THIS IS AN INJUSTICE, AND WE CANNOT CONTINUE TO LIVE LIKE THAT!
We want a life worthy of that name!
We need documents to rebuild our lives and be able to imagine our futures. Italian law provides for the granting of residence permits for humanitarian purposes to those who escaped from a war, but this was not applied to us. The only thing we could reach for was the request for asylum, but the path is long, expensive and the outcome is uncertain. Many of us have already received a negative decision and are at the point of departure.
By sharing and signing the appeal of our brothers and sisters of the assembly of asylum seekers in Trento, the asylum seekers in the CARA Mineo denounce the amount of time passing before many asylum applications are examined (there are some who have been waiting for over 10 months). The slowness of the process is partly caused by the Commission assessing less than half of the amount of applications per week than were processed each week last year – despite the CARA being fully occupied.
