• 1000 postes Fioraso. Mensonge !

    « Au cours de l’année universitaire 2016‐2017, 92 000 enseignants étaient en fonction dans les établissements publics d’#enseignement_supérieur ».

    Le tableau ci-dessus est extrait d’un note récente sur les personnels enseignants du SUP (référence en note finale). Nombre de professeurs en 2012 : 20 100, en 2017 : 20 300 ; 200 postes de plus en 5 ans. Nombre de maîtres de conférences en 2012 : 36 400, en 2017 : 36 400 ; 0 poste de plus.

    Entre 2012 et 2017, le nombre d’#enseignants-chercheurs n’a progressé que de 200, soit une progression ridicule par rapport à la progression du nombre d’étudiants. 200 postes en plus, on est loin des 1000 postes, annoncés et rabâchés par Geneviève Fioraso.

    2012-2017 : les universités ont pratiqué le #gel_de_postes dès qu’elles avaient des difficultés financières.

    Ce type de commentaire critique ne figure évidemment pas dans le texte de la note ministérielle. Les deux colonnes de droite du tableau insistent au contraire sur les progressions importantes des #effectifs en 20 ans et même en un an !

    Par définition, toute note ministérielle évite de traiter les #points_noirs.

    Un deuxième point qui pose problème (tableau ci-dessous) : c’est l’#âge auquel les #maîtres_de_conférences sont recrutés : 34 ans 9 mois en moyenne (32 ans 5 mois en sciences et techniques, 36 ans 10 mois en lettres et sciences humaines). Après l’obtention do doctorat : 7 à 10 ans de précarité pour obtenir un poste stable. On ne s’étonnera pas du nombre décroissant de doctorants et de docteurs.

    Troisième point faible : la précarité des doctorants et des jeunes docteurs s’accentue au cours de la période. « 22 315 enseignants sont des enseignants non permanents (hors chargés d’enseignement #vacataires, #agents_temporaires vacataires et invités) ». Parmi eux, la proportion d’#ATER diminue : le gel de postes a aussi concerné ces postes.

    « Parmi la population des enseignants non permanents, la catégorie des #doctorants_contractuels qui effectuent un service d’enseignement est la plus importante, soit 33 % en 2017… Au fil du temps, le nombre relatif de doctorants contractuels enseignants – ou #moniteurs – a augmenté (25% en 2000), principalement au détriment des attachés temporaires d’enseignement et de recherche (ATER), en particulier depuis le milieu des années 2000. En 2017, les ATER représentent 21 % des enseignants non permanents contre 32 % en 2005 ».

    Bref, sans mettre les points sur les « i », cette Note ministérielle révèle que le quinquennat Hollande, qui a mis en avant « 1000 postes supplémentaires pour l’enseignement supérieur », n’a pas tenu ses promesses. En termes plus clairs : la communication ministérielle a reposé sur un #mensonge permanent.

    • Entre les années 2004 et 2014, le nombre de ressortissants non tunisiens résidant en Tunisie a évolué de 66%, passant de 35192 à 53490 personnes. Cela exclut toutefois les plus de 10’000 migrants subsahariens en situation irrégulière qui vivraient dans le pays et pour lesquels aucune statistique fiable et à jour n’est disponible, révèle la source.
      En réponse au manque d’informations sur la migration de l’Afrique subsaharienne vers la Tunisie et ses dynamiques les plus récentes, REACH et Mercy Corps ont voulu creuser la question et ont collecté entre le 9 août et le 2 septembre 2018 des données auprès des trois principaux centres de migration en Tunisie pour les migrants subsahariens à savoir Tunis, Sfax et Medenine.

      Chiffres à retenir :
      – Plus de 83% d’entre eux ont prévu de se rendre vers la Tunisie dès leur départ
      – Environ 14% entre d’eux sont motivés par les facilités de #visas
      – 1/3 des migrants subsahariens considèrent la Tunisie comme étant un tremplin
      – 1/3 des travailleurs subsahariens estime trouver des #emplois plus attractifs que dans leur pays d’origine
      – Près de la moitié des #étudiants subsahariens estiment que l’#éducation est de qualité
      – Ils sont peu nombreux ceux qui ont l’intention de rejoindre l’Europe clandestinement
      – Plus de 90% des interrogés sont venus en Tunisie par avion
      – 50% ont décidé de résider sur le Grand #Tunis
      – 3/4 des migrants subsahariens ont des difficultés d’accès au #permis_de_séjour
      – La majorité des migrants subsahariens envisagent de rester en Tunisie

  • 56,800 migrant dead and missing : ’They are human beings’

    One by one, five to a grave, the coffins are buried in the red earth of this ill-kept corner of a South African cemetery. The scrawl on the cheap wood attests to their anonymity: “Unknown B/Male.”

    These men were migrants from elsewhere in Africa with next to nothing who sought a living in the thriving underground economy of Gauteng province, a name that roughly translates to “land of gold.” Instead of fortune, many found death, their bodies unnamed and unclaimed — more than 4,300 in Gauteng between 2014 and 2017 alone.

    Some of those lives ended here at the Olifantsvlei cemetery, in silence, among tufts of grass growing over tiny placards that read: Pauper Block. There are coffins so tiny that they could belong only to children.

    As migration worldwide soars to record highs, far less visible has been its toll: The tens of thousands of people who die or simply disappear during their journeys, never to be seen again. In most cases, nobody is keeping track: Barely counted in life, these people don’t register in death , as if they never lived at all.

    An Associated Press tally has documented at least 56,800 migrants dead or missing worldwide since 2014 — almost double the number found in the world’s only official attempt to try to count them, by the U.N.’s International Organization for Migration. The IOM toll as of Oct. 1 was more than 28,500. The AP came up with almost 28,300 additional dead or missing migrants by compiling information from other international groups, requesting forensic records, missing persons reports and death records, and sifting through data from thousands of interviews with migrants.

    The toll is the result of migration that is up 49 percent since the turn of the century, with more than 258 million international migrants in 2017, according to the United Nations. A growing number have drowned, died in deserts or fallen prey to traffickers, leaving their families to wonder what on earth happened to them. At the same time, anonymous bodies are filling cemeteries around the world, like the one in Gauteng.

    The AP’s tally is still low. More bodies of migrants lie undiscovered in desert sands or at the bottom of the sea. And families don’t always report loved ones as missing because they migrated illegally, or because they left home without saying exactly where they were headed.

    The official U.N. toll focuses mostly on Europe, but even there cases fall through the cracks. The political tide is turning against migrants in Europe just as in the United States, where the government is cracking down heavily on caravans of Central Americans trying to get in . One result is that money is drying up for projects to track migration and its costs.

    For example, when more than 800 people died in an April 2015 shipwreck off the coast of Italy, Europe’s deadliest migrant sea disaster, Italian investigators pledged to identify them and find their families. More than three years later, under a new populist government, funding for this work is being cut off.

    Beyond Europe, information is even more scarce. Little is known about the toll in South America, where the Venezuelan migration is among the world’s biggest today, and in Asia, the top region for numbers of migrants.

    The result is that governments vastly underestimate the toll of migration, a major political and social issue in most of the world today.

    “No matter where you stand on the whole migration management debate....these are still human beings on the move,” said Bram Frouws, the head of the Mixed Migration Centre , based in Geneva, which has done surveys of more than 20,000 migrants in its 4Mi project since 2014. “Whether it’s refugees or people moving for jobs, they are human beings.”

    They leave behind families caught between hope and mourning, like that of Safi al-Bahri. Her son, Majdi Barhoumi, left their hometown of Ras Jebel, Tunisia, on May 7, 2011, headed for Europe in a small boat with a dozen other migrants. The boat sank and Barhoumi hasn’t been heard from since. In a sign of faith that he is still alive, his parents built an animal pen with a brood of hens, a few cows and a dog to stand watch until he returns.

