Migrant Tales will not remain silent concerning those shameful let-them-drown politicians from Finland and the EU, which are an example of the very worse in us.
In May, four let-them-drown MEPs from Finland were elected: Teuvo Hakkarainen, Laura Huhtasaari, Petri Sarvamaa, and Henna Virkkunen.
In October, the European Parliament rejected Thursday a plan to step-up search and rescue operations for refugees and migrants in the Mediterranean with 290 votes narrowly defeated the motion against 288 in favor.
I encourage MEPs and politicians to watch this video to get a taste of what it is like to rescue survivors in the Mediterranean.
So far this year, over 1,000 lives have been lost while crossing the Mediterranean. Since 1993, UNITED for Intercultural Action has documented “more than 36,570” deaths of people who died in an attempt to enter Fortress Europe.
