Spain Becomes New Target for Migrants

Spain Becomes New Target for Migrants

Although the number of migrants making their way across the Mediterranean to Europe has fallen drastically, the preferred overseas route has now moved westward to the strait between Morocco and Spain. Now Rome, Madrid and North African countries are battling to find a solution.

Across the strait, in Spain, the consequences are coming into view: Last Saturday, on the beach at Zahora, near Cape Trafalgar, about 50 refugees sprinted among the nearly naked swimmers and nudists as their wooden boat reached the coast. There was an uproar on the beach and some of the vacationers filmed the scene. The images, which were posted on the internet soon after, show the collision between two worlds.

Melilla

Europe's most fortified border is in Africa

On a wedge of land at the northern tip of the African continent lies a little piece of Europe. The city of Melilla is one of two Spanish enclaves in Morocco, a gateway to Europe in North Africa, and as such – it is one of the most heavily fortified borders in the world. Johnny Harris traveled to this corner of the world to report on the African migrants who try to make the dangerous crossing over the border and into Europe. And the political climate that seeks to keep them on the other side of the fence.

RE-EUROPEIZING EUROPE

RE-EUROPEIZING EUROPE

In the scholar arena of political studies, the notion of Populism seems clear. It is generally used when it comes to defining either political regimes headed by strong leaders who pretend to represent ‘the people’ as the case of Peron in Argentina, Hugo Chavez in Venezuela and other leaders from different countries. Also, the political discourse, particularly of the far-right, populism arises during times of economic difficulty, as it is the case in several European countries like France, Austria, Hungary, The Netherlands or the independence movement of Catalonia in Spain. When the subjects who speak are the political actors, it is observed that the term ‘populist’ is used by both the right and the left, to stigmatize the opponent, or to self-defend against adverse stigmatization.

For the right-wing, the left is populist because it manipulates the working and less fortunate classes

for the left-wing, the right is populist because it manipulates the middle classes with discourses seeking to generate the most primitive emotion: the fear.

What Orbán’s Third Win Could Mean for Europe

With his strong election victory on Sunday, Hungary’s Viktor Orbán exceeded all expectations. What will the party’s third win mean for Europe?

In an extremely divisive campaign, Orbán essentially focused on one single issule, warning against Hungary’s “downfall” at the hands of “immigrants.”
cheering supporters, who could be heard shouting a chant usually associated with right-wing extremists or radical football fans: “Ria, ria, Hungaria.”
Everyone in Hungary knows that he’s corrupt and that he governs poorly, and yet many people still vote for him because they consider it important that he protects them from immigrants and minorities like the Roma.
