The EU and the refugee crisis | DW Documentary

Fewer asylum seekers came to Germany in 2017 than in previous years. But in Italy and Greece, numbers of asylum seekers remain high.

Most of them arrived in Greece or Italy. Some two years after the refugee crisis reached boiling point, these countries continue to bear the brunt of the problem. Both feel let down by fellow European Union states, who have been unable to agree on a common response despite pressure from Brussels. While working for the European border agency Frontex in the Aegean Sea, senior German police officer Frank Rogatty and his team encountered hopelessly overcrowded, unseaworthy rubber dinghies full of panic-stricken people night after night. In the dark, migrants cannot tell whether they are being approached by a Turkish police boat or a European vessel. Sometimes, dramatic scenes unfold when the migrants refuse to stop - and unknowingly steer towards treacherous cliffs. The situation on the Greek islands reveals the full extent of Europe’s failure. The refugee camps there are overcrowded. Many of the migrants are forced to live in flimsy tents. The Greeks feel they have been abandoned by the EU. The refugee relocation system is not working. As well as opposing this quota system, states like Hungary and Poland are also against the idea of giving extra cash to help those countries who take in the majority of migrants. When asked about the poor conditions in Greek refugee camps, even German interior minister Thomas de Maizière said that they were "a Greek problem in the first instance.” Italy also feels that it has been left to deal with migrants arriving from North Africa on its own. In summer it approached the UN-recognized government in Libya to enlist its help to stop their boats crossing the Mediterranean in the first place. The EU is now backing this initiative by training and funding the Libyan coast guard whose mission it is to intercept refugees and migrants at sea and return them to Libya. Late last year, there were widespread reports of African migrants being subjected to torture, slavery and even summary execution there. During filming in Italy, the filmmakers met refugees who said their circumstances in Libya were "like hell”. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

501(c)3--Homes on Wheels Alliance Non Profit

In today's video, we have a huge announcement that we have created an IRS certified 501c3 non-profit named Homes on Wheels Alliance Non Profit (HOWA for short). My wonderful friend Suanne is the Executive Director and I am the President of the Board of Trustees. If you know anything about organizing a 501c3, then you know we did it in an amazingly short period of time. There were 5 of us involved and we all worked what seemed like around-the-clock to make it happen!! But now that it has happened, we face the even harder job of putting into place the programs that will change people's lives. We have many ideas and plans but they all take an army of volunteers and mountains of money. We are confident that we can put both of those in place, but it won't be fast and it will take an enormous amount of work! We're up for it and we will be asking you for your help! Also, I want you to have total trust in the transparency and integrity of HOWA. Of course, we will comply with all IRS rules but we will go above them in any way we can to earn your trust. Of course there are trolls and haters running around screaming about how I am just doing this to rip-you-off. When you hear their shrill screams I hope you will ask yourself this, "Bob has been in the public eye and in personal contact with his readers and viewers since 2005 with his website, RTR forum, blog, and Youtube Channel--I wonder if there is even a shred of evidence of him doing all that work for any other reason than compassion? Is there any evidence of him doing it to steal from people?" After you ask those questions, ask yourself what you know about the trolls who are bad-mouthing me? Is there any reason you should believe them--have they proved that they deserve your trust? Do they even have the courage to tell you their real name and invite you into their camp? You'll have to make up your own mind. Be sure to visit my Amazon Influencer Store, where I have posted some of my useful and recommend products for nomadic living.
