LAMPEDUSA, Italy, Jun 22, 2011 (IPS) – It”s only a few hundred metres from the rocky hillside overlooking Lampedusa”s commercial port to the other side of the protected bay. For more than a decade this narrow strip of ocean has been a migratory gateway into Europe for tens of thousands of mostly African migrants. The numbers have risen and fallen in response to shifting government policies and geopolitical developments.

Second of my two IPS Lampedusa pieces.   Here’s the link to the whole article:
