The countdown is nearly over. Before a jury consisting of internationally acclaimed authors, professors and activists, Tribunal 12 will tomorrow accuse Europe of the continual violations of human rights and mistreatments of refugees, migrants and asylum seekers.
Nobel Prize-winning author Elfriede Jelinek, musician Jason Diakité aka Timbuktu, singer-songwriter José González and author Jonas Hassen Khemiri are just a few of many who have so far joined the accusation.
