WATCH THE MED – ALARMOPHONE, was initiated in October 2014 by activist networks and civil society actors in Europe and Northern Africa. The project established a self-organised hotline for refugees in distress in the Mediterranean Sea. Alarmophone’s main objective is to offer endangered boat people an additional option to make their SOS more visible. The Alarm Phone documents the situation, informs the coastguards, and, when necessary, mobilises additional rescue support in real time. In this way, the organisation can, at least to a certain extent, put pressure on the responsible rescue entities to avert pushbacks and other forms of human-rights violations against refugees and migrants at sea.
