Dozens of migrants die in three shipwrecks

Dozens of migrants die in three shipwrecks | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
More than 220 migrants were reported dead after three shipwrecks off the coasts of Libya and Italy this weekend.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Excerpt:

Since the ousting of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, Libya's rulers have struggled to re-establish security. The country has become a main point for human traffickers who smuggle people from African countries to Europe across the Mediterranean. Most boats head for Italy.

So far this year more than 100 000 migrants have landed on Italian shores, a record number. Rome authorities have launched a maritime search-and-rescue operation to prevent deaths at sea, but they say they cannot continue funding it on their own.

Excerpt:

The ones that TTIP will free up to deregulate all public services and allow corporations to demand punitive fines from a state that interferes with their profiteering? Isn’t that a tad more controversial and newsworthy than which party to blame?  The EU has received 150,000 submissions from citizens of 18 EU countries challenging TTIP and the aim is to raise 1 million from at least seven countries, which would then trigger a formal procedure requiring the European commission to address these concerns.
