ZC freefall 2017


Alexander Bissonnette, a student at the city’s Laval University … his likes on Facebook included President Donald Trump, French politician Marine Le Pen and the Israel Defense Forces.

Pandorastop, as leader of Lion’s Shield, please provide your input. This is the kind of attack that we feared would come sooner or later, and that Lion’s Shield was formed to protect against. Now that Canadians see that our predictions were well-founded, it would seem like a good time for you to try to recruit more widely and expand your organization as much as possible.

So, will Trump now ban everyone with a Canadian passport from entering the US in order to keep the American people safe from Canadian terrorists? If not, why not? We all know why not.

The battle for Atlantis

After re-reading the last part of my own earlier comment:

by resist, I do not just mean by citing local laws against federal interference, but also – if all else fails – by using firearms. Everyone who is serious about defending a sanctuary city must start by owning and being competent in operating firearms. Don’t come complaining to us when legislative countermeasures are not enough; we have already stated what needs to be done. Federal laws on their own do not magically deport people; all it takes is for people to choose to stay put. To drag someone from their home is a physical action; the last line of defence against it is also necessarily physical. If Rehabs must risk their lives each time they enter their intended victims’ home to drag them from it, will they really be willing to do it millions of times over?


I thought it might be worth elaborating on sanctuary cities, a major target of the Trump administration. Here is a map of sanctuary locations across the US:

Here is a good research report on the subject, which might be helpful for debunking rightist lies:

Crime is statistically significantly lower in sanctuary counties compared to nonsanctuary counties. Moreover, economies are stronger in sanctuary counties—from higher median household income, less poverty, and less reliance on public assistance to higher labor force participation, higher employment-to-population ratios, and lower unemployment.

Among the main findings:

  • There are, on average, 35.5 fewer crimes committed per 10,000 people in sanctuary counties compared to nonsanctuary counties.
  • Median household annual income is, on average, $4,353 higher in sanctuary counties compared to nonsanctuary counties.
  • The poverty rate is 2.3 percent lower, on average, in sanctuary counties compared to nonsanctuary counties.
  • Unemployment is, on average, 1.1 percent lower in sanctuary counties compared to nonsanctuary counties.
  • While the results hold true across sanctuary jurisdictions, the sanctuary counties with the smallest populations see the most pronounced effects.

Altogether, the data suggest that when local law enforcement focuses on keeping communities safe, rather than becoming entangled in federal immigration enforcement efforts, communities are safer and community members stay more engaged in the local economy. This in turn brings benefits to individual households, communities, counties, and the economy as a whole.


What this should imply is that sanctuary counties on average pay more in taxes than non-sanctuary counties. Therefore, if Trump is going to attack sanctuary policy by cutting federal funding, those affected could respond by ceasing to pay federal taxes, and conceivably end up financially better off than before. Why should sanctuary taxpayers continue to pay federal taxes anyway, when they will no longer allocated federal funds in return (and instead their tax money will apparently be spent on building Trump’s wall)?

In fact, Americans in general who did not vote for Trump (who campaigned on the promise of building a wall) would be entirely justified if they refused to pay federal taxes for the wall. The only people who have any reason to be paying for the wall are the Trump voters, since they are the ones who want it built.

If this message of refusing (with local government endorsement) to pay federal taxes can spread, it will provide positive incentive for more locations throughout the US to declare themselves sanctuaries also, thus bringing about the exact opposite of the disincentive that federal defunding was intended to be. Indeed, the money saved from federal taxes could be paid into a pan-sanctuary foundation instead! This would enable sanctuaries in need of extra money to be aided by sanctuaries with money to spare, strengthening the entire pan-sanctuary economy. We should even explore the possibility of establishing a pan-sanctuary currency as an alternative to US dollars!

In response to Lucius’ concern about Trump’s travel ban, I propose the incredibly simple solution of sanctuary airports! If individual airports simply choose to let through customs those people with passports from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen irrespective of whether or not Trump thinks they should be allowed in, is Trump going to drop bombs on these airports? PACPO needs to start contacting every international airport in the US, especially those located in sanctuary cities, petitioning them to take this heroic step, which in fact is nothing more than to just keep doing what they were already doing before Trump’s executive order was issued). Sanctuary airports should be presented as the 21st century version of the 19th century Underground Railroad:


(In the meantime, another way people from Trump’s banned countries can get into the US is simply to fly to Canada and then walk across the US-Canada border. Let’s see Trump try to build a wall along the length of the US’s northern border too!)

