Enfant noyé au Mexique: La famille du petit Alan porte plainte pour plagiat

C’est l’un des clichés iconiques du drame que traversent des millions de migrants sud-américains… Une photo de deux corps, celui d’un père et sa fille âgée de 2 ans, noyés près d’une rive du Rio Grande et enlacés, émeut au-delà des frontières du Mexique. Les deux corps ont été retrouvés ce lundi  24 juin, dans les environs de Matamoros, dans l’Etat mexicain de Tamaulipas, selon un rapport de la justice mexicaine.

Les parents du petit Alan Kurdi ont annoncé qu’ils porteraient plainte pour plagiat, le brevet ayant été déposé sur les enfants morts noyés qui servent à émouvoir l’opinion publique qui peut ainsi faire semblant d’en avoir quelque chose à foutre, parce que quand même quand il y a des photos c’est triste, alors que quand on voit juste des chiffres sur les milliers de morts en méditerranée on en a rien à branler.

Alan Kurdi (kurde : Alan Kurdî), initialement orthographié par la presse Aylan Kurdi1, né en 2012, est un jeune garçon syrien d’origine kurde, originaire de Kobané et réfugié de la guerre civile syrienne. Il est mort noyé le  à l’âge de trois ans2. La photographie de sa dépouille gisant sur une plage de Turquie entraîne une onde de choc mondiale et relance la question de l’accueil des migrants syriens.

Et depuis on s’en bat les couilles au point où on n’accueille pas des bateaux avec 32 migrants à bord en France. 

Cet article n’est pas drôle ? Non, il n’est pas drôle, bien vu Sherlock.

Voici la liste des morts sur les routes migratoires depuis 1993, sans photo, donc moins facile de faire semblant d’en avoir quelque chose à foutre:
