Mare clostrum, The Sea Watch vs Libyan Coast Guard Case

Mare Clausum: The Sea Watch vs Libyan Coast Guard Case from Forensic Architecture.

On 6 November 2017, the rescue NGO Sea Watch (SW) and a patrol vessel of the Libyan Coast Guard (LYCG) simultaneously directed themselves towards a migrants’ boat in distress in international waters. The boat, which had departed from Tripoli a few hours earlier, carried between 130 and 150 passengers. A confrontational rescue operation ensued, and while SW was eventually able to rescue and bring to safety in Italy 59 passengers, at least 20 people died before or during these events, while 47 passengers were ultimately pulled back to Libya, where several faced grave human rights violations – including being detained, beaten, and sold to an other captor who tortured them to extract ransom from their families. The unfolding of this incident has been reconstructed in a video by Forensic Oceanography in collaboration with Forensic Architecture. Read more on Forensic Architecture website

Having ordered #Aquarius to disembark rescued #migrants in #Libya, and having received a no for an answer, the Libyan coordination centre explicitly REFUSED to continue coordinating the rescue.

Stark example of the paradoxical effects of the existence of a Libyan SAR zone.

La Libye n'étant pas à l'heure actuelle reconnue "lieu sûr" (place of safety), l'Aquarius a répondu qu'il ne pouvait pas légalement transborder des personnes qui y seraient renvoyées

#IMRCC Rome denied responsibility after being informed by #Colibri operators and referred the crew to the headquarters of the so-called #LibyanCoastGuard. There, Colibri’s distress call wasn’t received for hours despite multiple attempts.

⭕️ UPDATE: The rubberboat, spotted yesterday by @PVolontaires #Colibri, was eventually, after >9 hours at sea, intercepted and forcibly returned to #Libya. Once again #Italy & #EU have condoned the deaths of over 80 people and finally abandoned them to inhumane detention.

Un groupe de migrants, principalement des Éthiopiens et des Érythréens, a forcé les portes d’un centre... Paris d'Exil - Collectif parisien de soutien aux exilé.e.s (Facebook)

16 Sep 2018, 2:36 pm
Un groupe de migrants, principalement des Éthiopiens et des Érythréens, a forcé les portes d’un centre de rétention où il était enfermé, puis a marché vers la capitale Tripoli, à une vingtaine de kilomètres au nord, pour demander l’aide de l’ONU et des ONG de défense des droits de l’Homme. Ballottés de camps de torture en centre de rétention depuis leur arrivée en Libye en 2015, ces migrants veulent aujourd’hui quitter la Libye le plus tôt possible.