    “I just wait for him. I always imagine him behind me, at home, in the market, everywhere,” said al-Bahari. “When I hear a voice at night, I think he’s come back. When I hear the sound of a motorcycle, I think my son is back.”

    ———————————————————————

    EUROPE: BOATS THAT NEVER ARRIVE

    Of the world’s migration crises, Europe’s has been the most cruelly visible. Images of the lifeless body of a Kurdish toddler on a beach, frozen tent camps in Eastern Europe, and a nearly numbing succession of deadly shipwrecks have been transmitted around the world, adding to the furor over migration.

    In the Mediterranean, scores of tankers, cargo boats, cruise ships and military vessels tower over tiny, crowded rafts powered by an outboard motor for a one-way trip. Even larger boats carrying hundreds of migrants may go down when soft breezes turn into battering winds and thrashing waves further from shore.

    Two shipwrecks and the deaths of at least 368 people off the coast of Italy in October 2013 prompted the IOM’s research into migrant deaths. The organization has focused on deaths in the Mediterranean, although its researchers plead for more data from elsewhere in the world. This year alone, the IOM has found more than 1,700 deaths in the waters that divide Africa and Europe.

    Like the lost Tunisians of Ras Jebel, most of them set off to look for work. Barhoumi, his friends, cousins and other would-be migrants camped in the seaside brush the night before their departure, listening to the crash of the waves that ultimately would sink their raft.

    Khalid Arfaoui had planned to be among them. When the group knocked at his door, it wasn’t fear that held him back, but a lack of cash. Everyone needed to chip in to pay for the boat, gas and supplies, and he was short about $100. So he sat inside and watched as they left for the beachside campsite where even today locals spend the night before embarking to Europe.

    Propelled by a feeble outboard motor and overburdened with its passengers, the rubber raft flipped, possibly after grazing rocks below the surface on an uninhabited island just offshore. Two bodies were retrieved. The lone survivor was found clinging to debris eight hours later.

    The Tunisian government has never tallied its missing, and the group never made it close enough to Europe to catch the attention of authorities there. So these migrants never have been counted among the dead and missing.

    “If I had gone with them, I’d be lost like the others,” Arfaoui said recently, standing on the rocky shoreline with a group of friends, all of whom vaguely planned to leave for Europe. “If I get the chance, I’ll do it. Even if I fear the sea and I know I might die, I’ll do it.”

    With him that day was 30-year-old Mounir Aguida, who had already made the trip once, drifting for 19 hours after the boat engine cut out. In late August this year, he crammed into another raft with seven friends, feeling the waves slam the flimsy bow. At the last minute he and another young man jumped out.

    “It didn’t feel right,” Aguida said.

    There has been no word from the other six — yet another group of Ras Jebel’s youth lost to the sea. With no shipwreck reported, no survivors to rescue and no bodies to identify, the six young men are not counted in any toll.

    In addition to watching its own youth flee, Tunisia and to a lesser degree neighboring Algeria are transit points for other Africans north bound for Europe. Tunisia has its own cemetery for unidentified migrants, as do Greece, Italy and Turkey. The one at Tunisia’s southern coast is tended by an unemployed sailor named Chamseddin Marzouk.

    Of around 400 bodies interred in the coastal graveyard since it opened in 2005, only one has ever been identified. As for the others who lie beneath piles of dirt, Marzouk couldn’t imagine how their families would ever learn their fate.

    “Their families may think that the person is still alive, or that he’ll return one day to visit,” Marzouk said. “They don’t know that those they await are buried here, in Zarzis, Tunisia.”

    AFRICA: VANISHING WITHOUT A TRACE

    Despite talk of the ’waves’ of African migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean, as many migrate within Africa — 16 million — as leave for Europe. In all, since 2014, at least 18,400 African migrants have died traveling within Africa, according to the figures compiled from AP and IOM records. That includes more than 4,300 unidentified bodies in a single South African province, and 8,700 whose traveling companions reported their disappearance en route out of the Horn of Africa in interviews with 4Mi.

    When people vanish while migrating in Africa, it is often without a trace. The IOM says the Sahara Desert may well have killed more migrants than the Mediterranean. But no one will ever know for sure in a region where borders are little more than lines drawn on maps and no government is searching an expanse as large as the continental United States. The harsh sun and swirling desert sands quickly decompose and bury bodies of migrants, so that even when they turn up, they are usually impossible to identify .

    With a prosperous economy and stable government, South Africa draws more migrants than any other country in Africa. The government is a meticulous collector of fingerprints — nearly every legal resident and citizen has a file somewhere — so bodies without any records are assumed to have been living and working in the country illegally. The corpses are fingerprinted when possible, but there is no regular DNA collection.

    South Africa also has one of the world’s highest rates of violent crime and police are more focused on solving domestic cases than identifying migrants.

    “There’s logic to that, as sad as it is....You want to find the killer if you’re a policeman, because the killer could kill more people,” said Jeanine Vellema, the chief specialist of the province’s eight mortuaries. Migrant identification, meanwhile, is largely an issue for foreign families — and poor ones at that.

    Vellema has tried to patch into the police missing persons system, to build a system of electronic mortuary records and to establish a protocol where a DNA sample is taken from every set of remains that arrive at the morgue. She sighs: “Resources.” It’s a word that comes up 10 times in a half-hour conversation.

    So the bodies end up at Olifantsvlei or a cemetery like it, in unnamed graves. On a recent visit by AP, a series of open rectangles awaited the bodies of the unidentified and unclaimed. They did not wait long: a pickup truck drove up, piled with about 10 coffins, five per grave. There were at least 180 grave markers for the anonymous dead, with multiple bodies in each grave.

    The International Committee of the Red Cross, which is working with Vellema, has started a pilot project with one Gauteng morgue to take detailed photos, fingerprints, dental information and DNA samples of unidentified bodies. That information goes to a database where, in theory, the bodies can be traced.

    “Every person has a right to their dignity. And to their identity,” said Stephen Fonseca, the ICRC regional forensic manager.

    ————————————

    THE UNITED STATES: “THAT’S HOW MY BROTHER USED TO SLEEP”

    More than 6,000 miles (9,000 kilometers) away, in the deserts that straddle the U.S.-Mexico border, lie the bodies of migrants who perished trying to cross land as unforgiving as the waters of the Mediterranean. Many fled the violence and poverty of Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador or Mexico. Some are found months or years later as mere skeletons. Others make a last, desperate phone call and are never heard from again.

    In 2010 the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team and the local morgue in Pima County, Ariz., began to organize efforts to put names to the anonymous bodies found on both sides of the border. The “Border Project” has since identified more than 183 people — a fraction of the total.

    At least 3,861 migrants are dead and missing on the route from Mexico to the United States since 2014, according to the combined AP and IOM total. The tally includes missing person reports from the Colibri Center for Human Rights on the U.S. side as well as the Argentine group’s data from the Mexican side. The painstaking work of identification can take years, hampered by a lack of resources, official records and coordination between countries — and even between states.

    For many families of the missing, it is their only hope, but for the families of Juan Lorenzo Luna and Armando Reyes, that hope is fading.

    Luna, 27, and Reyes, 22, were brothers-in-law who left their small northern Mexico town of Gomez Palacio in August 2016. They had tried to cross to the U.S. four months earlier, but surrendered to border patrol agents in exhaustion and were deported.

    They knew they were risking their lives — Reyes’ father died migrating in 1995, and an uncle went missing in 2004. But Luna, a quiet family man, wanted to make enough money to buy a pickup truck and then return to his wife and two children. Reyes wanted a job where he wouldn’t get his shoes dirty and could give his newborn daughter a better life.

    Of the five who left Gomez Palacio together, two men made it to safety, and one man turned back. The only information he gave was that the brothers-in-law had stopped walking and planned to turn themselves in again. That is the last that is known of them.

