Bleak Venture: European Union Dashes African Migrants’ Hope

first_imgFor over 500 years, Africa has been the epicenter of some of humanity’s worst moments in history.  War, poverty, slavery, disease and environmental destruction dominate the public perception of the continent in which humanity began. Over and over again, research has proven that the African continent is the birthplace of civilization, language, art, music and the place all of human ancestors began their great journey to every nook and corner of the globe. A Chilean-born American naturalist, poet and popular writer depicted in a recent report about his first visit to Africa:  Ask a child anywhere in the world to name kinds of animals, and it’s no surprise to hear the names of the great beasts that dwell in the Savannah’s and deep, dark jungles.  African animals are symbols of nature itself and for adults that mystery and awe are not lost to time and adulthood.  Yet, the reality of life in Africa for Africans is often drastically contrasted.  Africa and her inhabitants have been plagued by thousands of years of struggle.  From the Romans, to the Persians, to the French, English, Spanish, and Americans, the world has come to Africa to drink her rivers, log her forests, mine her minerals and exploit her people.  Let alone the Chinese who are on massive exploitative ventures.The desire of many Africans to migrate to Europe in the midst of war, poverty, disease and human suffering has been trapped as the European Union tightens its borders alongside the Mediterranean Sea. Europe that professes to be a continent devoted to the tenets of human rights, democracy and deeply rooted culture of Christianity as well as a citadel of free movement has turned a blind eye on thousands of African migrants mostly young people crammed into rickety smugglers’ ships to drown right in front of its doorstep without any assistance.This contentious immigration crisis has led to the death of over 3,000 migrants in this year alone and experts are predicting an expected rise.  According to a new report from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Europe is being labeled the most dangerous destination for “irregular” migration in the world.   Another shocking statistics from the IOM in its compilation of data since 2000 indicated that an average of eight “irregular” migrants die each day.  All the more so, last year October an estimated 500 African migrants died in a shaky boat tragedy off the Italian island of Lampedusa while attempting to enter Europe.  In spite of all the efforts instituted by an unsustainable Italian search-and-rescue initiative after the Lampedusa calamity, the Italian authorities have proclaimed that more than 2,500 African migrants are known to have drowned or gone missing in the Mediterranean since the beginning of this year. Even as the death toll of desperate African migrants rises in the Mediterranean,  coupled with uprising in some North African countries and ferocious human rights abuses,  the European Union has put into effect a limited joint border patrol codenamed “Operation Triton.”  This operation, managed by the European Frontex border agency that replaces the Italian Mare Nostrum operation which rescued on average 400 migrants a day with an aggregate of 150,000 since the boat tragedy off the Italian island of Lampedusa, has absolutely no search and rescue operations across the Mediterranean and limited resources within 30 miles patrols of the Italian coast.As the European Union builds the walls of fortress higher and higher with tougher regulations, it seems that the immigration crisis is becoming a stalemate with gross violation of certain provisions of the Geneva Convention that give asylum entitlement to those fleeing persecution, including religious, racial, national and political identity or beliefs.  Moreover, as one of the cradles for the promotion of fundamental human rights,  most especially the right to life, the European Union should not and must not implement bizarre and harsh regulations to the detriment of  already poverty-stricken migrants fleeing from some of the worst atrocities ever known to human history and in search of greener pastures  and a better way of life as measured by the colonial masters. The European Union must come to the realization that African migrants are not risking their lives and making the deadliest and most dangerous sea crossing for nothing.  As the old African adage goes, “The snake cannot run out of its hole for nothing”.  Consequently, the European Union must understand that it is part of the problem and not just an ordinary bystander with protective gears shelling it face with censorious comportment towards African migrants.Furthermore, the European Union must in the truest sense accept the fact that countless number of African slaves through their sweat, blood and tears labored very hard without any compensation and some even died in the process to build Europe’s wealthiest nations with almost all of the raw materials taken for little or nothing from the African continent.  The European Union needs to know that its vast wealth derived from Africa, especially during the colonial period, where they governed, enslaved and enriched themselves at the expense of the continent’s forefathers and indoctrinated many Africans to believe in their way of life.  In addition, the European Union must recognize irregular African migrants crossing the Mediterranean Sea in overloaded boats to a safe haven in Europe deserve the right to live just like anyone else.Howbeit, no one expects Europe to carry all of Africa’s burdens because of its deeply rooted history on the continent.  Nowadays, what is expected isn’t just aid to destitute Africans without traceable impact or chronicled  and voluminous reports about the continent’s lapses, pitfalls and challenges, but a more holistic and realistic picture.  The European Union has got to comprehend that Africa merits  a mutual relationship, fair trade, and exchange of ideas,  especially in the areas of science, technology, engineering and other educational related initiatives.In this 21st Century, when the world is like a click of a mouse, the European Union ought to stop humiliating irregular African migrants and provide best alternatives to resolving many longstanding conflicts as well as societal vices.  Together, Europe and Africa can find a common front in addressing migration across the Mediterranean. It is about time that the European Union realizes that one day Africans will be able to hold their heads high as they combat the wrongdoings of the past through their own imagination, creativity, and culture.  The best days in Africa’s history are in her future and every African must begin to look inward to realize their own potential and believe that they have the power to change the future of Africa to be one ripe with opportunities.About the author:  Mr.  Stephen B.

