  • A rescue ship with 234 refugees and migrants on board is heading to France, hoping to secure a safe port after Italy's new far-right government refused to provide entry.
    Italy has allowed several refugees and migrants from three other rescue charity boats to disembark, including hundreds who were barred earlier because the government deemed them 'not vulnerable'.

    Al Jazeera's @Tony Birtley reports from the Sicilian port of Catania, Italy.

    When the going gets tuff, the tuff gets goings…what kind of coward don’t fight for they‘re country. You don’t run away you face and fight. No sympathy for coward.

    Paulson Ighalo says:

    I think the Italian government needs better immigration advice which i can offer them to solve migration issues permanently …

    Sion Barzad says:

    Jumping from one legal loophole to another. It has to stop.

    MW3Mydropzone says:

    Send these illegal immigrants back and if the captains refuse lock them up and get other captains to pilot the ships

    Miles Dugmore says:

    @Solomon Nadar yes.. and I think a number of other countries would follow, well at least their voters would wish this… then just watch the picture change and people screaming from the mountain tops…

    Solomon Nadar says:

    @Miles Dugmore Sure. But a really large number of countries will follow that. My country India was forced to take around 10 million Bangladeshi refugees in just over 3 months. Even now, we are forced to take Rohingyas. India refused to sign the convention and chose a strange method where refugees are not legal but they are not persecuted either. In a sense they are in legal limbo and hence at the mercy of the government and the courts. Fundamental rights are guaranteed since they are given to anyone within the territory, but nothing else. There was an uproar when our border police shot a family and 15 year old Bangladeshi girl was left hanging on the fence for some days. Countries like India would resume that if countries in the West withdraw from their conventions, especially when we have right wing governments now in India as well.

    Miles Dugmore says:

    @Solomon Nadar India has a population of 1,350 million.. correct… Italy has a population of 50 million. Did you fail at maths ? And this is not just one ship load, they also travel by land to get to Italy, from Serbia – I know I have had one person from Sierra Leone who contacted me from a Serbian refugee camp, and he was determined to get to Italy. Is any of this sinking in ? So you tell me why India decided to accept these 10 million Bangladeshis – Bangladesh is not at war. But then also, India has had the same population explosion as Bangladesh.. there has been NO population explosion in Europe – are you getting the picture yet ? I would not be crying if India did not accept those from Bangladesh. Why are you being “forced” to take the Rohingyas ? Now the sick joke here, is that I have heard people saying where is the UN (meaning the US and other western countries) ? So tell me, why are the countries of South and SE Asia not sorting the problem out in Myanmar then they can all go back… can you explain anything as I am not even clear what your point is ??? I am all ears…

    Miles Dugmore says:

    @Solomon Nadar so you don’t want to explain yourself?? Par for the course but I thought you had more insight than the average..

    Solomon Nadar says:

    @Miles Dugmore For some reason your last essay did not pop up in my notification. So keep that snide comments to yourself.

    India is a Union like the EU and my passport says Union of India. In fact we were designed after the USSR. Each state is the size of a country in the EU. The population of West Bengal which took much of the refugees was at that time 44 million. The state is the size of Portugal for your reference. Also, India was much poorer then. You should probably have a better course on international geography. So no, Italy is not special here.
    Bangladesh was East Pakistan at that time ie 1971. These were refugees created during genocide+war in which we were not involved in the start. We were on one hand forced to take the refugees by UN mandate and on the other hand threatened by UK, US nuclear subs if we interfered to stop the genocide because Pakistan was a US ally with a grouping like the NATO. The Soviets threatening to nuke the US, UK back and India interfering is what finally shut the genocide down. The UN is still forcing us to accept Rohingyas though the pressure is less since Western countries do not want them either.

    As for Myanmar, I do not care. Just do not tell us to take their refugees. We are not a dumping ground either. If you feel sympathy, take them in. The root cause of that issue lies in colonialism and random drawing of borders. We did not draw them, so we do not have the baggage either. If you do not feel sympathy, own the mistakes of the colonial powers and also that you folks refuse to take responsibility. It will be easier for the newer powers to do power grabs that way.

    The point was, Western countries use these convention rules as trade war tools. When it is arbitrary, then it fails the WTO test. Hence they cling to these conventions. If Italy or the West do withdraw from those conventions, and still complain about products made by Xinjiang, Dalits etc., block products and China, India do a trade retaliation, it will be fine according to WTO. Not to mention, China does not care about countries oppressing their people and India would not care if the West did not care.

    Sonia Fell says:

    I thought they would test this government.

    George Bronte says:

    Yes, didn’t take long did it?

    Rep Gen 2000 says:

    Italian navy and coast guards should divert ships towards middle east

    There will be plenty of new Borns, in next 3-4 years . They get citizenship automatically

    David King says:

    Disgusting how these ships can do what they want. More heading towards the uk

    Rosemarie Cardin says:

    🤣🤣🤣 you’re blaming a ship.

    Michael Davies says:

    I didn’t think that Italy would cave in ,a bit of a let down now they will end up in Europe..

    Thomas Thomas Philp says:

    Qatar, UAE, Saudi Arabia and Oman also should take Syrian refugees. They take 0 refugees

    Miles Dugmore says:

    don’t forget Russia as Russia is responsible for the trouble in Syria more than anyone else…

    Muhammad Farhun says:

    Lol living under the rock are you there are thousands of Syrians taking refugee in other arabs country even before the mass migration to Europe. Moss of these migrants in these later years are for economic purpose not beacuse of war.

    James says:

    It’s their fault they are this situation the women are a disgrace having child after child to use as blackmail !

    sonny's view says:

    Hope EU knows they are playing with rules and looking for loop holes, why don’t these ( Muslim brothers and sisters ) go to ultra rich and hugely empty rich middle eastern countries ??? Will Saudi Arabia , Qatar , Bahrain , UAE will take these refugees ? Same language , same religion ?? Will they ?

    Squizi says:

    Rich countries in Gulf are disgusted with these people

    Sid Perry says:

    More on the way to the UK , why not sail staight to the UK it will save them a lot of time and money sorting out smugglers. I would love to live in New Zealand but would not be able to get in because of my age , may be I should get a flight there and then go on hunger strick till they say I can stay.

    Ellis Meah says:

    If your not a Muslim you wouldn’t get into ,NZealand

    Gokul Raj says:

    Stand with Italy. It’s not a charity institution. It’s a country which will first provide for their citizens.

    keith winters says:

    Can’t help everybody all the time.
    Too many is exactly that.

    Tanmay Patra says:

    The ships are from Norway and Germany.. They should dock there ..

    Shirley Ottewell says:

    Well done Italy

    Janet Calderwood says:

    Luv and good luck to Italy from UK wish UK had the balls to tackle this elephant in the room issue . Hunger strike ??? Let them dont bow down to them stay strong Italy

    IsayIt says:

    Why can’t they go to Germany and Norway where the ships are from – how can other countries dictate to Italy what to do in its own country.

    Barbara Hoferichter says:

    Stay strong Italy.

    Alan Race says:

    We’ll done Italy …. At last a country and government who puts their own country first.

    xyz987123abc says:

    Arrest and imprison for life everyone working on the boats and auction off the boats.

    Send them to Monaco, they have plenty of resources.
