We live in an age of egoism. “Me first” prevails over solidarity and compassion. “We first” is more important than working across borders to face the challenges of our time. Is it what we really want for the next generations?

3 key messages after air strikes killed many migrants&refugees at a Libyan detention centre: they must NOT be detained; civilians must NOT be a target; Libya is NOT a safe place of return. And of course, states with influence must cooperate to end conflict, rather than fuel it.
