22. Mai 2015 | Proteste zum 10. Geburtstag von FRONTEX in Rabat (Marokko)

In einem auf englisch und französisch vorliegenden Bericht werden die Aktivitäten kurz geschildert:

On Thursday, the 21st May – the 10th birthday of FRONTEX – activists fighting for the freedom of movement gathered in Rabat in order to protest against Fortress Europe. In the framework of the international ANTI-FRONTEX action days (see the call-out here: http://migracja.noblogs.org/english/) we joined the actions which were rganised by activists in Warszawa (Poland), London (Britain), Madrid and Barcelona (Spain).

We met in the African Cultural Centre in Rabat (Agdal) in order to scandalize the lethal politics of the EU and its agency FRONTEX. The speakers underlined that FRONTEX represents a strong securatisation of migration policy which is the reason for thousands of deaths at the European borders. We agreed that the European Union is conducting a war against migrants, but unfortunately, African leaders are accomplices in this inhuman policy.

In the afternoon, we went to the representation of the EU in Morocco, in the Ryad neighbourhood. In front of the entence we protested with some strong slogans. Half an hour of “FRONTEX – murderers”, “FRONTEX – criminals” and “Open the borders – let us pass” had some effect: some responsibles came out to talk to us. Although we explained the relations between migration and the exploitation of Africa by Europe well enough the EU representatives answered with empty phrases and lies. Which is why we will continue to struggle, against FRONTEX, and for the freedom of movement!

We send our greetings to all the others who protested in different cities. Stop the War against Migrants!
