Mali: Stop Cigem, an EU-outpost watchtower of „Migration Management“

On October 6th 2008, the European Union will open a Centre for Migration in Bamako, the capital of Mali. AME* has clearly analysed that the “Centre d?Information et de Gestion des Migrations” (Cigem) aims at “controlling migratory flows in order to hinder, deter and to discourage potential migrants“. The center is part of the new EU policy, explained in the 'European pact on immigration and asylum' which EU governments want to force African leaders to accept at the second EU-Africa-summit on Migration and Development in October in Paris.
