He showed that the migrant flows towards Italy are fewer than the ones communicated by the media, that migrants use Italy as a means to reach other countries, that their period of stay is longer than the programmed one because of burocracy. He also pointed out some wrong European decisions, as granting Turkey so much money to keep the Kurdish away from western European countries, and now it menaces to open the ghetto they are in and let them reach western European countries.
Talk on “Practices for the inclusion of migrants and refugees: our experience” by Dr Maria Marcogliese, Operator of the Associatio “Dalla Parte degli Ultimi” and by Mamadi Sawo, Cultural Mediator to give positive examples of inclusion.
