At the end of June, dozens of human bodies could be found floating in the Main river in Frankfurt, Germany, face down in the water. The shocking guerrilla stunt was part of a campaign for Tag des Fluechtlings, a day that focuses on preventing the death of refugees.

The human rights campaign tried to sway residents of Frankfurt to help refugees that come into the country; the bodies in the water were meant to mimic the real floating bodies resulting from refugees who drown en route as they flee to find safety in countries like Germany.

The ProAsyl campaign wants to point out that it is unethical to leave these people to drown in the water, and that Germany and other EU countries need to provide fair asylum.
