The right to basic education does not appear to apply in the Spanish enclave of Melilla in northern Africa. But some determined children are hopeful that their loud voices will be heard.
Despite being born and raised in Melilla, these children of migrants mainly from Morocco, are not being allowed to go to school. “Because we don’t have papers”, says a young girl. So, she and her friends have been protesting every single day since the start of the school term in September of 2017, demanding that their right to education be honoured.
Will their demands be met some day? They will be back every day till that time.
