Lampedusa

The many victims, drowned before the coast of Lampedusa are a disgrace! Europe has built a wall around himself from Morocco to Greece. The Italian authorities take the boats of the fishermen of Lampedusa as a revenge, when they helped drowning refugees. Who comes from them ashore has to pay 5,000 $ penalty.

background music: me, playing on my guitar LET MY PEOPLE GO! – do we have empathy for all those modern people, trying to escape from a land where they were oppressed?

P.S.:
since 2010 I’m writing about this topic, of course without any result – what can a single blogger do?

    • “Neptune’s nacreous nymphs”: what are they doing, watching the drowned people tumbling down to the ground of the Mediterranean sea before Lampedusa? I know, you are religious, and so I played for you GO DOWN MOSES – do we have empathy for all those modern people, trying to escape from a land where they were oppressed?

    Your topic makes me so sad but when I opened it and heard you strumming I felt better. Sad story though, it just makes no sense.
