  • It has been a week since the day that the murderers of ISIS began their attack. The surrounding area has been evacuated completely. 160.000 people have abandoned the region from Rozava provinence and lower. Dead band. Every inch of the western Turkey-Syria borderline has starved life. It is a No man’s land. Just a single dot is left alive. It is a ray of light and struggle surrounded by the thickest darkness. It is a ray of light. The barricades of Kobani.

Video of the Week

When migrants tried to jump the fence in Melilla on 15/10/2014, Spanish police and auxiliary forces treated them with particular brutality. Almost all of the migrants were deported from Spain absolutely illegally. Also dozens of injured migrants were deported and handed over to the Moroccan armed forces.

In the video we can see what happened that day. A special focus is placed on Danny from Cameroon, aged 23, who was one of the victims. We have received contradictory information and do not know whether he is dead or alive.
