What I love about business leadership is what I love about Andre Leadership and that is that we believe that great success can come from humble beginnings. You guys know this. You know in our country, it doesn't matter what your skin color is. It doesn't matter if you're male or female. All. It takes passion drive and a desire to make a difference. You may say why don't have enough money to get started? I don't have enough education I. Don't know the right people guys. I'm telling you those are all just excuses. From the Ramsey network this is the entreleadership podcast where we help business leaders, themselves, their teams and their prophets. I'm your host Daniels Hardy and my guest today is Accordia Harrington she's the founder and CEO of the Bakery Coast today they've got multiple plants and customers around the world including. McDonald's Oh Charlie's pretty big deal. But. It didn't start out that way and like a lot of great success stories that start with really humble beginnings accordions is really not that much different. And all began for her and a small town in Arkansas. I started my first business in Russellville. Arkansas. Do you know where that is i? Know Arkansas. Russell. Okay. Well. Down a beautiful town on a lake about halfway between Little Rock and Fort Smith and my first business was a real estate company concept one realtors and foretelling we use tweet emblem on a real estate vine. Yeah. Little. Did I know? And that began. With the good fortune of having bartered for office space from a doctor that had a big empty building and least my chairs and my desk three dollars a month for the deaths and a dollar fifty a month for the chairs and I was in the real estate business us all five hundred, eighty, seven dollars to buy plywood signs to put in front yards and it grew and it was so much fun. The ladies that I hired. We were the first off you mill business in Arkansas, and the men bankers would literally come by to see what we're doing. And we would stage houses. That's before we knew what staging was and we would try to rearrange the furniture in houses so that they showed the best and it took off so you're showcasing the houses to make them look great. That's very common these days. What was it uncommon? Totally people thought we were so weird to come into their house and stake some pictures down in rearrange the furniture Abed we were trying to give them the best opportunity to get their house sold. You know back then houses there eighteen hundred square foot house two car garage on an acre of land with a lakeview guess how much it was I can't even guess forty thousand, you're really cloak. Thousand. and. So you know and there were lots of properties available and not very many buyers. So it was it was an interesting business in the only reason. I. Got Out of it. I. Loved it. I loved working with the families helping a find a home bettering their life but the people that moved to town the For your family bought the local McDonalds. Daniel. But when I grew up, I didn't know you could own a McDonald's and when I found out, they owned it. I was like all. That is cool. They lived on a Beautiful Lake House they drove a Mercedes than they had every weekend with their family. So for me I thought Gosh this would be so great. They didn't like living in Russellville they wanted to move I love Libyan Russellville K- I can imagine a real estate you weren't necessarily your weekends with wasn't a thing and you're just grinding all the time. So was it was the opportunity for flexibility? What was what like when you kind of had the dream I mean Mercedes is nice but was like drawing you to them exactly. Well, unfortunately, I went through a divorce and my children were one three and five when I did that in having a job that I could be off on the nights and weekends was very motivating. I was driven to spend more time with my kids and yeah I, mean the perks looked nice to but are really wanted quality time with my. Kids an and in as much as I love real estate, it was just impossible. So many business owners I talk to really the family is the reason that they get into owning their own business. You know maybe they work at a corporation at its ninety hours a week than ever see their family, even the money can be nice but I mean, you look up and your kids are. Little and they start growing and you go I'm missing out on their lives. Curious to hear from you how you continue to keep that value as the business grows and scales because there's a little bit of the grass is greener on the other side. If I have my own business, I'll have the flexibility and the autonomy, and it can also be that same dragon that takes you away. From your family if you're not careful yet you're totally right and I haven't the greatest respect for restaurant owners because when I did buy my first McDonald's we were unable to stay in. Russellville that just wasn't the way McDonalds did things and that was offered the chance to buy the EFFINGHAM. Illinois McDonald's where that is I know effingham driven through there once okay. Most people have driven by. Again, a big town of ten thousand people and we had an interstate McDonald's that I purchased. At the time I paid a very high price for it.

And the only way to do it was to drive more sales as you know, that's the way it. But if you'RE GONNA ten thousand, how do you find more people? Yeah.

