> Spain: Neighbourhood groups' report on racist identity checks in Madrid
> The Brigadas Vecinales de Observación de Derechos Humanos (BVODH, Neighbourhood Brigades to observe human rights compliance) is a coalition involving citizens in Madrid who have taken up the task of mounting a response to "discriminatory social control policies" in their neighbourhoods which they describe as "racist, xenophobic and classist", in particular as regards identity checks in the streets enacted by the police. This report, "Informe sobre los controles de identidad racistas en Madrid (2010/2011)", is the product of their monitoring work on discriminatory identity checks between 10 December 2009 (a total of 445,000 people were identified by officers in Madrid in the whole of 2009) and 10 May 2011.

> A flotilla to stop deaths in the Mediterranean
> "The lack of hospitality within the policy of European states has reached such an appalling level that it is our duty to act and to show the possibility of a Euro-Mediterranean area based on solidarity and respect for Human Rights. Following their meeting in Cecina (Italy), the Euro-Mediterranean organisations in favour of migrants’ rights decided to charter a flotilla which will proceed to maritime surveillance so that assistance is provided finally to people in danger. The participatory organisations would also like to call on the European bodies and governments on both sides of the Mediterranean for establishing relations within this common area on the basis of exchange and reciprocity."

This concert and the people present were attacked by police, who beat people up severely and arrested almost 150 persons. Those of the arrested refusing to tell their name are still in prison and have been put in 'foreigner detention' (which can be for almost unlimited time)

> study on conditions faced by irregular migrants employed as domestic workers
> EU Fundamental Rights Agency presents new study on conditions faced by irregular migrants employed as domestic workers. Today the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) is presenting its report on the fundamental rights of irregular migrants who are employed as domestic workers in the EU. Most irregular migrants in domestic work are women. The report shows that their irregular immigration status, coupled with challenges in regulating domestic work more generally, makes this group very vulnerable to exploitation, including cases of physical abuse. Typical forms of exploitation include low pay, often having to work excessive working hours, and usually not being able to obtain compensation for work-related accidents.
