Ms. Amtsberg, the surgery, Sophia has rescued in the past few years, tens of thousands of people from the Mediterranean. Now, you should be stopped. Why does the EU?
This Operation is light and shadow. To save people was not a core component of the Operation, but rather a side effect. Belonged to Sophia, the training of the Libyan coast guard. We, the Greens, have criticised the Operation, therefore, always, because we know that the Libyan coast guard works and is responsible for many of the people themselves are part of this network of people Smugglers rights violations. Instead, we call for a European rescue.
however, these are certainly not the same reasons for which Italy has now vetoed the project is loaded.
For Salvini's right-wing populist policy, a joint European project and the rescue of protection is not searching beneficial. According to my observation Salvini tried everything to sow discord in the European Union. He would like to see the Mediterranean sea completely sealed off and has no interest in other vessels Rescued in its ports. This course has to give the Federal government now. We Green not to criticize the end of the mandate, but the fact that the Federal government has not used, alternatively, for a European rescue.
Instead, should be strengthened for the space in front of Libya and now the air monitoring. What will this change?
You can't save out of a plane, but only a picture of the Situation. It is easy to surmise, what is monitoring the calculation of this Air. You should for sure do not serve the life to rescue of people. Rather, it is to be feared that with the Libyan coast guard will cooperate with the aim of boats near the coast to stop and to get back to the mainland, what peoples would be illegal. Refugee boats are further out on the sea in distress, there's no one there to help.
What impact will this have on the movements of refugees from the Region? The will not stop just because the risk has become even greater.
I don't think so. We talk to people who have taken this incredibly dangerous path, and it somehow managed to be saved. Tell us all: Before I leave in the Libyan Camps, my life, escape me, this is hell and would rather die on the Mediterranean sea. The European governments must finally understand that the closure of certain areas, has always led only to a shift of escape routes, not less, escape.
what is the current Situation in Libya?
There are over 2,000 armed militias in the country. Make money with Protection. Since there is a warehouse where people in the most demeaning of conditions are concentrated. We know of the slave trade, we know, of exploitation, of gender-based violence against women, children and men. These people have no way to return to their home countries or to seek legal protection in Europe. For this you need the help of the UNHCR. But the country has no official mandate. We come therefore to the question of how we the situation in Libya can improve.
What should Germany do here?
We must liberate the people, especially the children from these torture prisons. Germany can't do it alone, but that Europe and the international community of States. Many people originally came to Libya to work there. They came as migrants and refugees, due to the massive torture and ill-treatment in the country. From the experiences of human rights violations, the right to apply for protection in Europe. The Federal government must fight for a comprehensive mandate and formal recognition of the UNHCR in Libya, so that they will have access to the Camps, and refugees pursuant to its Mandate to register and you can protect. In addition, the Federal government needs to offer generous resettlement places. And, in order to respond immediately to the challenges, we need a mandatory distribution mechanism in Europe for distress rescued people. The Federal government has recognized the fortunately, finally. Because we can't discuss each boat and again, who takes responsibility or people for a week on the Mediterranean sea, to endure. Thus, we only show that we are incapable of working together on a solution.
