“Defend Europe”, go home!
Call from the North African collective against racist ship C- Star

Various Authors - Autores varios - Auteurs divers- AAVV-d.a.


The ship C-Star chartered by the European far-right campaign Defend Europe left Djibouti on the 7th of July 2017 for a crusade across the Mediterranean. What are the goals of these fascist organizations? To bring the migrants back to Libyan coast, where many of them are already held in inhumane conditions; to hinder the activities of NGOs and relief operations, highly endangering the lives of the travelers; and of course to achieve a noisy communication campaign.

Their discourse is infused with racist ideology and paranoid delirium, behind the humanitarian screen of pretending to save migrants from drowning; according to them Europe should be protected from the “invasion”, the “tidal wave of massive immigration”, while Europe is locking itself behind its walls, is restricting the access to visas through degrading processes, and is welcoming or rather tolerating only a small number of refugees on its territory… They try to defy those who cannot have the same freedom of movement or resources with their “Stay at Home” banners.

That’s why we send back to them their slogan: « Defend Europe, Go Home! You are not welcome here! » We call for a massive mobilization to stop them from mooring, entering territorial waters, dealing or communicating with the crew: civil society, everyone in charge, sailors, coastgards, all sail ships’ captains, every party concerned in North Africa. The ship is dangerously approaching Libyan and Tunisian coasts. In Greece, Cyprus, Sicilia or Egypt, anti-racists groups and citizens already have stopped them from mooring and debunked their propaganda! Let’s do the same!

« Defend Europe », go home !
