Refugee crisis expressed. Opinion

THESE are not my words but of Helga Zell-LaRouche, founder of the Schiller Institute that in 1984 released the Declaration of the Inalienable Rights of Man.

To me the words sum up the refugee crisis. “The heart-wrenching refugee crisis which is currently playing out in Europe and which has resulted from a series of wars based on lies in South West Asia and North Africa should be a warning shot across the bow for the whole world that the entire system of the international community of peoples is collapsing.

“Every single one of the tens of thousands of people who have already drowned in the Mediterranean, every single one of the hundreds of thousands currently on the run only to be potentially exposed to violence by right-wing terrorists and every single one of the millions who have been uprooted and are not refugees, represents a thundering indictment of those responsible for these war crimes and crimes against humanity.”
