Call for Articles: International Migrants Day 18th of December

A boat with refugees tries to reach Lampedusa (Italy); miles away a family decides to emigrate to Canada; their neighbour just migrated from Portugal to Paris. People have been on the move for centuries. Some have been success stories, others unfortunately not, because of obstacles, bad luck, or political decisions. We as the FYEG Working Group on Migration, Culture and Identity would like to raise awareness on migration in all its aspects. On the 18th of December it is International Migrants Day: a perfect time for awareness raising!
For this we need you! We therefore ask you to write and send us small articles, opinion pieces, and other related contributions, which will be published on our blog and the Ecosprinter starting on the 18th December. You can for instance write about the situation of the migrants and/or refugees in your country, have an interview with someone who migrated or how your member organisation approaches this topic.
The deadline is 15th of December. Your contribution should be not more than 750 words and can be send to bart@dwars.org. And if you have a picture under creative commons license, it is also more than welcome.
