19 Year Old Sets Himself On Fire At Rome Airport

Tyler Durden's picture


The series of tragic European self-immolations continues, this time from Rome airport in front of hundreds of people, where moments ago Sky News reports, a 19-year-old man from the Ivory Coast, due for deportation, set himself on fire. From Sky: " The 19-year-old man, from the Ivory Coast, doused himself in petrol and set himself on fire in front of dozens of travellers and workers at Fiumicino airport, 10 miles west of the Italian capital. Police said he arrived at the departures area of the airport's terminal three with a deportation order, and had been due to leave Italy. But as he spoke to police he suddenly pulled out a plastic bottle of petrol, tipped it over himself and ran off through the terminal. Officers gave chase, but he then used a lighter to ignite the fuel in front of stunned passengers.... A spokesman for the Italian Refugee Council confirmed that the man had arrived in Italy from Holland earlier this week and had tried to claim asylum but had been denied and was ordered out of the country. He had been due to board a flight to Amsterdam when he set fire to himself. The spokesman added: "One can only imagine the desperation and frustration he must have faced to carry out such an act." He had been due to board a flight to Amsterdam when he set fire to himself. The spokesman added: "One can only imagine the desperation and frustration he must have faced to carry out such an act."


"People were screaming because no one knew what had happened and I think the first suggestion was that it might have been a terror attack."

Fellow traveller Silvana Urso said: "There was a lot of shouting and police running after someone, that was all I saw.

"There was a smell of smoke and then police were telling us to evacuate the terminal because there had been an incident.

"It was only when I was outside that I heard a man had set himself on fire."

One policeman grabbed a fire extinguisher to douse the flames and was slightly injured.

Paramedics wrapped the man in specialist blankets before taking him away in an ambulance.

A spokesman at the Sant'Eugenio hospital where he was being treated said he was in a "serious condition with extensive burns".

Sadly, since this is hardly the last episode of people self-immolating out of desperation in Europe (and elsewhere), perhaps it is about time the centralized government of the world finally banned lighter fluid. And matches. And lighters.

It'd be far more productive & of genuine use to their fellow citizens if these self-immolators would immolate the morally corrupt and wealth&power-is-our-true-god establishment enablers, instead.

They'd save themselves while furthering the cause of helping to save their fellow citizens in doing so.

A man’s life is a precious thing... A life is greater than gold and better than all else.

“It is a good thing to live, to walk out…and feel the wind, to walk in the forest on a moonlit night or out upon some great plateau and look westward." —Louis L’Amour

The Fed, the IMF, and the World Bank, are one. The thirst for power by the international bankers does not stop at any border. It was always to be the world; their gold, their oil, their empire, all is bought with blood.

Yeah, those fuckers, who do they think they are, right? As if it wasn't enough we've been pillaging them for centuries without even asking for permit... What more could they want from us? I mean, Jeez, what this world is coming to...

Funny story: so, beet sugar isn't competitive with cane sugar, right? No problem, just subsidize the shit out of it - but wait, chocolate uses sugar too, so they also want subsidies, too bad if it hurts their producers (losers; never heard of them, either). So, now, their (corrupt, of course) politicians threaten to raise import taxes to protect them, so what to do? Simple, just send someone "advise" them to not even think about it...

And for the save the world crowd: when you hand out clothes "for Africa" (because you're a caring, giving person) and it ends up in local markets (because it does), you're killing the local (traditional) clothes industry, who just can't compete...

This is why they flee ever here and we don't flee over there (yet?), but go tell that to anyone...

So when you hear about redistribution of wealth, remember it never ceased to happen for centuries, in our benefit... it's how we got this rich. We're their Goldman-Sachs.

Bankers and their political whores. Hitler had great programs for the youth. He created lots of work for the Germans and the youth were lifted out of the gutter and trained for life. I know it's not pc to point out the benefits of Hitler's programs but nobody can deny the fact that the youth grew up to be men and women with guts and hard work ethic. The German survivors of WW2 rebuilt that country which was largely leveled to the ground with their bare hands, shovels and buckets. They made it work after the bombings and maybe their training in the youth groups was a part of that. They fought and lost and they picked themselves up and came back from hell. The party is over in Europe - again. The bankers adn the current crop of political whores have wrecked the place. The generations coming now have a choice to make. Either continue to be slaves to the banking system and the political leadership or organize and drive them out of town. Then reset all assets and currency and start with a fair and ethical finacial system which doesn't rape 99% to fill the pockets of 1%. Let's try something different.

How many of the children born to German women in the 12  months following the fall of the Third Reich had German fathers.

A significant number were children of Communists. Soviet style Communists. Stalin style rape.

