  <br /> In Europe, social media like Facebook and Twitter are removing posts and bl=<br /> ocking authors opposing mass migration from the Third World as hate speech.=<br /> =20<br /> <br /> The hostile attitude to literally hundreds of thousands of Africans from Ni=<br /> geria, Morocco or Ghana flooding Italy, Sweden or Germany is considered ext=<br /> remist behaviour by them.=20<br /> <br /> At the same time Facebook and Twitter are instrumental in the biggest human=<br /> exodus in modern history.=20<br /> Social media have not been limited to a communication or marketing function=<br /> for a long time.=20<br /> Platforms like Facebook and Twitter contribute to the creation of the polit=<br /> ical situation, as the events related to the Arab Spring or Kiev=E2=80=99s =<br /> Euromaidan.=20<br /> Social networks have also become a channel that helps to organize the trans=<br /> fer of Africans to Europe.<br /> <br /> In 2017 a quarter of the people on the Earth have a Facebook account, of wh=<br /> ich 68% are under 35 years of age.<br /> Also in North African countries, this portal is very popular among almost h=<br /> alf of the population, above all among people below 35 years of age.<br /> It so happens that the age of 89% of people entering Europe from Libya acco=<br /> rding to official data does not exceed 40 years,which leads to the assumpti=<br /> on that the same age group most often uses the social networking site discu=<br /> ssed above.<br /> <br /> Facebook has become the smugglers=E2=80=99 channel for reaching out to peop=<br /> le interested in getting from Africa to Europe.=20<br /> <br /> How does it happen? Firstly, smugglers create accounts and pages on Faceboo=<br /> k where they advertise their services and give their phone number, as well =<br /> as recommend contacting them by WhatsApp application, which guarantees the =<br /> encryption of messages.=20<br /> Secondly, in order to authenticate their message, they publish pictures sho=<br /> wing preparations for the journey.=20<br /> Thirdly, they publish photos and reports of people who made it to European =<br /> countries, which is supposed to build trust on the side of potential client=<br /> s. Important information is also contained in comments under posts.=20<br /> Thanks to them you can find out, among others, who used the smugglers=E2=80=<br /> =99 services. In this way, through the grapevine, the rumours are spread ab=<br /> out planned relocation.=20<br /> <br /> Facebook posts confirm that the European Navy play an important role in one=<br /> of the largest exoduses in modern history.<br /> <br /> The ads inform about the participation of battleships or NGO vessels in =E2=<br /> =80=9Crescue=E2=80=9D actions. Several times there was also information tha=<br /> t the only thing smugglers had to do was reach the place where the navy shi=<br /> ps would appear in a few hours.=20<br /> <br /> Such messages leave many questions about the involvement of NGOs or naval f=<br /> orces of European countries. The previous analyses of Gefira team have reve=<br /> aled an important role played by NGOs in the operations of transferring ill=<br /> egal immigrants.<br /> <br /> Il canale di Sicilia &quot;allargato&quot; dai media<br /> https://gefira.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/mapb.jpg<br /> <br /> There have been reports before that NGOs offer help in a way that is not tr=<br /> ansparent enough.<br /> 5)The European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex) also indicates that =<br /> cooperation with non-governmental organizations is ineffectual.<br /> 6)The map above shows the locations of rescue operations carried out by the=<br /> organization Doctors Without Borders, of which the vast majority took plac=<br /> e near the Libyan territorial waters. The rescued people were mostly transp=<br /> orted to Italy, not to African or Maltese ports which are definitely closer=<br /> ..<br /> 7)We might ask whether a Swedish ship participating in the rescue of a boat=<br /> with German passengers located 20-30 kilometers off the German coast would=<br /> transport survivors to Sweden or Germany?