NUMBER 9 – Stop the violence at the borders is a campaign in collaboration with GADEM, AMDH, FMAS, ALECMA and APDHA to denounce the daily and systematic repression of migrants by Moroccan authorities as well as the implication of Spanish authorities in the crimes perpetrated against migrants at the borders of Melilla; to call for the end of violence and violations of human rights in the north of Morocco; and to demand an official investigation into the circumstances of the death of Nke Clément Patrick and the other migrants deceased in the surroundings of the enclaves. The campaign is created in the memory of Clément, who passed away as a result of wounds inflicted during an unparalleled repression by Spanish and Moroccan forces.
The campaign was created together with a note, which has been prepared on the basis of the testimonies collected with ALECMA during the field mission in the border with Spain. In the note you can find other elements which are collected by AMDH and interviews realized by GADEM with migrant victims of the 11 March repressions which came to heal in Rabat. Read the full note.