Going old Turkey: a regional power spreads

"A decade ago, Turkey's Foreign Minister Audit of Attalou used to boast his country was on good terms with everyone police fantasia want. less confrontation, less tense attitude. Especially, in the region, he spoke at the Council on foreign, relations with the will of the principal. In. Two thousand three. Zero problems with our neighbors. And the made a huge progress. All, that now seems a distant memory Turkey is growing its international influence and not always with a light touch. The country has been backing Libya's government in its civil war. Last month. The Turkish Defence Minister landed in Libya to inspect his troops and opposition warlord warned them to get out or else. Turkey prompted an angry statement from Egypt last week by allegedly planning gas exploration and Egyptian waters. And yesterday Turkish officials railed against an American company for its dealings with ethnic Kurds in neighboring Syria. That Turkey believes to be terrorists. To some, all this adventurism is reminiscent of past chapter of the country's history when the Ottoman Empire ruled all of Syria and far beyond. Turkey, has been playing an especially prominent role in Syria since protests spread into a full blown civil war. Turkey has really become a meshed in Syria since the start of the our spring, the uprisings that took place in two thousand eleven across the Middle East it back. The Islamist. Movements that initially took to the streets and then took up arms. Nicholas Pelham is our Middle East correspondent. But as those fighters were false back towards its border, it's really stepped into try and protect its southern border, stop any more refugees coming into the country and to provide some sort of safe zone for the proteges, and it's also very nervous about the current state law that emotion the northeast of the country. It feels very threatened by the emergence of Kurdish power on the southern borders, and is it reasonable for Turkey to think that those Kurdish forces are really a threat historic? The have been links between the PK, the cuts down Workers Party, which has been waging a thirty five year a war for. Autonomy and separatism inside Turkey. Many of those fighters did flee sought refuge in Iraq and in Syria, and so Turkey is worried about what it sees very much kind of PKK influenced state emerging on its southern borders. So this year it's been launching pretty heavy attacks inside Iraq, it's been sending tanks across the border. It's established positions inside northern Iraq. It's been carrying out drone bombardments, such two hundred kilometers from its border in Saint, John More, Kurds all the way along its southern border inside Syria inside. Iraq see a new Turkish assault, which is pushing deep into their territory and not just unsettling. Kurdish aspirations for sovereignty in Iraq and Syria, and this is also unnerving Arab leaders as well. Who Turkey pushing deep into territory, which was part of the Turkish Republic predecessor. The Ottoman Empire, which ruled the Middle East centuries until its dissolution about a century ago, which is to say that Turkey is expanding its influence is doing this adventurism beyond Iraq and Syria all over the Middle East of the moment. There's a this year has seen the new intervention of the Turkish, Army. Libya. They came to the rescue of the besieged government of National Accord. In Tripoli, which has been fighting a civil war against a renegade general. Khalifa. After Turkish forces established at base on the borders of Tunisia, we're seeing it's frigates make a bid for control of looking coastline and even ward off French frigates. We're really seeing a substantive increase in Turkish. Power across the Middle East and it's not just happening in Liberia. It's happening in Gaza, which is an ally of Turkey. Turkish forces there have tried to help. Cut Break Its blockade by Saudi Arabia they're. A. Few hundred to a few thousand Turkish forces that are they're wasting more Turkish interested in Yemen civil war. We're seeing interest in a Sudanese port and actually Turkey's largest overseas basis in the point of Africa. So really this is a massive increase in Turkey spread across the middle, East and do you believe that the the the Ottoman history plays into that as a return to former glories? In some way? It's very much the in the rhetoric certainly saw Mr. Osman tropes at the at the height of the Arab spring wanted to appear to be the leader of the Muslim world. He was promoting his version of governance across the region hoping to clone the Turkish model across the Middle East. But since the collapse of Islamist movement since its as from power in Egypt and the retreat of many of its forces, he's really kind of played much more on Turkey's national interests. He's ally domestically with what had been his nationals opposition. He seems to be much more concerned on trying to maximize Turkey's economic claims in the. The Mediterranean this since much more about promoting Turkey's national interests than flying it systems colors. This is really an exercise in in hard power and trying to exploit the weakness of others, the retreat of Europe and America from the Middle East. The policies of many Arab governments, and try and push Turkey to fill what seems to be a vacuum of power across the Middle East, and so is that push to serve Turkey's national interests working is, is it benefiting from this from this expansionism? If you're trying to put together a balance sheet of profit balance sheet? Sheet Turkey has benefited from Khatri investment cutters, loans, and investments have helped prop up the Turkish lira. It may be that country's also hoping to fund part of its military costs in Libya Turkeys, keen to promote its companies when it comes to eventual reconstruction of war-torn Libya, which after all is energy rich state, and so long term, there may be benefits, his critics home highlight, the cost it's estimated that Turkish operations in Syria have cost anything up to about thirty billion dollars, and of course, there is a threat that you're going to see a major escalation.

