrayal inflicted upon them by the United Nations and a constant warning to anyone who might work for the UN in the future.

Saving lives can be so simple – if one truly wants to. The German government rescues 55,000 Syrian children from the war with our ready-to-use Emergency Programme.

To stop the biggest arms deal in recent German history, we offered a reward of EUR 25,000 for any evidence that puts the owners of arms manufacturer Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) behind bars.

A memorial for the victims of the Berlin Wall left the city’s government quarters to escape the commemoration festivities for the fall of the Berlin wall’s 25th anniversary to the borders of the European Union.

The Dead are coming


The German government’s worst nightmares came true: refugees who drowned or starved to death at Europe’s external borders, were brought to Berlin. Together with the victims’ relatives, we opened inhumane graves and exhumed the bodies. You missed the intervention? Check it out here.

It will be nothing less than a landmark achievement of humanity: a bridge from North Africa to Europe, a lifeline between two continents and the largest economic stimulus package in the history of the European Union.

In order to bring humanity to the sea, the first rescue platform “Aylan 1“ (6 x 6m) was loaded onto a ship in the harbour of Licata / Sicily and installed in international waters on 4 October 2015. On board: satellite emergency call devices, direction-finding radio transmitters, radar reflectors, a flag pole, navigation lights, life buoys, a box with a steel insert and solar modules for power generation.
