SOS mediterranee scrive all’incontro europeo dell’ifor. 



Dear friends of Mir/Ifor, at your European meeting we want to send our greeting and wish you all good work. Working for nonviolence and peace is a tough task and the path is not without obstacles. The moment is difficult for those who believe in the values ​​of solidarity, cooperation, and coexistence among peoples.

Insecurity and economic crisis push us to shrink in their selfishness.

It reminds us of the controversy that, as SOS Mediterranee and NGOs engaged in the rescue at sea of ​​those who try to cross the Mediterranean in flight from wars, hunger and persecution, are investing us daily with increasing violence.

Never, as it is at this time, is so important to network, to work together, to remain unswervingly to witness possible alternatives to selfishness and indifference. 

THEREFORE WE BELIEVE THAT IT WOULD BE IMPORTANT NOW TO RECOGNIZE THE BOND OF SOLIDARITY ‘COMBINING OUR ORGANIZATIONS AND THAT UNITES US IN MUTUAL SUPPORT , IN COLLABORATION ON OUR WORK AND ON THE DISSEMINATION OF ETHICAL AND MORAL PRINCIPLES THAT DISTINGUISH OUR MISSIONS OF PEACE AND HUMANITY’ 

A greeting of peace

Valeria Calandra

President Sos Mediterranee Italia
