On June 20, there were about 7,000 wooden memorials on the beach of Scheveningen, as a pop-up monument to all the deceased. Commemoration events were also held in Greece (Lesbos and Ioannina), Romania (Timisoara), Poland (Katowice), Germany (Berlin), Portugal (Lisbon and Porto), England (London, Birmingham, Manchester, Cambridge, Newcastle) and Ireland (Dublin).
This campaign, supported by Het Actiefonds, was a huge success: at least ten thousand people came into contact with the campaign somewhere in the Netherlands. A very difficult and heavy subject, but at the same time a perfect momentum to inform people about the terrible European border policy. MiGreat received a lot of media attention and will continue their actions against violent pushbacks and other human rights violations of refugees and migrants.
No borders, no nations!
