This condemnation of EU refugee policies is a metaphor not only for European policies mandating the drowning of thousands of refugees from African countries, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, & many other countries, but also of the US concentration camps for refugees which every day get closer to the ethos of Auschwitz.
We cannot act like bumps on a log or allow our governments to turn us into monsters in silent collusion with these human rights crimes. Every initiative must be taken to organize rallies, speak-outs, forums, social media campaigns to actively oppose these policies.
Immigration is a human right. Asylum for refugees is international law.
