For member states, 'migrants', those who 'have no right' to live in the EU, can be put to death and no one is held responsible.On 3 October 2023, we want to remember those innocent deaths and the responsibilities of governments and the European Commission in determining the conditions for the slaughter to continue.Join us to pay tribute to the victims of the massacres at the EU borders and to denounce those responsible.On Tuesday 3 October, from 17:00 to 18:00, meet us at the Schuman rond-point (on the esplanade between the European Commission and the Council-Juste Lipse) for a moment of recollection in honour of the victims.
