Grazie a Francia e Italia riapre il mercato degli SCHIAVI in Libia

Un reportage della CNN ha documentato che in Libia, attorno ai Centri di detenzione degli immigrati, si è creato un vero e proprio mercato degli schiavi.

La propaganda europea, soprattutto in Italia e in Francia, esalta i "successi" nella riduzione degli sbarchi ma tace sulla realtà dei lager libici, finanziati dai paesi europei, dove le condizioni della dignità umana sono sconosciute e dove si sta sviluppando la tratta degli schiavi, con la complicità e l'interesse delle fazioni libiche al potere.

John Dalhuisen, direttore di Amnesty International Europe, scrive su Al Jazeera:

The EU's complicity in refugee abuse in Libya

Refugees and migrants are routinely exposed to human rights violations committed by Libyan officials and security forces and abuses at the hands of armed groups and criminal gangs, who are often working in close cooperation and to mutual financial advantage. In a lawless country, refugees and migrants have become a resource to be exploited - a commodity around which an entire industry has grown, as the shocking footage of an apparent slave auction aired by CNN last month highlighted.

The European Union, its member states - and Italy, in particular - have pursued their own goal of restricting the flow of refugees and migrants across the Mediterranean, with little thought, or seemingly care, for the consequences for those trapped in Libya as a result. They have entered into a string of cooperation agreements with Libyan authorities responsible for grave human rights violations, in particular, the Libyan Coast Guard (LCG) and the General Directorate for Combating Illegal Migration (DCIM).

Migrants and refugees are caught in a soul-destroying cycle of exploitation to which collusion between guards, smugglers and the LCG consigns them. Guards at the detention centres torture them to extort money. If they are able to pay they are released. They can also be passed onto smugglers who can secure their departure from Libya in cooperation with the LCG. Agreements between the LCG and smugglers are signalled by markings on boats that allow them to pass through Libyan waters without interception, and the Coast Guard has also been known to escort boats out to international waters. 

The actions of European countries are leading to increasing numbers of people being stopped or intercepted. In so doing, European governments - and again, Italy, in particular - are breaching their own international obligations and becoming complicit in the violations committed by the Libyan authorities they are sponsoring and cooperating with.

 Le opinioni e le denunce espresse da Amnesty International si sommano a quelle di Medici Senza Frontiere e di altre decine di organizzazioni umanitarie.

La Libia è un mattatoio a cielo aperto, dove i profughi respinti dall'Europa vengono venduti come schiavi a quelli che i francesi e gli italiani faranno a gara per avere come soci negli affari miliardari per la ricostruzione e sfruttamento delle risorse libiche.

Finito il business sulle coste italiane inizia quello nell'entroterra africano, dove Macron e Gentiloni sono impegnati in una poco nobile competizione. I trafficanti di esseri umani ringraziano.
