Europe Or Die (Full Documentary)

13 May 2015

Since 2000, more than 27,000 migrants and refugees have died attempting the perilous journey to Europe. With an unprecedented number of people breaking through its heavily barricaded borders in 2014, the EU continues to fortify its frontiers.

VICE News presents Europe or Die, a new four-part series that documents the efforts of those risking their lives to reach Europe, and the forces tasked to keep them out.

Episode 1 – Storming Spain‘s Razor-Wire Fence: VICE News correspondent Milène Larsson travels to the border between Morocco and Spain, where West Africans in their thousands storm the razor-wire-clad fences. Many are beaten back by border police or illegally returned.

Episode 2 – Death Boats to Greece: VICE News correspondent Milène Larsson travels to the border between Greece and Turkey, where Syrian and Afghan refugees are paying large sums of money to take “death boats” to Greece, and visits the border between Greece and Turkey to find out what happens to the many migrants who perish while attempting to cross Greece’s dangerous Evros river.

Episode 3 – Trapped In Bulgaria: VICE News correspondent Milène Larsson visits Bulgaria to see Europe’s newest border fence and speaks to Syrians who, because of the EU’s Dublin Regulation, are trapped in one of Europe’s poorest countries.

Episode 4 – Italy’s Mediterranean Mass Grave: VICE News correspondent Milène Larsson arrives in Italy as the only extensive search and rescue mission in the Mediterranean is replaced with a border surveillance mission, effectively leaving thousands of desperate migrants adrift in the sea.

Serbia‘s Vucic hits out at Hungarian migrant fence

Friday 19th June 2015

SERBIAN President Aleksandar Vucic said he was “shocked and surprised” yesterday by Hungary’s plan to build a border fence against immigrants.

Walls and fences” were not the solution, Mr Vucic said, to the crisis that has seen tens of thousands of migrants from the Middle East and Africa cross the western Balkans, trying to reach the European Union as they flee wars and poverty in their home countries.

“We don’t know what this is all about,” Mr Vukic said. “We are not guilty and all of a sudden a wall is to be built.”

He added: “We don’t want to live in an Auschwitz.”

Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto claimed on Wednesday that the 13-foot-high fence along the 109-mile southern border with Serbia would not contravene any of Hungary’s international legal obligations.

But the European Union said it did not promote the use of fences and encouraged its member states to use alternative measures.

“We have only recently taken down walls in Europe. We should not be putting them up,” said EU spokeswoman Natasha Bertaud.

Ms Bertaud is right in this. However, she (or her predecessors in the European Union bureaucracy) should say that as well to the right wing government in Spain, with their razor wire fences wounding immigrants trying to climb them. And this should have been said to the previous government in Greece with their anti-refugee wall along the Turkish border too.

Hungary’s right-wing government has been on an anti-immigrant campaign, claiming that Muslims threaten Europe’s Christians.

Human rights abuses are the key driving factor behind migrant crisis in the Mediterranean: Human Rights Watch: here.
