1200 migrants rescued by HMS Bulwark - June 2015 


More than 1200 migrants were rescued by HMS Bulwark on the 7th June, 2015 off the Libyan coast. They had been left drifting in the hope of being rescued and brought to Europe. While tragedy was avoided on this occasion, many thousands have perished trying to attempt this journey often fleeing war, poverty and persecution in their home countries. For those lucky enough to survive the journey, their treatment once in Europe is often appalling. The migrants face months of internment, racial abuse and a life on the margins of mainstream society.
