13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
GOUROUGOU

Every day hundreds of immigrants mainly from sub-Saharan Africa, survive in harsh conditions, hidden away in improvised camps of plastic, camouflaging in the beautiful natural environment of pine forest and rocks of Mount Gourougou, trying to avoid being located by Moroccan security forces, and try to circumvent the three consecutive metal barriers of about five km. in length and over eight meters high, equiped with concertina wire with -knives sharp-, separating and hinder the ultimate goal of achieving the European border city of Melilla, to comply with the dream and the right of every human being in pursuit of a dignified life, egalitarian and freedom of movement.
