    Far-Right group sends ship to Mediterranean to confront 'criminal' rescue vessels and block migrants

    An extreme Right-wing organisation is sending a boat to the Mediterranean to try to stop the exodus of migrants from North Africa to Europe and confront what it calls the “criminal NGOs” who rescue them.

    Defend Europe intends to launch a vigilante-style mission off the coast of Libya, blocking migrants and taking on the dozen or so humanitarian organisations who pluck desperate asylum seekers from sinking boats and dinghies.

    More than 85,000 migrants, most of them sub-Saharan Africans, have been rescued and brought to Italy this year, with fears that the total could reach 200,000 by December. More than 2,000 have died during the crossing.

    The far-Right and anti-Muslim group is made up of young people from France, Germany, Italy and Austria and has been described as the European equivalent of America’s alt-right movement.

    For two months, using marinetraffic.com, we have monitored movements of ships owned by NGOs, and we have kept track of the arrivals of African immigrants.

    They are letting all these people in but they won't give India high skilled temporary movement of people. What a joke.

    We need Mode 4 access through the WTO or the FTA.

    Basically, if a country wants access to another country's market for its companies through WTO, then that country must allow movement of labour between the two countries.

    In simpler terms--

    And there would be quantity limits to immigration. It's unreasonable to expect a small island to fling the doors open to 1.4bn people.

    Mode 4 is not a substitute for population control.

    Mode 4 is not for employment. It's for already employed labour to move around freely without visas.

    The idea is to create conditions that allow a person to move across borders and then return. This will allow a service to be rendered by a person in one country and the earnings are transferred to the home country as remittances. This prevents brain drain and also achieves 100% benefits to the country providing the service. So the person becomes a commodity shared by two countries.

    For example, consultants who work with a company for a year or two. Right now, it's very difficult to move them across borders. But with Mode 4, any consultant can work anywhere in the world as long as he's contracted by a company for the work. So he can work for Barclay for a year, then move to New York for a stint with Citibank for 3 years, then to Brazil and so on.

    Basically, the individual is an expat, not an immigrant. On Mode 4 visa you can't become an immigrant.

    I don't see someone moving from India to the UK and back inside a working day. A consultant wouldn't need to move, consultancy work can be done on computer and the results sent via e-mail.

    Besides this, there already exists such movement for people who meet the £35k/year income criteria. That's why the average earnings of Indian immigrants is £17.69/hour. Any lower than that and we don't class it as skilled.;)
