A new report by Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) outlines the impact of precarious living conditions and widespread criminal and institutional violence on the health of undocumented sub-Saharan migrants trapped in Morocco on their way to Europe. According to the report, Morocco’s transformation, as a result of increasingly stringent border controls, from a country of transit to a forced destination for migrants heightens their vulnerability. The implementation of migration policies which undermine respect for human rights is having an impact on migrants’ health, which includes vulnerable groups, such as victims of sexual violence or human trafficking, who are not receiving specialized care and protection from the authorities.

On Jan. 10, 2009, tens of thousands of people in Guatemala City participated in a rally against violence. The rally is likely to raise awareness, as it was the Catholic Church calling for the march in Guatemala’s capital. The violence has reached such a level that the people are living in a state of fear, the cardinal of Guatemala City says. His statements are also supported by La Prensa, Guatemala’s most respected daily newspaper.

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is deeply concerned about the deterioration of the medical and humanitarian situation of sub-Saharan migrants in Morocco after the intensification of raids and mass expulsions carried out recently by Moroccan police forces. Hundreds of migrants, including women and children, were deported to the no-man’s-land at the border between Morocco and Algeria and abandoned there during the night without food and water. Police operations took place between Aug. 19 and Sept.
