Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Meanwhile the EU set to spend €62 billion to tackle migration from African and Asia. EU leaders made a announcement on Tuesday 28th June.

"Under the Partnership Framework with third countries, which the council adopted, 16 countries of origin and transit for migrants will be pressured to cooperate with the EU’s goals on curbing migration. Their compliance is to be rewarded with various “incentives” including development aid and trade deals. Non-cooperation will be met with unspecified “negative incentives” – presumably the withholding of aid and trade." Source

Human rights organizations are very concerned and have denounced the plans.

Médecins Sans Frontières also criticised the Council for its decision and warned of the “serious humanitarian consequences of the agreement, especially in Greece”.

Again, the EU are not being transparent: where is the money coming from exactly, no open discussion/ debate inclusive of human rights organizations as to how best to deal with the crisis and the long term effect it will have on third world countries.
