More than 50 African refugees have been massacred, hundreds injured in Spanish-Moroccan police confrontation at Melilla border. Many of whom came from Chad, Niger, Sudan and South Sudan, and would be considered to be Potential asylum seekers in line with International law. On Sunday evening, protests erupted across Spain against the massacre-in Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Bilbao, Badajoz, Cáceres, Seville, Granada, Cádiz, Mataró and Zaragoza.
Spain has two cities — Ceuta and Melilla — that are located within Morocco's geographic boundaries, i.e. in Africa. Should Spain ask for membership in the African Union as a result? A similar case might be made for France, which still controls the island of Mayotte off the coast of East Africa, as well as Réunion, which is further away but still linked to the African continent.
Moreover, Spain possesses two cities — Ceuta and Melilla — inside the geographic territory of Morocco, that is, in Africa. Should Spain therefore apply for membership with the African Union? We could use the same argument for France, which still rules the island of Mayotte, off the coast of East Africa, not to mention Réunion, a bitter further away but still susceptible to be associated to the African continent.