It doesn’t stop here. PACPO should be thinking about what other sanctuary institutions are needed, and proposing all of them in detail to the people on the ground who can choose to implement these ideas. And, I repeat one more time, every sanctuary must be defended from the Rehabs with firearms. Not protest signs, not chants, not sit-ins, but FIREARMS (ideally sniper rifles and DMRs, though any rifles will do). When I spoke of ressurecting Atlantis, I was being totally serious, and this is how you do it.

Finally Italy sets an example!

From June 2015:


If refugees need asylum, give it to them, but then simply make sure they pull their own weight by assigning all of them who are unable to find private-sector employment a sufficient schedule of compulsory state-organized labour to more than offset their living expenses. This not only makes it fair for taxpayers, but gives the refugees themselves respectability as contributing members of society (and hence worthy of citizenship eventually), and makes negativity towards them indefensible.

I had expected Italy to be the country to show the way to the rest of the EU for folkish treatment of refugees ever since seeing the positivity of Riace years ago, and now indeed we begin to see policy proposals on a national scale in the direction that we have been recommending ever since the refugee crisis began:


Italy is hosting around 175,000 migrants and refugees, who languish in reception centres for months or even years while their asylum requests are dealt with by an overwhelmed bureaucracy.

They often end up being exploited – in Sicily, young West African men are paid a pittance to pick fruit and vegetables, while young women are forced to prostitute themselves by the roadside to pay off debts incurred from their journeys through the Sahara and across the Mediterranean.

Marco Minniti, the interior minister, will present a plan in parliament on Wednesday by which migrants and refugees will be required to perform “socially useful” work while their claims are assessed, possibly as a condition to receive a weekly living allowance.

Some refugees already perform community service, such as sweeping the streets and maintaining parks and gardens, but until now the work has been on a purely volunteer basis.

“In our town they have been cleaning up the parks, helping to bring decorum to neglected areas,” said Luca Menesini, the mayor of Capannori, a town in Tuscany. “They’ve also made crafts, which were sold at the Christmas markets. It has allowed the foreigners to get to know us and for the locals to realise that not all migrants hang out at street corners, begging or talking on mobile phones.”

Matteo Biffoni, the mayor of Prato, also in Tuscany, said: “It would send a good message to Italians, who don’t appreciate seeing migrants doing nothing all day.”

Also check out this additional story linked from the first one:


The next obvious thing to do is for the Italian navy to start directly ferrying refugees across the Mediterranean so that they don’t incur debts to the shady human traffickers in the first place. Italy could charge a fee for this service to cover transport costs. As long as the fee is lower than what the traffickers charge, refugees would surely choose the state service (which would also be incomparably safer), Italy would be getting the refugees’ money (which they can later effectively give back to the refugees in exchange for their labour) instead of the traffickers (who probably change it to a whole other currency). It is all elementary economics. This too has been our repeated recommendation since the crisis began:



Further down the line, Italy (and all countries which have accepted refugees) should start putting as many refugees as possible into military service. This is a suitable timing for military consolidation by the EU (indeed I have said before that the EU needs an army of its own, or else it has no real power), because unless the EU has the courage to declare war on Hungary, I cannot see any other outcome than more and more other countries following the Hungarian approach. Why not, when they see that there is no practical penalty for doing so? Ethics? You cannot talk ethics to those who care nothing for ethics! All attempts to appeal to Hungary’s sense of basic decency have failed because Hungary has none – otherwise we wouldn’t be in this mess in the first place! Civilized discussion can only occur between states which care about the general good, and merely disagree about how best to effect it. As soon as one state starts to think tribally, discussion with that state is over and war preparations must begin. When the EU demands Hungary: “Stop blocking the refugees’ paths!”, and Hungary’s reply is the bully’s typical challenge to his victim: “Or else what?”, then unless the EU’s retort is: “Or else Ahimsa.”, the bully wins. This is reality; anything else is wishful delusion. Imagine if, instead of talking to Israel for the last 70 years, we had promptly invaded it before it had time to acquire nukes. (At least Hungary doesn’t have nukes….. yet. Are we going to wait until it gets some too???)

Support Nancy Holten!

