All over the world people are marching – they are motivated to make journeys en masse. Marching to assert human rights and marching in support of the marginalised, or to object to draconian policies. However many are making a much more arduous journey fraught with peril that draws them across countries, continents and seas, as they flee war, famine, or persecution. Lines of people are marching – being confronted by authorities that don’t want them – they are met with force or indifference. Many discover that their journey is curtailed – some are prevented from entering territories, others are arrested, teargassed, even fired upon – many discover their plight or concerns are not valued or are dismissed, they don’t count - they are not important enough. People are arrested, detained, imprisoned, hurt, even killed. But still they march.
