Medical oxygen a luxury in much of the world

When an Atlanta resident died from the coronavirus in his West African homeland of Guinea, many wondered if a lack of medical-grade oxygen was to blame. What’s taken for granted in wealthy countries is expensive and scarce in much of the world. (June 24)

Mass protests in Guinea against possible third term for President Conde | AFP

Thousands of Guinean opposition supporters gather in Conakry for a mass rally against President Alpha Conde’s purported desire to stand for a third term in office. Wearing the opposition colour red, protesters carry placards reading “No to a new constitution” and “No to a third mandate for Alpha Conde”.

Opposition protests against politicians and police impunity

In Guinea, members of the political opposition demonstrate in the capital Conakry to demand the implementation of the political agreement on the establishment of communal elected officials and to denounce the violence of the defence and security forces. Several hundred people demonstrate on “The Prince” road, one of Conakry’s two main roads, before the situation turns into clashes between groups of young people armed with stones and the police, who respond with tear gas.

Migrant Tomato Workers Are Dying Under Mafia-Like Control (HBO)

Sixteen migrant farm laborers died this month in two separate road crashes within 48 hours of each other in Italy, sparking the workers to stage a mass walkout by the workers that has drawn international attention to the dire conditions endured by seasonal tomato pickers.

The crashes occurred close to the southern city of Foggia, which hosts half a dozen makeshift camps for illegal workers. Both accidents involved overcrowded vans carrying migrant laborers home from long shifts in the region’s tomato fields.

The vans are often operated by illicit gang members, known as the Caporali, who act as middlemen in Italy’s $3.5 billion tomato industry, supplying farm owners with cheap labor and taking a cut of the workers’ wages.

That leaves workers like Mohamed Doumbé Keita, an undocumented migrant from Guinea, earning less than $30 for a shift that can last up to 15 hours in scorching heat.

“It’s like the return of slavery,” Mohamed told VICE News. “Life is tough here. There’s no medical care, and each man fends for himself. If you don’t put in ten hours a day, you won’t even make €20.”

Though Italy’s previous government passed a new law to criminalize the Caporali as a mafia crime, it’s only now being enforced for the first time.

But the legislation targets farmers rather than the middlemen themselves, threatening a jail term of up to eight years for landowners found to be hiring laborers through the Caporali, and imposing penalties for using illegal workers.

That has angered some farmers, who feel their earnings are already squeezed by big retailers and consumer demand for cheap produce. VICE News went to Italy to see what the situation is really like.
