Welcome Europa

They are our neighbours, they live next door to us and, like us, they are looking for a better job, a roof, a house and something warm to eat. And yet we don’t know who they are, what they want, where they come from or why. And we are afraid of them. We reject them, we look at them with scorn. They are immigrants, with their lives, their fates, their problems and their disappointments.
