The European Refugee Crisis and Syria Explained – Animated Infographic
I stumbled across this animation which caught my attention because one it looks pretty and two it explains what I need to know about this crisis in a basic way that even I will understand. So basically what I can gather from this is that the Crisis involved the following facts:
- It started due to civil war.
- The camps are crowded, Under supplied, people suffer from cold, hunger and disease.
- Many states refuse to take in refugees, border states are having to deal with it because of their proximity.
- ISIS moved in and tried to convert everyone and started a war using chemical weapons and everything else pure evil.
- Most of the support for asylum seekers is from citizens not politicians.
- 4 Million Refugees.
- Countries will not allow access to asylum seekers out of fear of religion, uneducated people, changing the country they live in, birth rate and taking over and increase in crime.
- Interesting fact of refugees travelling with smart phones has raised the issue that people do not really believe that they need help at all.
- Social Media and Internet has become a useful part of being a refugee for GPS, facebook groups give hints and tips about obstacles.
