The artist has made this graffiti after the Open Arms ship was 19 days awaiting authorization to disembark

The artist, who has portrayed various public figures in several cities, has made this graffiti after the Open Arms ship was 19 days waiting for authorization to land rescued people in the sea.

They landed on Wednesday in Lampedusa (Italy) after a court order and with 83 people on board – others were evacuated before due to various emergencies and needs – from which Spain will host 15.

The Open Arms later left Lampedusa to go to a port in Sicily, by an order issued by the Agrigento Prosecutor's Office, which ordered the provisional hijacking of the ship.

Proactiva Open Arms could face a fine of up to 901,000 euros for having resumed rescues in the Mediterranean, as the central government warned the NGO in a letter in June.

Do you approve that ‘Open Arms’ can be sanctioned for rescuing?
