Solidarity Messages for those in Transit
The following videos were made in 2017 and were filmed in Germany and Italy. They tell of the experiences of several people who have survived the flight by boat across the Mediterranean and the EU border regime and continue to resist it. Based on their own experiences, they offer information, warnings, support and encouragement. We hope that these videos will be shared widely.
