As the recent demonstrations of Sudanese refugees in Agadez and Niamey have shown, evacuation to Niger is not a satisfactory solution for refugees seeking a safe life.

The misery and suffering of refugees who are imprisoned, tortured, raped and sometimes even murdered in Libya are a direct consequence of the border regime of European states.

And these same European states now seek to get rid of their responsibility for the lives of refugees by leaving them in Niger, where even the majority of Niger's citizens live in total precariousness.
