We were extremely honoured to welcome Sarah Mardini to the studio on Wednesday for a special interview. Sarah Mardini, alongside Seán Binder, Nassos Karakitsos and 21 others were involved in search and rescue activities on the island of Lesvos, and are now facing trial. Arrested in Greece on unfounded charges, they risk a sentence of up to 25 years in jail for assisting migrants and asylum seekers at sea. While humanitarian assistance of people like Seán, Sarah and Nassos has been essential, authorities across Europe continue to criminalise people and organisations that assist and support refugees and save lives (at sea and on land).
