Deportations are an important part of EUrope’s increasingly repressive and inhumane border and migration policies. The EU pushes member states to increase the number of deportations, with EU border guard agency Frontex taking a leading role. Every month tens of thousands of people on the move receive a deportation order, being forced to return to danger, violence, repression, poverty and/or hunger. Often deportations are preceded by raids and/or (lengthy) detentions. There have been many cases of deported people being detained, tortured and murdered after their forced returns.

Deportations take place via both regular scheduled flights and specially hired charter flights. Dutch airline Corendon is an increasingly important player in the second field. Deportation Alarm! in Berlin reports that on average 1-3 times a month a Corendon plane deports people on the move from various airfields in Germany to countries as Tunisia, Ghana, Egypt, Armenia and Albania. Corendon has also been hired by the UK to deport people to Albania and Romania. And in the past Israel hired Corendon planes to deport people on the move to South Sudan.

Europe is built on a history of colonialism, slavery, imperialism, extractivism and exploitation that continues today. Modern borders are colonial and racist constructs, and the EU’s border policies institutionalise this violence, injustice and inequality. The EU has no right to stop people at its borders or to deport people. Stop all deportations!

Stop the War on Migrants starts a new campaign to stop Corendon’s profiteering of deporting people, as part of the ongoing ‘Abolish Frontex’ campaign. Join us on World Refugee Day (20 June) for the kick-off at the Corendon Hotel in Amsterdam to protest the company’s complicity in EUrope’s racist and violent border regime. We will have banners, noise and flyers to inform hotel guests and others of Corendon’s scandalous practices.
