#Wikimedia - Robin Reineke - #migrants die

Robin Reineke is a founder and the executive director of the Colibrí Center for Human Rights. They work with the Pima County Medical Examiner to identify migrant lives lost. By documenting the lives lost, they make the point that people matter.

Never mind what border, people on opposite sites of the fence or sea think less of the people on the opposite side. In the USA they die in a desert, in Europe they die at sea. When they are in the Netherlands, it is "OK" for them to drift on the streets.

People matter and Robin received the Letelier-Moffitt Human Rights Award on behalf of the foundation she founded. Under normal circumstances, the people of the age that dare to migrate are the power houses of an economy. When they, like the corrupt money are leaving a country its economy is not doing as well as it should.

Accepting money and not people is an indication of double standards. It has everything to do with the corrupt people being of a similar class.

I received this picture from Robin to upload to Commons. At this time it does not work for me.. Sad.
