Focus on migrant defenders
Tunisia is no longer a safe country for African migrants, according to the many migrants who are currently stranded in the country.
The transnational project Alarme Phone Sahara (APS), invites you to a hybrid conference in Niamey (Niger) on 27 and 28 February 2023, in order to launch with you a campaign for the substantive revision of the Nigerien law on migrant smuggling "2015-36". This law serves primarily the interest of the European Union in its ambition to stop as many migrants as possible on their way to the North. It is therefore also partly responsible for the many violations of the rights of people on the move across the desert.
Transnational Conference in Niamey, NIGER
In hybrid format (Presential and Online - Languages: FR/ENG)
27 and 28 February 2023
Between 8th and 21st of October 2022, at least 1964 people from various countries were deported from Algeria to Niger. The number of people deported since the beginning of 2022 is now at least 19069.
The Alarme Phone Sahara team from Assamaka went to "Point Zero" with their tricycle to assist the deportees, especially the sick, injured and weakened, to get to the village of Assamaka.
In #Munich Sierra Leonean refugees have been protesting since 18th of October 2021 against the Bavarian authorities' plan to deport them. The Bavarian authorities are seeking traveling documents from the Sierra Leonean authorities, among other things through so-called identification hearings. The protest has so far succeeded in preventing the Bavarian authorities from implementing their plans to deport many people to Sierra Leone as planned.
However, the authorities have so far categorically refused to give the people concerned legal residence and thus access to work and future prospects.
The struggle of Sierra Leonean refugees against deportation and for the right to stay therefore needs strong solidarity.
Last but not least, as Alarme Phone Sahara, we would like to remind you that there are also many refugees from Sierra Leone among those who are travelling in life-threatening conditions on the Sahel-Sahara routes, who are stuck in precarious conditions in places like Agadez in Niger, and who have often been deported from Algeria to Niger under brutal conditions.
A delegation of Alarme Phone Sahara visited the Sierra Leonean refugees in Munich on 26th of June at their protest camp and we want to express our solidarity with their struggle.
