I concentrated on the positive encounteres. At the Forbin centre I met a young Guinean who knew of a collective dedicated to supporting migrants: El Manba. That’s where I got to know lots of really friendly people who can help you with your administrative procedures. The people giving legal advice told me that I shouldn’t seek asylum since there was no chance of me obtaining it. Senegal is considered a safe country and therefore my application would get nowhere. In addition, if you receive a negative reply, after six moths you are summoned to leave the country. So you shouldn’t do it.