    Officials told their families that they had scoured prisons and detention centers, but there was no sign of the missing men. Cesaria Orona even consulted a fortune teller about her missing son, Armando, and was told he had died in the desert.

    One weekend in June 2017, volunteers found eight bodies next to a military area of the Arizona desert and posted the images online in the hopes of finding family. Maria Elena Luna came across a Facebook photo of a decaying body found in an arid landscape dotted with cactus and shrubs, lying face-up with one leg bent outward. There was something horribly familiar about the pose.

    “That’s how my brother used to sleep,” she whispered.

    Along with the bodies, the volunteers found a credential of a boy from Guatemala, a photo and a piece of paper with a number written on it. The photo was of Juan Lorenzo Luna, and the number on the paper was for cousins of the family. But investigators warned that a wallet or credential could have been stolen, as migrants are frequently robbed.

    “We all cried,” Luna recalled. “But I said, we cannot be sure until we have the DNA test. Let’s wait.”

    Luna and Orona gave DNA samples to the Mexican government and the Argentine group. In November 2017, Orona received a letter from the Mexican government saying that there was the possibility of a match for Armando with some bone remains found in Nuevo Leon, a state that borders Texas. But the test was negative.

    The women are still waiting for results from the Argentine pathologists. Until then, their relatives remain among the uncounted.

    Orona holds out hope that the men may be locked up, or held by “bad people.” Every time Luna hears about clandestine graves or unidentified bodies in the news, the anguish is sharp.

    “Suddenly all the memories come back,” she said. “I do not want to think.”

    SOUTH AMERICA: “NO ONE WANTS TO ADMIT THIS IS A REALITY”

    The toll of the dead and the missing has been all but ignored in one of the largest population movements in the world today — that of nearly 2 million Venezuelans fleeing from their country’s collapse. These migrants have hopped buses across the borders, boarded flimsy boats in the Caribbean, and — when all else failed — walked for days along scorching highways and freezing mountain trails. Vulnerable to violence from drug cartels, hunger and illness that lingers even after reaching their destination, they have disappeared or died by the hundreds.

    “They can’t withstand a trip that hard, because the journey is very long,” said Carlos Valdes, director of neighboring Colombia’s national forensic institute. “And many times, they only eat once a day. They don’t eat. And they die.” Valdes said authorities don’t always recover the bodies of those who die, as some migrants who have entered the country illegally are afraid to seek help.

    Valdes believes hypothermia has killed some as they trek through the mountain tundra region, but he had no idea how many. One migrant told the AP he saw a family burying someone wrapped in a white blanket with red flowers along the frigid journey.

    Marta Duque, 55, has had a front seat to the Venezuela migration crisis from her home in Pamplona, Colombia. She opens her doors nightly to provide shelter for families with young children. Pamplona is one of the last cities migrants reach before venturing up a frigid mountain paramo, one of the most dangerous parts of the trip for migrants traveling by foot. Temperatures dip well below freezing.

    She said inaction from authorities has forced citizens like her to step in.

    “Everyone just seems to pass the ball,” she said. “No one wants to admit this is a reality.”

    Those deaths are uncounted, as are dozens in the sea. Also uncounted are those reported missing in Colombia, Peru and Ecuador. In all at least 3,410 Venezuelans have been reported missing or dead in a migration within Latin America whose dangers have gone relatively unnoticed; many of the dead perished from illnesses on the rise in Venezuela that easily would have found treatment in better times.

    Among the missing is Randy Javier Gutierrez, who was walking through Colombia with a cousin and his aunt in hopes of reaching Peru to reunite with his mother.

    Gutierrez’s mother, Mariela Gamboa, said that a driver offered a ride to the two women, but refused to take her son. The women agreed to wait for him at the bus station in Cali, about 160 miles (257 kilometers) ahead, but he never arrived. Messages sent to his phone since that day four months ago have gone unread.

    “I’m very worried,” his mother said. “I don’t even know what to do.”

    ———————————

    ASIA: A VAST UNKNOWN

    The region with the largest overall migration, Asia, also has the least information on the fate of those who disappear after leaving their homelands. Governments are unwilling or unable to account for citizens who leave for elsewhere in the region or in the Mideast, two of the most common destinations, although there’s a growing push to do so.

    Asians make up 40 percent of the world’s migrants, and more than half of them never leave the region. The Associated Press was able to document more than 8,200 migrants who disappeared or died after leaving home in Asia and the Mideast, including thousands in the Philippines and Indonesia.

    Thirteen of the top 20 migration pathways from Asia take place within the region. These include Indian workers heading to the United Arab Emirates, Bangladeshis heading to India, Rohingya Muslims escaping persecution in Myanmar, and Afghans crossing the nearest border to escape war. But with large-scale smuggling and trafficking of labor, and violent displacements, the low numbers of dead and missing indicate not safe travel but rather a vast unknown.

    Almass was just 14 when his widowed mother reluctantly sent him and his 11-year-old brother from their home in Khost, Afghanistan, into that unknown. The payment for their trip was supposed to get them away from the Taliban and all the way to Germany via a chain of smugglers. The pair crammed first into a pickup with around 40 people, walked for a few days at the border, crammed into a car, waited a bit in Tehran, and walked a few more days.

    His brother Murtaza was exhausted by the time they reached the Iran-Turkey border. But the smuggler said it wasn’t the time to rest — there were at least two border posts nearby and the risk that children far younger travelling with them would make noise.

    Almass was carrying a baby in his arms and holding his brother’s hand when they heard the shout of Iranian guards. Bullets whistled past as he tumbled head over heels into a ravine and lost consciousness.

    Alone all that day and the next, Almass stumbled upon three other boys in the ravine who had also become separated from the group, then another four. No one had seen his brother. And although the younger boy had his ID, it had been up to Almass to memorize the crucial contact information for the smuggler.

    When Almass eventually called home, from Turkey, he couldn’t bear to tell his mother what had happened. He said Murtaza couldn’t come to the phone but sent his love.

    That was in early 2014. Almass, who is now 18, hasn’t spoken to his family since.

    Almass said he searched for his brother among the 2,773 children reported to the Red Cross as missing en route to Europe. He also looked for himself among the 2,097 adults reported missing by children. They weren’t on the list.

    With one of the world’s longest-running exoduses, Afghans face particular dangers in bordering countries that are neither safe nor welcoming. Over a period of 10 months from June 2017 to April 2018, 4Mi carried out a total of 962 interviews with Afghan migrants and refugees in their native languages around the world, systematically asking a series of questions about the specific dangers they had faced and what they had witnessed.

    A total of 247 migrant deaths were witnessed by the interviewed migrants, who reported seeing people killed in violence from security forces or starving to death. The effort is the first time any organization has successfully captured the perils facing Afghans in transit to destinations in Asia and Europe.

    Almass made it from Asia to Europe and speaks halting French now to the woman who has given him a home in a drafty 400-year-old farmhouse in France’s Limousin region. But his family is lost to him. Their phone number in Afghanistan no longer works, their village is overrun with Taliban, and he has no idea how to find them — or the child whose hand slipped from his grasp four years ago.

    “I don’t know now where they are,” he said, his face anguished, as he sat on a sun-dappled bench. “They also don’t know where I am.”

  • 5200 troops. 23 apprehensions. In. ONE. Year.

    In fiscal 2018, the average Border Patrol agent apprehended 23 migrants. All year.

    9 of them would’ve been kids and family members, leaving 14 single adults, all year. One per agent, every 26 days.

    And now, at great expense, 5,200 active-duty soldiers are headed to the border.

    75% less migrants since 2000. Nearly 5X more Border Patrol agents since 1992. The buildup has happened already, and the migrant flow has ebbed. Adding soldiers is unnecessary.

