Help confront politicians with the results of the policies of
"Fortress Europe"
SEND INFORMATION TO UNITED ON REFUGEE DEATH CASES

UNITED has collected information on the deaths of refugees seeking a
safe haven and a place to live in Europe. People are killed in the
back of lorries, like the 58 Chinese people in Dover, others commit
suicide in detention centres where they see no more future. A shocking
list of 2214 cases has been compiled.
If you have information (especially newspaper cuttings) please send
them to UNITED.
A poster with campaign information on the backside is available! Order
your free copies (up to 100 for free, more can be ordered for special
purposes) and campaign against the unnecessary deaths of refugees.

establish cross-contacts or improve the flow of information on a
national and international level, the Address Book is an invaluable
tool.

UN decide on world-wide Refugee Day
INTERNATIONAL REFUGEE DAY MOVES FROM 16 TO 20 JUNE

Since several years non-governmental organisations have celebrated
International Refugee Day. However, it has been celebrated on a
variety of dates. To increase our impact on society and on the
political agenda it would be wise to concentrate on the same date in
the different countries. As the UNHCR celebrates its 50 year
anniversary this year, there are many special activities.
More information in the UNITED Calendar of Internationalism of March
2001 http://www.united.non-profit.nl/pages/calendar.htm or the website
of
the UNHCR Respect campaign  http://www.unhcr-50.org
