931 - 237 - 150 - 200 - 73 are only the numbers of the latest arrivals – of minors, of Moroccan citizens, of migrants withhold at the new hotspot of Trapani and of those who demonstrated for days in Agrigento.
On Monday 28 December, the Siem Pilot, just for sticking to the facts, docked in Palermo with 931 migrants of various origins. At the port the usual good will and availability of everybody was reenacted – the usual commitment, though, was not sufficient this time in light of the higher then expected number of minors and of people from the Maghreb. And the machinery collapsed.