  • Austria Immigration Detention

    Austria has sharply increased the number of people it places in immigration detention after years of declining detainee populations. While it continues the controversial practice of placing immigration detainees in “Police Detention Centres,” the country opened a new dedicated immigration detention centre in 2014, which is partly operated by the multinational security company #G4S. The country has also announced plans to significantly boost removals, focusing mainly on people from the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa.

    Population Movements
    As of 11 October, the Libyan Coast Guard (LCG) rescued/intercepted 14,156 refugees and migrants (9,801 men, 2,126 women and 1,373 children) at sea during 108 operations. So far in 2018, the LCG recovered 99 bodies from the sea. The number of individualsdis embarked in Libya has gradually increased over the past weeks when compared to the month of August (552 individuals in August, 1,265 individuals in September and 884 individuals so far in October). An increase in disembarkations may be expected as the sea iscurrently very calm.
    During the reporting period, 174 refugees and migrants (163 men, eight women and three children) disembarked in #Alkhums (97 km southwest of Tripoli) and #Zawia (45 km west of Tripoli). The group was comprised mainly of Bangladeshi and Sudanese nationals. UNHCR and its partner International Medical Corps (IMC) provided core-relief items (CRIs) and vital medical assistance both at the disembarkation points and in the detention centres to which individuals were subsequently transferred by the authorities. So far in 2018, UNHCR has registered 11,401 refugees and asylum-seekers, bringing the total of individuals registered to 56,045.

    UNHCR Response
    On 9 October, #UNHCR in coordination with the municipality of Benghazi, distributed water tanks, medical waste disposal bins and wheel chairs to 14 hospitals and clinics in Benghazi. This was part of UNHCR’s quick-impact projects (#QIPs). QIPs are small, rapidly implemented projects intended to help create conditions for peaceful coexistence between displaced persons and their hosting communities. QIPs also strengthen the resilience of these communities. So far in 2018, UNHCR implemented 83 QIPs across Libya.
    On 8 October, UNHC partner #CESVI began a three-day school bag distribution campaign at its social centre in Tripoli. The aim is to reach 1,000 children with bags in preparation for the new school year. Due to the liquidity crisis in Libya, the price of school materials has increased over the past years. With this distribution, UNHCR hopes to mitigate the financial impact that the start of the school year has on refugee families.
    UNHCR estimates that 5,893 individuals are detained in Libya, of whom 3,964 are of concern to UNHCR. On 7 October, UNHCR visited #Abu-Slim detention centre to deliver humanitarian assistance and address the concerns of refugees and asylum-seekers held in the facility. UNHCR distributed non-food items including blankets, hygiene kits, dignity kits, sleeping mats and water to all detained individuals. UNHCR carried out a Q&A session with refugees and migrants to discuss UNHCR’s activities and possible solutions for persons of concern. Security permitting, UNHCR will resume its registration activities in detention centres over the coming days, targeting all persons of concern.
    So far in 2018, UNHCR conducted 982 visits to detention centres and registered 3,600 refugees and asylum-seekers. As of 10 October, UNHCR distributed 15,282 core-relief items to refugees and migrants held in detention centres in Libya.
    Throughits partner #IMC, UNHCR continues to provide medical assistance in detention centres in Libya. So far in 2018, IMC provided 21,548 primary health care consultations at the detention centres and 231 medical referrals to public hospitals. As conditions in detention remain extremely dire, UNHCR continues to advocate for alternatives to detention in Libya and for solutions in third countries. Since 1 September 2017, 901 individuals have been submitted for resettlement to eight States (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland).

  • Lo scandalo del bio: copre il 15% dei terreni ma prende solo il 3% degli aiuti

    L’Italia applica la #PAC in modo paradossale: si finanzia più l’acquisto di diserbanti e pesticidi nell’agricoltura convenzionale che chi sceglie di puntare sul biologico.

    Il biologico cresce a due cifre ed è considerato un’arma utile anche contro i cambiamenti climatici. Ma le politiche di sostegno all’agricoltura – declinazioni nazionali delle politiche europee – investono direttamente sul bio italiano molto meno di quanto il settore meriterebbe. Questa la denuncia contenuta nell’ultimo rapporto di FederBio (Cambia la terra 2018): i fondi pubblici mirati al biologico sono inferiori al 3% del totale. Eppure, la Superficie agricola (Sau) coltivata dall’agricoltura biologica è di poco inferiore al 15%.

    Una sperequazione nell’attribuzione degli aiuti sancita dai meccanismi di attuazione italiana della Pac (Politica agricola comunitaria) per il periodo 2014-2020. Tanto più criticabile se si pensa che il il biologico contribuisce a ridurre i costi ambientali e sanitari collettivi, favorendo la tutela del paesaggio e il calo dell’inquinamento da fitofarmaci (ovvero erbicidi e pesticidi). E che la scelta del biologico comporta, per chi la fa, maggiori incombenze burocratiche ed economiche, che colpiscono non solo le aziende che stanno “transitando” da coltivazioni non certificate ma anche la pratica quotidiana.

    Al biologico solo le briciole dal Primo Pilastro della Pac

    Secondo i dati del Servizio Studi della Camera, i finanziamenti della Pac 2014-2020 all’agricoltura italiana sono pari a 62,5 miliardi:

    41,5 miliardi di euro dell’Unione europea
    21 miliardi che arrivano dallo Stato nazionale.

    Il 75% dei finanziamenti è destinato al cosiddetto Primo Pilastro e all’Organizzazione comune di mercato, mentre mediamente il 25% è destinato al Secondo Pilastro, che sono i Programmi di sviluppo rurale delle Regioni.

    Sul primo Pilastro della Pac, i finanziamenti destinati specificatamente al biologico praticamente non esistono. Il biologico beneficia del cosiddetto greening, che di fatto è solo una maggiorazione del 30% dell’aiuto di base.

    «Ma il greening, in funzione delle esenzioni previste dalle norme, viene applicato nel nostro Paese solo al 12% delle aziende. E, oltre al biologico, ne beneficia anche chi fa avvicendamento colturale, i pascoli o le zone rifugio per la fauna. Così, alla fine, l’aiuto destinato specificatamente al bio è veramente irrilevante», spiega Maria Grazia Mammuccini di FederBio.

    Un quadro che appare a tutto vantaggio dell’agricoltura convenzionale, che utilizza pesticidi, diserbanti e fertilizzanti di sintesi. Ovvero chi adempie al PAN (Piano Nazionale per l’uso sostenibile dei prodotti fitosanitari) secondo lo standard minimo – e obbligatorio – che consente l’accesso ai pagamenti diretti del Primo Pilastro.

    Psr, premiato chi usa i pesticidi. Glifosato incluso

    Al biologico, va meglio quando si analizza il finanziamento specifico che giunge dai Programmi di sviluppo rurale (Psr) del Secondo Pilastro della Pac. E in questo caso a decidere – in modo assolutamente disomogeneo – sono le regioni italiane.

    Attraverso i bandi della cosiddetta Misura 11, dedicata proprio all’agricoltura biologica, al bio arrivano la maggior parte dei finanziamenti. Ma la misura rimane comunque minore rispetto a quanto, grazie alla Misura 10, ricevono altre pratiche. Innanzitutto il cosiddetto “integrato volontario“, modello di agricoltura che rispetta un disciplinare con pratiche agronomiche specifiche, e vieta l’uso di alcuni principi attivi tra i più dannosi. E poi l’agricoltura conservativa.
    A sostenere fortemente il biologico, con alte percentuali della spesa complessiva nei Psr, sono le regioni del Centro e Sud Italia (in Sicilia il 18,07%, in Calabria il 22,38%). Uniche eccezioni l’Umbria (3,88%) e la Campania (1,36%). Altre, come Valle d’Aosta (1,7%), Veneto (1,84%), Friuli Venezia Giulia 2,36% perseguono obbiettivi opposti.