Here is an anecdote that perfectly summarizes the inferiority of democracy, especially the Swiss version (as endorsed by Satya):


she wanted a Swiss passport herself, but was refused after locals who were consulted about her request said they were ‘fed up’ of her challenging Swiss traditions by campaigning against the use of cow bells.

The campaign against cow bells by the 42-year-old vegan and animal-rights activist has made her unpopular in the Alpine confederation.

And now the majority of residents from Gipf-Oberfrick in the canton of Aargau have successfully blocked her second attempt to get a Swiss passport.

The resident’s committee argued that if she does not accept Swiss traditions and the Swiss way of life, she should not be able to become an official national.

She said of her situation: ‘The sound that cow bells make is a hundred decibel. It is comparable with a pneumatic drill. We also would not want such a thing hanging close to our ears?’

She also railed against the weight of the famous cow bells.

Nancy complained: ‘The bells, which the cows have to wear when they walk to and from the pasture, are especially heavy.‘The animals carry around five kilograms around their neck. It causes friction and burns to their skin.’

The Dutchwoman, who describes herself as a freelance journalist, model and drama student, has also campaigned against a number of other Swiss traditions like hunting, pig races and the noisy church bells in town.

Local politician Tanja Suter agreed with the majority of the town’s citizens and said Holten had a ‘big mouth’, saying she did not deserve to get a Swiss passport ‘if she irritates us and does not respect our traditions’.

Local residents in Switzerland often have a say in citizenship applications, which are decided by the cantons and towns where the applicants live rather than federal government.

“A man of real political ability will refuse to be the beadle for a bevy of footling cacklers; and they in their turn, being the representatives of the majority – which means the dunder-headed multitude – hate nothing so much as a superior brain. … Let the superior quality of such a leader be once recognized and the result will be that a joint front will be organized against him, particularly if that leader, though not coming from their ranks, should fall into the habit of intermingling with these illustrious nincompoops on their own level. They want to have only their own company and will quickly take a hostile attitude towards any man who might show himself obviously above and beyond them when he mingles in their ranks. Their instinct, which is so blind in other directions, is very sharp in this particular.” – Adolf Hitler

“Ninety per cent of men (and women) are both lazy and cowardly, and out of sheer moral and intellectual apathy they behave just as circumstances suggest. They follow the apparently easiest way, that is to say, the common, long-trodden path. And the common, long-trodden path is suggested, if not determined, mainly by the race to which the overwhelming majority of the people belong in a given land. … It may be — and it is, in our eyes — a hateful thing. But it is a thing one has to take into account, because of its hold upon the insignificant little man who forms the majority of mankind; because of its appeal to public consciousness, which is not a criterion of truth — far from it! — but a condition of success, a guarantee of power.” – Savitri Devi

Western civilization is when an Asynja has to get permission from the majority population just to receive a passport of a country which in mythical times she would have been sent to rule over.

The face of Western civilization


President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for the next U.S. Ambassador to Israel is drawing wide-ranging reactions from jubilant praise to heated criticism.

Trump’s choice, David Friedman, holds distinctly conservative views in direct opposition to long-standing U.S. policy positions. Friedman opposes a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, actively supports Israeli settlements and advocates for Israel’s annexation of the West Bank, maintaining that the occupied Palestinian Territories are not occupied.

Friedman, who has no career experience with either policy or diplomacy, is an Orthodox Jewish lawyer who advised Trump during the campaign. A close friend and confidant of Trump, he specialized in bankruptcy law and represented Trump in his investments in Atlantic City casinos.

He serves as one of the co-chairmen of the Israel Advisory Committee to Trump, alongside Jason Greenblatt, another Orthodox Jewish lawyer from New York City.

In an op-ed Friday in Israel’s Haaretz newspaper, its U.S. editor Chemi Shalev argued that Friedman “makes Netanyahu seem like a left-wing defeatist.”

Netanyahu’s main political rival, Education Minister Naftali Bennett, wished Friedman good luck Friday, describing him as “a great friend of Israel.”

Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely “welcomed” the nomination of Friedman on her Facebook page Friday, describing it as “good news for Israel.”

Among those who have also congratulated Friedman is the Zionist Organization of America, whose president, Morton Klein, said Friedman has “the potential to be the greatest U.S. ambassador to Israel ever.”

Matt Brooks, executive director of the lobbying group Republican Jewish Coalition, tweeted “great choice!”

“David is someone who understands the President’s vision and will strengthen the US-Israel relationship,” Brooks wrote.

