African countries that are safe and relatively rich are being swamped by refugees coming from other African countries. However, far from welcoming them, those countries routinely expel them in a clear breach of international treaties.
The latest example of this comes from Ghana, where more than 500 refugees from Burkina Faso have been kicked out and sent back home.
Ghana shares a border with Burkina Faso, and therefore, Ghana is obliged to accept those refugees. However, it seems Ghanaian authorities don’t care about international treaties and obligations, and so they refuse entry to refugees. Many of those seeking refuge are women and children who are escaping attacks by Islamist groups.
This reaction from Ghana forced the UNHCR, the United Nation refugee agency, to condemn the decision taken by Ghana. The UNHCR has offered its support to help Ghanaian authorities deal with those refugees, but so far, to no avail.
The most thought-provoking aspect of this story is that Ghana has signed the 1951 UN Convention on refugees, but still, it keeps ignoring its obligations under international law; this is happening because, like nationalists in the UK, Ghanaians want to preserve their country, and they don’t want to see it swamped by immigrants.
Unsurprisingly, the mainstream media keep ignoring this story because doing otherwise would undermine their open borders agenda. Therefore, they should not condemn nationalists trying to stop the arrival of refugees in the UK.
What is happening in Ghana is not an exception but the norm in Africa. Tunisia is ejecting Africans arriving in their country. Algeria is leaving would-be refugees in the desert. Both countries have also signed the 1951 United Nations Refugee Convention.
The British government should take notice!
The British Democrats have the policies to deal with the migrant invasion of our country by withdrawing from the following three treaties:
(1) The UN 1951 Refugee Convention.
(2) The European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).
(3) The Global Compact for Migration.
