(en) [Spain] Cenetistas in the caravan Opening Borders By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 12 Oct 2017 09:23:27 +0300

* CNT members participated in the Abrindo Fronteiras caravan that went to Melilla to denounce the situation of the undocumented. ---- * Two companions and a companion share their experience. ---- The caravan Abrindo Fronteiras, which last July set out to make people's freedom of movement visible, was attended by some of our affiliates and affiliates. It also had local unions that supported the initiative or gave informative coverage to this campaign. The caravan that included hundreds of activists from various groups, mostly from the Basque Country, also had the assistance of activists from Castila and León, Catalonia, Comunidad Valenciana and Madrid. Together they went to the south to join with more participants of Andalusia and in a showy cast they passed through the hot destinations where the immigrants who cross the strait transit.

From the firing range of the Bardenas in Navarre, through Madrid, Seville, Algeciras, Malaga, etc., there were actions and activities demanding to consider the forgotten human aspect of those who suffer at the borders. The caravan denounced in its passage the deportations that are happening at a rapid pace, the restriction of freedoms and the bad treatments that take place in the internment centers. The campaign warned of the inhuman conditions of the inmates and inmates in the CIE[center of internment]of Algeciras where countless institutional and social organizations are reported. In addition they showed the terrible conditions of women messengers in the atypical trade that takes place in the border between Spain and Morocco, where this economic activity is part of daily life and where working conditions are extremely exploitative. To finalize the trip they met in the greenhouses of Almeria, where it could not be otherwise, before the situation in which migrant workers live.

The CNT as a trade union organization can not but be sensitive to the atrocities suffered by the working class. Much work remains to be done to improve the decent working and living conditions for these disinherited people who are trying to save their lives by endangering themselves and by offering themselves to the illegal or illegal deals that make them slaves of the first world.

We thank the compas who had the detail of transmitting their experience, especially since they were able to do so with so few characters.

Rafa, from the Regional Federation Sul-Villaverde: "From the caravan we bring a more complete view of how migrants live on their trip to Europe. Sometimes we focus on the concrete fact of the fence, the jumps, but there is a whole network of problems and damages that suffer and sometimes are more visible, like the minors or the loaders. The caravan is an action and an experience that benefits us all in every local job we do afterwards. "

Bea, of the Trade Union of Graphic Arts, Communication and Spectacles of Madrid: "The actions of denunciation, observation and coexistence of the caravan have been effective to understand the reality of the southern border, a cruel and complex reality built on a context of institutional, racist violence and sexist where exploitation is the norm. Another consequence is a specialized system of generating poverty and exclusion and repressing its own victims. "

Carlos, of the Union of Various Offices of the CNT-Málaga: "... It also served to create networks between us and for many companions to approach the reality of the border, while at the same time carrying out very positive concrete actions regarding the rights of the loaders or the minors not accompanied. The general logistics of the caravan was very effective. As aspects to be improved it would highlight the scarce or almost null confluence with the social movements of the other side of the border. We can not fight the frontier with effectiveness if we do not fight along with the social movements of the Rif, of the whole Maghreb, of the Sahara, and I would say, of all Africa ... "
