Stop slavery in Libya, The Hague, 18 December


This 24 November 2017 video is called The football world did not remain silent on slave trade in Libya.

From In-EUmanity Amsterdam and No Border Network in the Netherlands:

Monday 18 December 2017 14:00 till 16:00

Europahuis, Korte Vijverberg 5/6 2513 AB The Hague

Stop Europe Funding Slavery in Libya: Stop Wars on Migrants

We are going to organize action days against European funding of atrocities in Libya.

In Libya, everyday migrants are imprisoned in private detention centers, tortured and sold as slaves. They suffer extreme exploitation and violence.

Europe [rather: the European Union] is funding the expansion of these detention centers. Meanwhile by implementing the Malta agreement, Europe is training and technically supplying the Libyan “coastguard” to carry out illegal refoulements that they call “rescue operations”.

We stand up against the criminal regime of Fortress Europe.

We demand the immediate cessation of the funding of the Libyan torturers.

End slavery and detention in Libya.

Free passage, healthcare and protection to all the victims of torture and trafficking.

Common Day of Action on the 18th of December, International Day of Migrants

A video of the demonstration is here. One of the speeches is here.
