APPEAL FOR THE SUPPRESSION OF SHORT-STAY VISAS FOR ADMISSION TO THE EUROPEAN UNION

Short-stay visas are contrary to the principle of the free movement of people, as recognised in international legal texts, declarations and conventions.

They are an obstacle to exercising the right of asylum.

They depend on the discretionary power of the issuing administration, and are therefore arbitrary in nature.

The evolution of European law must culminate in their suppression.

The French Human Rights League, together with several African Human Rights Leagues (in particular from Mali, Morocco, Mauritius and Tunisia), join forces with the Belgian Human Rights League and call on other European Leagues within the framework of the International Federation of Human Rights Leagues, and on other associations, political parties and individual citizens to support this appeal.
