Surviving One of the Deadliest Routes to Europe: Refugees at Sea
 
31:40
Desperate to escape conflict and poverty, thousands of migrants and refugees attempt the perilous journey to Europe each year, with many crossing the Mediterranean Sea from North Africa in rubber dinghies and wooden boats. In the wake of the decommissioning of Mare Nostrum, a search and rescue operation run by Italy, the humanitarian organization Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), launched their own vessel, named the Bourbon Argos, to find those stranded at sea and save those in trouble on one of the deadliest routes to Europe. On board the vessel, refugees and migrants are provided with medical aid, food, and shelter, then brought safely to Italian shores. Having survived life in Libya, ruthless treatment by smugglers, and horrific conditions aboard flimsy boats, once aboard the Bourbon Argos they face yet more uncertainty as they approach Europe. VICE News teamed up with MSF to document these search and rescue missions in the Mediterranean and speak to rescued refugees and migrants, hearing about the suffering they have endured in their attempts to reach a new life.

Italy Is Paying Libya To Intercept Migrants On The Mediterranean (HBO)
 
09:22
In the first six months of 2017, the number of migrants crossing the Mediterranean from Libya to Italy dropped by around half. This drastic fall in numbers was likely a result of the $236 million deal signed in February, in which Italy funds and trains the Libyan coastguards to divert migrants right back to Libya. While the Italian government sees this as reason for celebration, the brunt of the migration crisis is now firmly on Libya. This is a problem given that the UN-backed Libyan Government of National Accord doesn't have the means to effectively handle migrant trafficking and relies on the country's 1,700 militias to do the job for them. By outsourcing this work to armed groups who themselves are implicated in smuggling, a bloody power struggle has erupted. Vice News Tonight was the first foreign media to reach Libya's migrant smuggling epicenter of Sabratha, and met the migrants caught up in the mayhem.

Atlantic and Pacific oceans joining at a point in mid ocean but do not mix each other | Unbelievable
 
01:28
On the temperature, salinity, and density differences between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans in the upper kilometre. Abstract The surface of the Pacific Ocean stands about 40 cm higher than the Atlantic Ocean with respect to the 1000-decibar surface, and the North Atlantic and North Pacific stand respectively about 14 and 17 cm higher than the South Atlantic and Pacific. The North Atlantic is warmest and saltiest, the South Atlantic is coldest and densest, and the North Pacific is least dense and least salty. The extreme values in temperature and salinity of the North Atlantic are probably related to the formation of the deep water there, which carries away from the upper layer the cold water of relatively low salinity. If this water spreads into the South Atlantic at depth and is replaced with warm saline surface water from the South Atlantic via the South Equatorial Current and the Gulf Stream, then the South Atlantic should be substantially cooler and less salty. The difference in density and sea level of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans may stem from the difference in latitude of the southern tips of America, Africa, and Australia, and the constriction of the west wind drift at Drake Strait. Only the densest surface waters of the Pacific pass through to the Atlantic, while lighter waters from lower latitudes of the South Atlantic pass eastward south of Africa. Further, the constriction of the flow by Drake Strait may result in a higher sea level on the Pacific side through the effect of Windstau (Montgomery, 1938). The density difference between the southern and northern oceans may be partly a consequence of the west wind drift around Antarctica. This is the greatest current of all oceans. Its flow is approximately geostrophically balanced and the surface slopes down to the south. The northern west wind drifts are not so strong, are at lower latitudes, and the high latitude flow is westward with slope upward to the north. These differences are not confined to the upper thousand metres. The average density difference between the Atlantic and the Pacific from the surface to the bottom is about 17 × 10−5 g/cm3. Referred to some deep surface such as 4000 decibars, the Pacific stands about 68 cm higher than the Atlantic.

