While our ship is at sea, the Sea-Watch Team on land is engaged in raising awareness on the project and on the migration issue in the Mediterranean, by developing a network of relevant international organizations and NGOs to support the cause.
On Thursday, the camp coordinator and myself presented Sea-Watch to Amnesty International in Lampedusa. The meeting was addressed to young activists who showed a strong interest towards the project for its simple message combined with a pragmatic approach.
As representative of Sea-Watch, we donated a life-vest to AI. The life-vest has been used for SAR operations during the last patrol of our ship and therefore represents a concrete symbol of what Sea-Watch means and does: simply one life saved.
