Read the statement about the “conspiracy.”
Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.
Explain and summarize the statement and your feelings about it.
- What are you thoughts on the film? Do you believe what it has to say? Why or why not?

lawless environment in Libya has made the country a long-lasting gateway to Europe and the complexities have made it unable to manage migration. The EU is therefore uniquely positioned to play an essential role, given its geographical proximity and the tragedies and human rights violations taking place right at its shores. Between 2014 and 2018, over 600 000 migrants have arrived on Italy’s shores and in 2015 “the Mediterranean became the world’s deadliest sea crossing”. It is in the EU’s best interest and responsibility to rethink its current policies and support to Libya, as its neighbourhood and member states’ stability are directly at stake.

Firstly the overall security situation. For instance, the lack of a central political actor has led to political, social, and economic instability, to an almost full devoid of the rule of law, to insecurity due to militias’ fighting over territory and political influence, and to an inability from organisations working in Libya to ensure policies’ implementation. Inter-community and inter-regional tensions have made international assistance and monitoring difficult, with organisations such as the IOM having to move its staff to Tunisia.

According to the IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix, out of the 700,000 to 1 million migrants estimated in Libya, more than 370,000 thousand are internally displaced. IDPs commonly require humanitarian assistance and can represent a strain for their host communities due to possible scarce resources and overstretched basic services. They are also likely to seek illegal migration routes and to experience human rights violation. Moreover, human rights violations in Libya are widespread and the victi>GET ANSWER
