Wich Way Home – Cuál es el camino a mi casa? – Trying to reach the US

Featured Video Play Icon

“Which Way Home” is a feature documentary film that follows unaccompanied child migrants, on their journey through Mexico, as they try to reach the United States. We follow children like Olga and Freddy, nine-year old Hondurans, who are desperately trying to reach their parents in the US.; children like Jose, a ten-year old El Salvadoran, who has been abandoned by smugglers and ends up alone in a Mexican detention center; and Kevin, a canny, streetwise fourteen-year old Honduran, whose mother hopes that he will reach the U.S. and send money back to her. These are stories of hope and courage, disappointment and sorrow. They are the children you never hear about; the invisible ones.

La película sigue a varios niños migrantes no acompañados mientras viajan a través de México con destino a los EEUU en un tren de carga que llaman “La Bestia”.
La Directora Rebecca Cammisa (Sister Helen) muestra los testimonios de niños como Olga y Freddy, hondureños de nueve años quienes están desesperados tratando de encontrar a sus familias en Minnesota, y José, un salvadoreño de nueve años que ha sido abandonado por coyotes y se encuentra solo en un centro de detención mexicano, y se centra en Kevin, un joven hondureño listo y astuto de catorce años, cuya madre espera que llegue a Nueva York para poder enviar dinero a su familia. Estas son historias de esperanza y valor, decepción y pena.
Ellos son de los que nunca escuchas – los invisibles

From #Africa to #US-Mexico border

Sacan una visa para Cuba, vuelan a Ecuador porque no les pide visa, cruzan en autobús a Colombia, se adentran en lancha al istmo centroamericano, caminan por la selva hacia el norte, culminan en el desierto el tramo mexicano.

#Sednaya or #Saydnaya: Extermination, mass hangings, executions, torture prison and possibly a crematorium. #Syria

This is the place. And this is what  the Syrian regime prison looks like from the sky

(the picture is from US State Department and DigitalGlobe)

“Saydnaya Military Prison is a human slaughterhouse. The bodies of Saydnaya’s victims are taken away by the truckload. Many are hanged, secretly, in the middle of the night. Others die as a result of torture, and many are killed slowly through the systematic deprivation of food, water, medicine and medical care. It is inconceivable that this is not authorized by the highest levels of the Syrian political leadership”

The photo is by Helen Manson, and these are her words:

 Right now, in this very moment, even as you read these words, there’s a silent crisis unfolding in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Last year (on average) 30-50 people crossed the border each day. As of January, those numbers are closer to 500 per day. Medical Teams International are also there, right now, providing emergency and ongoing medical care to these precious people – now refugees.

#escape in a suitcase #children #ghouta #ceuta

The images of a child sleeping in a bag taken by the photographer Omar Sanadiki (Reuters) the 15th of March 2018 in the village of Beit Sawa tell the dramatic mass exodus from eastern Ghouta, Syria, due to heavy airstrikes conducted by Bashar al-Assad regime and his allies (Russia and Iran).

This picture brings back the 8th May 2015 when a boy was found through X-Ray scan hidden in a suitcase by Guardia Civil at El Tarajal (terrestrial point of entry at Spain’s border in Ceuta). So different, so similar.

Always in Ceuta another case has been reported the 30th December 2016

#Lybia #Italy #Hunger #2018

This is the authentic photo of Segen (Italian authorities registered his name as Tesfalidet Tesfon, label number 37, but he was known as Segen). The 22-year-old Eritrean who was among 91 migrants to arrive in the Sicilian port of Pozzallo on Monday on board a ship run by Spanish NGO Proactiva Open Arms has died due to the effects of hunger.

The man was in critical condition due to malnutrition and severe respiratory problems when he arrived in Italy. He was taken to Modica hospital but his condition deteriorated and he died.


The photographer is Kepa Fuentes

(Pozzallo, March 13, Ansa)

“Yesterday we witnessed a tragic landing, we saw an impressive situation of malnutrition not only in the boy who unfortunately died, but also in his fellow travelers. They were all skin and bones, they seemed to have come out of the Nazi concentration camps. Desperate people, malnourished: it was terrible. Fifty-eight of the migrants who arrived had cases of scabies and are already under treatment, but what really left us speechless were their physical condition: skeletons, men, women and children without a thread of fat, just a bunch of bones “.

The mayor of Pozzallo, Roberto Ammatuna

This picture has been widespread through social networks to comment the news of the dead for hunger of the 22-year-old Eritrean arrived in Italy but according to Fabrizio Gatti and his article, refers to a 14-years-old Eritrean kidnapped by Bedouin smugglers in Sudanand has been taken at Cairo in 2013.
