Spain sent the army to build a camp for seasonal workers


The Spanish army has been sent to build a camp for fruit pickers, who, according to the UN, live in inhumane conditions. Migrant workers are at high risk of becoming infected with the coronavirus, UN rapporteur De Schutter warned yesterday.

The African seasonal workers live in slums, which are dirty and dangerous. Thousands of them are trapped in Spain, because neighboring Morocco keeps its borders closed. In the Aragon region, part of the group of migrant workers has been diagnosed with the virus.

That is why the soldiers went looking for a suitable location for alternative housing today. In addition to hygiene, extra attention is also paid to fire safety during the construction. Last week, in five days, there were three fires in the slums where many fruit pickers live.
