No Borders Maroc
The external european border and ways of fighting it
As a result of the externalization of Europe’s borders, thousands of migrants are stuck in northern Morocco and live in harsh conditions while trying to cross the Mediterranean or the border fences of the spanish exclaves Ceuta and Melilla. The EU pays Morocco as part of the European Neighbourhood Policy to protect Fortress Europe by all means, condoning and incrementing the vast violations of fundamental rights and the deadly violence this imposes on those seeking to cross.
No Borders Morocco is a loose network of activists with different backgrounds, based in/between Morocco and Europe. We want to draw attention to how the European Union causes and finances suffering, violence and political repression at its borders (Spain) and in its buffer zone (Morocco) and we try to directly support those affected.
We aim at organizing according to the principles of non- hierarchy, anti-racism, solidarity and diversity of actions.
On this event we want to inform about the current situation of migrants in Morocco in combination with EU border politics and discuss different strategies of attacking these borders with you.
