The Civil Fleet Podcast

May 15, 2021

IN TODAY'S episode, we speak with Alarm Phone activist Deanna. She talks to us about the refugee shipwreck in the Mediterranean last month that took the lives of 130 people.

Though the disaster may look like a catastrophic dereliction of duty, Deanna tells us that the authorities behaved exactly how the European border regime wants them to.

Deanna tells us why the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centres in Italy, Malta and Libya should be replaced by civil-society organisations, and in fact how they already have been.

And we also speak about why Alarm Phone advocates for the removal of all borders and for the abolition of itself.
