Recently more media attention has been given to far-right arson attacks on asylum centres, but we actually also have another problem going on – refugee dinghies being rammed and otherwise attacked by far-right speedboats:
I hope this serves as a wakeup call on how far behind we are in organizing. Consider the kind of equipment the far-right have compared to the equipment we have. It’s not funny. If there is anything at all relating to the crisis that anyone reading this can help us with, please contact us:
I repeat: the establishment governments are not on our side; if they were, they would be deploying naval vessels as an emergency ferry service so that refugees would not need to travel in dinghies in the first place. It’s ridiculous for the establishment governments to complain about “people smugglers” while not using the most obvious method to put them out of business literally overnight: namely by offering the refugees a safer and cheaper service than the smugglers can offer. This would have the additional benefit of regulating the inflow of refugees to a steady, orderly pace, which would be much easier for accomodation staff to then handle than the current uneven flow with sudden spikes and troughs leading to bottlenecks and other trivially avoidable logistical problems. (Not to mention it would mean that lifejackets could actually be re-used.) I refuse to believe that mere administrative incompetence is behind this. It is much more likely that establishment governments WANT such logistical problems to occur so that they can then show it on the news every day as part of their plan to deliberately incite far-right backlash.
