I already wrote my World Refugee Day 2011 post for the week, the day before the official World Refugee Day, yesterday. But as I mentioned in that post, there are events going on in different places all during the week, so the day is really this week. And besides, due to the quirk in the Recent MyFDL Diaries list, my post was gone by the actual day, anyway.

I wanted to call people’s attention to the Think Africa Press

Refugee Special Edition

There are a number of good articles there, you can find out about how World Refugee Day used to be Africa Refugee Day, about how former host nations are now hemorrhaging refugees themselves due to new pressures and the Arab Spring. You can find out what pressures climate change is putting on the refugee crisis world wide.

So take a look at the continent where people walk for their lives.
