The Human Cost of Fortress Europe
I posted an earlier blog that ended with a common saying of West Africans endeavouring to get to The Canaries , Barca ou Barsakh (Barcelona or Death), and sadly and tragically for many it is indeed the latter .
The BBC reports that about 6,000 African migrants have died or gone missing on the sea journey to the Canary Islands in 2006 according to Spanish immigration officials.
Say it loud , say it clear , workers of the world are welcome here !!
