Gustavo Petro expresses his solidarity with the "massacres" during the incursion into the Melilla fence

June 26 (EUROPA PRESS) –

The elected president of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, has expressed his “solidarity” with the families of the people “massacred” at the Melilla fence, referring to the at least 27 deaths on Friday due to the intervention of the Moroccan security forces in front of some 2,000 migrants who tried to break through the border fence by force.

“My solidarity with all the African peoples who fight against hunger and fight for Life. My solidarity with the families of the men and women massacred in Melilla,” Petro pointed out through his Twitter account.

The Colombian leader has described what happened as “barbaric” and has linked the events to the “climate crisis” causing “hunger and exoduses.” “Exoduses will incite border walls with machine gun nests and the possibility of a global 1933,” he added.

For Petro, “humanity must unite against barbarism.” “The solution to the climate crisis and its potential destruction of humanity implies profound changes in the way of producing,” she argued. “Colombia will be next to Life”, she has riveted.


At least 27 people according to NGOs, 23 according to sources from the authorities cited by the official Moroccan press, died due to the intervention of the Moroccan security forces during the attempt of more than 2,000 sub-Saharans to cross the Melilla fence last Friday.

More than a hundred people were injured, including dozens of police officers, although only 18 migrants and one police officer were hospitalized on Sunday, admitted to the Hassani Hospital and the Oujda University Hospital.
