‘Solidarity Messages for those in Transit’ – Alarm Phone video project!

‘Solidarity Messages for those in Transit’ is a video project that
emerged through the WatchTheMed Alarm Phone network. It aims 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. Through the videos,
survivors of the border regime who reached their desired destinations
and people still on the move, speak directly to the many thousands who
are forced onto dangerous migration routes or into inhumane conditions
in Libya and elsewhere, to those who risk their lives when escaping via
the sea, and to those who face oppression and the threat of forced
deportation after arriving in Europe. 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. Some of the videos’ themes include ‘Safety at Sea’,
‘Fingerprints and the Dublin Regulation’, ‘Warnings against Frontex’ and
‘Asylum and Detention’. The first three videos about the fingerprint
issue have been released in Somali, Amharic and Tigrinya, with English
as the subtitle. 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.
