The Civil Fleet Podcast

Mar 28, 2021

In today's episode we speak with Sascha, a former head of operations on the Iuventa refugee rescue ship that saved around 14,000 lives between August 2016 and 2017.

Sascha tells us what it was like working on the ship and how Italy's far right movement got the intelligence services to spy on their activities and how the cops seized the ship.