<br /> <br /> Doubts arise concerning the role of Frontex, whose ships transport immigran=<br /> ts from boats drifting near the Libyan coast directly to the centers locate=<br /> d in Southern Europe. The =E2=80=9CSophia=E2=80=9D operations involving bat=<br /> tleships also arouse suspicions. The navy=E2=80=99s aim is to combat smuggl=<br /> ers in the Mediterranean and rescue illegal immigrants. The observation of =<br /> smugglers=E2=80=99 profiles on social networks reveals the connections betw=<br /> een rescuing immigrants and their transport by smugglers.<br /> <br /> According to the information published on smugglers=E2=80=99 Facebook profi=<br /> les, the cost of being transferred to Europe is $400 per person if the jour=<br /> ney starts from Tunisia or $1000 from Libya (data from March 2016).=20<br /> Families can have discounts. The extent of this business is illustrated by =<br /> numbers. In July 2017 11,5 thousand people arrived from Libya in Italy (tha=<br /> t number was twice as high in the same month a year earlier).<br /> 8)If the black-market price amounts to $1000, then in one month smuggling o=<br /> rganizations (and other entities involved) can earn up to $11.5 million. Th=<br /> e scale of these actions makes one wonder if they are not coordinated. It h=<br /> as already been revealed that =E2=80=9Erefugees=E2=80=9D had phone numbers =<br /> of non-governmental organizations to announce their arrivals.<br /> 9) An intriguing situation occurred at the beginning of last month.=20<br /> On 2nd of December, an announcement on the smugglers=E2=80=99 Facebook prof=<br /> ile appeared that a =E2=80=9Ctrip=E2=80=9D from Libya to Italy was planned,=<br /> which would be on 6th of December.=20<br /> On 7th of December an update appeared indicating that the smuggling under p=<br /> reparation would start on the same day. The post was published in the after=<br /> noon, so it could be presumed that the operation began in the evening or at=<br /> night.=20<br /> A day later, i.e. 8th of December in the early afternoon, Frontex published=<br /> on its Twitter page the information that the ship Olympic Commander was in=<br /> volved in patrolling sea borders and saved 78 people.=20<br /> Of course, there is no proof that these people were taken from the boat ref=<br /> erred to above, as there is no proof that Frontext knew that there was a sh=<br /> ip coming. People smugglers had broadcast a message in advance that they we=<br /> re leaving a port in Libya and then would be picked up by the European navy=<br /> and NGOs. Now there arises the question whether we are dealing with a genu=<br /> ine rescue operation or an illegal and dangerous transfer at high seas.<br /> <br /> Situation from the beginning of December on organized smuggling from Libya =<br /> to Europe and rescue operations as part of the Frontex missions.<br /> Source: Twitter, Facebook.<br /> <br /> NGOs and the people smugglers use Saul Alisnky =E2=80=9CRules for Radicals=<br /> =E2=80=9D number 4 =E2=80=9CMake the enemy live up to its own book of rules=<br /> ..=E2=80=9D=20<br /> The law of the sea states that =E2=80=9CEvery master is bound, so far as he=<br /> can do so without serious danger to his vessel, her crew and passengers, t=<br /> o render assistance to everybody, even though an enemy, found at sea in dan=<br /> ger of being lost.=E2=80=9D=20<br /> People smugglers, the European Union, NGOs and Frontex are making a mockery=<br /> of the law of the sea, and for that they should be held responsible.=20<br /> The massive transport operation that already brought six hundred thousand p=<br /> eople from Libya to Italy since 2014, promoted and coordinated by modern co=<br /> mmunication tools like Twitter and Facebook, can hardly be regarded as genu=<br /> ine rescue operations.<br /> <br /> Last winter we proved the participation of non-governmental organizations i=<br /> n the smuggling of immigrants.<br /> 10)Currently, through social media, we can not only follow NGOs activities,=<br /> but also the way of communication between smugglers and their clients.=20<br /> Exploring this subject entails new questions. All =E2=80=9Crescue operation=<br /> s=E2=80=9D seem to have been well organized.<br /> <br /> Chissa' se Ilin ha maggiori dettagli.<br />
