Trial today began with video of the interrogation of the two men arrested with Dr. Warren, Jose and Kristian, detained until they testified, then deported. We acknowledge that these stories are not ours to tell, but we also don’t want their experiences to be erased.
Jose and Kristian are from Honduras and El Salvador, respectively. Like so many people who attempt this journey, they had traveled for months by the time they scaled the wall and entered the Arizona desert. #noalmuro #noborderwall
They described dropping their food and water after seeing @CBP in the desert near Ajo, but continued on through the cold, without any supplies. Jose explained how he navigated north - “Q: you know how to guide yourself by the starlight? A: By the stars, yes.”

Safe Passage (a thread)

In 2017 a decommissioned Irish Navy ship, the LE Aisling, was sold by public auction to a private buyer. One year later it was re-sold, at over six times the price for which it was bought, to the Libyan Navy, and re-named Al Karama (which means Dignity).
The head of the Libyan Navy was recently implicated in the bombing of a detention centre which killed 44 refugees and people seeking safety and dignity. The Libyan Coast Guard, which receives EU funding & military training, has perpetuated ongoing human rights violations at sea.
Refugees and migrants- women, men and children- are subjected to systematic, extreme abuse in Libyan detention centers.Torture, gender-based sexual violence, extortion and slavery are regularly documented realities of those who flee Libya by sea.

Two years ago today, we were patrolling in the Central Mediterranean, the deadliest border of the world. We didn't know it yet, but we were spied on by an undercover cop. Now we risk 20 years in prison. This is what really happened on 18 June 2017:


Handover on the bridge of the #IUVENTA, the new night watch takes over. Captain Dariush is still fast asleep, getting some rest before this first day of the mission. Today, some things will happen that will affect him for years to come.
[04:19] The night watch reports the current position of the rescue ship #IUVENTA to the Maritime Rescue Coordination Center (MRCC) in Rome. Nothing extraordinary, just daily morning routine to ensure good cooperation. After all, the crew is here for a reason.

Hat eigentlich irgendjemand diesen historischen Augenblick bemerkt? Der Text des "#GlobalCompact for Save, Orderly and Regular Migration" ist fertig… ! 🎉
Er formuliert 23 Ziele für geregelte #Migration, und stellt die Menschen in den Mittelpunkt.

Dass rechte Trolle die #Seenotrettung/#Lifeline verunglimpfen, lässt sich nicht verhindern. Problematisch ist, dass diese dreisten Lügen von hohen PolitikerInnen geteilt werden & Mio. von Menschen erreichen. Da die EU nichts (mehr) mit Menschlichkeit am Hut hat, ein paar Fakten:
1) Das richtige Aufkommen der NGOs im Mittelmeer erfolgte erst um 2014, als Reaktion auf die Tragödie vor Lampedusa, bei der mind. 368 Menschen bei einem Schiffsunglück umkamen. Offizielle Zahlen des ital. Senats beweisen, dass NGOs erst ab diesem Zeitpunkt stetig aktiver wurden:
2) Auch der Vorwurf, NGOs würden noch mehr Flüchtlinge anlocken, wurde von der London University widerlegt ( Die Zahlen einiger Migrantengruppen stiegen nach Beendigung der Rettungsoperation "Mare Nostrum" sogar an. (1/2)