Friedman, as the president of the American Friends of Bet El Institutions, associated with the Jewish settlement of Bet El, has consistently and actively supported the construction of new settlements. Friedman, already a frequent visitor, also owns property in Jerusalem.

“I think the West Bank was captured from Jordan in a defensive war,” he told ABC News at an October Trump rally in Israel. “The Jordanians haven’t sought to repatriate that land so I think; I’m a lawyer, under international law I don’t think these settlements are illegal.”

Trump’s take: In an interview with Israel’s Army Radio, Jason Greenblatt, co-chairman of the Trump campaign’s Israel Advisory Committee, said, “It is certainly not Mr. Trump’s view that settlement activities should be condemned and that it is an obstacle for peace, because it is not an obstacle for peace.”

“The view is that the Israeli electorate is a peace-loving electorate, a very informed electorate,” he said. “They choose their leaders very carefully. It’s a very robust democracy and ultimately they have to live with the consequences. And so the position of the Trump Administration will be to support the decision of the Israeli people to achieve peace as they see fit.”

“The era of Palestinian State is over,” right-wing politician Naftali Bennett declared after the election.

He may be right.

Western civilization must die. If you want to help make this happen within our own lifetimes – trust me, it can be done; we just need enough people willing to do the work – please send in a contact form:

I warned about this years ago, and people called me paranoid:


Other than the bullying itself, what is most disgusting is the neo-Nazi appropriation of the swastika and Hitler’s name for bullying, which then turns good people away from National Socialism. At the same time as we support victims of bullying, let’s see if we can use this chance to inform more people than ever before about the difference between neo-Nazism and authentic National Socialism:


Also – and this is an order - every Aryanist in the US must wear a safety pin, starting today:


Posted in Aryan Sanctuary | 50 Comments

This is why we oppose democracy

Because it is only ever a matter of time before this happens:

And then this can happen:


No doubt this will create a knock-on effect in other countries also: far-rightists everywhere will be doing their best to ride on the coattails of Trump’s success to push their views even further into the mainstream. We might have thought Islamophobia and racism have been big problems ever since 9/11, but they are about to get much bigger.

(Not to mention that the US will soon have a First Lady who doesn’t even have an American accent FFS! Sure, we have more important things to discuss, but I consider this to have symbolic significance: Trump’s US will be a more Western, less American US (as if his proposed border wall, attitudes towards Putin, etc. had not already indicated this…..).)

And this is the point. You believers in democracy really thought the past 50 years of anti-racist education had any real use at all? Racism is genetic and anti-racism is genetic! Racists cannot ever be reformed through anti-racist education, and anti-racists like us never needed it in the first place! By believing that people can be educated, and thus can be trusted to vote ethically, you set up yourselves to crash headlong into this mess.

To our team members, now what? Now is the time to go among all the people shocked by the election result to let them know in no uncertain terms that the False Left has failed them and will continue to fail them henceforth because it had been deliberately designed to fail since the very beginning. Now is the time to to teach them as much about the True Left as they are able to learn, as this is what it will take to win back the ground that they are losing to rightists day by day and will continue to lose until they shape up. Now is the time when they will be most receptive to what we have to tell them, so it will be our fault if we do not seize this opportunity.

Lucius, my advice to you is that you launch your party site ASAP, even if it is not fully ready, and market it specifically to #notmypresident Americans. If you can strike while the iron is hot, posting links to your site at every location wherever #notmypresident Americans hang out, you could recruit new members rapidly and establish your party as the centre of the anti-Trump insurgency before others do so.


With the GOP in control of both the House and the Senate (and soon over the Supreme Court), the first two years of the Trump presidency will basically be unconstrained. Excepting the possibility of an anti-Trump military coup by heroic American soldiers, I say again what I have been saying for years now: if you are someone who might potentially be targeted by Trump, BUY FIREARMS (sniper rifles would be especially useful), TRAIN IN COMBAT TACTICS, and ORGANIZE PARAMILITARILY. If the Rehabs (Robocop 3 reference) start coming in to deport locals by force, what will determine whether they succeed is whether locals have the means – and the will - to stand their ground and shoot the Rehabs as soon as they so much as set foot in the neighbourhood. This is Ahimsa.

