Spain - Immigration - Sub-Saharan Illegal Immigrants

Spain - Immigration - Sub-Saharan Illegal Immigrants

31-year-old Zakaria Chouaib from Ghana has been travelling for five months across sub-Saharan Africa, trying to reach European soil. He is now hiding in the mountains near the Moroccan border town of Beni Enzar, next to the Spanish enclave of Melilla. Only days before, hundreds of other sub-Saharans jumped the razor wire fence in a simultaneous assault to enter Melilla. He has been deported four times to Algeria and reports to have been beaten and robbed every time by the Moroccan authorities, even when not resisting the arrest. His leg was broken and wrongly treated, leaving him partially crippled. It takes him ten days to walk back from the border, always hiding deep in the bush. Zakaria has lived and worked one year in Algeria and Libya, and another four in Morocco. He has left behind a wife and two children and dreams of living in the European countryside. |
