Web-Radio On The Move is finally online

The inspiration to create Web-Radio On The Move came from one of the many activities of ASCS Onlus - Agenzia Scalabriniana per la Cooperazione allo Sviluppo (Scalabrinian Agency for Cooperation and Development) in the project Fronteras Solidarias. With a small radio created at the border between Bolivia and Argentna, some young women, victims of human trafficking, were able to share their stories thanks to the sense of protection that the radio was giving to them. 
From this experience came the desire to develop a project also in Italy and in Europe, at Casa Scalabrini 634, also inspired by the expertise of the Scalabrinian Congregation with the network of Web-Radio Migrantes in South America. 
Web-Radio On The Move focuses on the stories of the people and is a tool of awareness, education and entertainment on human mobility and integration. To find out more information and to listen to the Web-Radio visit the website www.onthemoveradio.it

Contexto

La Unión Europea, al igual que otras partes del mundo, ha estado experimentando una "crisis migratoria" sin precedentes. Esto ha supuesto una tremenda presión no sólo sobre las políticas migratorias, sino también sobre los valores y principios fundamentales de la sociedad humana.

Los países europeos y los ciudadanos, por ejemplo, han reaccionado a la crisis migratoria de manera diferente y conflictiva, y la migración se ha convertido en la nueva división política en Europa, influyendo en el resultado de los procesos electorales, políticos y de toma de decisiones. La propaganda populista ha explotado la crisis migratoria hasta el punto de que, por algunos segmentos de la sociedad, los migrantes y los refugiados ya no son percibidos como seres humanos necesitados, sino percibidos como una amenaza genérica para la seguridad y la identidad de las comunidades locales. En consecuencia, son sumariamente rechazados.

Casa del Migrante in Tijuana: 30 years with doors and hearts open

In 1987, Father Flor María Rigoni placed the first stone in Tijuana that would become the pioneer Migrant Shelter in Mexico. After 30 years of service, the Shelter continues to recreate and adapt to migration changes and the needs of its guests. Although there have always been aspects that hinder our mission, such as the hardening of migration policies and the increase in violence, 2016 brought new challenges: in addition to receiving more than 7,000 Mexican migrants deported and in transit, about 2,000 migrants were received from 32 different countries. This brought with it linguistic, cultural, and operational challenges.

Today, just over 10 months after the extraordinary flow of asylum seekers in Tijuana began, 2017 is designed as a year to lay the foundations and prepare ourselves for what follows. New challenges will come and the immigration measures promoted by President Trump foreshadow difficulties, but also opportunities for improvement; implement more Social Reintegration programs for the deportees; and continue to guide migrants in rebuilding their lives.
