Résume non exhaustif janvier 2017

La guerre contre les migrants menée par le Maroc et l’UE à la frontière Maroc/Espagne a fait en ce début d’année nettement plus de blessé(e)s ,mort(e)s et de disparu(e)s. Suite à la répression intense de la police marocaine dans les villes, les camps et les forets du Nord du Maroc beaucoup de migrant(e)s essayent dans la précipitation de traverser la frontière, ce qui amènent de graves accidents parfois mortels.

La police,l’armée,les frontières tuent !

Résumé non exhaustif

En ce mois de Novembre plusieurs migrant(e)s sont décédé(e)s noyé(e)s, lors de l’escalade des grillages, lors d’assault de la police ou des forces auxiliaires. La pression migratoire reste irrémédiablement présente, malgré la répression, les rafles, les déportations pour éloigner les migrant(e)s de la frontière Nord du Maroc. Les migrant(e)s cherchent de nouvelles voies pour atteindre l’Europe . Ces chemins deviennent de plus en plus dangereux, ce qui provoquent de plus en plus de décès. Heureusement certain(e)s réussissent à atteindre malgré tout leurs objectifs.

Destruction in Boukhalef

After the raids, deportations and murders from the first week of October, the Moroccan authorities continue to instill terror in the migrant communities.
The majority of attacks has so far been concentrated on Cassiago (Ceuta) and Nador (Melilla) but Saturday a week ago (10th of October), the police started destroying the camps and personal belongings of the migrants living in Tangier.
Following the big raids and deportations in July, the migrant communities which used to live in the squatted houses in Tangier found themselves in the streets. Due to their resilience, those Tangier residents built themselves a life in the forests and fields around Boukhalef, see the situation here.

On Saturday, 10th of October), the police came to the “Cameroonian forest” at the entrance of Boukhalef (next to Aswak Assalam, the big supermarket), and to the little Senegalese forests next to the airport. They destroyed the camps, burnt the modest sleeping spaces, arrested and deported people, and made life for migrants even worse.
Here are some pictures and videos, taken and filmed by migrant activists, which show the scope of destruction.
