Members of the Irish Anti War Movement (IAWM), highlight the plight of refugees around the world and what they called the “shameful” response of the EU to the migrant crisis.
According to Channel 4 News, [German Chancellor Angela] Merkel said EU countries should distribute the refugees among them according to the countries’ wealth and she singled out Ireland, Denmark and Britain for not participating in such a programme. The three countries have an opt-out from a quota scheme for housing migrants.