    Complessivamente – secondo Cambia la terra – alla Misura 10 viene destinato il 13% dei fondi per lo sviluppo rurale nazionale, mentre alla Misura 11 il 9,5%. Evidenziando quello che appare come un paradosso. La Misura 10, infatti, è specificamente indirizzata al rispetto dell’ambiente. «Premia pratiche agronomiche migliori rispetto al convenzionale, ma che comunque fanno uso di fertilizzanti e pesticidi di sintesi chimica, compreso il glifosato» spiega Mammuccini. E così, una norma pensata per aiutare l’ambiente finisce per finanziare chi usa «il maggior inquinante delle nostre acque (dati ISPRA) e classificato come probabile cancerogeno». L’unica regione italiana che ha deciso di interrompere i finanziamenti risulta essere la Calabria mentre infuria la polemica sugli annunci della Toscana.
    Vizioli: troppa burocrazia. Ancora non spesi più del 50% dei fondi

    Detto ciò, siamo in attesa di vedere se con la Pac 2021-2027 l’Europa, sempre più colpita dal riscaldamento globale, punterà maggiormente sul bio. Ma riguardo la programmazione 2014-2020, alle lamentazioni di FederBio si unisce, su altri fronti, la bocciatura del presidente di Aiab (Associazione italiana per l’agricoltura biologica).

    «Tranne qualche raro caso – afferma Vincenzo Vizioli – tutte le regioni italiane hanno investito sul bio una percentuale del budget inferiore alla Sau impegnata a biologico. Non hanno considerato che la domanda di cibo bio stava stimolando un’esplosione del settore. E quindi non hanno previsto un un aumento delle richieste di finanziamento. In questo modo, tutto il sistema è andato in difficoltà. Non solo: il ritardo dei pagamenti, dovuto al cronico e inaccettabile malfunzionamento di Agea (Agenzia per le Erogazioni in Agricoltura), e l’appesantimento burocratico per la gestione delle domande, la rendicontazione dei progetti e la lentezza delle istruttorie regionali hanno esaltato le difficoltà».

    Un errore di programmazione incomprensibile. Che, secondo Vizioli, sta in qualche modo “imballando il sistema”: benché la Misura 11 valga l’8,7% dei 20,9 miliardi di euro programmati per i Psr, ad oggi ne ha ricevuto meno di uno. E di quanto disponibile è stato speso solo il 17,6%.

    «Non solo è stata sbagliata la programmazione, ma le tante difficoltà di tipo burocratico stanno portando al problema di non riuscire a spendere tutti i fondi disponibili. Mancano meno di 2 anni alla fine e noi non abbiamo ancora speso neanche la metà dei fondi».

    E così, oltre al danno, si aggiungerebbe anche la beffa. Senza contare che l’agricoltura integrata beneficiaria della Misura 10, sottolinea Vizioli, riceve denaro pubblico ma non è né certificata come il bio nè fatta oggetto di controlli adeguati. Poiché la verifica dei documenti d’acquisto e di uso dei fitofarmaci, ad esempio, non si accompagna con dei rilievi sul campo.

    • Così l’agricoltura convenzionale inquina l’economia (oltre che il Pianeta)

      Il modello della rivoluzione verde (industrializzazione dell’agricoltura più chimica di sintesi) può considerarsi esaurito a causa dell’enorme impatto ambientale prodotto dall’uso massiccio di fertilizzanti chimici e pesticidi che ha contribuito al deterioramento della terra, alla contaminazione dell’acqua e alla perdita di biodiversità senza riuscire a garantire un reddito adeguato agli agricoltori. Così la Fao, durante l’incontro internazionale sull’agroecologia dell’aprile 2018, ha sintetizzato oltre mezzo secolo di studi scientifici sull’impatto dell’agricoltura intensiva basata su un largo uso di pesticidi.

      Come è arrivata un’organizzazione delle Nazioni Unite a un pronunciamento così netto? Questo rapporto mette assieme i tasselli che aiutano a capire. A confutare il mito di quella che è stata paradossalmente chiamata la “rivoluzione verde” – pur avendo dato un contributo importante alla perdita di biodiversità e all’aggravarsi della minaccia climatica – non c’è infatti un solo elemento, ma il riconoscimento di una serie di errori ambientali, sanitari, sociali ed economici.

      Nel primo Rapporto “Cambia la terra. Così l’agricoltura convenzionale inquina l’economia (oltre che il Pianeta)” sono citati gli autori e gli studi che hanno permesso alla comunità scientifica di raddrizzare la rotta, indicando la strada per recuperare il terreno perduto. È un filo logico che rappresenta una mappa capace di aiutare il legislatore a riorientare l’azione pubblica verso il bene comune. E che ha una forte attualità: oggi è in discussione la possibilità di cambiare la destinazione di una significativa quota di risorse pubbliche che finora è servita a sostenere scelte ad alto impatto ambientale e sanitario e che può essere reindirizzata per sostenere un modello agricolo più sicuro, più sano e più equo. Ma qual è il danno economico complessivo prodotto dall’uso dei pesticidi? Un primo studio sul tema condotto da Pimentel e altri nel 1992, mettendo nel conto alcune esternalità negative, arrivava alla cifra di 8,1 miliardi di dollari l’anno negli USA. Considerando che all’epoca l’acquisto di pesticidi ammontava a una spesa di 4 miliardi, ne deriva che le esternalità negative a carico della collettività erano pari al doppio: per 1 dollaro speso in pesticidi se ne spendevano 2 per le conseguenze prodotte dal loro uso. La ricerca è stata aggiornata in uno studio successivo pubblicato nel 2005 arrivando a valutare i costi derivati dall’uso dei pesticidi – spese sanitarie, perdita di produttività, perdita di biodiversità, costi per il disinquinamento del suolo e delle acque – in circa 10 miliardi di dollari l’anno nei soli Stati Uniti.

      L’Italia si trova purtroppo esposta in prima linea nella battaglia contro questo rischio chimico: il nostro Paese è fra i maggiori consumatori di pesticidi a livello europeo. Dall’ultimo Report dell’Agenzia europea per l’ambiente risulta infatti che il consumo di principio attivo nella UE è mediamente di 3,8 chili per ettaro: in Italia invece si arriva a 5,7 chili per ettaro, e in 10 anni – dal 2006 al 2016 – si è registrato un aumento della spesa per i pesticidi attualizzata ai prezzi correnti pari al 50% (quella per i concimi è cresciuta del 35%).

      Inoltre l’agricoltura intensiva, la monocoltura, l’uso di diserbanti e concimi chimici di sintesi sono tra gli elementi che più impoveriscono il terreno, riducendo la materia organica e la concentrazione di microrganismi e quindi la fertilità. Un dato inquietante perché ci vogliono migliaia di anni per creare pochi centimetri di terreno fertile, ma bastano pochi decenni per distruggerlo. E in Italia l’erosione – che comporta costi legati all’aumento del rischio di inondazioni e frane, all’abbandono delle terre e alla distruzione di infrastrutture – interessa ormai un terzo della superficie agricola del Paese generando una perdita annuale di produttività pari a 619 milioni di euro.

      Infine c’è da tener presente l’impatto sul clima dell’agricoltura ad alto uso di chimica di sintesi e di combustibili fossili. L’IPCC, la task force di climatologi organizzata dall’Onu, ritiene che siano proprio il modello agricolo e alimentare oggi imperante e l’uso attuale di suolo e foreste a essere responsabili per il 24% del rilascio dei gas climalteranti. Una conseguenza che potrebbe essere evitata scegliendo la strada dell’agroecologia: secondo i dati pubblicati dal Rodale Institute nel 2011, i sistemi di agricoltura biologica utilizzano il 45% in meno di energia rispetto a quelli convenzionali e producono il 40% in meno di gas serra rispetto all’agricoltura basata su metodi convenzionali. In questo modo l’agricoltura si potrebbe trasformare da problema in soluzione: i terreni organici svolgono un ruolo di assorbimento del carbonio che può arrivare a circa mezza tonnellata di carbonio per ettaro l’anno. Il potenziale tecnico del sequestro di carbonio nei terreni degli ecosistemi agricoli globali è compreso tra 1,2 e 3,1 miliardi di tonnellate di carbonio all’anno (da 10 a 27 volte le emissioni italiane di CO2 equivalente del 2016).