"We are going to discuss the situation in Libya so a few weeks ago, we had written about the one thousand Russian mercenaries that had arrived in country there, and the presence. Presence of unmarked MiG fighters, so I wanted to have Tony. Maybe you can set the stage for us. It's a very complicated battlespace that is emerging there with alliances that are very fluid, and what is really become a showcase or a testbed for a war of the future. So why don't you set up the security situation for us? And then we'll dig in and and talk about how the aircraft there are being used. Vive semis up. Pretty Fatty. That Jen. This harks back to the Arab spring, and the and the impact of that event across the Middle East and North Africa and also the fall of Colonel Gadhafi, and since then we've had this. On and off civil war, but now sort of developed into essentially two major sides who got the Libyan national? Army controlled by lethal halftime who made significant gains from his base in Benghazi sweeping across the country, and then we have the government of National Accord, which is a U N backed government which which? Controls Tripoli for a long time. Half ta basic swept across, took control of most of the oilfields on a much control of Libya, but then in recent months we've seen a resurgence of the genie's power, mainly, because it's backed by Turkish took a lot of effort into this campaign, and they've been fighting back, and we've seen sort of the GNA taking control of fields and towns across the area so particularly in the western half of the country the Libyan National Army Khalifa's army. has the backing of countries like the United. I M, Ritz Egypt and of course strain Russia, so it was sort of seeing this strange war. Complicated woman different sides. Some countries are undecided about which side to take. Which side is going to win. It's caught up in cobweb of mercenary groups and. Now introducing high levels of technology we're seeing. UAV's being used these Russian aircraft advance, Ground Base, defense systems, and also mercenary troops, being used in different ways and being bought in from different parts of of the Middle East to come and fight there. It's just it's become a little bit like Syria, but not quite the haphazard situation that has developed the. Brandon. Where is the US in this equation? A good question. It's The the best answer right now is that it's complicated. ostensibly the US does support the GNA because that is the internationally recognized UN backed. Government but It's important to remember that general huff. Tar is a creature of the United States in a sense He did spend eighteen years here in northern Virginia It said that he was working with the federal government for most of that time, if not all of that time and improving their understanding of events in North Africa during the latter years of the Gadhafi regime. So you know there have been a formal discussions between president. President, trump and half tar. They've actually spoken to one another there has there has been some limited at least diplomatic cooperation, but the US has stopped short of endorsing the as legitimate governments over the DNA so one more way Tony kind of had alluded to it a to it already one more way in which this is at all levels diplomatic, military, strategic, a very very fluid, dynamic, strange, complicated situation. That's unfolding there in Libya. Let's talk a little bit about the MiGs. We started to see satellite imagery of Russian aircraft landing on an airbase Dan. Can you bring us up to speed and give some detail about how they arrived in what happened to them after they came in? Yeah, so this is a the great. The great mystery of the conflict right now so in mid May satellite imagery showed that a MiG twenty nine had appeared at L. Giuffra. Airbase in central Libya and anyone that has access to the Internet can quickly find out. That Libya doesn't have MiG twenty nine fulcrum. So, where did this come from remarkably? Remarkably there had been some which essentially called rent a rumor intelligence, and the previous day's out MiG twenty nine, transiting from Russia to Syria, and then they just of stopped, and then a couple of days later. Oh, there it is! There's the MiG twenty nine in Libya and so people have been trying to piece I back, you know. Where did these come from? Who supplied them? And eventually on Africans in the US confirmed that they were rushing that they came from Russia, they flew through Iran and Syria and onwards syllabi. They went it. Was You know they say fourteen MiG twenty nine s you twenty fours. The mixture that is up for debate. There's been at least six twenty nine seen in Syria at the same time there was allegedly transiting. Their markings are painted over so these. Are you know I'm I'm going to be the first one to steal fray. Sorry guys the. Little Green jets. I got there first. So these. Are