World Refugee Day - 20 June

20 June each year is dedicated to raising awareness of the situation of refugees throughout the world.

About 43 million people have been obligated to left their original countries as consequence of violence, threats and persecution because of their nationality, religion, race, political ideology or social group membership. 

Movement Against Intolerance shares the complaint made by UNITED FOR INTERCULTURAL ACTION since 1993 about  the Fatal Realities of 'Fortress Europe'.

Since then, UNITED has been monitoring the deadly results of the building of 'Fortress Europe' by making a list of the refugees and migrants who have died in their attempt of entering Europe. About 16,264 people.

Over the Mediterranean Sea and the Strait of Gibraltar transit thousands of people each year and the resulting data are also terrible: At least 198 migrants died in 2011 in the Coasts of Andalusia.
