Save Hospitality Campaign (Completed)

Watch the campaign video.

In April 2013 Pro Igual joined the Save Hospitality campaign spearheaded by a Federation of Spanish NGOs Andalucia Acoge. The campaign aims at amending the draft legislation that would otherwise penalize charitable assistance for migrants in an irregular administrative situation.

Pro Igual presented the NGO Motion at the townhall of Almeria, joining dozens of other organizations and localities where the campaign is underway. Check the Hospitality Map to find out where else such motions have either been presented or passed.

You can also support the initiative by signing the Petition and/or presenting Individual Motion to your local government in Spain.

On 18 June 2013, under mounting pressure of civil society, the Government has agreed to revise the bill to exclude humanitarian assistance from the punishable offense.

In September 2013, the revised bill was officially passed into the law, a major victory for civil society.
