The Trafficker: The evil genius behind the migrant crisis - Connie Agius, Alex Perry

Ethiopian Ermias Ghermay is thought to have made a fortune from the evil migrant trafficking trade and is wanted for the deaths of hundreds of migrants.
This book is about it.
Insightful and clarifying the facts, it is only 35 pages long in print.
But it doesn't need to be longer.
It says all that needs to be said to wake you up and bring the cruel realities about human trafficking into your daily world.
"Lots of people are fish food now, but no one ever says anything about that."
"We've globalised capital, but not labour."
"Few factors shape a child's life as the one that she can do nothing about - the flag under which she was born."
Maybe there is something we can do about it. 
Read the book. Think about it.
We are all humans. 
The Flag under which we are born should not define our destiny.
