Despite my reservation about starting an online petition I've started HUMANITY BEFORE NATIONALITY in summer 2021. The petiton ended in summer 2022. You can still visit the website. It is available in English, German, Italian, French and Spanish.
It is horrifying and heartbreaking to witness the government's lack of will to find a solution that is beneficial for everyone. Why is this issue causing headaches for these highly educated and overpaid people in the governments, non-profit organizations, and charities? Why is it so difficult to find a simple and helpful solution that ends this broken integration system once and for all? Why are people who have come to Europe to seek safety treated like outcasts? Instead of taking care of these innocent people, they are sent to abandoned buildings outside the city centers or punished like criminals in refugee camps. Asylum seekers and Refugees are treated as if they are terrorists with a disease who should be removed from society, punished, and given life sentences like prisoners.
We have witnessed this horrible humanitarian crisis for over a decade. It is time to make a fundamental change and rescue the refugees from their life in misery. Refugees deserve a life of dignity. Safety and privacy, housing and food, medical and sociological care, and guidance for participating in the legal asylum-seeking process.
When people claim asylum, having left their homes and loved ones to escape conflict and persecution, they are desperate to start their lives from zero again. But the Refugee Law today makes it impossible for them in every possible way. Those who end up in refugee camps suffer as well as those who make it to European countries.
Tents and blankets are not the long-term solutions. It is finally time to REALLY help the helpless. Asylum seekers, refugees, and displaced humans have already lost everything. They shouldn’t be punished. They shouldn’t suffer under horrifying and inhuman conditions in refugee camps or abandoned buildings. Depression, serious health and mental issues, and social isolation are the consequences.
Asylum seekers and refugees are suffering in their adopted countries in European countries because they have no right to proper education, employment, and integration. Depression, serious health and mental issues, and social isolation are the consequences.
Every human being who seeks asylum should have the right to proper education, integration, and work in their adopted country in Europe. Giving asylum seekers and refugees the right to work will strengthen people’s chances of being able to integrate into their new communities. It will allow them to live in dignity and to provide for themselves and their families. It will allow them to use their skills and make the most of their potential. It will improve the mental health of people in the asylum system.
That’s why refugees should be treated with respect. Every single person deserves to experience life in safety and dignity. Every single person should live a safe life in a house and not in a tent or an abandoned asylum house.
Every single refugee deserves to thrive and not just survive!
I demand the following for Refugees in Refugee Camps:
Shut down the refugee camps.
Give the refugees a proper home.
Offer them legal advice in their asylum process.
Offer them health and mental care.
I demand the following for Refugees in European Countries
I demand more rights for asylum seekers and refugees in education, employment, residence, and integration. A regular income and a proper residence permit reduce crime, poverty, sham / forced marriages. Asylum seekers and refugees in European countries should get a faster and more transparent asylum process
We need to be the voice for the voiceless and end this human tragedy once and for all! “Lily4Refugees” is my passion project. I’m a writer, blogger, and Voice4Refugees. I’m a former war refugee that has suffered for almost three decades under the refugee law that stops asylum seekers and “tolerated” refugees from education and full integration. That’s why I choose “Humanity Before Nationality” as my petition title. All my life I was reduced to one piece of paper, and it made my life a living hell!
I've stared an online petiton on the Swiss petition platform
This petition is still open. You can sign and support, if you care about human rights and dignity.
Thank you for your love & support! Thank you for your humanity. Dankeschön. Merci. Grazie.
Six months after starting the petiton and collecting only 40 signatures, I put all my hopes in the miracle of music and the power of lyrics.
After writing song lyrics for over a decade, I finally had the chance to release my very first song.
The following press release was sent out to 500+ news websites, TV & Radio, Trade/Industry, national and International News sites to bring
awarness about my online petition #HumanityB4Nationality and my song for refugees 80 Million people, Lily Amis feat. Thir13een! A deep and emotional song dedicated to all the voiceless refugees worldwide.
This is the official lyrics video. I hope you like and share it!
Only two days after my song "80 Million People!" was released a new war started!
My second song "Blood is always red!" was not suppose to be released until May 2022, but the lyrics are powerful and it was my way of showing my support with the innocent people in the war zone!
This is the official lyrics video. I hope you like and share it!
May 2022: Lilys Ambassadors - Lilys Botschafter - Worldwide Release - 22.5.22 in English and German!
I've tried everything in my power to make my online petition #HumanityB4Nationality successful, but it has been very challenging
to get signatures. Not necessarily because people don’t care about the right of refugees, but mainly because they have
lost their trust in our governments. Most people that I have contacted or spoken to, have a negative view of online petitions because of
our world leaders, lawmakers, governments, and co.
Releasing my book “Lilys Ambassadors”, in German “Lilys Botschafter” is my final initiative before the petition ends in July 2022.
Lilys nine Ambassadors are Lucky, Lovely, Lucie, Lemon, Leonardo, Laila, Ludwig, Louise, and Lennon. The adorable story tellers were born during and after the lockdown in 2020 and 2021. Everything began with Lucky. Meanwhile, eight more enchanting characters are sharing their amusing and inspiring life stories with important messages. Integration, Acceptance, Tolerance as well as anti-discrimination, anti-racism, anti-bullying, friendship, humanity, empathy, and education are the most powerful topics in this entertaining book for children from eight to adult readers.