you know? Plausible deniability, whose are they really you know the most likely operated by Russians some people say that they're Belarusian. But they're almost certainly not. Unless secret training program kicks a long time to train foale. Gen fighter. These are not pilots in there. Almost certainly not Arab pilots in general. They were meant to tip the balance, but we haven't really seen them in action much so far. So what have you seen with them? Since and I understand, there are also some issue twenty fours in the region. Yeah so Brennan and I were talking about this. There's only been one confirmed action. They were used they hit a GNA convoy. Just recently that was transiting. Run the Oil Crescent, but mostly they seem to be kind of flying over top of their their bases, and they're just being held in reserve, almost a most satellite imagery of a Alqadi. That has the twenty fours in shelters. They haven't left. They arrived. They went into the shelters and everytime. Imagery passes over there, so they're not seeing not gone flying mission they just it was like a morale boost, and then they've stopped because I'm assuming losing one of the so soon into the conflict would probably be a PR move than when they arrived.

UN: Libya's warring sides have agreed to restart peace talks

"The UN says Libya's warring factions have agreed to resume ceasefire talks follows days of heavy fighting in and around the capital Tripoli. Well, let's get more on this now with Mary Fitzgerald. Who is a research on Libya? Welcome back to the briefing Mary. Could you explain to listeners where we've got? Because there's been so many attempts to bring around some reconciliation? We have two warring parties here. The renegade leader, a half Dr who's oddly backed by many regional powers up against the forces in Tripoli, but just explain where we're on why there is potentially an opportunity for change. Well I would be very wary about even that ten am. And certainly there's a lot of skepticism on the ground amongst on radio bands about the these latest s statements from the U N various internationals and skepticism. That is warranted. This! Particular war. It's a war over the capital. Tripoli Started in April last year, when how star at launch offensive to capture at AAA from the. UN recognized a government on the very day that UN Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez was to try if impetus to the UN political process, that political process is something. Half Star has tried to undermine at every juncture for several years now, and he didn't capture the capital despite. Promising his Libyan supporters and also external backers that he would be able to seize the capital within days or weeks, and with little bloodshed, and here we are over year later with. Thousands, dead, and hundreds of thousands, said displaced as a result of of this conflict, so this latest burst of up talk about negotiations comes as after has experienced a series of losses in recent months. He's lost control of a number of. Small towns in western Libya, but more importantly Anne. He has lost a key asset airbase in Western, Nubia, from which he he used that to to launch attacks. The capital so after is not just. Facing a failing offensive, he's also really am on the back foot and. Some of his forces have have retreated in recent weeks including a whole host of Russian mercenaries who've been finding him, so that's the background to this. Clearly, after feels his his in a corner, his backers, no doubt the UA at primarily also Egypt Saudi, Arabia and Russia and also clearly are in a bit of a pickle in terms of of the way forward here so this To restart talks aimed at reaching a lasting ceasefire. Talks that have been suspended for for the last three months, that was a an earlier burst at the beginning of the year brokered by Russia and Turkey Turkey being back our backer rather of the. The internationally recognized government that hostile his trying to unseat. They basically. Created a momentum earlier this year that led to those initial and talks, but this is very stop start and the reason there is a lot of skepticism on the ground in Libya is Libyans have seen so many times before promises about, and it goes stations to agree a ceasefire, and they ultimately breakdown, and and we're still in the middle of this grinding stalemated war. War A married Tummy. If people. In Tripoli, the capital is is life kind of taking on in an okay way. We know that they have a battle to deal with corona virus as well which is is very difficult to deal with when you're being besieged on your outskirts. How is the city functioning at this time as the city that you know personally very well? Well, my my last trip was in December and at that point that was a lot of trepidation. amongst residents of AAA that the war could move closer and closer to the center of the city while we've seen happened in