In my @cbcradio interview today, I said that #migrants crisis on #Belarus #PolandBorder is escalation of conflict between EU, in particular #Poland, & Belarus. #Lukashenko government uses it to retaliate for EU, especially Poland’s, support of opposition & sanctions.
Humanitarian crisis on #BelarusBorder with #Poland intensifies because of cold weather & harsh living conditions of #migrants, including many women & children. #Polish police used water cannons. Poland continues to block attempts of migrants to cross border & apply for asylum.
#Polish government actions are aimed in boosting popular support. Statement by #Poland prime minister that #migrants crisis is #terrorism does not meet definition of terrorism. Polish police used water cannons, & Poland continues to block attempts of migrants to cross border

La frontière entre la #Pologne 🇵🇱 et la #Biélorussie 🇧🇾 est actuellement le théâtre d’une crise géopolitique.

Depuis le 8/11, entre 3000 et 4000 migrants ont afflué à #Kuznica pour tenter de passer en Europe.
Ce vendredi 12/11, environ 2 000 personnes, principalement Irakiens et Syriens, se sont regroupés le long de la frontière, à proximité du poste-frontière de Kuźnica - Bruzgi.

In my live CTV #interview today, I said that #migrants crisis on #Belarus #polandborder is escalation of crisis between the EU, in particular #Poland, & Belarus. Lukashenko uses migrants from Middle East to retaliate for EU support of Belarus opposition & previous #sanctions.
In my CTV #interview today, I also said that in spite of a threat by #Lukashenko to shutdown a transit #gas #pipeline, this is unlikely because it would affect not only the EU but also #Russia which own this pipeline, supplies the gas & is an ally of #Belarus
I said that new EU sanctions against #Belarus won’t be effective because previous #sanctions for falsification of presidential elections & forced landing of passenger plane were ineffective & because Belarus relies on economic, financial, political & military support from #Russia

In my live @CTVNews #interview last evening, I said that the current migrant crisis on the #BelarusBorder with #Poland is important because it involves Poland, which is a EU members, and Belarus, which is allied with #Russia, and it is near #Ukraine, which has an armed conflict.
In my CTV News interview, I also said that UN Security Council meeting concerning migrant crisis on #BelarusBorder with #Poland is likely to produce divide between #Russia that supports #Belarusian government & Western countries, such as US, UK, and France.
I stated in my @CTVNews interview that EU #sanctions against #Belarus won’t resolve the #Migrant crisis on #Belarus #Poland border, because sanctions were proven to be ineffective after last #Belarusian presidential elections & after diversion of passenger plane by Belarus.

Who works in essential services since #Covid19 started? 🦠In many cases, #migrants represent a big percentage of #EssentialWorkers. This paper introduces the concept of ‘systemic resilience’ into the analysis of labour migration.

#Covid19 has exposed the often precarious employment conditions of essential workers➡️ Socio-economic vulnerabilities of employed migrants may shape the system’s capacity to continue functioning. This calls for attention to analyse their role in national labour markets (3/5)

In my #Ukrainian Avers TV interview, I said that #Belarusian government is using #migrants from #Iraq as retaliation for #Polish governments’ support of opposition in #Belarus & its refusal to recognize Lukashenko as president.
I also commented that US-Ukrainian partnership charter shows symbolic US support for Ukraine. It solidifies position of #Ukraine as US client state which is used by US & EU to contain #Russia without providing any commitments & without any prospects of EU membership for Ukraine.
I said that public backing by US, EU & NATO of proposed SBU law also shows client state status of #Ukraine & its security service. Despite rhetoric of reforms & democratization, SBU in fact is used against political opponents, & human rights situation is similar to end of 80s.

Follow-Up regarding the potential case of a #pushback of part of a group that arrived on the island of #Samos during the night of November 2 to 3.
A long thread 🧵👇
This week I was part of a European Parliament delegation of the LIBE Committee to #Greece that aimed at assessing the situation of #migrants and #refugees in Greece. As part of this visit, we arrived in Samos the morning of the 3rd November.
At a meeting with NGOs upon our arrival, MSF informed the Members that there was at this very moment on the island a group of people being scared to be pushed back and who had called a hotline for help. They invited members to come with them to see by themselves.

What’s the role of the US government in the Central American migration crisis? Arguably a very powerful, defining role and one that continues to drive inequality and violence in the #GlobalSouth.
In March 2020, Border Patrol reported 172k unauthorized migrants from C. America & Mexico, a 70% increase from Feb & a 20-year record high. Spikes in migration happen every 2 to 3 years and often go unaddressed:
Economic and political turmoil, gender and gang violence, climate change & corruption have been factors driving #migration in the region for years. Today, the effects of Covid-19 are yet another reason why people are leaving in search of more security and stability.

#Evacuate #Migrants & #Refugees from #Libya! THREAD
@Refugees should actively & expeditiously work to evacuate sub-Saharan #African migrants from Libya. Libyan gov't's non-mea culpa is inadequate. It hoarded 1000s over several days before they stormed out in desperation.
What happened this past week was no accident; it was intentional, done in full public view, & abetted by external funding & political/moral cover. #EU-funded Libyan security always racialized & hounded such migrants & refugees since Gaddafi days - to reinforce fortress Europe.
Mr. @FilippoGrandi, with all the due respect, expressions of concern are woefully inadeqauate under the circumstance. Your good offices has to mobilize regional & international humanitarian support. Sub-Saharan African countries should be asked to give shelter - temporary or not.

Britain has more job #vacancies than can be filled by the native workforce. That, in a nutshell, is why we need #migrants and millions of them. #Brexit was a con. Watch this 1½-minute video. Read my report on Facebook: LinkedIn:
It's not just vacancies. Britain has more JOBS than Britons to do them. That's why we need millions of migrants. It really is that simple. Why else would the government offer 3 million Hong Kong citizens the right to come to the UK? Leave voters were misled... big time.
Our country has an ageing population, and a low birth rate. So, the truth is that we have to import young people and skilled (and many unskilled) people to do the jobs that we don’t have enough Britons to fill. The government, of course, knows this only too well.
