Hear: Judy Greenspan, Workers World Party, discuss the causes of the migrant/refugee crisis in the Middle East and Africa. Alice Dodge Loaiza, Marcha Patriótica - Capítulo California of Colombia, will talk about the peoples of Latin America who have been forced to flee their countries. STOP the MASSIVE DISPLACEMENT OF PEOPLES, VIOLENCE, RACISM, WARS, & DEATH! Whether through wars of destabilization or labor export programs, tens of millions are displaced from their home countries due to monopoly capitalism’s drive to control the markets, resources, territories, while extracting super-profits. Neoliberal economic policies and mercenary armies are unleashed on countries where imperialism has strategic interests, in order to undermine and overturn economic and political sovereignty. As we mark the one year anniversary of the Ayotzinapa 43 students who challenged neoliberal economic policies being imposed in Mexico, while the images of 2-year old Syrian refugee Aylan Kurdi washed up on a Turkish beach and an overloaded boat sinking off the coast of Libya captures the ongoing reality of refugees fleeing wars of destabilization in the Middle East and Africa due to US-backed mercenary armies seeking to overthrow regimes. Meanwhile the U.S. has seen another spike in the number of unaccompanied minors entering the U.S., with 4600 apprehended at the U.S./Mexico border in August.