East Germany was a wasteland following the war. What you suggest might have some merit considering how many problems East Germans have adapting to the more productive West German lifestyle after the wall came down.

Never thought about who the fathers of West German kids were born in the 12 months after the war. French, Brits, Canadians, Americans .. quite possible.

Fascism is such a big word. Every society has their own propaganda and ways of brainwashing kids. Here in the US it's the churches, the military, colleges and Hollywood of course which are all doing such a fine job of misinforming the kids and making sure they grow up well behaved, controlled and without any resistance to their oppressors. This is decades in the making now. We have "good" kids but they don't want to work and can't survive without being told what to do or what to believe. Their level of frustration is rising because they bought into the education lie and cannot find jobs suited to their levels of education. But will they understand that they've been lied to and exploited as dumb tools for the benefit of the banks and the political class which made a killing on student loans?

That's a very generic statement. I could argue that every effort by the US military leads to abuse like we've seen in Abu Graib. You missed the point of my comment. Before any shots were fired, Hitler fought against the financial repressions under the treaty of Versailles. That treaty was a complete failure and Germany paid a huge price for the loss of WW1 and subsequent reparations. Never heard of before in the history of warfare.

Now we have a similar situation in Greece and similar financial treaties which have put the Greeks in eternal bondage to international finance. Who is responsible for international finance? Same group as always, same as it ever was. The icing on the cake is that the group is using Germany as their scapegoat (again) in order to get their money back. The money that was loaned under odious terms in the first place by the same group who fudged the Greek accounting in order to get the money flowing.

It's a huge conspiracy and the Greeks are being played like fiddles. The Germans as well. At 60% youth unemployment it will take a few months, maybe a year before Golden Dawn or other populist voting blocs take matters into their own hands and start revolting. There will be blood in the streets and it may even bring war between Greece and Germany. Greek partisan terrorists bombing the banks in Frankfurt would not surprise me the least.

The youth across Europe needs to organize against the cabal that put them in bondage. It starts with Greece and Spain but they're all in this together. Kick the current crop of political whores to the curb. Their mostly corrupt and have tunnel vision when it comes to tackling the big issues. If it doesn't benefit them, they won't listen. The European elite needs to take a major haircut on the debt they've created. The debt that was leveraged on wealth created from thin air. It's not real and neither are the obligations to pay it back. This is odious debt and we have no problem declaring debt such when we're talking about allegedly "corrupt" tin pot dictators for example.

Europe has a responsibility to Africans because of slavery. It must atone for its sins.

If that means an African who was not alive 200 years ago takes the job from a European who was not alive 200 years ago then that is the cost.

We owe this debt, it must be paid back, period.

Just like banks must pay their debts, or contries,..etc.

Sad for the guy and sad for the bystanders who have to live with the image of a burning man.

The guy went from Holland to Italy to claim asylum in Italy. Probably after being rejected in Holland. With asylum comes welfare. Not much but enough to live off and work under the table. Whatever. Ivory Coast is not grand but he wasn't even going back there anyway. He would have been stuck in Holland and waiting for paper work to clear which can take months. If he wanted to exit stage left, then that's his decision. Anyone can do that on their own terms if they feel it's not worth to keep living.

Not really that way anymore ... These days, asylum claimants in Europe in most places get zero welfare funds, unless their asylum application is approved, which is rare now and often takes many, many years ...

They may get shelter and food inside a waiting-reception centre which is often like a prison and people somewhat go crazy in there ... and they are often filled to overflowing so there is no room

Netherlands (Amsterdam, Holland) is very rough on claimants, and has begun to ship many back to Africa or wherever on planes ... they decline most applications and applicants do not get any funds while waiting

In general, asylum seekers live on the streets and beg, which actually somewhat works for them ... Tho work off-the-books is increasingly hard to find. In Belgium, for example, if you want a cheap house-cleaner, the government will pay much of the wage so you can hire a legal East European via an insured agency, instead of an illegal.

It is quite true that most asylum seekers in Europe have bogus claims, they are really economic migrants ... but the whole system is a mess, not giving people clear answers quickly. And a few really legitimate asylum seekers are thrown under the bus because there are so many fake applicants with whom they get lumped.

Europe is indeed chock full of migrants from people who were accepted as asylum seekers earlier, like in the 1990s, when it was much easier. Like that CIA-backed Muslim (and now anti-Muslim) black woman Hirsi Ali, who admitted she lied to get asylum in the Netherlands many years ago, and she has now become a US-backed neo-con stooge.

The reason Europe still has so many legal immigrants, is the immigrants accepted earlier had babies, and plus people have used all sorts of clever 'family re-unification', fake marriages and other schemes to get relatives and friends over here, everyone becomes a 'sister' or 'brother'.

