The situation of refugees in Libya is unbearable: Migrants are detained in camps that the German embassy had in 2017 compared to as a concentration camps with Torture and sexual violence as the order of the day.
Although the situation outside the camps appears to be better, Migrants from sub-Saharan Africa continue to experience racism and to struggle for their daily survival. Even those who are been recgnised by the UN as Refugees are living in squalor on the streets.
While refugees in Libya organize themselves to demand for their right to protection under harsh conditions in Libya, the EU turns has virtually turned a deaf ear as they continue with their tradition to criminalize refugees, enforce massive deportation with expansion of the Fortress Europe.
