two migrants killed in the south border

 

We, the illegal as they call us, the one that have no voice, swear by our dignity (because, although they kill us we still have our dignity as human beings) that we witnessed how our comrades have been hit until death, that the Spanish cops opened up the little door and threw the two corpses away towards Morocco as if they were dogs.

 

And we now that we will return to the gate. Many of us are escaping from hunger and war, but we are not afraid: although all the officials leave us alone, we know that we are human beings and that we did not do anything, that the murderers are not among us, and that at least god

knows all this.

 

We ask all social organizations to join this call for justice. We ask all organizations that witnessed the facts to denounce them. We demand from the Spanish government to respect art. 157 of the immigration law.

 

We demand from the Spanish government the end of torture at the border in Ceuta and Melilla.

lots of people in morocco are dreaming of another life in europe, believing they will get rich and wealthy over here.

 

mostly reality turns out to be slightly different