I want to close by replying to Van Jones:


“You tell your kids, don’t be a bully. You tell your kids, don’t be a bigot. You tell your kids, do your homework and be prepared,” Jones said on CNN. “Then you have this outcome, and you have people putting children to bed tonight. They’re afraid of breakfast. They’re afraid of ‘how do I explain this to my children.’”

The mistake was in associating ethical behaviour with worldly success. The truth is that if unethical behaviour were not a massively advantageous competitive strategy in the real world, no one – not even Trump – would bother with it. Bullies and bigots proliferate because they tend to be financially, socially and above all reproductively rewarded by natural selection over superior types, especially within Western civilization where reproductive success is based on largely free-market competition for reproductive partners. The PUA blogs never tire of telling their readers: ”Nice guys finish last!” – they are very much correct, especially within Western civilization. Or as someone else once put it infinitely more eloquently (shortly before he was crucified, which proves his point):

“If ye were of the world, the world would love its own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” – Jesus

We do what is ethical not because we expect to be rewarded with worldly success as a result of being ethical, but because we care about ethics. Of course we care about ethics so much that we also want worldly success with which we can finally build civilization according to our ethics. But we know that we cannot win by competing against bullies and bigots on their terms while retaining our ethics. There are therefore only two possible ways for us to win. The first way is by becoming bullies and bigots ourselves, and outdoing our rivals in bullying and bigotry. The second way is by using ruthless retaliatory violence to eliminate the bullies and bigots from the competition altogether before the competition has time to reach its natural result, including on the genetic level, thereby eliminating the need to ever again compete against them on their inferior terms. The first way – the PUA way - we will always refuse as a matter of principle. The second way is National Socialism:

“Since the inferior always outnumber the superior, the former would always increase more rapidly if they possessed the same capacities for survival and for the procreation of their kind; and the final consequence would be that the best in quality would be forced to recede into the background. Therefore a corrective measure in favour of the better quality must intervene. … The pacifist-humanitarian idea may indeed become an excellent one when the most superior type of manhood will have succeeded in subjugating the world to such an extent that this type is then sole master of the earth. This idea could have an injurious effect only in the measure according to which its application would become difficult and finally impossible. So, first of all, the fight and then pacifism.” - Adolf Hitler

Western civilization must die.

A review of refugee resettlement by numbers

While we have since last year already covered the laudable settlement of much larger numbers of refugees (especially in proportion to their existing populations) by countries as such as Lebanon and Jordan than by considerably richer EU countries:

On a more serious note, the level of dishonesty among rightists on the issue is staggering. One of the most common talking points I hear from rightists is the bald-faced lie that only Western countries are required to take in refugees. In fact, 86% of all current refugees are taken in by non-Western countries. Lebanon alone (citizen population 4 million) has taken in over a million refugees in recent years ie. 20% of its population are refugees. Jordan (citizen population 6.5 million) has taken in more than 2.6 million refugees ie. 40% of its population are refugees.

In comparison, the far-right notion that a million refugees in Germany (citizen poulation 80 million, not to mention its higher GDP/capita – Germany ~$46000 vs Lebanon ~$18000 or Jordan ~$12000) is already too many deserves to be met with utter derision. Germany could take 20 million refugees WITH EASE if it had the will to do so. But you won’t hear Merkel say this, because she is a coward who can’t even crush PEGIDA.

we had not previously covered refugee resettlement efforts by other poor countries which similarly put the EU’s meagre efforts to shame in comparison. On this topic, the following article provides much good information: 


Admittedly, a record 1.3 million refugees sought asylum within the European Union last year, with thousands more applying for asylum every month. Yet what of Sub-Saharan Africa, home to 4.4 million refugees and a whopping 19.5 million “people of concern” to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees?

Where is the rolling coverage of Kenya’s Dadaab camp, for example? Dadaab is the largest refugee camp in the world, but in a move that could displace as many as 300,000 people, Kenyan authorities are in the process of closing it down. It puts the recent British media frenzy over the so-called “Jungle” camp in Calais, France, with its 10,000 migrants, into some perspective, doesn’t it?

Compare and contrast Uganda and Denmark. The latter’s GDP per capita is about 77 times larger than the former’s. Yet in January, the enlightened Danes passed a law allowing the authorities to seize the jewelry of refugees, supposedly in order to cover the costs of hosting them.

Uganda’s 2006 Refugee Act, however, allows refugees in that country to work, travel and even start their own businesses. Is it any wonder that the law is, as a World Bank article put it, “considered one of the most progressive and generous in the world”?

