On April 23rd-24th, several protests occurred in Germany and Italy against border closures in the European Union (EU). More than 50,000 people are stuck in Greece, and many more in Turkey and Northern Africa as a result of EU border policies and the creation of what activists call Fortress Europe. The “Over The Fortress” campaign is now mobilizing to protest against Fortress Europe and the deal between the EU and Turkey on May 1st in Rome. On May 14th, there will be a worldwide day of action.