Football job at Ike open

first_img Julius McChristian has been the coach for the past three seasons. He has compiled a 12-19 record during that time. Johnson said McChristian will be welcome to apply for the job. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita Contacted in midday, McChristian was asked if he was going to be replaced as coach. “Those are just rumors,” he said. “Nothing is set in stone. But I can’t say a lot about it.” Ike principal Reginald Thompkins was unavailable for comment. This could make Rialto High School – formerly a coaching carousel – as the most stable football position in the Rialto Unified School District. Brad Hornback is scheduled to begin his second season as the Rialto coach next fall. Another vacant football job in the district is at Carter. Mike Churchill began last season as the Lions coach, resigned one game into the league season after a much-publicized brouhaha with fans and ultimately was replaced by Brian Kidd. RIALTO – The Eisenhower High School football job is up for grabs. “The position is opening,” Ike athletic director Steve Johnson said late Tuesday afternoon. “I can’t get really get into it because it’s a personnel issue.” center_img Kidd confirmed last month that the Carter job was going to open. He has since applied for the job, which officially closed on Tuesday. Eisenhower was a national powerhouse a little more than a decade ago. In 1993, under coach Tom Hoak (now an assistant principal), the Eagles went 14-0, won the CIF-Southern Section large-school title and were ranked second in the nation to Cleveland St. Ignatius. McChristian was a key player on that ’93 Ike team. Ike has not won a Citrus Belt League football title since 2002 but has managed to win seven of the last 17 league champion. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Blaze spread from vehicle in garage

first_img• Photo Gallery: 06/06: Fire in Whittier WEST WHITTIER – Two men were seriously injured Tuesday after a fire erupted in the garage of a home, then spread to the house, causing more than $200,000 in damage, officials said. The fire at the home in the 12000 block of Reichling Lane broke out about 11:45a.m. It appeared to have started accidentally, when a severed fuel line in a vehicle parked in the garage caught fire, officials said. “This dog is my dad’s life,” she said. Gonzalez said she heard an explosion just before the fire. She said her father and her husband had been working on the engine of a classic truck inside the garage moments before she heard an explosion. Although the fire could have been accidentally started, Larriva said that officials were continuing to investigate the cause. sandy.mazza@sgvn.com (562)698-0955, Ext.3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Is this Man City’s XI for opening day with Silva, Ederson and more new signings?