The boat, operated by the nonprofit group Proactiva Open Arms, docked at the Spanish port of Algeciras on Friday. The boat rescued the migrants in waters near Libya last week, but had to travel to Spain after Malta denied it permission to dock and Italy and other countries refused to help. In June, Spain opened its ports to another aid ship belonging to SOS Mediterranee Sea and Doctors Without Borders carrying over 600 rescued migrants after Italy and Malta refused to let it dock. According to the UN refugee agency, over 2,200 migrants have died trying to cross the Mediterranean this year in unseaworthy smugglers' boats. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: [email protected] (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

The Refugee Journey Across the Mediterranean
 
02:57
Four months since the Dignity I searchand rescue ship sailed from Barcelona to Sicily and then into a search and rescue zone 30 miles of the Libyan coast, the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) team onboard have saved more than 5,000 people from dying in the Mediterranean Sea. Every week, more people set off on this dangerous sea journey from Africa to Europe. All together the three MSF vessels—the Dignity I, the Bourbon Argos and MY Phoenix—which have been operating since as early as May, have assisted more than 17,000 people. Yet these numbers don’t explain what can push a person to make such a journey. The MSF team on board of Dignity I has been collecting stories and testimonies of those rescued in an attempt to see what lies beyond the numbers. This is what Laura Pasquero, an MSF humanitarian officer who has interviewed more than 100 people so far, says: “Through the people we talk to, we rescue the stories of their friends and family members who often don’t make it, for they die in the desert, or at sea, or in one of Libya’s prisons. When we talk to people about the boat trip on the sea to Europe, two things come out constantly from all the stories: that the boat trip was their only option to save their life, and that on the boat they were almost sure they were going to die. It looks like a contradiction. But it’s their reality.” Read more about MSF's work with refugees in the Mediterranean: https://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/our-work/humanitarian-issues/refugees-and-idps
How natural gas could be a geopolitical game-changer in the Mideast
 
36:26
Subscribe to France 24 now: http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN It's a discovery that could easily shake up the geopolitical order in the Middle East. Deep under the eastern Mediterranean lies the largest natural gas basin ever found on Europe's doorstep. But the gas fields often coincide with disputed borders between rival nations. Our reporter Marine Pradel investigated this lucrative resource, which everyone wants a piece of. The billions of cubic metres of natural gas discovered in recent years off Israel, Egypt and Cyprus form what is now called the "Levantine Basin", the largest natural gas reservoir within easy reach of Europe. The first major deposit, known as Tamar, was discovered in 2009 off the coast of Haifa, Israel, by a consortium made up of Noble Energy (US) and Delek-Avner (Israel). Other gas fields were later discovered in the same zone of the "Levantine Basin": Leviathan (Israel), Aphrodite (Cyprus), but most importantly Zohr, in 2015 off the coast of Egypt: the largest gas field ever discovered in the Mediterranean, larger than all the others combined. It was found by the Italian oil giant ENI, which has already started to exploit it and is aiming to start production by the end of 2017. Meanwhile, Israel, supported by its US ally, is drilling away, driven by a free-market and idealistic vision: exploiting the gas will oblige the countries of the region to co-operate as business partners, which will in turn create peace and stability. But the gas under the Mediterranean Sea may also carry within it the seeds of new conflicts. On the divided island of Cyprus, it threatens reunification efforts. In Lebanon, its location - straddling the disputed maritime boundary with Israel - boosts the belligerent rhetoric of the armed Hezbollah group. It is hoped the gas could be worth billions of dollars, and all eyes are on the highly coveted European gas market, which Russia would like to keep for itself. Speaking to FRANCE 24 in Washington, the US Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs summarised the situation. “All of a sudden, it’s not just a bunch of fishermen that care about those waters. Suddenly, there’s billions and billions of dollars”, he explained. The stakes are certainly high. In total, nearly 3,500 billion cubic metres of natural gas could lie under the eastern Mediterranean, according to a study by the US Geological Survey. From Egypt to Syria via Lebanon, Israel and Cyprus, our reporter investigated this precious resource, a double-edged sword that awakens old Cold War reflexes and could well upset the geopolitical order of an already unstable region.

