They arrived three days ago from Libya and soon would like to leave Italy. Why they do not want to be identified: "No fingerprints, otherwise we stay here, the other nations they send us back, we do not accept."
Nearly three hundred migrants this morning took to the streets on the outskirts of Cagliari: they left the hotel turned into a reception center for refugees and blocked the road, in one of the busiest parts of the city. "This is Europe, but we are treated like in Libya," someone says. The migrants had arrived in Sardinia, rescued by a Spanish military ship. "Among these migrants there are dramatic stories, many women who have been raped in the prisons of Libya, before departure – tells the cultural mediator Genet W. Keflay – some of them have given birth in jail. Most of these guys spent seven or eight months in the Isis structures. " They dream of going to Germany, France and in the countries of Northern Europe: "This – shout in the street – is not freedom."
