Map Mos Maiorum! About this map
Under the name "mos maiorum" one of the largest European Joint Police Operations takes place from Monday 13th October until Sunday 26th October. Up to 18 000 members of the police forces of Schengen member states will - coordinated by Europol and Frontex - carry out raids, checks and dragnet searches throughout the whole European Union in order to find, detain and deport illegalized migrants. Anti-racist groups and intiatives strongly critized the operation, demanded to stop of it and published travel warnings for migrants. More information on "mos maiorum" can be found at the Statewatch website.
This project aims to document the raids and controls carried out with "mos maiorum". The map is based on the crowdmapping platform ushahidi. Users can contribute to the map by reporting incidents like checkpoints by using