MSF Rescues 800 from Smugglers' Boats in the Mediterranean
 
01:41
On August 26, a Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) rescue ship, the Bourbon Argos, completed two rescue operations, saving some 800 refugees from smugglers' boats in the Mediterranean Sea. The first boat was a large wooden fishing boat in distress with approximately 650 people on board; the second was a rubber boat first spotted by a Tunisian fishing vessel, carrying about 150 people. After the rescues, the Bourbon Argos began its journey with around 800 people, most of them from Syria, along with people from Ivory Coast, Mali, Cameroon, Nigeria, Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, towards the port of Vibo Valentia in Italy.

Over 1,000 migrants rescued in the Med
 
02:03
(21 Jul 2016) Rescue boats recovered the bodies of 17 migrants and plucked 1,128 survivors from the Mediterranean Sea, south of Sicily on Thursday, a day after 22 corpses were found at the bottom of a smugglers' boat. The Italian coast guard, which coordinated Thursday's rescues, said the operation took on survivors from five rubber dinghies, a larger boat and two small boats. The rescues took place as a separate vessel was bringing the 17 bodies discovered a day earlier at sea near Sicily, where the corpses were expected to arrive on Friday. Meanwhile, the humanitarian organisation, Doctors Without Borders, said the bodies of 21 women and one man were found in a pool of fuel at the bottom of another smugglers' boat. That same rescue effort saved 209 people who were aboard two rubber dinghies. By Thursday evening, the coast guard reported that nearly 1,700 migrants had been rescued in a two-day period. Vessels from non-government organisations, national military fleets and passing cargo ships have been rescuing migrants daily over the past two years from unseaworthy smuggling boats launched from Libya's lawless shores.

MSF vessel rescues migrants in Mediterranean
 
04:45
(23 Jun 2016) More than 130 migrants were rescued from choppy waters in the Mediterranean Sea on Thursday after they were found floating off the coast of Libya during a joint rescue operation by Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) and SOS Mediterranee (SOS Mediterranean). Packed into an overcrowded inflatable raft, the desperate group were dragged aboard the 'Aquarius' ship and given medical treatment. 38-year-old Liberian migrant Musa Fafani was one of the 132 migrants making the perilous journey. He said he'd made the trip after he lost his family during the Ebola crisis. The rescue operations were part of efforts that on Thursday alone saw some 4,000 migrants saved, according to the Italian coast guard. The Italian navy said a new wave of migrant smugglers' boats that set out from Libyan shores and needed rescuing includes 31 rubber dinghies. A navy statement says five of its boats helped in the rescue of 14 of the dinghies, for a total of 1,800 men, women and children saved. Migrants aboard the other dinghies were rescued by vessels from the Italian coast guard, a European anti-smuggling naval deployment and ships operated by private aid organisations. Authorities say Libya-based smugglers concentrated the departures of boats crowded with migrants in a single day because rough seas earlier in the week had prevented launching the unseaworthy fleet.

Each year thousands of people cross the Mediterranean sea in clandestinity, taking risks in an absourd journey of hope. Transcending the borders, they leave their land, their roots, their traditions, to move to Italy that promises a better life. But Italy is a ship that is slowly sinking.

