TEAR DOWN THE BORDERS OF FORTRESS EUROPE

Contribution for the exhibition MagiC Carpets Landed 2021
Kaunas, Lithuania
Opening: November 5th 2021

As long as people are drowning and get killed in front of the European borders, we will not stay silent!

By supporting the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, also known as Frontex, the European Union is directly responsible for the violation of human rights, illegal push-back actions and the deaths of thousands.
Therefore we say: FUCK FRONTEX and every system that helps making the Mediterranean Sea one of the biggest mass graves of our time. The European Union has the responsibility to open their borders and offer security to all people who are fleeing from death, war, poverty and hunger.
We will continue to spread these words!

NO ONE IS FREE UNTIL WE ARE ALL FREE

ALL POWER TO ALL THE PEOPLE