      I numeri vengono dall’Ufficio studi della Camera dei deputati: su 41,5 miliardi di euro destinati all’Italia, all’agricoltura biologica vanno appena 963 milioni di euro. In altri termini, il bio – che rappresenta il 14,5% della superficie agricola utilizzabile – riceve il 2,3% delle risorse europee: anche solo in termini puramente aritmetici, senza calcolare il contributo del biologico alla difesa dell’ambiente e della salute, circa sei volte meno di quanto che gli spetterebbe. Se ai dati dei fondi europei si aggiunge il cofinanziamento nazionale per l’agricoltura, pari a circa 21 miliardi, il risultato rimane praticamente invariato: su un totale di fondi europei e italiani di circa 62,5 miliardi, la parte che va al biologico è di 1,8 miliardi, il 2,9% delle risorse.

      Invece di un premio c’è dunque una penalizzazione netta. Nel capitolo di spesa destinato specificamente all’interno dei PSR (Piani di sviluppo regionale) alla vera e propria lotta al cambiamento climatico, solo il 9,5% delle risorse pubbliche va all’agricoltura biologica. Altro tipo di sistemi (ad esempio l’agricoltura integrata, che usa teoricamente meno pesticidi sul campo; o l’agricoltura conservativa, una pratica in cui si evita di dissodare i terreni ma si utilizza ampiamente il glifosato) ricevono maggiori risorse (13%).

      In altre parole, gli italiani e gli europei in generale pagano per sostenere pratiche agricole che alla fine si ritorcono contro l’ambiente e contro la loro salute, a partire da quella degli agricoltori stessi. In questo contesto anche l’onere della prova viene rovesciato. Non è il modello agricolo ad alto impatto ambientale a farsi carico della tutela degli ecosistemi con cui interagisce, ma sono gli operatori del biologico a sopportare i costi prodotti dall’inquinamento causato dalla chimica di sintesi: il costo della certificazione; il costo della burocrazia (ancora più alta che per gli agricoltori convenzionali); il costo della maggiore quantità di lavoro necessaria a produrre in maniera efficace, senza ricorso a concimi di sintesi e diserbanti, e a proteggere il raccolto dai parassiti senza l’uso dei pesticidi di sintesi chimica; il costo della fascia di rispetto tra campi convenzionali e campi biologici.

      Occorre anche intervenire subito, fornendo strumenti e opportunità a chi sceglie l’agricoltura pulita e non – come succede oggi – penalizzando chi non inquina, in contrasto con i principi fondanti delle politiche ambientali italiane, europee e internazionali. “Cambia la Terra”, attraverso il Rapporto 2018, intende avanzare delle proposte concrete alla politica.

    • Nell’ex fabbrica di penicillina, un #ghetto di Roma

      Oggi viene presentata la seconda edizione di “Fuori campo”, il rapporto di Medici Senza Frontiere sulla marginalità, secondo il quale “sono almeno 10.000 le persone escluse dall’accoglienza, tra richiedenti e titolari di protezione internazionale e umanitaria, con limitato o nessun accesso ai beni essenziali e alle cure mediche”. Una cinquantina gli insediamenti mappati dall’organizzazione in tutta Italia, 3500 le persone che vivono in occupazioni, baracche e “ghetti” nella sola Roma. Open Migration è entrata dentro il “gran ghetto” della capitale: un’ex fabbrica di penicillina in cui le condizioni di vita sono estreme.

      Appena finisce di spaccare le cassette della frutta e il legname di recupero, Alecu Romel entra nella casa in cui vive con la moglie Maria. Nella stanza d’ingresso, una luce fioca illumina il fornello, collegato ad una bombola a gas. A destra, in un locale spoglio, la coppia tiene una bicicletta e dei passeggini, riadattati per raccogliere ferrivecchi e oggetti abbandonati per strada. Sulla sinistra, una porta rossa separa dalla zona notte: una camera con due letti, la televisione e stampe colorate appese alle pareti.

      “Viviamo in questo appartamento da cinque anni e cerchiamo di tenerlo sempre in ordine”, dice Maria. A cedere loro lo spazio, un altro cittadino della Romania, che dentro la Ex-Penicillina, una delle più grandi aree industriali dismesse di Roma, si era inventato un angolo di intimità arredando alcuni dei locali più piccoli, che un tempo erano probabilmente uffici. In cinque anni di vita fra i capannoni scrostati, Alecu e Maria hanno visto cambiare l’insediamento. “Prima eravamo più rumeni e ci sono state anche famiglie italiane”, continua la donna, “mentre adesso gli abitanti sono cresciuti, e quasi tutti sono africani”.

      Oggi, come allora, il sogno di ricongiungersi con i due figli, affidati ai nonni in Romania, appare lontano: “questo non è un posto per bambini, ci sono topi e sporcizia, non ci si sente sicuri, ma almeno quei pochi soldi che guadagnamo ci permettono di mantenerli a casa, di fargli fare una vita migliore della nostra”, conclude Maria, la voce rassegnata.
      Fra i capannoni del “grande ghetto”

      Sempre più sogni si infrangono dietro la facciata del complesso, che costeggia via Tiburtina, una delle arterie più trafficate della città. Qui i cantieri per il raddoppio della carreggiata vanno avanti da anni: “finite ‘sti lavori!! più che una consolare sembra una via Crucis” è l’urlo che i cittadini hanno affidato ai cartelli affissi sui muri. Siamo all’altezza della periferia operaia di San Basilio, oggi nota alle cronache anche come base per lo spaccio di stupefacenti.

      Rifugiati e richiedenti asilo, arrivati in Italia negli ultimi anni e usciti dal sistema d’accoglienza, hanno infatti trovato qui un riparo precario, aprendo un nuovo capitolo nella storia del complesso, un tempo orgoglio dell’industria italiana. Aperta come Leo – Industrie Chimiche Farmaceutiche Roma, la Ex-Penicillina è stata la prima fabbrica italiana a produrre antibiotici. Una storia complessa, intrecciata ai piani di investimento del secondo dopoguerra, supportati dagli Usa, e alle speculazioni edilizie che avrebbero cambiato il volto della capitale.

      All’inaugurazione dell’impianto, nel 1950, fu invitato lo stesso sir Alexander Fleming, scopritore della penicillina. Un graffito, nello scheletro esterno della struttura, lo ritrae pensieroso: “ti ricordi quando eravamo i più grandi?”, recita la scritta. Il quotidiano “L’Unità” aveva dedicato un paginone all’evento, col titolo “la più grande fabbrica di penicillina d’Europa inaugurata a Roma”. Dagli oltre 1300 operai degli anni Sessanta, si passò però presto a poche centinaia, fino all’abbandono totale dell’attività, alla fine degli anni Novanta. Un altro sogno, quello di una cordata di imprenditori, che volevano demolirla per fare spazio a un maxi-albergo di alta categoria, si infranse di fronte ai costi per lo smaltimento di rifiuti chimici e amianto, tuttora presenti nell’area.

      “Questo posto lo chiamano il grande ghetto”, ci dice Ahmad Al Rousan, coordinatore per Medici senza frontiere dell’intervento nei campi informali, mentre entriamo dentro uno degli stabilimenti con una torcia, perché qui manca tutto, anche l’elettricità. Camminiamo tra spazzatura, escrementi e resti della vecchia fabbrica: ampolle, fiale, scatole di medicinali su cui c’è ancora la bolla di accompagnamento. “C’è un posto qui vicino, il piccolo ghetto, qui ci sono circa 500 persone, lì 150”, aggiunge. “Non solo chiamano questi luoghi ghetti, ma chi ci vive si sente anche ghettizzato”.

