What is Easter?
And what is it in 2020?
(continue to keep the distance)
Yesterday morning I could not stop crying, yes. Saturday evening there was a message of help. 4 rubber dinghies in need of help in the Mediterranean sea. Saturday. 250 people.
Easter morning again the news. They found one who sank. People died. Only a few people remaining. They had given on Saturday their exact position. One rubber dinghy was with 72 people, one with 47, one with 55 and one with 85. They contacted the Alarm Phone service and the Sea Watch said it clearly.
Still today no one is rescuing them! The survivals! Many died in the water, the 85 of one of the four. Is this humanity? Just tell me. To know that people need help, but let hours and hours and hours before getting to check on them again, so that many are dead!
And now no one is going to save them! A little ONG boat left Siracusa to get there this morning, but they were redirected elsewhere for another help call toward Spain.
So who is going to save now these people who are in the water? More than 80 hours abandoned in the sea!
2020 humanity is really lost. Where people do have their heart?
Also on the 7th of April it has been signed in Italy a decree that is against the constitution and international laws with the excuse of the lockdown and the Covid19. So closing the harbours just to certain boats, but not to all. Trying to find a legal aliby not to save lives! I am so ashamed of my country, Italy!
There is so a letter written by Medici Senza Frontiere, Mediterranea Saving Humans, Open Arms and Sea-Watch (all ONG), a letter to the Commissioner for Human Rights of the European Counsil to condemn this decree against humanity and human rights.
Alan Kurdi boat rescued 150 people, no one let them down since Monday, left desperately in front of our shore. Only yesterday they gave food to them, still on the boat, sent the Red Cross, and they will be transferred after the quarantine on board, to Germany.