🇳🇪  Niger: Europe Migration | People and Power
 
26:01
Niger has long been a key staging point for migrants and asylum seekers from sub-Saharan West Africa, but the traffic reached a peak in 2015/16 when the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) estimated that 330,000 people followed the desert routes north - through often inhospitable country - to reach Libya or Algeria, and then the Mediterranean coast and sea crossings to Europe. The exponential growth mostly came about because the chaotic descent of Libya into civil conflict in the years after the Arab Spring opened up new routes and border crossings and made it easier for people traffickers to operate in the security vacuum, but it also flourished because it generated significant income and employment for northern Niger and its largest city, Agadez. Much of this was from the perfectly legitimate businesses - in transport and accommodation - that sprang up to service and feed off and then further develop the migrant trade. The increased wealth was welcomed because it helped bring back a measure of stability to an area that had seen its own insurgency during the Tuareg Rebellion of 2007-2009 and which had been struggling economically in the aftermath. But even as the traffic was burgeoning, the Nigerien government was coming under pressure from the European Union, which was keen to find a response to the alarming flows of people coming across the Mediterranean. Close to its own maritime borders the EU began working with the Libyan coastguard and others to refashion methods of deterring that sea borne traffic, but it also looked for innovative ways of stemming the movement of people on land much further south. So, to the grateful relief of the EU, Niger passed new anti-smuggling laws. In early 2016, its interior minister Mohamed Bazoum ordered their implementation across the country, sending police out to arrest smugglers (most of whom, of course, had previously been operating within locals laws) and confiscating hordes of the ubiquitous pick-up trucks that drivers had become used to piling high with lucrative migrant passengers. The new laws quickly began making a big dent in the migrant flow, bringing down the number of travelers passing through Agadez from around 24,000 a month in 2016 to around 5500 a month in 2017. But there have been other consequences and many of them difficult for Niger. The economic fallout for the north of the country has been considerable - with revenues in Agadez alone being reduced by around $117 million a year, according to the IOM. Indeed the losses across the area have been so significant that the EU has had to offer $635 million to compensate those who had once made a living out of migration through a reconversion plan involving business grants and loans and other support, although so far the difficulties of qualifying for any such support seem to be keeping the take-up of these opportunities to a minimum. Moreover, where previously migrants were able to move openly, they now have to use clandestine back routes through remote desert country to avoid villages and police patrols. This is dangerous. The UN roughly estimates that for every migrant death in the Mediterranean sea, now two die in the Sahara desert. Meanwhile, community leaders fear that youth unemployment and the lack of long-term investment (notwithstanding the EU's struggling compensation scheme) to develop alternative economic models could lead to increasing criminality and insecurity. With the migrant traffic suppressed, police warn that drug trafficking is becoming an ever more attractive option and elders fear that idle young men who would once have worked in the migration trade could now easily fall prey to the competing radical attractions of Boko Haram or Daesh, which pose a growing threat across this part of West Africa. So how to best assess the EU's apparent attempt to push Europe's borders this far south? Niger is rated as one of the world's least-developed nations by the UN, but is it now paying too high a price for Europe's anti-immigration policies? We sent correspondent Juliana Ruhfus and filmmakers Marco Salustro and Victoria Baux to find out.

Mediterranean Migrant Rescue
 
01:21:59
This presentation was related with the Social Movements Lab co-directors Michael Hardt and Sandro Mezzadra's ongoing migrant rescue ship project in the Mediterranean (called Mediterranea Saving Humans: https://mediterranearescue.org/en/), to other migrant rescue projects (such as No More Deaths in Arizona along the US-Mexico Border) in order to think about migration and borders in a broader context. In particular, this conversation situated the context of migration in Europe in relation to growing racism and the development of right-wing movements and governments. This discussion considered water (or lack of water) as border; the tension between international law, state law, and the law of the sea; and how the state uses landscapes and/or bodies of water as weapons against migrants. About the speakers: Michael Hardt teaches political theory in the Program in Literature at Duke University. His writings explore the new forms of domination in the contemporary world as well as the social movements and other forces of liberation that resist them. Sandro Mezzadra teaches postcolonial studies and contemporary political theory at the University of Bologna. He has published widely on the areas of migration, postcolonial theory, contemporary capitalism, Italian operaismo and autonomist Marxism. Cosponsored by the Program in Literature, the Department of Romance Studies, the Social Movements Lab at the Franklin Humanities Institute, and the Representing Migration Humanities Lab.
The World's Strangest Borders Part 1: Panhandles

Borders sometimes look pretty strange on a map. Usually, borders exist where there is a river, a mountain range or some other geographical feature. But other times, borders are complete creations of politics or old history and often times look pretty strange. This video is about five of the strangest looking panhandles found in global borders; a panhandle being a part of a country that juts out away from the rest of the country.

