In Monte Gurugú, a pleasant environment of Mediterranean pine and monte, near the neighboring town of Nador, north of Morocco, live hundreds of sub-Saharan migrants who with improvised and clandestine camps make space their place of residence. They settled here after having crossed thousands of miles through the deserts of Niger and Algeria and suffered all kinds of abuses by mafias. This small and appetizing wild mountain becomes their home, even for years. They live in the open and give the right to housing a particular interpretation.
“The right to a decent and adequate housing is not only in a restrictive sense of shelter, but rather should be considered as the right to live in security, peace and dignity.” United Nations – Urban Rights Committee.