Much has been made of Germany’s “open door” policy toward Syrian refugees, with more than a million migrants and refugees arriving in the country across the course of 2015. These newcomers, however, have struggled to find work given what an investigation by Der Spiegel called “the jumble of individual [immigration] laws and ordinances . . . completely impenetrable for foreigners” and the “17 different types of ‘residency permission,’ ‘residency permit’ and ‘tolerance’ for refugees and migrants.”

Tanzania, on the other hand — with little fanfare in the West and with a GDP per capita nearly 48 times smaller than Germany’s — began the process of granting citizenship to 200,000 refugees from Burundi back in 2014, marking, in the words of the UNHCR, “the largest group in UNHCR’s history to which naturalisation has been offered.”

Yet Europe’s refugee crisis continues to suck up all the oxygen of global publicity. The UNHCR fundraises for a whole host of “special situations” involving refugees. As of the end of October, the “Central African Republic situation” was 17 percent funded; the “Somalia situation” 21 percent funded and the “South Sudan situation” 25 percent funded. The “crisis in Europe,” however? Fifty-six percent funded.

The double standard is as brazen as it is shameful. Remember: The European Union accounts for 17 percent of global GDP; Sub-Saharan Africa accounts for a little more than 3 percent.

By the way, Uganda and Tanzania, and to a lesser extent Kenya, include the arable Nalubaale region:


the location of Kintu’s mythical kingdom, so we can expect Kabaka blood memory to be playing a role in this. Part of me imagines that perhaps Kintu might still be alive and volunteering in a refugee centre somewhere in the area…..

What a Zionist hatchet job looks like

As if there had ever been any doubt as to which candidate Jewry prefers…..


In-depth coverage:


As Gordon wrote yesterday, in his coverage of the Alex Jones attempt to boost Trump’s shattered credibility, Israel and the Zionist cabal are getting desperate, time is running out for them to influence the election in favour of their candidate. We have been expecting some kind of ‘October Surprise’ to happen, some kind of attempt to fatally undermine the Clinton campaign just as they did in 1979 to Jimmy Carter

Israel, via their Mossad disinfo operation Wikileaks have released more and more emails taken from Hilary’s email server. Invariably these emails have been modified, ‘sexed up’ in order to make Hilary look bad, all in an attempt to influence the US election in favour of Trump. As we have written several times already, there are no white hat hackers passing this info to Wikileaks, rather, the NSA has been monitoring all communications, passing the raw data to Tel-Aviv where the Mossad have filtered and vetted it in order to find anything they can use against Hilary, always with something added to make them seem more damning.

This makes the NSA guilty of treason, they are aiding and abetting a hostile foreign power in it’s attempts to exert a nefarious influence over US politics. Today, with this new set of emails, the FBI has joined them in committing treason; make no mistake, the timing and nature of this latest ‘revelation’ is a most cynical attempt to swing things in favour of Trump and in announcing this investigation with just 10 days to go until polling day, the FBI have acted on behalf of Israel.

Support Klaus Vogel!

Here is a civilian sailor with one ship doing what, in a sane world, the navies of every EU country would be doing with every spare ship they have:


I began coordinating the first rescue missions in February, and I have to say that the thing that has most deeply affected me has been my experience with people who are in grave danger and live in mortal fear. One cannot begin to imagine what that is like. It changes a person. It is clear to me and those that I work with that we have an obligation to rescue these people and to help them as best we can.

I am in fact devastated by the direction that the discussion in Europe has taken over the last year. At the same time I realize that those who talk like that simply don’t understand the situation – and cannot imagine it. But I hope that our work will help people to better understand it. We invite those who are in doubt to simply come along with us and experience it for themselves.

They would meet people who have been living in mortal danger for months, even years, and have no other options. They are people that have experienced the unimaginable in Libya. In the end, they put all their money on one card and have taken the risk of setting out to sea in a tiny inflatable. To make matters worse, most of these men and women can’t swim. When you see people like that, you suddenly understand that we have to find another way to let these people come to Europe rather than making them risk their lives. We must open our borders for people that are fleeing and are in danger.

If we create legal paths for these people to come to Europe, then they will not have to risk their lives in the hands of smugglers … The more open we are, the less dangerous traffickers there will be. But we must be fundamentally prepared to accept more refugees in Europe for that to happen.