This is the most over-fished sea in the world | The Economist
 
05:50
The Mediterranean supports countries in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa—but its fish stocks are almost completely collapsed. Meet the man who is leading attempts to revive its marine habitats. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: https://econ.st/2xvTKdy This is the extraordinary story of one man’s dream to save the most over-fished sea in the world. Zafer Kizilkaya has almost single handedly turned a ravaged bay in Turkey into one of the most effective and thriving marine conservation areas in the Mediterranean. His hope is to inspire others to bring marine life back to one of the most famous but damaged parts of the ocean. It’s a chilly December morning on Turkey’s eastern-Mediterranean coast and Zafer Kizilkaya is a man on a mission. He’s dedicated to enforcing the no-fishing zones that he has helped create here in Gokova Bay. Within just 20 minutes Zafer and one of his rangers have spotted something suspicious. Since marine conservationist Zafer set up the ranger system here in partnership with the Turkish authorities they’ve seen a significant drop in illegal fishing. It all began after Zafer first visited Gokova Bay in 2008 on a research trip from his home city of Istanbul. The damage he witnessed to marine life compelled him to stay and devote his life to repairing this. Zafer lobbied his government to make the bay a protected area and ten years on his research suggests marine life has increased by 800% within his no-fishing zones. But the revival faced another threat new species of fish coming into the Mediterranean through the Suez Canal. These invaders were eating the native fishes’ food and grazing parts of the seabed bare so Zafer had to adapt and come up with an innovative solution. To make this work, he had to hook the local population into eating these unfamiliar fish and that meant persuading people to change their diets. Zafer’s vision has delivered the bonus of raising the incomes of local fisher people by 400% and bringing a previously decimated industry back to life. Visit the fishing co-operative here and you’ll find an array of invasive species for sale caught outside the no-fishing zones. Zafer’s innovations have delivered for both people and planet in this small bay and he’s now working to create another marine protected area in Turkey. It looks like a lonely mission. Latest figures show just 0.04% of the Mediterranean is a no-fishing zone 50 times lower than the average for the whole ocean. Zafer is going to need all the help he can get.

Sea of death On patrol with Europes border agency in the Mediterranean
 
03:51
The Portuguese CASA 295 military plane lifts off from an airstrip in Sicily and roars into the skies above the Mediterranean, scouring the blue seas below for signs of life. The state-of-the-art surveillance aircraft is flying for Frontex, the European Union's border patrol agency. Its mission isn't only to stop people from being smuggling onto the continent's southern shores -- it's to save lives. The plane patrols the Mediterranean Sea south of Sicily, including the area around Lampedusa, an Italian island near the African coast that migrants have been trying to reach in often unseaworthy boats. In October more than 300 migrants died when their boat capsized near these shores, and Frontex is hoping to prevent that from happening again.

Video: Niger’s Agadez, gateway to exile

Subscribe to France 24 now : http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN Agadez, the largest city in central Niger, has become one of the main transit points for illegal migrants from West Africa who dream of Europe. We bring you an exceptional documentary about this little-known precarious crossing, unavoidable for migrants on their way to the European continent. It’s a road filled with hope and tragedy, and above all with danger. Every week, more than 12,000 men, women and children from West Africa take the road from Agadez, Niger's central metropolis, to Europe. They are fleeing poverty and the lack of prospects in their home countries. But Agadez is only the first step in their long and dangerous journey. First they have to cross the desert, then Libya – where they are often arrested by police – and finally the Mediterranean Sea on rickety boats. Many of them never reach their final destination. Our reporters, Catherine Norris-Trent and Julien Sauvaget, travelled to Niger to meet these men and women who dream of a better life in Europe. Our journalists were given rare access to the "ghettos" of Agadez, including the houses where migrants wait before continuing their journey. They were also able to film how this illegal trafficking is organised, speaking to people smugglers before joining the migrants to board pick-up trucks launched at full speed across Niger’s Ténéré desert.
