We are asylum seekers, refugees, undocumented migrants, migrants from many European countries, we are Europeans with a “migration background”, we are all those who have no full priviledge of citizenship, but also citizens who share a common anger against the racist EU migration policy.
We decided to organize a European caravan which will go from the largest number of European countries towards Brussels (Belgium), where the European institutions are settled. Showing that we don’t respect the borders they impose us, holding us prisonners of the states borders and in the lagers, we will exercise our basic right of freedom of movement and adress our demands directly where the decisions come from.
We have a dream:
Freedom of movement and of residence for all asylum seekers
Stop the Dublin trap and the obligatory residence in Lagers throughout Europe
Permanent documents without criteria (not depending on working contracts or individual state prosecution)
Stop the imprisonment and deportation of migrants
Same working conditions for all
Same political, social and cultural rights for all: right to study and to work
Stop the European imperialist policies: no more free trade treaties and NATOwars
Abolish Frontex, Eurosur and other anti-migration policies and measures
Join us !
Starting in may 2014 with the EU Parliament elections: The caravan/march will start as common transnational project at the end of May in Strassbourg, the march will last about 3-4 weeks from Strasbourg to Brussels.
Central action in Brussels to adress the Summit: The transnational march will end in Brussels with massive protests at the EU-summit on migration policy, the 26th and 27th of June 2014. The arrival in Brussels will be one week before the summit, around the 21st and 22nd of June, we will have a week of actions in the city of Brussels to make them aware of our anger.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE !
Decentralised actions: refugees and migrants unite, wherever you are! Local activities and decentralized actions already started on the 18th of December 2013, for the international day of migrants and refugees against racism : actions have been taken all over Europe in the same time and with the same demands (see our web blog : http://freedomnotfrontex.noblogs.org/) Also, decentralized actions and marches will start already in May in reference to the European paerliament elections. All activities should come together in Strasbourg to start the common march (the exact date still has to be confirmed). Wherever you are, take action in solidarity with European refugees and migrants, feel free to initiate creative and local actions !
