Leander House, Massachussetts

Hola, em dic David, actualment tinc 26 anys, I fa 2 mesos i mig que estic realitzant el voluntariat de llarga durada aquí a Sheffield, Massachusetts.   Sempre havia volgut treballar amb persones amb necessitats especials, havia fet coses de magnituds molt petites en comparació amb això, i m'havien portat molta satisfacció personal. Estic a un projecte de l'SCI d'Estats Units a l'oest de Massachusetts que s'anomena Leander House i consisteix en compartir el dia a dia amb persones adultes amb (dis)capacitat intel·lectual.

Cooperem en la diversitat

Ja fa 5 anys que el districte de Ciutat Vella organitza les jornades "Cooperem en la diversitat", un espai de reflexió, debat i apropament a la realitat quotidiana de les persones amb diversitat funcional. La finalitat del projecte és reflexionar sobre les situacions que es troben les persones amb diversitat funcional i buscar un apropament a les situacions quotidianes que viuen. Al llarg d'aquests anys s'ha convertit en un espai per a la reflexió i sensibilització des de l'enfocament del "dret als drets", entrant en diàleg sobre les dificultats, oportunitats i capacitats que han descobert a partir de la seva (dis)capacitat.

On the 25 of September we start the day by discussing control, detention and expulsion of migrants. Aurea Martin shared with us her knowledge and experience as an activist. We also talked about ethnic profiling, which happens in Spain. Ethnic profiling is when police randomly stop people who they believe are without papers, which is forbidden by the law. Aurea told us that the Spanish government spends a lot of money (over 11 million Euros) on deportation, of migrants, every year. There are two kinds of large scale deportation flights: Deportation on regular flights, when people who are being deported share flight with passengers who travels for pleasure and the other kind is massive deportation flights which are organized by the government or by Frontex to deport dozen of immigrants by force, against their own will.

Today Xoan Perillan came to talk about his experience of the southern border of Spain. This was a really interesting topic for us because some us of have never heard of the situation in the Southern border and his presentation really opened up our eyes. We talked about Ceuta and Melilla, which are Spanish territories in Africa. In the light of this conversation we talked about the borders not only as physical and geographical limitations but also as mental an artificial borders. In the Southern border of Spain, Sub-Saharan migrants have been trying to cross the borders to reach the two cities, because when they are in a Spanish zone, they can seek for asylum in Spain at least in theory.

Today we started with the topic of borders, externalization of borders and the freedom to move. Juli, from Stop Mare Mortum, explained the work, history and structure of their organization. We found out that the Mediterranean sea has been one of the deadliest seas recently, because refugees have been risking their lives to cross it with small boats and arrive to their destinations. Stop Mare Mortum helps refugees to cross borders more safely and offers them legal advice. They also offer children and adolescents training sessions in schools about refugees’ journey which is full of danger and obstacles.
