Who is to Blame for the Refugee Crisis?

Synopsis
Extended news report. Today 60 million human beings are displaced from war and extreme poverty. Many European countries are responding to the crisis with racist hysteria and police state measures. Abby Martin exposes the facts that are left out of the mainstream reporting: the role of criminal wars, disastrous neo-liberal economics and why mass displacement is a permanent feature under this system. [30 minutes].
