(en) Organisation Communiste Libertarie (OCL) - Lampedusa: Murderous borders of Europe (fr) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 06 Oct 2013 20:14:04 +0300

Thursday, October 3 once again a pleasure migrants capsized: there were 450 to 500 people on board, 130 bodies were found, 150 survivor-es and more than 200 missing-es. Italian leaders and throughout Europe resent even the Pope gets going, and newspapers make their Morbid showing pictures of recovered bodies piling up at the port of Lampedusa. A national day of mourning is scheduled for today in Italy. ---- But since 1998, nearly 20,000 migrants who are dead are in the Mediterranean Sea, their boats capsized or were sunk by the Coast Guard with rifle bullets in the air or collisions. All means are good for the power to prevent migrants from crossing borders. Recently several fishermen were sentenced by Italian courts have rescued the migrants.

Statements of compassion "against this human drama" ensuing announcements of new measures to further strengthen the monitoring of Mediterranean borders of Europe. For years cops are increasing patrols and joint military between European and African countries, and tools for monitoring ultra-sophisticated technology: radar, thermal imaging cameras, and more recently drones. All still making the transition more difficult and dangerous.

On 7 October, a European meeting in Luxembourg is expected to strengthen eurosur system for collaboration in the fight against illegal immigration between EU Member States and the monitoring agency Frontex border: sharing of data (eg fingerprints) and real-time information between various authorities and monitoring tools such as satellites or reporting systems of ships through a network of protected communication. Last Tuesday in Tripoli, Libya (to where the boat is gone) the Chiefs of Staff of Libyan and Italian armies met in the framework of cooperation agreements between the two countries on how to strengthen their relationship military, particularly in the fight against immigration and border protection.

We learned there are a few hours alleged smuggler was arrested among the survivors. To legitimize their little speech helped the leaders of their journalist friends, focus on "smuggling mafias" and "terrorist networks" that encourage illegal immigration and drug trafficking. The man arrested is a Tunisian recorded in Lampedusa there a few months and who had been expelled. Those who talk at present of a human drama and claim to act are the same people who kill increasingly strengthening monitoring and enforcement at the borders of Europe.

We must do away with borders and states, for freedom!
