Suicide Immigrants

Over the past few months, hundreds of young Egyptian men drowned in the Mediterranean while trying to illegally immigrate to Europe.

Because these men were from poor and marginalized sections of the society, nobody is giving a shit about this tragedy except their families and friends.

The most disgusting thing is that the government is trying to portray them as greedy and stupid people who have been fooled by human traffickers.

These dead men were young and unemployed with no hope of achieving anything in their country. Had they remained in Egypt it would have been slow death anyway, so why not risk their lives on these suicidal boat trips across the Mediterranean if they stand a chance to succeed?

If it wasn't for our governments disgraceful mismanagement of the economy and total failure to tackle corruption these young men would have been alive today. Lots of people have blood on their hands and it's not just the human trafficking gangs.
