“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. The second series contains three videos in which survivors of sea journeys pass on advice on Rescue at Sea, spoken in Amharic, Somali, Oromo and Madinka, with English subtitles.”
