Salty Faces 1

No one leaves home unless
home is the mouth of a shark
you only run for the border
when you see the whole city running as well

you have to understand,
that no one puts their children in a boat
unless the water is safer than the land
i want to go home,
but home is the mouth of a shark
home is the barrel of the gun

Salty Faces 2

Many of those trying to migrate through Libya to Europe would rather die than be sent back from the sea to Libya through the so-called Libyan Coast Guard, a militia that is colluding with the European Union.

A young Syrian man from Daraa told me that he tried to cross four times, and each time they kidnapped him, they demanded a ransom of $1,700 from his family. His sister sold her last bracelet to ransom him.
A 15-year-old girl from Eritrea was raped and sexually exploited by them, and now she will suffer from an STD for the rest of her life.
A young man from Barzeh told me: “A man from the coast guard told me the first time they kidnapped me from the sea that they were doing this to save us from the land of the infidels, so I told him you are the infidels, so he slapped me.”

A 14-year-old boy froze to death as if we live in an apocalypse film.
Poland declared its border with Belarus as a semi military-restricted zone.
Declared the highest state of emergency in the country, denied access to press and humanitarian organizations. Deployed checkpoints at all entrances, exits and started pushing back migrants despite their asylum requests in violation of all international laws and norms.
Europeans and Belarusians throw the blame on each other on the podiums, while migrants struggle through the woods to abolish borders in the cold and darkness of this planet. Defying by that all these systems that exist by fear and bloodز

So-called “coast guard”

The Libyan Coast guard is a militia funded by the European Union whose mission is to protect the European borders from migrants who get arrested and pushed back to Lybia under the pretext of (rescue) where they are subjected to torture, slavery, rape, and death.