      In questa area industriale abbandonata ci sono persone che arrivano da diverse parti del mondo: nord Africa, Sub Sahara, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Romania, e c’è anche un italiano. La maggior parte sono titolari di protezione internazionale, altri in attesa di essere ascoltati dalla commissione territoriale che dovrà decidere sulla richiesta d’asilo, altri ancora hanno il permesso di soggiorno scaduto. Tutti sono fuori dall’accoglienza per qualche motivo.
      Il rapporto di Medici Senza Frontiere

      Come denuncia “Fuori campo”, l’ultimo rapporto di Medici Senza Frontiere, in tutta Italia ci sono almeno 10 mila persone in questa condizione, alloggiate in insediamenti informali con limitato o nessun accesso ai beni essenziali e alle cure mediche. Nella capitale la maggior parte si concentra proprio qui, nella zona est, tra la Tiburtina e la Casilina, passando per Tor Cervara. Edifici abbandonati, ex fabbriche e capannoni, sono diventati la casa di centinaia tra migranti e rifugiati. Che ci vivono da invisibili in condizioni disumane, senza acqua, luce e gas, spesso a ridosso di discariche abusive.

      Da novembre 2017, l’Ong ha avviato un intervento con un’unità mobile composta da un medico, uno psicologo e un mediatore culturale, e da qualche settimana il camper è arrivato anche all’ex Leo. Quella di Msf è l’unica presenza esterna negli spazi dell’occupazione: gli operatori vengono qui una volta alla settimana, dal primo pomeriggio alla sera, per portare assistenza medica e psicologica agli abitanti. Un piccolo gazebo allestito nella parte esterna degli edifici fa da ambulatorio, la sala d’attesa è, invece, lo spazio antistante, un tavolino da campeggio, qualche sedia pieghevole e una lampada. Per chi abita qui questo momento è diventato un rito, c’è chi viene per la prima volta, chi torna per un controllo, chi viene solo per chiacchierare.

      Un ragazzo si avvicina con aria timida: “they rescued me”, ci dice, raccontando di aver riconosciuto il logo di Msf sul gazebo, lo stesso visto sulla pettorina delle persone che lo avevano soccorso nel mezzo del Mediterraneo, nel 2016. Ora, due anni dopo l’approdo in Italia, è sbarcato anche lui all’ex fabbrica della penicillina. Entra e inizia la sua prima visita: lamenta mal di testa frequenti. La dottoressa misura la pressione e compila una scheda.

      “I problemi di salute qui sono legati soprattutto alle condizioni di vita: non ci sono servizi igienici e c’è solo una presa d’acqua fredda, per centinaia di persone”, spiega Al Rousan. La patologia più comune, aggiunge “è quella respiratoria dovuta al freddo o all’aria che respirano; l’unico modo che hanno per scaldarsi è accendere il fuoco, con tutti i rischi connessi: qualche giorno fa abbiamo assistito una persona completamente ustionata, in modo grave. Ha aspettato il nostro arrivo, non ha voluto andare a farsi vedere in un ospedale”. Di incendi qui ce ne sono stati diversi, come rivelano i muri anneriti di interi spazi. L’ultimo, a fine gennaio 2018, ha richiesto l’intervento dei vigili del fuoco, dopo l’esplosione di una bombola del gas. Quando cala la sera, le luci dei fuochi accesi e le fiammelle delle candele spezzano il buio totale degli edifici.

      “Questo è un posto estremo, dove l’esclusione è totale”, sottolinea Al Rousan. Dopo aver subito vari traumi nel viaggio e poi in Libia, trovarsi in questa condizione significa vedere infranto il sogno di potersi integrare, di costruirsi una nuova vita. Lavoro da tanti anni in situazioni simili, ma non ho mai visto una cosa del genere. E non pensavo potesse esserci un posto così a Roma”.
      La normalità dell’esclusione

      La fabbrica è occupata da diversi anni, e come in tutti gli insediamenti informali, gli abitanti hanno ricostruito una parvenza di normalità. Lamin, che viene dal Gambia, gestisce un piccolo market all’ingresso di uno dei capannoni principali. I prodotti li acquista al mercato di piazza Vittorio, dove si trovano i cibi di tutto il mondo. Qui vende aranciata, farina, zucchero, fagioli, candele e i dadi marca Jumbo, indispensabili – ci dice – per preparare qualsiasi piatto africano.

      Ha poco più di vent’anni e prima di arrivare qui viveva a via Vannina, in un altro stabile occupato, poco lontano. Nel violento sgombero del giugno 2017, è volato giù dalle scale e ancora, dice, “ho dolori frequenti alle ossa”. La fabbrica è diventata la sua nuova casa.

      Victor, 23 anni, è arrivato invece all’ex Penicillina dopo un periodo trascorso in un centro di accoglienza a Lecce, mentre era in corso la sua domanda d’asilo. Ottenuto lo status di rifugiato ha deciso di spostarsi a Roma per cercare lavoro, ma non parla neanche una parola di italiano. Il suo sogno è fare il giornalista. Nel suo paese, la Nigeria, ha studiato Comunicazione: “sono grato al governo italiano per quanto ha fatto per me”, dice, “ma non pensavo che una volta arrivato in Italia mi sarei trovato in questa situazione: quando sono arrivato a Roma ho vissuto un periodo alla stazione Termini. Faceva freddo e la temperatura di notte arrivava quasi allo zero. Un connazionale mi ha parlato di questo posto, mi ha detto che qui almeno potevo farmi una doccia. Invece, una volta arrivato ho scoperto che c’era solo una fontanella per l’acqua”. Come tutti, spera di andarsene presto. “Questo luogo cambia le persone, rallenta ogni aspirazione e io, invece, il mio sogno lo vorrei realizzare”, ci dice con uno sguardo vivace.

      Nel reticolo di capannoni, corridoi e cortili, ci sono altri piccoli bar e negozi: l’ultimo è stato aperto pochi giorni fa. Sulla facciata troneggia la bandiera giallorossa della squadra di calcio della Roma. Raffigura la lupa capitolina che allatta Romolo e Remo: qui è quasi un paradosso, quell’immagine simbolo di mamma Roma, patria dell’accoglienza.

    • Il sistema di accoglienza italiano verso il default organizzativo e morale

      Sono pubblicate da tempo le relazioni della Commissione di inchiesta della Camera dei deputati sui Centri per stranieri. Relazioni che censuravano l’utilizzo degli Hotspot come strutture detentive e chiedevano la chiusura del mega CARA di Mineo. Ma il governo e le prefetture non hanno svolto quel lavoro di pulizia con la estromissione del marcio che risultava largamente diffuso da nord e sud. Una operazione che sarebbe stata doverosa per difendere i tanti operatori e gestori dell’accoglienza che fanno il proprio dovere e che avrebbe permesso di rintuzzare uno degli argomenti elettorali più in voga nella propaganda politica delle destre, appunto gli sprechi e gli abusi verificati da tutti ormai all’interno dei centri di accoglienza, soprattutto in quelli appaltati direttamente dalle prefetture, i Centri di accoglienza straordinaria (CAS), la parte più consistente del sistema di accoglienza italiano.

    • Ventimiglia. Prima della neve. Un report del gruppo di medici volontari del 27 febbraio scorso tratto dal blog Parole sul Confine

      Sabato 27 febbraio è stata una giornata di lavoro intenso sotto al ponte di via Tenda.

      Avremmo fatto almeno 40 visite.

      Rispetto alla scorsa estate ci sono più persone che vivono sotto al ponte del cavalcavia lungo al fiume, con un numero senza precedenti di donne e bambini anche molto piccoli.

