Rescued migrants head for Spain after Italy closes ports/Letter of solidarity to NGO Open Arms

59.395 LIVES

Since September 2015 until August 2018, we have managed to save each and every one of these people, giving them a chance to reach dry land after embarking on one of the most dangerous voyages of their lives at sea.

RESCUED MIGRANTS HEAD FOR SPAIN AFTER ITALY
CLOSES PORTS/STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY TO NGO OPEN ARMS
BEFORE…….
Dear Readers
Open Arms is an NGO  organisation, which has saved nearly
60 000 refugees, who probably should have drowned in the Mediterranean
Sea or faced a horror future in Libya, when not rescued by Open Arms
 
To thank them for their humanity and determination to save lives, I wrote
them a Letter of Solidarity.

[Welcome to Europe]/Frontex

FRONTEX

 

Frontex is the European border agency, founded in 2004 and operational since 2005. The agency has their seat in Warsaw, Poland, from where it directs its activities. Although it is often believed, Frontex is not an actual border police, with a staff in uniform and with the task to actually police the borders of the EU. Rather, Frontex is a coordinating mechanism of the European Union organizing the cooperation of the border police bodies of the member states of the EU. In this respect, Frontex is like a meta border police: it is both above and behind the everyday practices of border guards.

LIBYA: REJECT ”POLITICAL ISOLATION LAW”

Provisions for Exclusion Too Vague, Sweeping

 

Press release

MAY 4, 2013
Libyans have a right to expect that officials who abused their positions under Gaddafi to commit crimes or violate human rights will be removed and never again allowed to hold public office.
Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East and North Africa director

(Beirut) – Libya’s General National Congress (GNC) should vote down the latest draft of a new law to bar Gaddafi-era officials from holding public office. The proposed law’s provisions and procedures for exclusion are too sweeping and vague, Human Rights Watch said. Further, a recent amendment to the provisional constitution would prohibit judicial review of the law. A vote is expected in congress on May 5, 2013.

Libya 2011/The death of Gaddafi/The National Transitional Council’s bloody path

 

THE DEATH OF GADDAFI/THE NATIONAL TRANSITIONAL COUNCIL’S BLOODY PATH

by Astrid Essed Friday, Nov. 25, 2011 at 6:23 PM

 

The resistance against the former president Gaddafi was legitimate. However, the rebels not

only allied with the NATO, sacrifying real Libyan independence, they also commit warcrimes with little

distinction between them and Gaddafi.

 

 

DEATH OF GADDAFI/THE NATIONAL TRANSITIONAL COUNCIL’S BLOODY PATH

”Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him. ”

INTRODUCTION:

After 42 years the dictatorship of Gaddafi has come to an end
However, the new rulers don’t deserve any benefit of the doubt
They didn’t trust on the strength of the Libyan people and made alliance with the NATO
which only serve Western interests
With a pro Western regime, the Libyan people can forget any real independence and
social advancement
Regarding human rights they made a bloody beginning with the apparent extrajudicial
execution of Gaddafi and his son Mutassim
Prisoners have been tortured and humiliated
There are vehement racist attacks on African migrant workers and black Libyans
When the situation stays this and those responsible for torture and violence
don’t face prosecution, the former Gaddafi dictatorship will be followed by a next one
