Storming Spain's Razor-Wire Fence: Europe Or Die

Since 2000, more than 27,000 migrants and refugees have died attempting the perilous journey to Europe. With an unprecedented number of people breaking through its heavily barricaded borders in 2014, the EU continues to fortify its frontiers.

VICE News presents Europe or Die, a new four-part series that documents the efforts of those risking their lives to reach Europe, and the forces tasked to keep them out.

In episode one of our series, VICE News correspondent Milène Larsson travels to the border between Morocco and Spain, where West Africans in their thousands storm the razor-wire-clad fences. Many are beaten back by border police or illegally returned.

  1. So scary with the giant flow of illegal immigrants around the world!
    The citizens of Western countries and Europe have so little number of their own children because it's so hard to provide good care for their children. But looks like now they'll have to pay for other countries' citizens.
    The world must figure out a better solution!

  2. The UN needs to be dismantled. Every country should have the right to stop invaders with whatever force that is necessary. The UN and its globalist agenda will destroy everything.

  3. Paraphrasing: "If your father isn't someone in Africa, you won't be someone in Africa". It is interesting how there is a continuum of social behaviors that go along with that gist communicated there. For instance, you could be born in the United States and have a father who was a lawyer, but if your father dies when you are young and your mother does not care for your basic legal protections, then you are much more likely to get screwed over later in life. Of course there is also the masquerade of patriarchal altruism that some religious groups do… often not giving a flying hoot about basic legal protections. But I guess some people and some groups have to resort to cultic behavior and abusive dominance in order to further their desires and dysfunctional agendas… Jim Jones style. Human rights? Constitutional rights? No- Alternative forms of altruism… secret altruism, like secret law and alternative facts… Stargate SG-1 style.

  4. They're only thing they are running from this economics they don't want to work they want to come to a country where they don't have to instill get paid they're nothing but losers Liars thieves Beggars rapists and murderers

  5. It’s like world war Z when they are climbing the fences it’s disgusting they should stay in their own countries and make their countries better not leave and destroy other countries

  6. Damn Europeans relax. The main reason a majority of these African countries are so distressed is because of the same colonization your European forefathers afflicted upon the simple, peaceful natives of the African continent.
    The white mans desire for mineral wealth has torn my continent apart. A majority of you privileged white folks fail to have empathy, you do not know how your so called 1st world countries continue to benefit from the intense exploitation of Africa.
