A cemetery called the Mediterranean

by , under Enrique Tessieri

This will be one of the shortest posts ever published in Migrant Tales thanks to a picture published on the front page of El País of Madrid. Those dots on the water are people who got shipwrecked off the coast of Libya. 

This is tragically not the first picture showing people shipwrecked, on crowded vessels or floating lifelessly on the Mediterranean.

These are real people that Europe and our politicians have turned their backs on.

Every time we look the other way or deafen our ears to their cries we chip away a piece of our humanity and values.

Shame on Europe. Shame on you and me.

Thousands of people are visiting since Thursday a post on Migrant Tales that was published in May.
