为踏上欧洲大陆而丧生

伦敦——这个夏天,地中海一艘船上发生了可怕的悲剧。逃离危机蹂躏国的29名男人、女人和儿童在船舱中吸入了引擎废气。另外60人仓促逃离时,将他们运往欧洲的人贩用刀刺向他们,并把他们丢到兰佩杜萨岛沿岸的海里。最后,一艘丹麦油轮挽救了569生还者。

最近,约500名移民在马耳他海岸离开了人世,运送他们的人贩因为这些非法移民不肯换乘小船而故意撞沉了载着他们驶离埃及的船只。短短一周后,另一艘船在利比亚沿岸沉没,船上的数十名寻求庇护者遇难。

欧洲领土及其附近死那么多人不应只是短暂地成为报纸的头条新闻。但欧洲人似乎对避难者和移民的处境无动于衷,仅6月1号以后已经有超过1,600人死于地中海。这种状况无论从道德还是政治上都难以为继。
