We’ve Launched a Migrant Rescue Ship to Resist the Racist Right in Italy

Michael Hardt, Sandro Mezzadra

We are part of an activist project that launched the Mare Jonio, a rescue ship that is now motoring toward the “search and rescue” zone off the coast of Libya. In contrast to rescue ships operated by humanitarian NGOs, which have been blocked in recent months by the Italian government, the Mare Jonio flies an Italian flag and is mainly operated by an Italian crew.
