When Europe Buries Its Head in the Sand


The Mediterranean sea is constantly bloody. People who die in the sea are the ones who have to choose between a certain death and a little hope of life because of the long crossing of the sea in inhuman conditions. They choose the second option. The tragedies in the last days are particularly dramatic given the international tension and the deteriorating of the Libyan situation.

The numbers are tragic: between 1988 and September 2014, 21,344 people died in the Mediterranean sea. While between 2011 and 2012, two thousand people died and in 2013 six hundred of them. However these numbers account only for the bodies found and identified. But the number of missing people is certainly bigger. According to Amnesty International data in 2014, by September, 2,500 people died, 2,200 only in early June.
