Sea-Watch: Complete Footage of Libyan Coast Guard Escalation During Rescue on November 6, 2017
Sea Watch wrote on their Facebook page: “While the Sea-Watch 3 is working with European military forces to rescue as many people as possible, the ”Libyan Coast Guard” is escalating the situation.
People are beaten, families torn apart, children separated from their parents, people drown.
Before a further expansion of the EU training the Libyan Coast Guard, the EU needs to make clear everyone involved has to act in compliance with international law. But Europe is silent because the daily human rights violations are in the sense of foreclosure policy.
In the video release of our footage you can get a picture of the incident.”