recent weeks. Is that there has been an increase in targeting off Just at the weekend, seven people were killed. When there was shelling on a popular picnic spot, right in the center of. The U. N. and international human rights organizations subset most of these civilian debts, most of this indiscriminate shelling. Is attributable to to his forces. There is a belief on the ground in Tripoli that. These attacks are being done as a kind of a revenge or out of frustration, because basically run, and his forces are not getting what they want on top of all of that. Yes, covid nineteen has made an appearance in in in Libya. There have been hundreds of cases as been recently been a spurt of cases in southern Libya, but this of course has made things all the more challenging for for ordinary Libyans what we've seen in some. Positive way in in the last couple of days is the return of some of those thousands of people have been displaced over the last year as a result of the war, some of them are returning to their homes, but there returning also to. Some residential areas where landmines have been planted just today Human Rights Watch issued a report basically accusing after his forces of. Planting landmines across territory that they were in around Tripoli. Particularly residential areas are reapproach. Is it a a an amazing update on this story? We need come back to you more clearly on another show, but Mary thank you for joining, and that was the Libya expert. Mary fits General Gerald and you're listening to the briefing monocle.

"The way matters show. We at nine eastern on MSNBC if you start in in Manhattan, and you go north from Manhattan, the first thing you hit is the Bronx. If you keep going north through the Bronx, the next thing you hit is Westchester county. New York with great towns, you'll hit first on the road like Yonkers and new Rochelle. But if you keep going going north going deeper into sprawling Westchester county, New York, you will eventually get to a place called Bedford. And Bedford New York is pretty I have been there. It's a nice part of the state of New York. It's a nice part of the country. Bedford also has some interesting historic sites. It's got a place called stepping stones this home. This is the preserved home of Bill w if you're in a if you know anybody who's ever been in AA, you know, what Bill w means, including the fact that it's just the last initial Bill Wilson was the founder of alcoholics anonymous and his home is preserved in Bedford New York and is a national historic site. Not far from there is the massive Bedford hills correctional facility, which is actually why I have been to Bedford New York. I used to work on prison reform issues in a previous life. So I have been to that prison. It's the only maximum security women's prison in the New York state correctional system Bedford New York was also briefly the focus of national and even international attention in two thousand nine when. Then Libyan dictator Moammar khadafy made plans to travel to the annual meeting of the UN general assembly. He sent a large advance party to pitch him a tent on the grounds of an estate in Bedford New York, literally they're going to pitch a tent on the lawn of that estate and Qaddafi and his entourage plan to stay in that tent while he was in New York visiting the UN general assembly that was the plan until town officials in Bedford decided they were not into that idea at all they sent somebody from the town over to inspect like the the extension cords and the other little temporary electrical connections. They had set up to service Kadhafi's would be living quarters in that tent on the lawn and the town upon inspecting, those electrical facilities issued a stop work order. So even though the Libyan government rented that place for him, the Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi never actually ended up staying in that. On that lawn at that estate in Bedford New York, but the specific location of that weird three days sort of small scale diplomatic crisis over Moammar Gaddafi in his extension cords the specific location of that. In Bedford New York was a place called seven springs that was that was the estate where it we're Qaddafi plan to stay on the lawn at the time of that Qaddafi controversy. Seven springs was owned ended is still owned today by president Donald J Trump. And that tonight is where we get to the crime part of this story, the maybe crime part, or at least the crime question this property in Bedford New York seven springs as you can see it's big mansion, it's just over two hundred acres. Mr. Trump bought the property in nineteen ninety-five when Trump bought it in one thousand nine hundred five he paid seven point five million dollars for it. And there's good evidence reliable public records evidence that that property that's silver that seven springs property has appreciated nicely over time..

