On the occasion of the June 20th - World Refugee Day, we want to point out on the difficult situation for refugees / migrants around the world. We are witnesses of the open war of the European governments against refugees / migrants.
Militarization of borders, fences and barbed wire, terror of the police against refugees / migrants, illegal deportations, abandoning the people in danger who are trying to reach European coasts, which turned the Mediterranean into a mass grave with thousands of victims, all these are the consequences of the catastrophic policies of European countries.
We remember women raped in war!
