12 JUN: Miguel Duarte (activist), 7pm
Moderator: Vítor Belanciano
I first got involved in the so-called refugee crisis in 2016 when I joined the crew of the humanitarian vessel Iuventa in the Central Mediterranean. Since then, I have participated in several rescue and support missions to the communities in the refugee camps of Greece and Turkey. In 2018 I was accused in Italy on suspicion of aid to illegal immigration for helping to save lives. Today I belong to the HuBB – Humans Before Borders and Iuventa10 collectives with whom I develop awareness, lobbying and support for organizations working on the front line.
