The meeting of EU leaders held on Wednesday 23 in Brussels to discuss the immigration crisis failed miserably. The crisis deepens, once the influx of people does not stop (the asylum claims in Europe so far this year exceeded the figure of 530,000). Hungary set a new record this week with over 10,000 people having entered its borders in less than 24 hours. Greece and Italy will open in the coming weeks "reception centers" (rather say detention centers) to separate economic migrants from those fleeing the war. The fascist Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban refused to include his country in the plan to open such centers arguing that the increased repression should be the priority action to "stop the illegal entry of immigrants."

Its roots lie in the convulsed years of the First World War and it ends in mid-1940 when the Nazi triumphs in France and the artists go to exile.

The current immigration crisis in Europe must be understood as the tip of the iceberg of a much deeper systemic crisis of the capitalist system in its present stage of decline and destruction. Such crises are occurring at dwindling intervals of time and are more profound and destructive. The way out given by the governments of Europe and the US is increasing the misery in the periphery and in their own countries to continue guaranteeing the richer their profits.

The European Central Bank (ECB) announced the injection of up to €1 trillion by buying government bonds worth up to €50bn (£38bn) per month until the end of 2016. The injection of “fresh” money is called Quantitative Easing (QE), a measure adopted by U.S. and Britain in the last years. According to the economists, creating new money to buy government debt should reduce the cost of borrowing and stimulate spending by companies (new investments) and consumers.
