The refugee crisis in Slovenia is also about Gorizia

The refugee crisis in Slovenia is also about Gorizia

Gorizia - In this last week, the situation of refugees in Slovenia became critical. This State is a stage of the travel of this poor persons, but it cannot support all them. For this reason, infact, the Slovenian government closed the boundaries with Croatia, sparking controversy between the two country.

Meanwhile, the number of refugees in Gorizia, in the border between Italy and Slovenia, increased. In only two days, at the beginning of November, 67 people arrive in the town: all of them are pakistani and afghans and there are not enough place where they can sleep. Most of them lives outdoor, in the parks or along the banks of Isonzo river.

The number of requests of international protection increased from the 2ndof November, said Anna Sammarro, representative of the Committee on integration of police headquarters in Gorizia, and in one day the requests were over 60: an high number for a smart city with 30 thousands of people. Most of this refugees arrives from Slovenia or Austria, after that the Austrian government has them sent back.

The most dangerous situation is about who lived near the Isonzo: some weeks ago, they were moved to a facility for asylum seekers not far from Gorizia because the water level had risen. But then they came back in this place and they created a tent city.

The hospitality system in Italy crashed this year, with 500 thousand of people arrived in Italy crossing the Mediterranean Sea and many more people crossing the Balkan Peninsula. Tamara Amodio, coordinator of the Italian Council for Refugees (CIR), defined the Friuli Venezia Giulia like “the Lampedusa of Northern Italy”.

According the data of Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia, in September Gorizia housed 525 refugees and all the region 2.508: in the future they will be 3.004. The situation needs a fast and effective solution, because most of this people are living outdoor and with the winter they could die of cold: it is a national emergency.
