Behind every refugee stands an arms trader
It would be good if we could address the reasons why refugees come from Africa to Europe.
It’s difficult to do anything serious about the problems – and avoid terrible human suffering like those we have just witnessed – if nobody bothers to talk about root causes and believe that the solution is just to allocate more money to deal with symptoms and “repair” work.
We must also be very careful that the word “refugee” is not replaced – as is increasingly the case – with the word “migrant”. The two a very different and a refugee has a right to protection. He or she is fleeing from hell and not coming to Europe to “seek a better life”. Refugees are not happiness-seekers.
This is what I deal with in TFF PressInfo #318.
