Ni se hablará de ellos ni se recordarán sus nombres ni se conocerá su historia. Sus caras se perderán entre miles en las fotos de la prensa internacional. O ni siquiera eso. Pero ellos están aquí, con las caras quemadas bajo el sol inclemente de este comienzo de septiembre, en medio del infierno del puerto de Mitilene, en Lesbos.

En lugar de solidaridad y acogida, el agravamiento de la crisis de los refugiados este verano ha provocado parálisis y enfrentamientos entre los estados miembros de la UE, que no se ponen de acuerdo sobre un sistema de cuotas obligatorias para repartirse a los demandantes de asilo. A continuación explico las claves de esa parálisis y de lo que puede ocurrir a partir de ahora.

El pequeño de la foto no va a llegar con vida a la reunión del Consejo Europeo prevista para el próximo 14 de septiembre. 12 días más a la espera de decidir en los despachos qué hacer con una crisis humanitaria anunciada y sabida. Las iniciativas ciudadanas y las ONG intentan paliar la falta de acción coordinada de la UE.
