8th Solidarity March: For Open Europe


Migrations caused by war, poverty, violence and other injustices have become part of our everyday lives. For years now, the European Union’s response to this migration phenomena has been to shut down its borders in order to reestablish Fortress Europe.

It is time to tear down these walls in order for Europe to become a safe heaven for everybody in accordance with its proclamated fundamental values! This is why Initiative “Welcome!” and Antifascist Network of Zagreb are organizing the 8th Solidarity march in support of refugees, but also for all those who are running away from social injustices.

The march will take place on noon of November 14th, 2015 at the Trg žrtava fašizma in Zagreb, proceed across Trg kralja Tomislav and finally end at the Trg Europe.

We have witnessed way too many cold, hungry and barefoot people who have been passing through Croatia and other European states. Too many people have died trying to cross over the Mediterranean in their attempts to reach Europe. The current humanitarian crisis in Europe is the result of the cynical relationship of the institutions of the European Union and EU governments that are the direct cause of the migrations thanks to their centralist practices. The shutting down of borders cannot be the response to the current crisis while at the same time some EU countries are trying to implement dangerous policies which also economically destabilise the areas hit by those same policies.

If you wish to live in humane and open Europe based on solidarity that offers the conditions for a dignified life for everybody, then join our solidarity march and express your support to refugees and disagreement with the current policies of European institutions and governments.

In solidarity,

Antifascist Network of Zagreb and "Welcome!" Initiative
