🔴ULTIMORA! Sei naufragi e ~200 morti al largo della #Libia a settembre!

Centinaia di persone sono morte nel #Med centrale in pochi giorni. Ancora silenzio delle autorità europee. I sopravvissuti sono vivi grazie agli sforzi dei pescatori.
Grazie @RescueMed per la traduzione. Come ad agosto, molti dei naufragi avvenuti a settembre non sono stati ammessi dalle autorità. Eccetto pochi casi, abbiamo saputo di queste tragiche morti in mare grazie ai sopravvissuti o ai coraggiosi pescatori che si sono rivolti ad Alarm Phone per far sentire la loro voce.

🔴BREAKING! Six shipwrecks and almost 200 deaths off #Libya in September!

Hundreds of people have died in the Central Med over just a few days & again European authorities keep silent. Those who survived are alive only thanks to the efforts of fishermen.

alarmphone.org/en/2020/09/27/… As in August, most shipwrecks that happened in September were not recognised by any authority. With the exception of a few, we only heard of these tragic deaths at sea because traumatised survivors or brave fishermen reached out to #AlarmPhone to make their voices heard.

🆘This morning, #AlarmPhone was alerted by some relatives about a boat with ~10 persons onboard, which departed on Monday night from Bab El Oued, in #Algeria. We informed authorities today at 3:20pm. @salvamentogov, the launch of a rescue operation is urgently needed! 🔴 WHERE ARE THEY?

No news concerning ~10 people in distress who left #Algeria on 21 September. We fear that they will have to survive a 4th night at sea. Relatives say they are on a white and blue wooden boat. @salvamentogob believe they are not in Spanish SAR zone yet.

🆘BREAKING! SHIPWRECK HAPPENING NOW off Garabulli #Libya. A fisherman just told us that he rescued 21 people but had to leave 33 people behind clinging on the rubber boat tubes. He tried to inform authorities but no reaction.

Italian authorities told us they aren't responsible. Libyan CG say we should call tomorrow.

A relative demands freedom for his brother now detained on the vessel #Etienne for 23 days. He writes: "Please, let my brother Osman and the other 26 refugees disembark in Malta, let them free!"
#LetThemIn!

alarmphone.org/en/2020/08/28/… "On August 3 my brother Osman called me from #Libya. He said he would leave for Europe at night in a small boat with 25 other refugees. The boat did not make a very good impression on him but he really could not stay in Libya any longer. That was the last time I spoke with him."

++Temiamo RESPINGIMENTO verso la Libia++

RCC #Malta e Forze Armate Maltesi non stanno soccorrendo le ~27 persone in pericolo. Li abbiamo allertati più volte ma non hanno soccorso. La barca è ora alla deriva nella contestata zona SAR #libica e le persone sono ancora in mare. 1/3 Image Il mercantile #ETIENNE della compagnia @MaerskTankers sta monitorando la barca ma non sta soccorrendo. Temiamo fortemente che sia #Malta che il mercantile stiano aspettando la cosiddetta guardia costiera libica per riportare forzatamente le persone in una zona di guerra. 2/3

++ PUSH-BACK to Libya feared! ++

RCC #Malta & the Armed Forces are failing to rescue the ~27 people in distress. Despite being repeatedly alerted by us, no rescue has been carried out. The boat has drifted into the contested #Libyan SAR zone & the people are still at sea. 1/3 Image The cargo vessel #ETIENNE of the company @MaerskTankers is monitoring the boat but not rescuing the people. We have strong concerns that both #Malta and the cargo vessel are waiting for the so-called Libyan coastguards to come and forcibly return the people to a warzone. 2/3
