Italy abandoning refugees to poverty and isolation, says report

Italy abandoning refugees to poverty and isolation, says report | CONFLICTS BASED ON RACISM |
Council of Europe says African migrants granted asylum in Italy are being relegated to the margins of society and face racism...

Via ASGI, Ang Marcus
Le Hong Phuc's insight:

I cannot stand reading the entire article. What kind of government is this? Being one of the most impactful nation in the world and in the history of mankind, the leaders themselves are portraying themselves as racist, discriminating and narrow-minded leaders. They must model the way instead, racism should not exist in a modern world like this.

Teh Shi Yun's curator insight, July 14, 2014 11:26 AM

The Italian government did not have a proper planning for the African refugees, this shows how the government has shown very little interest in helping the African refugees. The African refugees were wrong thinking that they would lead a better and more comfortable life in Italy. Due to the neglection of the society which is an act of racism, they were unable to even have basic necessities which might be as bad or even worse than where they came from. The government should treat everyone fairly in the country since the country has already accepted the African refugees as part of them.

Ray Kang's curator insight, July 16, 2014 6:59 AM

As stated in the article, the African people have risked their lives searching for the refuges, I think it is basic human right to have a proper place to live in and receive education so that they can be self-reliant. The Italian government should take the responsibility to take care of its own people.

Navas Ibraahim's curator insight, July 16, 2014 11:41 AM

I strongly feel that it is an act of racism for Italy to not helping the people in Africa. In my perspective, I strongly believe that everyone should be treated equally as well as lend a helping hand to others regardless of race and religion. The government of Italy should teach its citizens to treat anyone regardless of which race or religion.

Racist man on the London Underground

A racist man on the London unground starts shouting abusive and racist remarks at Japanese passenger then threatens to kill other passenger on train.
Le Hong Phuc's insight:

We have to accept the fact that the British and Japanese were once in war. However, we are living in the world of peace now. Who won the war is not important, but why can't this man just move on with the present. The old Japanese might had done something unright to the British, but that Japanese passenger there is the new Japanese generation, she's done nothing wrong, she's innocent.

Sonia Tommo's curator insight, July 13, 2014 6:05 AM

Its scary how recent this is, and how it still is actually happening all over the world. Yes there have been racial conflicts in the past, but haven't people moved on from that? This video shocked me to see how this man is judging and discriminating JUST based on appearance or assumption. Racism is a scary thing, as it is really hard to escape but i think what these people did on the train was right in defending the japanese guy and telling the old man off. People should speak up if they see something is wrong, because that is the only way to defeat this disgusting thing called Racism.

Phonehtet Aung's curator insight, July 13, 2014 9:35 AM

Although Britain and Japan were at war in the past, he should learn to forgive and forget, further more, the Japanese is innocent and is not at fault and cannot be blamed for what had happened in the past. The man should just move on and not abuse the passenger.

117John's curator insight, July 14, 2014 10:35 AM

Well the nasty one should be the racist guy himself. Yes, the Japanese people's forefathers had done wrong and the current generation is apologetic about it but this does not give any reason for the man to hurl abuses at the Japanese.

The extremists frequently attack Rohingyas and have set fire to their homes in several villages in Rakhine.

Le Hong Phuc's insight:

People die, injure, and lose their homes just because they can't accept the other's belief. I pity them, the Muslims, the victims of the attack. It will spread, more people will be affected, more damage will be cause, and worst, the conflict between the Muslim and the Buddhist will be worsen. I wonder why can't the government react faster, they can impose temporary law, curfew, or send in officers to get the situation in control.

Dong Yutong's curator insight, July 16, 2014 4:53 AM
Innocent people die, got badly injurd. They did nothing wrong, just because the extremists cant accept their beliefs. These actions are so self-centre and undesired. Only if they can come to an understanding, then so much sacrificent cant be prevented. The govenment could had react faster, then many lives could had been saved.
Ann Tan's curator insight, July 16, 2014 10:07 AM

After reading this article, I felt angry that the government did nothing to help the Muslims. The fact that the Muslims and Buddhist were treated differently led the conflict and prejudice due to the unfair treatment. At the same time, it was very heartbreaking to know that the Muslims' houses were being burnt down and were left homeless. They were neglected and tortured. Therefore, I think that the Muslims and Buddhists should be treated equally to prevent such prejudices they have among them.

Navas Ibraahim's curator insight, July 16, 2014 11:27 AM

It can be seen clearly that the Myanmar government not giving citizenship to Rohingya muslims is an act of racism. Also, the Buddhist extremists targeting them by attacking two mosques and hundreds of Rohingya Muslims’ houses is an act of racism. I strongly suggest that the government in Myanmar should treat its people regardless of race and religion and treat everyone equally.
