After a Chinese-flagged trawler carrying 130 tons of oil ran aground off the Indian Ocean archipelago nation of Mauritius on Monday, the country's coastguard and armed forces were deployed. ImageImage
It's the second shipwreck off Mauritius in less than a year, after a tanker hit a reef in July and spilled 1,000 tons of fuel in the country's worst-ever environmental tragedy.
After becoming stranded off Pointe-aux-Sables, in the northwest of the main island, not far from the capital Port Louis, the captain of the Lurong Yuan Yu issued distress calls and sent up flares late Sunday afternoon.

🔸3 October 2013: a #shipwreck off #Lampedusa takes the lives of 368 people. Six years have passed - what has changed? #EU border policies have made the central #Mediterranean even more dangerous & lethal - thousands of lives a year have been taken. #3ottobre, #FortressEurope Image
🔸3 October 2019: Over the past 6 years, a short-lived concern for rescue gave way to the desire to deter. NGOs and migrants were criminalised. Rescues were intentionally refused or delayed to allow for mass abductions via the Libyan authorities. #FerriesNotFrontex
🔸 On this day, we protest the hypocritical co-optation of migrant deaths by those who are implicated in this continuous loss: #EU institutions and member states. Do not dare to commemorate those you have killed. #safepassage, #BridgesNotWalls
