WE ARE NOT MEAT FOR SLAUGHTER

  • LA MAISON DI FRANCO PIANEGONDA 17 Contrà delle Morette Vicenza, Veneto, 36100 Italy (map)

Certain issues define eras and, as citizens of the world, we cannot allow ourselves to remain neutral. Today, the migrant crisis is one of these .
You can believe that freedom of movement is a right, that borders are nothing but invisible lines that may at any time be crossed and that you have the choice to live where you prefer, regardless of the country in which you were born, your wealth and the color of your skin.
Or, on the contrary, you might think that these are privileges, belonging to a select few, and that it all depends on the passport in your pocket the amount of the money hoarded in the bank.
The shifting masses of migrants encompass the meaning of the word “movement” in the twenty-first century. The position we have on the migrant crisis, the long and short-term answers we give, in cities or nations, on the bus or at work, reveal our true nature as individuals and as a community. Our views on this matter tell what we think about human relationships, whether we find it acceptable to ignore how our well-being is made possible by the exploitation of others, or whether we find this intolerable.
Those same views make yet another thing clear: either you believe that the world is fine as it is, or you think change is necessary to make our planet a fairer place. 
Whose side are you on?
