Join us at the Italian Consulate in Toronto on April 29th, at 1:15pm, at 136 Beverly Street (Dundas & Beverly) to insist no more migrant deaths!

More than 1,750 migrants have died since January 2015 trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea to find dignity and safety in Europe. European Union border policies shut out poor and racialized migrants, particularly Eritreans, Somalis, and Libyans, forcing them to get on dangerous boats to cross the water. At the same time, funding for search and rescue operations has been cut, imposing a death sentence on many that are making their way to Europe. EU countries (former and current colonial powers) occupy much of North and Central Africa, either through military presence or with EU Border Agency Frontex’s land operations. Their actions are murdering thousands well before they can get on ships to cross in to Europe.
