UK newspaper publishes list of refugees who died while trying to reach Europe

A leading British newspaper has published the names of 34,361 refugees and migrants who are known to have died while trying to make it to Europe.

The Guardian said the people whose names it released did not just die “at sea, but [also] in detention blocks, asylum units and even town centres”.

“People have been dying while trying to get into Europe for more than 20 years.”

The list was collated by United for Intercultural Action (UNITED), a Dutch non-governmental organisation for several years, the paper said, and the names were published to coincide with World Refugee Day.

“The major significance of the list is in its signals. It shows that this has been ongoing for 25 years and the people who pretend to be shocked now should have been shocked a long time ago,” Thomas Spijkerboer, a professor at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, told the newspaper.

According to new figures released by the UN refugee agency UNHCR, by the end of 2017, 68.5 million individuals “were forcibly displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict, or generalized violence” worldwide.
