Filmmaker Lauren Southern to Hold ‘Crisis Meeting’ in European Parliament

Documentary filmmaker and political activist Lauren Southern has announced she will be holding a “crisis meeting” on migration after having interviewed part of a network of human traffickers in Morocco.

Southern told Breitbart London that the meeting, which is set to take place on Thursday at the European Parliament in Brussels, will show an interview that she conducted with a group of Moroccan people smugglers, along with an interview of a migrant transport NGO CEO who has since been imprisoned for cooperating with people traffickers.

The interviews are part of Southern’s latest documentary film Borderless in which she investigates the issues relating to mass migration across the Mediterranean in both Europe and North Africa.

“The European Union has been the ivory tower from which delusional policies have been forced on the European people. Borderless is a documentary which uncovers the impact of such policies, and the culpability of those who create them,” Southern said.

“From the unnecessary drowning of refugees to the regret of migrants mis-sold a European dream, and the exponential rise in sexual assault, homicide, and terrorism; it is time to lay these crimes at the doorstep of their collapsing kingdom,” she added.

UK MEP Janice Atkinson, who is hosting the event, called the film, “an important and timely reminder that we’re not in control of our borders, who comes here and that taxpayer-funded NGOs are really people traffickers aided by the liberal left.”

Even before the release of the film, Southern already made waves late last year revealing that the pro-migrant advocacy NGO Advocates Abroad had been training migrants how to lie in interviews in order to help them claim asylum.

The revelations came following an undercover interview with the NGO’s head Ariel Ricker who said, “We teach them… how to keep their private trauma private because all this acting is a shield. I tell them this is acting, all of this is acting, it’s all acting as though this is theatre.”

“So for them to get through they must act their part in the theatre, and that is the refugee in trauma because these [The European Asylum Support Office] officers are so fucking stupid, all they know is written on the paper,” she added.

Southern also made headlines last year after being detained in Calais by the UK Border Force while trying to enter the UK under Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act over a political experiment in which she and others posed as social justice advocates in Luton and handed out fliers that read, “Allah is Gay, Allah is Trans, Allah is Intersex.”
