The Address | Benghazi – Libya

ROME – Four NGOs involved in the rescue of migrants experiencing difficulty at sea have issued a statement calling for Italy to stop blocking their ships.

The NGOs Doctors Without Borders (MSF), Sea-Watch, Open Arms, and Mediterranea have urged the Italian government to stop blocking their rescue ships in the Mediterranean ahead of the National Day in Remembrance of the Victims of Immigration on October 3.

In a joint statement, they called on the Italian government to stop blocking humanitarian ships and to reactivate an EU-wide mechanism to protect life at sea along the central Mediterranean migration route.
