Storming Spain's Razor-Wire Fence: Europe Or Die

Since 2000, more than 27,000 migrants and refugees have died attempting the perilous journey to Europe. With an unprecedented number of people breaking through its heavily barricaded borders in 2014, the EU continues to fortify its frontiers.

VICE News presents Europe or Die, a new four-part series that documents the efforts of those risking their lives to reach Europe, and the forces tasked to keep them out.

In episode one of our series, VICE News correspondent Milène Larsson travels to the border between Morocco and Spain, where West Africans in their thousands storm the razor-wire-clad fences. Many are beaten back by border police or illegally returned.

  1. This NOT the illegal alien’s fault. It is the fault of the U.N., The E.U., and arse kissing national leaders that refuse to stray from NWO agendas. A handful control the minds of 6.5 Billion!

  2. An our government in the US is fighting our president for fighting to get a border wall put up.Look at all the other country’s that’s got border fence,s up an having trouble demanding to come into their Country.its a disaster for these country’s an it will be a disaster for the US also.

  3. Its hard to believe that this is real. Not to say we should let them in or something. Borders are a good thing

  4. I would think that those african men can help entertain European women, I heard that women in Europe are suffering from the lak of the the European man’s libido.

  5. Freedom is the most precious thing on Earth I cherish and appreciate mine everyday never take life for granted

  6. All Africans should go to Israel. They give $4000 per month for African refugees plus a free house if you don’t mind working a Job part time.

    Go to Israel! Life is good here! Shalom

  7. It’s not milk n honey as you think.stay back home .the migrants here in Europe have to compete with machines in the factories to pay rent otherwise freeze in the cold.

  8. And EU is not condemning people that illegally scales the wall, another one-sided observation out of europe long lasting effect of white guilt, such a sad contracdicting fate

  9. All of you are being racist and ridiculous. They ALL have a right to seek asylum. Also, if your government was corrupt and you had no food or money, would you really take up arms against them? No. You would flee to the nearest place that you could find freedom.
    They’re not terrorists, or aliens, or invaders, they’re people. Treat them like it.

  10. If every fence links had razors in between trust me they wouldn’t climb it might just drop off their fingers

  11. West Africa acts like zombies , ..
    Never see east Africans trying this crap…

  12. Question is would those countries that these migrants come from would they give Europeans and the Western World the same common courtesy of allowing so many millions of people to come to their land and take advantage of every aspect of their country getting free everything. My personal belief is that every country in Europe should have a population for migration limit as in if there is 96 million Europeans in your country you can only allow let’s say a quarter of a million maybe 250000 refugees. After they would receive Medical Care a modest education they would be fed and housed for approximately a year they would be then sent back to where they came from because in all reality it is not the responsibility of Europe to help the world because the world decided long ago that it will be poor and not try to make a climb in their civilization if it’s that time for a certain Villas ation to fail wither and die so be it but it’s not the responsibility of Europe to take in a failing dying civilization and try to rescue it all in the same time of costing its own civilization a turn for the worst and possibly an Extinction event for the European people. If I was a politician in Europe the first thing I would do is say goodbye to the European Union then I would make it illegal for migrants to come to my country and if anyone would make an attempt to come to my country they would be persecuted for coming to my country possibly ending in death. Sorry it is not my responsibility to help people that have already decided that they’re going to fail

  13. I find it strange, how you describe it as if these poor people were suffering some injustice. If it weren’t for you to promote them on video, they bend you over and pass around.

  14. Morocco police should not mistreat the immigrants coz they seem to forget tht they r AFRICANS not matter what happens.jst heard a woman speaking out to be addressed by her boss as "slave" so bad for an african to tell a fellow african shame on the all who do so👎

  15. Enough of European law …let them live and fight in their country if they want better life and freedom
