Defend the rights of migrants, equalise relations and freedom of movement of people in the Mediterranean

The following is the final declaration from the conference: "Rethinking migrations: for free movement in the Mediterranean" which took place in in Tunis on 30th September and 1st October 2011

The Arab revolutions of spring 2011 have invited a reinvention of relations at the heart of the Mediterranean region.

Some associations and researchers from the global south and global north met in Tunis as part of a conference entitled "Rethinking migrations: for free movement in the Mediterranean".

The participants of this meeting agreed that the politics of the European Union, its member states and the states of the "rive Sud" (north African coast) have led to the closure of borders and has impeded the free movement of people, with disregard for the principles of international bodies regarding human rights guaranteeing freedom to leave all countries, including one's own country, and the right to return to your own country. These obstacles are furthermore in total contradiction with the official discourse of co-operation in this region.

Dale Farm wins reprive until Friday 23/09/11

Today, Monday 19th September, was the first day of the planned eviction of Dale Farm. The entrance to the site had been barricaded and travellers and activists gathered both inside and outside. Bailiffs were due to come onto the site at 8am, but did not appear til 3pm, when they entered the access road from the adjacent field to give a "final warning" about their health and safety concerns over the barricade, before leaving to heckles. Then around 4.30pm, news spread that a court application for an injunction had been successful.
