The World Federation of Trade Unions strongly condemns the death of more than 40 refugees, 20 of them children, crossing the desert of northern Niger to Libya and probably to Europe.

These innocent people are added to the thousands of refugees who die in the land or sea to avoid the consequences of the wars generated by the imperialists, they are not accidents, they are crimes. Immigrants and refugees are forced into this position by the imperialist policies of NATO, the United States and the European Union, through their aggressiveness and intervention in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Mali, Yemen, etc., by the policies of the Multinationals and the plundering of the natural resources of the people in Africa and the Middle East, by the destruction and manipulation of the economies of the countries and finally by the inhuman policy of the European Union and Governments against migrant workers.

The World Federation of Trade Unions with its anti-imperialist and internationalist position and action struggles for the elimination of the aggressiveness against the people of North Africa and the Middle East, for the dissolution of NATO and for the utilization of the natural resources by the people for their own interests and for the popular development that will bring the reconstruction and the prosperity of the people.
