UNIMED has joined the initiative launched by LegalTeam Italia, Campagna LasciateCIEntrare, Progetto Melting Pot Europa and Medicina Democratica concerning the urgent need for a regularisation of the “irregular” migrants in Italy.
Among the priorities of UNIMED, the topic of Migration has always been very relevant with particular focus on the access to education.
In this moment, with the current COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot deny undocumented migrants access to basic rights, we must support their access to the health system to protect everybody from this dangerous illness.
A collective regularisation during this emergency will allow equal access to this basic human right and will be a step forward for the regularisation of each individual migrant. The process of regularisation of migrants, in Italy, has been slowed by the policies of multiple governments in the last decade.
We believe that an effective action from our government, considering this extra-ordinary situation, is much needed and urgent.
