This 26 June 2014 video is called Monkey Meat and the Ebola Outbreak in Liberia.
Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
“Asylum seekers should not be returned to Ebola countries”

Teeven, Dutch State Secretary of Homeland Security and Justice, temporarily should not return asylum seekers to Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia because of the Ebola crisis. [Opposition parties] SP, D66, Christian Union and Green Left say so, reports The Morning radio show.
The opposition parties think it is inhumane to send back asylum seekers to those countries now. Also, the government has “double standards,” said D66 parliamentarian Schouw in the show. “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs recommends not to travel to those countries, but the Justice Department says that asylum seekers can be deported there OK.”
According to Schouw, the Netherlands should follow Belgium’s example. There, it has already been decided that asylum seekers will not be returned to countries where Ebola is rampant.
The world’s political and economic elite, the financial aristocracy that dominates the global capitalist system, will take only token measures to help the millions who face sickness and death in the Ebola epidemic ravaging West Africa. This is clear from the dismal response to appeals from doctors, nurses and aid workers fighting the epidemic, and from leaders of the three hardest-hit countries, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea: here.
TV audiences in Britain could be forgiven for believing that international aid is confined to US and British military personnel arriving in west Africa to build medical facilities, alongside representatives of Medecins Sans Frontieres. Thursday’s early morning BBC World News did let slip that medical teams from China were also there, but that’s it. Morning Star readers know the impact that socialist Cuba has in not only deploying 50,000 health professionals in 66 developing countries but in sending its teams immediately when crises erupt: here.
