Das Gericht entließ Cpt. #CarolaRackete aus einer Reihe von Gründen:

1. Die Richterin verwarf den Vorwurf 'Gewalt gegen Kriegsschiffe' & vertrat die Auffassung, dass der Widerstand gegen Beamte "in Erfüllung einer Pflicht"–der Pflicht, Leben auf See zu retten–gerechtfertigt war.
2. Die Richterin betonte, dass der Entschluss der Kapitänin der #SeaWatch3, den Hafen von #Lampedusa als nächsten „Place of Safety“ anzulaufen, notwendig war. #Libyen & #Tunisien könnten nicht als sichere Häfen angesehen werden.
3. Darüber hinaus sei die neue #Salvini-Verordnung "nicht auf Rettungseinsätze anwendbar", da sie sich nur auf das Handeln von Schmugglern beziehe. Die Verordnung war kurz nach der Rettung am 12 Juni noch hastig vom italienischen Innenministerium in Kraft gesetzt worden.

1/. Today, the captain of the #SeaWatch3 rescue ship, #CarolaRackete, has been in court. She was arrested in Italy.

Her “crime”?

Docking in Lampedusa, in order to disembark 42 men, women & children who had fled from Libya & had been stranded in the Mediterranean for 17 days.
2/. Saving lives at sea & taking them to safe place is a legal duty under intn'l &
Italian law.

Lampedusa was the closest safe port.

5 EU countries had agreed to take the people on board.

They'd been at sea for 17 days.

Libya is not a safe country. apnews.com/43eb47c8ce6b49…
3/. This is the first time #Italy's newest hardline migration laws have been tested.

Last year, ports were closed to NGO rescue vessels & this month, a new bill on security & immigration - dubbed the “Salvini Decree” after @matteosalvinimi - was adopted.

“Per uno sconosciuto, gli sconosciuti non piangono.”

Questa frase di Emily Dickinson mi accoglie all’ingresso del cimitero di #Lampedusa, dove giacciono vicini le spoglie dei lampedusani e i corpi delle persone morte nel Mediterraneo. Fianco a fianco, un’unica umanità.
La targa all’ingresso spiega che il numero dei corpi presenti è imprecisato e non sappiamo nulla di loro, se non le informazioni legate alla loro morte. “Ma tutti loro hanno vissuto, hanno sofferto e gioito, hanno sognato e lottato, qualcuno li ha attesi e pianti”.
Qua riposano.
Una parte del cimitero contiene le lapidi senza nome, alcune sono sepolture comuni di poveri resti, di cui non si ha traccia del naufragio che li ha portati ad incagliarsi in qualche rete, altri sono sepolti individualmente, con una targa che ricorda le circostanze della morte.
