EUROPE’s immigration problem

Via: TYWKIWDBI (“Tai-Wiki-Widbee”)

Like almost 60,000 others this year, Brahana decided to brave the Mediterranean sea in order to reach Italy, and therefore Europe. She paid people-smugglers $1,600 (£950), she says, to board a boat packed with more than 300 people.

“It’s really hard with a small baby,” she says stoically of a journey that has proved deadly for thousands over the past 20 years. Her boat was intercepted by an Italian navy ship last week and all its passengers taken to safety. The question for them now is what comes next.

More depressing details at the Guardian link.

fyi – I believe TYWKIWBI is one of the most interesting, informative, and FUN blogs on the whole damn web.

You’re right, what the hell do I know. But please check it out, anyway.

thanks
