On 17th June we will launch the exclusive report “Remote control: the EU-Libya collaboration in mass interceptions of migrants in the Central Mediterranean” denouncing the support brought to the so-called Libyan Coast Guard by EU member states to control migration in and around the Central Mediterranean. The EU’s increasing outsourcing of responsibility for rescue has led to mass pull-backs of migrants to Libya by ‘remote control’ from EU aerial assets.
▂ The launch discussion will be streamed via the „United we Talk“ format. You have the possibility to chat with us via the website: https://sea-watch.org/unitedwetalk/ There you can also watch the stream of ALEX Berlin and ask us questions that we will take into the live-talk of the show.
▂ Based on their first-hand observations, activists from the emergency hotline Watch The Med - Alarmphone and the Search and Rescue NGOs Mediterranea Saving Humans and Sea-Watch, together with borderline europe - Menschenrechte ohne Grenzen e.V., will report on how the aerial collaboration between the EU and Libya works operationally and how it contributes to the mass interception of fleeing migrants.
▂ Considering the ongoing civil war and countless reports of torture, rape and further degrading treatment taking place in detention centers, it is clear that Libya cannot be considered a safe country for people on the move. Together with our guest speakers, Sally Hayden (journalist) and Yasha Maccanico (Statewatch), we will also touch upon recent developments in the Libyan camps as well as discuss the accountability of European actors.
