EU summit to offer resettlement to only 5,000 refugees
Exclusive: Confidential draft from summit reveals that only 5,000 migrants will be allowed to resettle in Europe with large numbers likely to be repatriated
Read More

Migrants wait to disembark from an Italian navy ship in Salerno. Theresa May and Philip Hammond believe such rescue operations create a ‘pull factor’ and lead to more deaths by encouraging migrants to risk the dangerous sea crossing.

Only 5,000 resettlement places across Europe are to be offered to refugees under the emergency summit crisis package to be agreed by EU leaders in Brussels on Thursday.

A confidential draft summit statement seen by the Guardian indicates that the vast majority of those who survive the journey and make it to Italy – 150,000 did so last year – will be sent back as irregular migrants under a new rapid-return programme co-ordinated by the EU’s border agency, Frontex. More than 36,000 boat survivors have reached Italy, Malta and Greece so far this year.

Eritrea/Ethiopia: The Christian migrants murdered by ISIS – a tragedy that could well happen again

    ACN News: Monday, 27th April 2015 – ERITREA/ETHIOPIA 

    The Christian migrants murdered by ISIS – a tragedy that could well happen again 

    By Marta Petrosillo 

    "It is a tragedy that could well happen again. There are many other migrants in the hands of ISIS." The words are those of Don Mussie Zerai, an Eritrean priest, who was speaking to the Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) about the recent murder of around 30 Ethiopian and Eritrean Christians by the terrorists of the so-called Islamic State (IS) – a murder the terrorists themselves portrayed in a video they posted on 19th April. 

    Don Zerai is the founder and president of the agency Habeshia and is known for his work in defence of the asylum seekers and migrants who are trying to escape the wars, dictatorships, terrorism and persecution in their own countries. It is work that in recent months has brought him nomination as a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize   Read More.

Ethiopian Migrants Drawn to Dangerous Journey Despite Risks

04/28/2015   As you're watching this video, keep in mind that the Ethiopians who stated they will attempt to get to Europe will do so by claiming they are Eritreans. It's an open secret that thousands of "Eritreans" entering Europe are in fact Ethiopians masquerading as Eritreans. They use the Eritrean identity when applying for asylum due to UNHCR categorizing all Eritrean migrants as "prima faice asylum seekers" (i.e. automatic recognition of Eritreans en masse).

Eritreans were given this special status by UNHCR for political reasons. It was mainly put in place to induce Eritreans to leave their country by removing the criminal aspect of their migration, and to force to hand of Western countries to accept Eritrean migrants as "refugees". Without UNHCR's designation, the threat of being arrested and deported back to their country would of discouraged many if not most from attempting such a dangerous and expensive voyage. It would of also deterred many African migrants, including Ethiopians, from using the Eritrean name to attempt such a journey.


Is this the beginning of the end of human trafficking as we now it?
Will  the West rethink its attempt to forcefully convert nations to its module of democracy via interference into internal affairs of nations?

Ethiopia: Clashes at rally to mourn Christians killed by ISIL in Libya    Read More

2/04 16:12 CET  Clashes erupted as tens of thousands of Ethiopians gathered to denounce the mass murder of compatriots byISIL extremists.

Wednesday’s government-organised rally in the capital came amid three days of national mourning for some 30 Ethiopian Christians beheaded or shot, on video, by militants in Libya.

“We will not bow down to terrorism!” one placard carried by a young boy said. Another read: “The world must be united against terrorism.”

But many demonstrators in Addis Ababa were also angry that the jobless feel they must travel to places like Libya in the hope of reaching Europe.

“Ethiopians migrate because we want a better life,” said one protester, Daniel Dawit, who knew some of the victims.

“There are Ethiopian people who have degrees and diplomas but can’t find work here. Ethiopians don’t want to migrate. The situation forces them to.”

Security was tight but frustration at poverty and unemployment erupted among the crowd and riot police lashed out with batons. At least 100 people were reported arrested.

Accused of clamping down on free speech, Ethiopia’s government dismisses accusations from rights groups that it stifles critics and opponents.


IOM: Mediterranean death toll could top 30,000 in 2015

International Organization for Migration says 1,727 migrants have died so far in 2015, up from 56 at same point in 2014.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has warned that, based on current figures, the migrant death toll on the Mediterranean this year could top 30,000.
The IOM said late on Tuesday that it believed 1,727 migrants have died trying to make the journey to Europe from North Africa so far this year, compared to just 56 at the same time last year.
"IOM now fears that the 2014 total of 3,279 migrant deaths may be surpassed this year in a matter of weeks," the group said in a statement.
"We just want to make sure people understand how much more ... rapid these deaths have been coming this year," IOM spokesman Joel Millman said earlier on Tuesday.
