Benefit Voku for Ventimiglia

Short url:

Every day at the French-Italian border hundreds of people are rejected by the French police and sent back to Italy, without allowing them to apply for international protection in the transalpine country. People are stopped in France, mainly in the city of Menton, but also in the French territory, those that do not have valid documents for expatriation, are taken by the French police corps to the Paf (Police Aux Frontières) office in Ponte San Luigi, at the so-called high border: here they are detained for several hours, the time to identify them and notify them of the “refus d’entrée”, a document declaring the person ineligible on French territory.Progetto 20K and Kesha Niya Kitchen are support groups whose aim is to bring solidarity and support to migrants who become stuck in the territory of Ventimiglia (italy) due to the national and European migration policies. The main objective of the groups is to support the freedom of movement for all people, provide aid to those in need and in the process being active to obtained and guaranteed them rights with the tools they need to be able to continue their journey autonomously, creating paths of solidarity that allow them to build common practices and imaginations, beyond any border. NO BORDERS NO PROBLEMS !!
