We just uploaded a few reports on the current situation in Sicily:

On August 31st we visited the reception centre for unaccompanied minors in Mazara del Vallo managed by the 'Sole' cooperative, which also manages another two projects of 'second reception', for minors, and one of 'first reception' for adults, all in the province of Trapani. See the result here: 28.08.2015 - Visit to a community for unaccompanied minors in Mazara del Vallo

Here you can find a report about the the Counter for Immigrants in Caltanissetta: Established 10 years ago and carried on by the commitment of 4 volunteers, the Counter for Immigrants of Caltanissetta activated the service for enrolment into the civil registry for people without a fixed home of the municipality of Caltanissetta in 2013, with the intention to hinder and combat the market for false residencies which had established in town – especially by some citizens who speculated on the necessity of foreigners to register for the renewal of the residence permit.

While it is discussed in the media all over the world what terminology to use to describe the phenomenon (migrants or refugees), the internet is overwhelmed with news of new tragedies that take place not far away from Europe, trying to get closer and closer to the heart of the so-called “old” continent that is closed like a “fortress”: Reporting on the migration flows in Europe these days turns into a war report
