The Detention System for Migrants is Causing Unnecessary Suffering!

The Detention System for Migrants causing unnecessary suffering, Malta | babelmedA Press Conference will take place on Saturday 19th December at City Gate Valletta, Malta to start at 10:45am.

Be there to show your stance in favour of a more humane and just policy!

While for many Christmas is a time for celebration, for the hundreds of persons inside the Detention Centres it is just another period of suffering caused by this inhumane policy. People’s liberty is being arbitrarily taken away when they are locked away for up to 18 months in small spaces, with lack of hygiene, limited access to medical care, lack of fresh air and complete uncertainty about their situation and their future.

6 NGOs (Moviment Graffitti, Migrants’ Solidarity Movement, Jesuit Refugee Service, Third World Group, Kopin and Moviment Azzjoni Xellug), will be holding a symbolic activity in Valletta. They will re-create a symbolic detention centres in which activists will sleep in solidarity with the persons inside the detention centres. At 10:45am, all those who are critical of this detention policy are being invited to a Press Conference during which the NGOs will explain why this policy is unnecessary and unjust.
