OUR STORY

COLLECTION

WHERE DO OUR BENEFITS GO?
Current legislation in Spain and institutional racism prevent migrant people fleeing their home countries, whether due to poverty, war, violence or persecution, from accessing legal and decent work.

We are migrants and we are people of peace; we risk our own lives fleeing from our countries in order to have a decent job and help our families to survive. Upon arrival to Spain, our dreams are broken, we are treated as criminals, imprisoned or deported and considered ‘migrants in irregular situation’, not having the right to residence and work, neither access to basic social services such as education, housing and health.

In order to regularize our situation, we are required to remain in Spain for at least 3 years, but we have no right to work. In order to survive, we work as street vendors, but it is considered an illegal activity and when we are detained by the police, this criminal record prevents our regularization for another 5 years. We are thus trapped by the system, which prevents us from having a decent job and criminalizes us, being the constant target of the police, politicians and the media.

Many people think they know what Top Manta and the Top Manta vendors are, but only a few have come and talked to us and asked us what our story is.
Everybody has a story to tell. This is ours.

2014
––– Our journey starts in Senegal. We used to be able to fish on our shores to make a living, but eventually the fishing multinationals, among them Spanish companies, established themselves in the area, and little by little they took from us all chance of surviving as fishermen. If we are able to tell you this story, it’s because we managed to get to Europe. We crossed borders filled with excitement for a better life.

2015
––– A group of 200 street vendors in Barcelona joined forces together and founded the Street Vendors’ Trade Union to have our own voice, stand up for our rights and negotiate with the public administrations.

2017
––– We launched the Top Manta brand with the intent to improve our living standards as a group, help get people off the street, and develop creative communication campaigns to explain the injustices of a fake system.

2019
––– Top Manta has become a social and political agent of reference in the city of Barcelona and is closely intertwined with multiple social movements. Thanks to the brand we have been able to legalise the lives of many colleagues.

The system still considers us illegal people, but we have no time to lose. That’s why we have started to make legal clothing. Our dream is to get more people off the streets. That’s why we need you to contribute to our project by purchasing a Top Manta Lottery ticket!
