Bamako Call for the respect and dignity of migrants (2006)
In the name of the fight against clandestine immigration, governments implement a repressive policy with the externalisation of wealthy countries borders through camps, refoulements, deportations and labour force selection. Those policies lead to dramas such as in Ceuta and Melilla, deaths in the desert, in the Mediterranean sea or in the Rio Grande.
Call of Bamako 2008
The application of the Hague program in 2004 (on the externalization of border controls) has reinforced repression against migrants in Europe. This program has transformed the transit countries into the 'policemen of European borders'. A real war is on his way. The 'soldiers' are the African states and the border agency FRONTEX is its armed European wing.
