In memoriam for Aylan Kurdi

Aylun Kurdi

Most of us are in shock today at the photo of the Syrian infant washed up on the beach in Turkey. The wrenching image of that wee child & the thought that thousands have drowned in the past several years because of EU immigration policy should fuel an international movement demanding immigration as a human right.

And not only in the Mediterranean but Rohingya in the Andaman Sea, Central Americans on trains crossing Mexico, & Sri Lankans, Pakistanis, Afghans, & others crossing to Australia.

May our little boy rest in peace & may we not rest until border walls are torn down & no human being is considered alien.

Photo is 3-year-old Aylan Kurdi (L) & his 5-year-old brother Galip who also drowned along with their mother Rihan
