Rome (NEV), July 13, 2019 – The motion proposed by the Florentine Waldensian journalist, Roberto Davide Papini, was welcomed and adopted by the Radical Party during its 41st Congress,  held in Rome from 5 to 7 of July last.
Recalling “the Marco Pannella historic battle against extermination by hunger and war in the world and against the global economical disorder”, the motion “reiterates the urgent need to address the issue of migrations starting from the living conditions in developing nations and not only in its ultimate effects on European countries”.
“The migration issue is a very dear topic to the Radical Party, as it includes human rights and  the rule of law that underlies this phenomenon”, recalled Papini, speaking during the Congress.
The motion therefore highlights “the necessity and the urgency for the adoption of European humanitarian corridors from Libya, as proposed by the Federation of Protestant Churches in Italy (FCEI), by the Waldensian Board and by the Community of St. Egidio, to guarantee legal and secure access to thousands of refugees”.
