The case against the “Open Arms”: key events
The newspaper “Ara” from Barcelona presents the events that led Italy’s justice to confiscate the rescue boat “Open Arms” and institute preliminary proceedings against the responsible party. During the rescue operation off the Libyan coast the newspaper had a team of reporters on board the ship. The course of events are visualized on a sea map where the readers can see where the refugees’ boats and the rescue boat are located. Photos and short films convey an impression of what is happening. The texts are accompanied by an indication of the appropriate times of the series of events. At the top of the individual pages is a timeline which turns red while being scrolled, thus giving the readers an idea of the moment within the rescue process.
