Migrants Crossing the Mediterranean is a Myth, and How NGOs are Working Hand in Hand with Human Traffickers

by Mark Angelides

Between the Libyan and Sicilian coasts, there is a distance of 300 miles and the common story is that poor, belabored migrants make this dangerous crossing in an effort to reach either safety or a better life but tragically fail. The only problem is this isn’t actually true. Last year, more than 180,000 people were registered as entering Europe by this method. But out of that 180,000, how many do you think made the 300 mile journey? Zero. Not a single one.
The reality is that the boats make it just 12 miles from the Libyan coast and send out a distress signal. In rush the NGOs and the EU vessels to pick them up. The Laws state that they should rightly be taken to the nearest port, for example Tunisia or back to Libya, but no, they are taken to Europe and the process of citizenship begins.
Aid agencies put out the image of intrepid seafarers risking life and limb to make the crossing in a desperate attempt to escape the danger or crushing poverty. Government figures put the cost of tickets (paid to the people traffickers) at around 1500 Euros; quite expensive for a 12 mile boat trip you might think. But the cost is not only for the 12 miles, the traffickers arrange with NGOs where the boat will become “distressed” and where they can be picked up; it’s an all-inclusive fee.
Frontex, the EU border agency, in its annual report directly implicated the NGOs and aid agencies of working hand in hand with the traffickers. In many cases, it is the agencies that are told of the distress call and not the Coast Guards. Based on only this year’s figures, more than 50% of pickups were organized this way. Often, no distress signal is sent, which we can assume means a pre-arranged pick up.
This is collusion with criminals. The NGOs are using taxpayer money to willfully help people traffickers and yet no one is stopping them. If the EU knows it and openly admits it, we can be sure that all governments involved are aware of it.
Consider the traffickers for a moment. The kind of people who engage in this type of crime (the trafficking of people which could result in loss of life) are probably not moral types. Are they likely to be involved in other types of trafficking? Women, children? It is not beyond the realms of possibility. And yet aid organizations are ensuring that these people get continuous funds and avoid prosecution.

  1. From here to talk of a conspiracy is but a small step, but nobody seems to dare make it. Of course, there were such speculations in the alternative media, but those are just conspiracy nuts, what can you expect?

    • Alternative media reports the Truth; whereas, mainstream media peddles propaganda lies. What’s happening 12 miles off the Libyan coast isn’t a conspiracy theory, it’s fact. These NGO’s only get away with aiding human traffickers because the EU looks the other way.

  2. i hope you’re watching the dyncorp haiti and me series on youtube-george webb,..explains the whole mideast trafficking mess, organ harvesting in kosovo and syria, the afghan gold rat lines and hillary’s heroin mangos. a hundred days of stunning corruption