"Do we have to be careful with this Libyan coastguards? Yes. Why book. The Libyan coast God. Is not what one might consider extremely organized border force control, and they may operate in MENA already being incidents between NGOs and even cruise cards have been incidents, and some of them have resulted in in gunfire. When the Libyan coast guard is handling a rescue, they don't have much consideration for the people. They rescue when they put them on their votes. They do not hesitate to be them. They even left migrants to drown. This standoff is a crucial moment. What is about to happen will decide which this migrants land on. If they are rescued by the coast guard, there will end up in Libya if they'll rescued by the Aquarius, there will arrive safely in Europe. So what do the Europeans think of all this in such a standoff, the EU the European Union is on the side of the Libyan coast guard. The EU has helped train them to take charge of more rescue that is how much they do not want migrants to arrive in Europe. This is how Europe is protecting its borders. Mosleh craze, the coordinator for Doctors Without Borders on the Aquarius. And she told me what was happening to migrants when there were brought back to Libya, maybe I, which is a country that's very violent, lawless fractured with a lot of extortion. Maltreatment torture, sexual violence. We can even say slavery and people being taken by people and made to work without pay taken into captivity arbitrarily without knowing when they're going to get out. If you magin coming from that kind of situation, imagine how this you must be to them get into a small rubber boat, which is completely overcrowded and setting sale at night in the dark. Going into that black hole, that's the night, and you spend hours and hours cramped together. And finally daylight comes, and there is the Libyan coast guard boats with living people on board with Libyan flag, and they're going to take you back to that hell you've just escaped. That hell is where all those people on that sinking rubber boat just came from. So what's that? Like I mean for the Aquarius just sit there and watch well on the Aquarius ship is just like, but when are we gonna be allowed to operate the rescue, I mean, time is passing. How long do these people have? It can take hours. I talked to Maxine Machiavelli's is the guy in charge of the rescue his the bus. He's the guy that you would follow to the other side of the earth with the blind. I, you know, you trust him and he told me that people drowning and water filling a boat that is about to sing is more complicated than sounds. Basically people hit die because. Of being crushed by. The boats sink, and as they start to sink, the fuel canisters lodge may be h. e. gallon barrels and they tip. Then you got this environment where the salt will to end the fuel mixing starts. Well, the first effect is it makes you a little high because you breathe in litas in Lisa's hundreds of liters of fuel, you know, off to the first hour, it starts to each and then after a few hours it starts to Bunn and then off to a few more hours, it starts to peel your skin off your legs and your your backside and your arms and whatever pod of using contact with that. So the weight in just mixing with this intoxicating Bunning liquid of hours and hours in hours and hours, and it goes on on on and because also high. At this point, they. Thought to panic very easily. And eventually you find them in the been the and the dead. People between the legs floating around in rescue, people have bite marks on their legs because the fighting for that lives people's like grabbed a body and the skin just like that, and it is horrifying. This is a foam of hell. I think..

"On state television on on national television back on november fifteen th and announced the military takeover which put mugabe under house arrest it and set in motion kind of everything that's been happening so it's very clear you by putting these figures in that this is going to be you know a broader pain of military in some ways these figures as ruling party loyalists and people linked to the military it's not the kind of radical democratic shakeup that that some people had hoped another big story out of africa but one of our listeners emily in cincinnati would like us to talk about emily rights please discussed the cnn video footage of people on the auction block being sold as slaves in libya i'm horrified and confused also grateful for brave reporters and the work they do will emily the video is horrifying i think that's kind of the only reaction a decent person could have reports in videos of refugees and migrants being auctioned off as slaves have prompted a spots from the libyan government i wonder how has libya responded is anything getting done nor have they just kind of been paying this a lot of lip service mark well the libyan government to call it a coherent and functioning government is to give it a lot of credit i mean this is a country that is in chaos and so it's not clear that the libyan government can really do much about this the country's really more a collection of warring fiefs and gangs um i think the other interesting dimension to this is what are the european saying europeans after all were the ones who were being inundated with refugees from across the mediterranean and and owing partly to the efforts of the libyans themselves but also the italian navy they've cut down on these dangerous crossings that migrants are making but in the process they are leaving tens of thousands of people in libya in.