But it is rough for asylum seekers who are not aggressive with begging and street wiles ... southern Europe is full of crime from non-legal immigrants now, which is fuelling parties such as Golden Dawn in Greece, taking aggressive action against immigrants.

It does seem clear, in Europe as in the US, that there was an earlier phase here where the floodgates were opened to many non-legal immigrants for no clear positive reason, seems almost a plot to help crash the European social and welfare systems.

Now asylum is very hard to obtain but Europe has both lots of immigrants now legal who arrived earlier, illegal immigrants who have been here for some years, and tons of people who keep arriving because where they live is quite poor.

Africans here have told me in much of Africa, they believe anyone who gets here becomes rich ... when Africans tell people back home it is rough and they live on the streets, the people back home in Africa do not believe them.

Seems to me you could break some law that would get you a few months/years of time.  Better in an Italian jail than in Africa.  Certainly better than becoming flambe.

Crazy, crazy. Africans will do anything to get to the West as asylum seekers, while the West is doing everything it can to get to Africa to gorge on its resources. How about we employ the Africans in their own country to do mining or whatever?

All this talk about inmigrants... Makes me so sad about human nature.

In the whole american territory (including Latin America) most of us are inmigrants, sons, generations of inmigrants. My father was italian. Right now Argentina is taking a lot of inmigrants from Europe, Japan, China, even from the US.

Xenophoby... I'm surprised to read it in ZH from people alledging they're libertarian.

Europeans, on the other hand, which population is turning old and bitter, which old people (and kids) have foreigners taking care of them, cleaning their homes (and their shit), watching over them, should have, at least, a little more decency.

Merde, there's no evolution whatsoever in the old, brutal, hypocritical, sad and bloodthirsty Europe.

Who told you they were illegal immigrants? Why are they illegal immigrants? What's the difference between someone coming to the United States in a leaky boat and the Mayflower arriving, full of English citizens, to what was once a land of tribal people?

Edit: You're also free to stop paying taxes, which will then help you do your part in not funding support for illegal immigrants.

You shouldn't be forced to pay for anybody.

Most people see the prime word in your statement is 'illegals'

Why do we overlook 'forced'?

Government is violent force directed against each and everyone of us.

The problem is government not illegals.

Libertarians are just anarchists who worry about who will pay for the roads.

Well I have some news for you, the government neither pays for the roads nor builds them.

The government does NOTHING but steal your money and/or throw you in jail.

Feudal serfs gave up 10-15% of their production to their masters.

Sounds pretty fucking good these days doesn't it?

that is one of the more difficult concepts for the bottom half of the class to understand. restricted immigration is the key to globalization since globalization is just a euphemism for labor cost arbitrage. unrestricted world labor movement would eventually diminish labor arbitrage and allow labor to go where the jobs are worldwide creating a much more level playing field creating real competitive advantage and not legislated and/or tax advantage.

It is really sad that this guy died.  We should have sent him to your house so he could live there and you could have fed him plus given him pocket money.  Libertarian does not mean I have to pay for somebody else aka illegal aliens.  Go f off.

Argentina is a corrupt shithole that is broke and they robbed private pensions.  They abuse the populace and have been doing it for ages.

Broken Promises: Pensions All Over America Are Being Savagely Cut Or Are Vanishing Completely

According to the Boston College Center for Retirement Research, the percentage of workers in America covered by a traditional pension plan fell from 62 percent in 1983 to 17 percent in 2007.

That isn't just a trend.

That is a tidal wave.

And many of the private pension plans that still exist are massively underfunded.  For example, Verizon's pension plan is underfunded by 3.4 billion dollars.

Migration to Argentina 'I do not know if I will live here forever, but for now I am doing well.'

We don't have the immolation standards Europe does. In stead of a bottle, we'd need 5 gallons. ( GPI, Gallons Per Immolation ). Of course, we're fatter which requires more gasoline, although once the fat and polyester clothing gets going,we're pretty much self fueling.

Here in the States, he'd first be shot 70 times by the airports TSA SWAT team. Then maybe blown up in casehe had a booby trap butt bomb. By that time the airspace would be pancaked up to 35,000 feet with hand launched police drones, county helicopters, Army signal intercept turboprops, a BOA advertizing blimp, CIA drones, EPA U2 at 70 K, and a NSA low earth sat. Union controlled Congresman eod want to pull the terminal down and rebuild at prevailing wage. Jessie Jackson would hold a conference at the nearest Hilton. Obama would blame the Bush administration. The gasoline will have found to have been purchased T either a Hess or a Irving gas station and Jews will be blamed. NY/LA Jews will appear on cable and blame Israel.
