The Austrian League for Human Rights publishes a magazine called "liga".
In an open letter to the Austrian government they blame the restrictive policies of the EU and Austrian officials to cause refugee deaths in the Mediterranian. They claim the treatment of refugees fosters fear in the public which is completely unfounded and strenghtens xenophobic political powers.
