The below text is a speech delivered by Chloë Jane at a discussion meeting in Newcastle. Jane is a comrade, a supporter of the newspaper Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! What follows is a brief, but concise, analysis of the drowning of asylum seekers in the Mediterranean. Given the EU plan to attack Libyan “smuggling” as early as the 25 June (a plan spearheaded by Britain), Jane’s speech is timely & necessary. I reproduce it here for precisely these reasons.
