Central Mediterranean Info

borderline-europe started in March 2019 to put together information about the situation in the Central Mediterranean Sea for internal research reasons. In 2020 we decided to publish these info-letters. In these letters you will find some news about the current situation in Libya, shipwrecks and rescue operations in the Mediterranean Sea. Additionally, you will find the most important facts about criminalization of humanitarian sea rescue and Italian politics.

 

If you're interested in more information about the topics of the info-letters you can contact us and we will provide you with more reading material as we have an archive of articles in various languages.

Die Central Med Info ist nur in englischer Sprache verfügbar. Wenn Sie mehr Interesse an den Themen der info-letters haben, senden wir Ihnen gerne weiteres Lesematerial, in verschiedenen Sprachen, aus unserem Archiv zu.

Sea rescue is not a crime

Recent attempts to criminalise sea rescuers show one thing above all: the entry of migrants should be prevented by all means. After the confiscation of the ship Iuventa owned by Jugend rettet, the ship Open Arms of the NGO Proactiva Open Arms has now also been confiscated and members of the crew are accused of "facilitating illegal migration". We demand a human response to migratory movements! As long as there are no safe escape routes, death in the Mediterranean will not stop either.
