Day 28: Closing borders? Migration? Survival?... GLOBAL SOLUTIONS PLEASE!

The migration crisis between European and North African countries is escalating. The recent uprising of its tone opens up a reality that we simply cannot ignore: the interdependence we all exist within. 

Yesterday, the Euronews reported that “hundreds of immigrants from north Africa reached Italian shores in the last 24 hours, adding to a crisis that has raised tension between European governments and prompted plans to temporarily restore border controls.” At the same time, Denmark decided to re-impose its border restrictions.

This last aspect refers to a change in the free movement of people, known as the Schengen cooperation, that has been developed since 1985 and which evolved into an established legislative practice with the Amsterdam Treaty in 1999. Today, over 400 million people live in the Schengen area and it covers 22 EU Member States* plus Iceland, Norway and Switzerland. In practice, the current Schengen Agreement enables anyone to cross the internal borders without undergoing checks.

The interdependence can be seen here as Equality – what it happens in one side of the world will affect the other side equally. There is no escape. By this, it is understood that we are ALL equally responsible.

As in every situation, one has put oneself into our neighbours’ shoes, both the European citizens and the African migrants, in order to see in common sense. A solution that is the best for all is now being proved to be the ONLY way to guarantee that past mistakes won’t happen again. I will develop about the solution further in this article.

The European Union is land, with population and set of legislation. The North African countries are the same: land, with population and laws. Let’s read in between the lines and see that these elements are all limited – not only by borders, but mainly by the economic system that “sponsors” POVERTY worldwide.

What we are assisting at the moment is an incredible wave moved by human SURVIVAL. People wouldn’t move from their country of origin to Europe except to improve their lives! When people are suffering, feeling insecure, hungry and without support whatsoever, people will search for a better place and for money. People migrate because the place where they live does not provide them the security, food and quality of life which are basic human rights for a dignified LIFE! WHY? Because we are condemned to the survival economic system that we have been accepting thus far.

If people had enough money for themselves, do you think they would migrate? Probably not! They would possibly move to another country for professional/personal growth and self-enjoyment, but certainly not from a survival starting point. It is not time to point the finger at anyone: instead lets use both of our hands to work together towards a different economic system, based on equal rights and dignity. These will be achieved by establishing an Equal Money System, where everyone has money for the basic human needs from birth till death.

Ask yourself: what would you do if you were in a situation of extreme poverty, unemployment and war?


According to the Press Release from the 3085th Council meeting on 12 May 2011, Brussels: 

The solution presented by the Council of the European Union is a “More efficient migration management” based on “a need for a strong common immigration and asylum policy and efficient controls at the external borders.”

This is NO SOLUTION AT ALL. Please Mrs and Mr Ministers, this is a remedy that doesn't cure. In fact, it ignores the real problem here, which is the NEED FOR MIGRATION in first place! Until when do we need to watch the same images of people falling from boats again and again? Until when are we going to accept such survivalism in the world?

As the Belgian migration minister said "What is the answer in bringing back borders? What will it produce? Nothing,". "Too bad it is being brought forward by several nations."

With so many European theorists, deputies and policy makers, why don’t they/WE spend our time, money and knowledge in developing/investigating a global change in the economic system once and for all?? If knowledge became a limitation, then let go of the knowledge and think creatively towards solutions that have the best outcome for everyone affected by it. People don’t need to migrate or ask for asylum IF conditions are provided since they are born.

The Equal Money System is being developed by a group of international practivists to make sure that people’s lives are respected everywhere. The change required has to be global.

The current economic system is a carrousel and the Humanity is going through time loops... until we all free ourselves from it.
