CARA di Mineo: The migrants hosted by the welcome centre for asylum seekers pray for the spouses killed in Palagonia

The Community of Sant’Egidio: “Do not exploit the tragic event: many migrants volunteer in very useful services to the communities”

CATANIA (Italy) – The youngsters hosted by Mineo’s CARA (the welcome Centre for asylum seekers) involved for a long time in activities of solidarity and support to the poor, together with the Community of Sant’Egidio, express their deepest sympathy for the tragic occurrences that happened in Patagonia (where Mercedes Ibanez and Vincenzo Solano have lost their lives) and want to share their solidarity with the victims’ families.

Having perceived this act as inhuman and horrible, they welcome everyone to their prayer in memory of Mercedes Ibanez and Vincenzo Solano on Monday, 7th Sepstember at 5:00 PM. This wants to be our answer, together with the migrants that love peace and – by escaping wars and violence – have had to abandon their land.

“We need to strongly condemn this and any other act of violence so brutal” – said Emiliano Abramo from the Community of Sant’Egidio – “likewise, we need to avoid to fall in the trap of exploiting the tragic deaths for political interests or any other nature, without considering the positive example that the majority of the migrants are giving, most of whom have been volunteering for helpful services to the people. With pride we defend the choice of welcoming that continues to gather concrete positive fruits, contributing to building the culture of living together, which is in the heart of Italian and European civilization. The invitation of the youth hosted by CARA to a prayer in memory of the victims of Palagonia is a human and supportive answer in a world that too often seems to have forgotten human compassion”.
