How The Sahara is Becoming Europe’s Southern Border | Immigration

Aug 9, 2023 | People, Social, Videos

An ancient Saharan city that once served as a bustling hub for travelers crossing between West Africa and the Mediterranean has been shaken to its core by recent migration policies. Following pressure from Brussels and substantial payments, the government of Niger has officially prohibited the transport of migrants, leaving thousands of smugglers unemployed and triggering widespread arrests.
Now, filmmakers offer an intimate look at the fallout from these events in Sahara, a three-part documentary series that takes viewers across the vast desert, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea. With journalist Bram Vermeulen as your guide, you’ll witness the hidden world of slavery, uncover human trafficking networks, and explore the often-dangerous realities of life in one of the world’s most unforgiving regions. With each episode, you’ll experience the heat and desperation of migrants, learn more about the ongoing issue of advancing jihadism, and meet the locals who call this land their home.
