"When Europe is hard... if, Europe is hard... back there (Africa) it is fire.. it's hell"
Indefinite military service
That's the push
The pull is the lure of a good life
The life of an African migrant can be deeply distressing
Things are getting tougher
Prepared to die, many cross lands and seas
Exploited by people traffickers, treated poorly by 'host nations'
Europe simply has to take them in I say...
Will it be a strain on resources?.. maybe..
..but.. richer countries have exploited the poorer for some time now.
Let them come
We need to make it easier and safer for others to come here legally. But more importantly, their reasons for leaving their home countries surely is the biggest issue, one which needs addressing
We need ethical capitalism, ethical governments and governance
This simply can't go on.
It's everyone's problem.. or at least .. it will be.
Too many wars, too much corruption and not enough fairness, understanding and tolerance
..but you knew that already...
Ever the Pan Africanist, I call for African Unity... yes.. that beast which just seems so hard to tame. Fluid, like dry sand between the fingers
Who ( or what) is to blame for this mess?
When things go well.. they can go very well.
When things go badly, they can go very badly
