Debate - Humanity lost at sea: The regularity of deaths in the Mediterranean

In the first four months of 2015, 1,770 Africans and Asians drowned on their way to Europe. With the death toll in the Mediterranean rising by the thousands, the European Union has showed once again that it is ready to pay the price of lives lost at sea in order to maintain the myth of sovereignty over its borders.

REINFORM cordially invites you to a discussion over the human rights cost of the EU closing the gates to unwanted outsiders, and the fair distribution of refugees in the European Union.

April movement movies

This month we are showing movies that are dedicated to break the silence imposed by official histories and/ or give voice to the movements that organize and fight against injustice and inequality. On April 9th, we start with Shadow Play. Shadow Play is an account of a hidden chapter of Indonesia’s history, the 1965-66 massacres that gave birth to General Suharto’s New Order in Indonesia.