first_img 11 Left wing: Douglas Costa – Brazil winger Costa endured a tough season under Carlo Ancelotti at Bayern Munich, and is reportedly set to leave Germany this summer. talkSPORT told you at the beginning of June that City are interested in him, with Guardiola keen to reunite with a player he worked with at the Allianz Arena. Bayern will sell Costa if someone matches their £35m asking price, and he would add another arrow to City’s array of attacking talent. Should Costa move to the Etihad, he is likely to start ahead of Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling – at least at the beginning of the season. Right wing: Bernardo Silva – Silva has already arrived at the Etihad from Monaco, on the back of a superb season with the Ligue 1 club. He established himself as one of Europe’s best attackers, and is likely to fit straight into City’s starting XI on the right wing. He played on the right in a four-man midfield for ASM, and showed his dribbling ability and desire to cut in on to his left foot and shoot for goal. Silva is also a perfect fit for Guardiola’s fluid attacking system as he can play anywhere across the front line, changing places with the left winger and striker to confuse the opposition. 11 11 Left back: Benjamin Mendy – City have been linked with Monaco star Mendy for a number of months now, and have actively been in talks with the Ligue 1 club regarding the France left back. Recent reports claim ASM will demand £40m for Mendy’s services, a price that does not seem too high considering the quality the 22-year-old has shown at the Stade Louis II. Premier League rivals Chelsea and Liverpool are also known to be keen on Mendy, but City are leading the race. 11 Right back: Dani Alves – Heavily linked with City over the weekend, Alves looks set to agree a £5m move to the Etihad to link up with Guardiola, who coached him at Barcelona. It was under Guardiola when Alves developed into a world class full-back, and though he had a hit-and-miss season with Juventus, his excellent performances in big matches make the 34-year-old a wise signing. He will also provide a wealth of experience to a continuously questionable City defence. Centre back: John Stones – It was a hit-and-miss season for Stones at the Etihad following his big-money move from Everton last summer, as he alternated between top class performances and shocking showings on an almost weekly basis. Playing as a defender in Guardiola’s intense system was always going to prove tricky, and there are hopes Stones will be better this coming campaign having had a year to develop under the Catalan coach. He is sure to start the season in the heart of City’s defence, but will need to prove himself if he wants to remain a starter. 11 11 Centre back: Vincent Kompany – Kompany returned from injury at the end of last season and actually managed to play a run of games without picking up a different injury. He immediately established himself back at the heart of City’s defence, and Guardiola is unlikely to leave him out on the first day of the season if he is fit. City’s defence looks so much more solid with Kompany included, and their hopes for success rest heavily on whether he will be able to play a full season of football next term. 11 11 Centre midfield: Kevin De Bruyne – When on form, De Bruyne is arguably City’s best player and fans will be hoping he can show his talent across a whole season. He started last term exceptionally well, but fell by the wayside throughout the campaign. With the amount of wingers at City, De Bruyne is likely to feature in a deeper role, where he can run with the ball and display his superb playmaking skills. He featured in such a position at times last year and seemed perfectly suited to the role. Centre forward: Gabriel Jesus – Jesus looked a true star when he linked up with City in January, ending the 2016/17 season with seven goals and four assists in 10 Premier League matches. He suffered an injury on international duty in June, but is expected to be fighting fit for the start of the 2017/18 campaign. Though it no longer appears Sergio Aguero will leave the Etihad this summer, as originally expected, it is hard to look past Jesus starting the season as Guardiola’s first choice forward. 11 11 Goalkeeper: Ederson – Already signed from Benfica, Ederson will start the season as Manchester City’s first choice goalkeeper. Regarded one of Europe’s best, the 23-year-old should prove a major step up from Claudio Bravo, who is likely to remain at the Etihad as backup. Click the right arrow to see the rest of the predicted Manchester City line up… Centre midfield: Ilkay Gundogan – Gundogan arrived at the Etihad last summer carrying an injury, and he ended the season with another injury – having played just 16 games in-between. Doubts remain about his overall fitness considering how close together his two long-term injuries occurred, though there are hopes he will be able to play the full 2017/18 season when recovered. Reports indicate Gundogan will be fit for pre-season and, bar any setbacks in his recovery, he should start the season as a key midfield player. Centre midfield: David Silva – The man who makes City tick, Silva has to remain a key player next season. He has the perfect skillset for a team coached by Guardiola, and in a central midfield role the Spain international dominates the game. Though often on the periphery, almost every City attack goes through Silva, and it is easy to understand why Guardiola is not looking to upgrade the midfield positions this summer when he can call upon the likes of Silva. Manchester City have been one of the busiest teams in the transfer market so far, already bringing in two players.Goalkeeper Ederson has arrived from Benfica as a replacement for the ailing Claudio Bravo, while Bernardo Silva has been signed from Monaco after a superb season.Despite those two deals, City’s business is far from complete.Pep Guardiola has plans to bring in a number of new players as he looks to turn the club into serious Premier League and Champions League challengers.So, just how could City line up on the first day of the domestic season?talkSPORT takes a look at the biggest Manchester City transfer rumours, building a predicted starting XI for their opening day clash against newly-promoted Brighton at the Amex.You can see the team by clicking the right arrow, above… 11last_img read more
