Facing prison for saving refugees: Interview with Miguel Duarte for Frontline

Frontline is a DiEM TV show about people who confront power, to figure out how they do it. The goal: to leave you with tips, tactics and inspiration for your own activist projects.

In this episode, Mehran Khalili speaks to Miguel Duarte, the migrants rights activist who helped save 14,000 people from drowning in the Mediterranean, and faced 20 years in prison for it.

The conversation is a great primer on the EU migration crisis, that sadly persists. But it also contains valuable ideas for your own activist work — whether in migrants’ rights or other areas.
