Out Of Africa - No Way!
An evening of information, film, food & music based around the prevention of migration from Africa into Fortress Europe. We will be showing short films or slideshows and talks about the plight of migrants trying to enter the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla on the northern coast of Algerian, their fate if they are successful in making it over the three 6m high parallel fences, decorated with motion sensors, cameras and watchtowers, protecting these outposts of the 'promised land' of Europe. We will also be talking and showing a short film about the situation in Libya nad the Libyan involvement in Italy's 'push back' program, where refugees trying to cross the Mediterranean to Italy are forced back to the African coast, in contravention of numerous International treaties and agreements against the 'refoulement' of refugees and into a detention system condemned across the world.
All that and delicious African food and sounds. Entrance by donation (Cowley club members and guests only).
