Sea Watch: Volunteers take to the waves to aid stranded migrants

As EU leaders and European governments struggle to find a solution to the tide of migrants attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea, a group of German volunteers have decided to take matters into their own hands by setting sail to offer assistance to those they find stranded at sea. The group, called Sea Watch, was created by German entrepreneur Harald Hoeppner and an assortment of friends and volunteers from Brandenburg. Sea Watch does not pick the migrants up itself, but provides water, food and medical assistance.

La réponse des autorités françaises aux syriens à Calais: gazage et évacuation par la police

Après leur évacuation par les gendarmes mobiles de la place d’Armes hier un peu avant midi, les Syriens à Calais y sont retournés ce matin après 11h pour faire entendre à nouveau leurs revendications. Après les trois sommations ils repoussent les manifestants avec une brutalité croissante, puis commencent à gazer à bout portant. Sous une forme ou sous une autre, les Syriens sont déterminés à continuer leur mouvement. On a pu constater par rapport aux deux autres mouvements d’exilés syriens que Calais a connu, à l’automne 2013 et à l’automne 2014, un durcissement de la répression.

Bangladesh might exile Rohingya refugees to a remote, flood-prone island

Mohammed Islam is a Rohingya Muslim who has lived in a refugee camp in Bangladesh since age 9, after his family fled religious tension in his home country of Burma, also known as Myanmar. His life is one of uncertainty coupled with despair, which has deepened in recent weeks because of a Bangladesh government proposal to move 32,000 Rohingya refugees to a remote island that swamps at high tide. “We don’t want to die,” he said in an interview. “We are already persecuted; we don’t want to suffer more.”

You're better than this, Europe!

Europe has built institutions to prevent the crimes of the past and made a commitment to help those in need of protection. However, Europe’s current response to refugees shows unmistakable backsliding on that commitment and is tearing apart what remains of the European project and its facade of solidarity. Managing migration is not an easy task, but Europe must not use this as an excuse to trample on our obligations to protect those who flee wars and persecution. It is a matter of principle that defines our identity, which we must not betray.
