SYP’s 2014 Solidarity March throughout Spain

Marching as a sign of protest has served to empower those who are victims of injustice. Solidarity Youth Paths 2014 SOLIDARITY MARCH throughout Spain in the second fortnight of July 2014 means to side with the over 400 million children who are victims of slavery, with the over 1,600 million adults who are unemployed, with those millions of people worldwide who suffer exploitation…

We challenge every person aiming for a just society to take part in this initiative. If you cannot march with us, during those days you can support our march by carrying out local actions to raise awareness of the CAUSES of Child Slavery and Unemployment.  

We have already started Preliminary Actions in Spain over the course of 2013 year, during SYP’s summer camps in July in Spain and on 27th August in the streets of London: statues representing Child Slavery in front of the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square, a drama in front of St. Paul’s Cathedral: the testimony of Iqbal Masih’s life – a child slave who fought against child slavery, and statues standing for Aggressions to Youth in Leicester Square.

Indifference makes us accomplices!

Stop Violence at the Borders!

In Henry David Thoreau's essay: Resistance to Civil Government (Civil Disobedience), he says:
Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison…. – the only house in a slave State in which a free man can abide with honor.…

In the memory of Clement…

“It is the military police… and also the Spanish Guards… my brother, he has been beaten in front of me.”

“Our brothers die each day that is passing, Morocco watches in silence, Spain watches in silence. Each day that is passing, they (Spanish Civil Guards) are killing our brothers. It is inadmissible that Spain knows that… The journalists come here to take pictures, as you come to take pictures but nothing… But God is there.”

“The Spanish Guards can stop us and maybe they could repatriate us to our countries instead of taking us from inside and putting us outside with the Moroccans who kill us.”

“They should try to stop massacring us like bandits. We are humans, we all, we are humans.”

“They take your passport and they refuse to give it back to you.”

“It’s been 2 years that I’m not calling my family because they took everything… my phone, all my cards, my passport. They took everything. The money. They took everything.”

“His heart has stopped beating. He passed away.”

2014 SOLIDARITY MARCH: Preliminary Street Actions in London: 27 August

throughout Spain

A March to denounce the causes of Child Slavery and Unemployment 

"The world we live in, the world of the hungry... the world of the oppressed... this world of slaves... can only find the solution in solidarity" –Julián Gómez del Castillo– 

Not even a single child slave in the world! This is not one more problem. This is not mere sentimentality. The tragedy of child slavery is the glaring proof of the institutional dis-order there exists in the world.

Solidarity Youth Path has a permanent campaign against Hunger, Child Slavery and Unemployment and for next year has organised a March throughout Spain to denounce the causes of these evils; a march that will be accompanied by actions to be held in other parts of the world as well.