"To block migrants from leave living in july numbers of migrant arrivals to italy dropped to fifty percent of previous years in august two twenty percent the official reason is italy in the eu began funding libyan authorities and its coastguard to clamp down on people traffickers but reports in the italian media say italy see krit service also paid millions in cash to traffickers to block migrants desperate to flee the horrors of libyan detention centers to make it to europe acclaimed the italian government denies a for the nature of such an agreement matia to although is a libya expert with the european council on foreign relations since he says the public will never know if there were secret payments but he says it doesn't make much difference because much of the money italy is funneling into the libyan government in the west still ends up in the hands of traffickers as paychex when we talk about leaving warlords were talking about people who have an official position within the minister of interior the coast guard you serve a fence and people who are at the head of criminal organisations so they might just receive money from the libyan government as salaries which comes from the if i in fact spe we have to ask ourselves what kind of solution disease middle east expert and columnist steffano today lee says is no surprise is the deal with libya comes just months ahead of elections to lately says italians and their leaders knowhow that it is for migrants in libya but they consider keeping them they're worth it if it's like care agreement that tell you made with its own criminality and the mafia 90s to stop various stability that was going on we durbam nearterm swansong not yet while those says by making deals with libyan's to block people there migrants and italy are at risk basically italy has given the keys of the gates the europe two very unpredictable violent actors and includes italy in a very weak position in order to block migrants it will be available for a tougher and tougher deals along the way the.

"Aid to the libyan authorities in that something that's in line with eu policy for example of funding the libyan coast guard for example in the libyan coast god's mission is to intercept these boats at sea before they cross a libyan waters and take them back to libya so this is a very controversial policy uh because uh for for many reasons one of them is that the libyan coast guard has has been known to to have an abusive relationship with people they intercept at sea and also because of the question of whether it is okay to send people back to a place that they are almost literally dying to escape the one of the one of the stories i heard uh from from a syrian refugee he told me that the libyan coast guard approached the boat he was on and they just boarded the simply to rob the people of whatever money they managed to hang onto and he saw two people to other migrants from subsaharan africa uh when they saw the coast guard approaching they jumped off of the boat so they see they they appear to prefer to almost certain death at sea to the prospect of returning to to libya so that policy has come also a under lot of attack but at the same time the italian government is under huge pressure no other eu country has accepted to open its own ports for at least some of these ships and the eu's response has been to try to seal off that route um in in whatever way they can.

"They call it a deterrence strategy they want fewer people to be leaving the reality is people are still leaving and they're drowning at sea because there are not enough search and rescue operations currently going on we've seen pictures of some of these boats being destroyed by some of these are for european countries so what's the kind of ripple effect that these people are now coming on what lester two boats are actually taking to the seas and more and more unseaworthy vessels were talking about people getting on a boat without lifejackets without a satellite phone without enough water or food to last for the journey they're fleeing war violence extreme poverty they're seeking what we would seek if we were in their shoes just trying to rebuild their lives and find safety what are the situation in libya which has become such a launching point for these the situation in libya is disastrous for these people many of them are black africans they face racism they are bought and sold a put into sexual exploitation put into situations where their risk of being kidnapped killed people who are intercepted by the libyan coast guard and sent back to libya are put in detention sites at where their risk of rape and torture an amnesty international for instance talk to one man who said that he had seen three people tortured they were using toilet water as drinking water so these conditions are unspeakably horrific of the european emissions responded in any of the thought about changing the priorities unfortunately what we saw this week from european leaders who met was actually a doubling down on this policy there can continue to try to fund libyan coast guard to conduct interception search and rescue operations but they're not actually doing oversight of libyan coast guard we know that limping coastguard in some cases are actually cooperating with smugglers their corrupt uh they've taken actually gunshots at rescue boats that are operated by nongovernmental organisations so they do not have the best interest of the people were fleeing at heart at some cases we're actually seen people at a much greater risk because of the limping coastguard marine sean rooms twodimensional thanks so much thanks for having me.
