The Fate of the 'Sea People'

To desperately escape horrid conditions at home only to meet tragedy on the seas in escaping or unwelcoming ports of entry, is the dilemma of the 'Sea People' - those people displaced by conflict, war and failing economic systems in the lands of their origins.

From Africa to Syria, to Libya and to ports beyond, socio-economic and political conditions are sending tens of thousands of desperate people in search of better lives for their families. More than 11 million people alone have been displaced by Bashar al Assad's war in Syria. Added the Libyan conflict, the terror of the Islamic State and other extremist groups in the Middle East, and economic conditions and strife in North Africa, millions of the world's people are on the move, in search of stability and the opportunity to better themselves.

And while some ports of destination for the 'Sea People' are in sure need of a readily available new pool of labor, many other nations remain unwelcoming to the emigrants. 

Hence, some 'Sea People' will find fortune, yet, sadly, on the other hand, a bleak and tragic fate await too many. Two recent accidents at sea claiming more than 800 emigrant lives is indicative of a bad fate that could await some.

Therefore, as accepting European nations make the necessary adaptations to cope with the large influx of emigrants, concerted efforts should also be concentrated upon improving the conditions in the home nations from whence the 'Sea People' come.
