We live in a world dominated by the principle of private property. Once indigenous people were dispossessed of their lands, the land was surveyed, subdivided and sold to the highest bidder. From high above, continents now appear as an endless property patchwork of green and yellow farms, beige suburban homes and metallic gray city blocks stretching from sea to shining sea.

Focus on European Refugee Crisis

The ongoing European Migrant Crisis involves people from Africa, the Balkans, and the Middle East, coming to countries in Europe.

The European migrant crisis or European refugee crisis arose through the rising number of refugees and migrants coming to the European Union, across the Mediterranean Sea or Southeast Europe, and applying for asylum. They come from areas such as the Middle East (Syria, Iraq, Yemen), Africa (Eritrea, Nigeria, Somalia, Sudan, Gambia), the Western Balkans (Kosovo, Albania, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia) and other parts of Asia (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh). According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, as of early September 2015, 71% of the Mediterranean Sea arrivals are refugees coming from Syria, Afghanistan and Eritrea. ~ Wikipedia
