Migrants protest against the regularisation fraud - Catania 16/12/2011

Migrants protest against regularisation fraud. In 2009 the government launched a regularisation for foreigners working as home helps. It excluded all other types of workers thereby favouring a black market of false documents and prestanomi (paying to use someone else's name in order to obtain a legal document to make a legal transaction) for the permit of stay. 
After more than 2 years, there are over 100 cases pending or delayed for spurious reasons. Processions and rallies were organised in front of the Prefecture by Coordinamento immigrati contro la sanatoria truffa (Immigration Committee against Regularisation Fraud), Catania Anti-Racist Network, Catania Network October 15th.
