Solidarity Messages for those in Transit

These videos aim to reach travellers along their migratory trajectories, in order to support them when they navigate the many border obstacles and traps that the EU and its member states have erected in their paths. The videos were shot in Germany and Italy, and share the insights of several people who survived the EU border regime and continue to resist it. Based on their lived experiences, they offer information, warnings, support and encouragement. While we face a time of repression in the aftermath of the long summer of migration, there are still cracks in the system and we hope that these videos will be spread widely, moving alongside those who travel on despite Europe’s desire to deter. Please help and share the videos!

To be spread on social media! A small version for whats app exists and can be sent. Please write a message if you want to help spreading it. Our contact: swarming@welcome-united.org.