      L’insediamento sembra sempre più stabile, con baracche costruite con pezzi di legno e teli di plastica. Le persone che vivono lì sono prevalentemente eritree e sudanesi. Al momento, tutte le donne sole e le madri sono eritree.

      Le persone che abbiamo visitato erano giovanissime. Tantissime affette da scabbia. Spesso con sovra-infezioni molto importanti. Grazie alla nostra disponibilità di farmaci e grazie alle scorte di indumenti stivati presso l’infopoint Eufemia abbiamo potuto somministrare il trattamento anti scabbia a molte persone, dopo esserci assicurati che avessero compreso come eseguire correttamente tutta la procedura.

    • Purgatory on the Riviera

      Ventimiglia is idyllic. It sits just across the Italian border from the French Riviera. The piercingly blue waters of the Mediterranean churn against its rocky beaches, and its buildings, painted in earthy pastels, back up against the foothills of the Alps. On Fridays, the normally quiet streets are bustling with French tourists who cross the border by car, train, and bicycle to shop in its famous markets where artisans and farmers sell clothes, leather items, fresh produce, truffles, cheeses and decadent pastries. Families with young children and elderly couples stroll along the streets and sit at sidewalk cafes or eat in one of the many restaurants along the shore.

      Global Gender Gap Report 2017

      Gender parity is fundamental to whether and how economies and societies thrive. Ensuring the full development and appropriate deployment of half of the world’s total talent pool has a vast bearing on the growth, competitiveness and future-readiness of economies and businesses worldwide. This year’s edition of the report dives into the dynamics of gender gaps across industry talent pools and occupations. The Global Gender Gap Report benchmarks 144 countries on their progress towards gender parity across four thematic dimensions: Economic Participation and Opportunity, Educational Attainment, Health and Survival, and Political Empowerment.

  • Migration: the riddle of Europe’s shadow population
    Lennys — not her real name — is part of a shadow population living in Europe that predates the arrival of several million people on the continent in the past few years, amid war and chaos in regions of the Middle East and Africa. That influx, which has fuelled Eurosceptic nativism, has if anything complicated the fate of Lennys and other irregular migrants.

    Now she is using a service set up by the Barcelona local administration to help naturalise irregular migrants and bring them in from the margins of society. She is baffled by the anti-immigrant rhetoric of politicians who suggest people like her prefer living in the legal twilight, without access to many services — or official protection.❞

    The fate of Lennys and other irregulars is likely to take an ever more central role in Europe’s deepening disputes on migration. They are a diverse group: many arrived legally, as Lennys did, on holiday, work or family visas that have since expired or become invalid because of changes in personal circumstances. Others came clandestinely and have never had any legal right to stay.

    The most scrutinised, and frequently demonised, cohort consists of asylum seekers whose claims have failed. Their numbers are growing as the cases from the surge in migrant arrivals in the EU in 2015 and 2016 — when more than 2.5m people applied for asylum in the bloc — work their way through the process of decisions and appeals. Almost half of first instance claims failed between 2015 and 2017, but many of those who are rejected cannot be returned to their home countries easily — or even at all.

    The question of what to do about rejected asylum applicants and the rest of Europe’s shadow population is one that many governments avoid. Bouts of hostile rhetoric and unrealistic targets — such as the Italian government’s pledge this year to expel half a million irregular migrants — mask a structural failure to deal with the practicalities.

    Many governments have sought to deny irregular migrants services and expel them — policies that can create their own steep human costs. But authorities in a growing number of cities from Barcelona to Brussels have concluded that the combination of hostile attitudes and bureaucratic neglect is destructive.

    These cities are at the frontline of dealing with irregular status residents from Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere. Local authorities have, to varying degrees, brought these populations into the system by offering them services such as healthcare, language courses and even legal help.

    The argument is part humanitarian but also pragmatic. It could help prevent public health threats, crime, exploitative employment practices — and the kind of ghettoisation that can tear communities apart.

    “If we provide ways for people to find their path in our city . . . afterwards probably they will get regularisation and will get their papers correct,” says Ramon Sanahuja, director of immigration at the city council in Barcelona. “It’s better for everybody.”

    The size of Europe’s shadow population is unknown — but generally reckoned by experts to be significant and growing. The most comprehensive effort to measure it was through an EU funded project called Clandestino, which estimated the number of irregular migrants at between 1.9m and 3.8m in 2008 — a figure notable for both its wide margin of error and the lack of updates to it since, despite the influx after 2015.

    A more contemporaneous, though also imprecise, metric comes from comparing the numbers of people ordered to leave the EU each year with the numbers who actually went. Between 2008 and 2017, more than 5m non-EU citizens were instructed to leave the bloc. About 2m returned to countries outside it, according to official data.

    While the two sets of numbers do not map exactly — people don’t necessarily leave in the same year they are ordered to do so — the figures do suggest several million people may have joined Europe’s shadow population in the past decade or so. The cohort is likely to swell further as a glut of final appeals from asylum cases lodged since 2015 comes through.

    “The volume of people who are in limbo in the EU will only grow, so it’s really problematic,” says Hanne Beirens, associate director at Migration Policy Institute Europe, a think-tank. “While the rhetoric at a national level will be ‘These people cannot stay’, at a local community level these people need to survive.”

    Barcelona: cities seek practical solutions to ease migrant lives

    Barcelona’s pragmatic approach to irregular migration echoes its history as a hub for trade and movement of people across the Mediterranean Sea.

    It is one of 11 cities from 10 European countries involved in a two-year project on the best ways to provide services to irregular status migrants. Other participants in the initiative — set up last year by Oxford university’s Centre on Migration, Policy, and Society — include Athens, Frankfurt, Ghent, Gothenburg, Lisbon, Oslo, Stockholm and Utrecht.

    A report for the group, published last year, highlights the restrictions faced by undocumented migrants in accessing services across the EU. They were able to receive only emergency healthcare in six countries, while in a further 12 they were generally excluded from primary and secondary care services.

    Some cities have made special efforts to offer help in ways that they argue also benefit the community, the report said. Rotterdam asked midwives, doctors, and schools to refer children for vaccinations, in case their parents were afraid to reveal their immigration status.

    The impact of some of these policies has still to be demonstrated. Ramon Sanahuja, director of immigration at the city council in Barcelona, says authorities there had an “intuition” their approach brought benefits, but he admits they need to do a cost-benefit analysis. As to the potential for the scheme to be exploited by anti-immigrant groups, he says Europe needs “brave politicians who explain how the world works and that the system is complicated”.

    “A lot of people in Barcelona are part of the system — they have [for example] a cleaning lady from Honduras who they pay €10 per hour under the counter,” he says. “Someone has to explain this, that everything is related.” Michael Peel

    Au niveau de la #terminologie (#mots, #vocabulaire), pour @sinehebdo:

    Belgian policy towards irregular migrants and undocumented workers has stiffened under the current government, which includes the hardline Flemish nationalist NVA party. It has prioritised the expulsion of “transmigrants”— the term used for people that have travelled to Europe, often via north Africa and the Mediterranean and that are seeking to move on from Belgium to other countries, notably the UK. Several hundred live rough in and around Brussels’ Gare du Nord.

    Vu d’ailleurs. L’injonction vient de haut. De très haut, même. Du comité central du Parti communiste chinois (PCC). Il ne faut plus manipuler les #statistiques. Selon le China Daily du 18 septembre, les instances dirigeantes du parti ont pris, cet été, vingt mesures afin de prévenir et de punir la fraude statistique. Le Bureau national de la statistique (BNS) a même créé un département spécial à cet effet.

    Le problème est que ce n’est pas la première fois que de telles dispositions sont annoncées. En 2016 puis en 2017, des règles avaient déjà été adoptées, et les tricheurs déjà menacés. Mais rien n’y a fait : la fameuse citation de l’ancien premier ministre britannique Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881) – « Il y a trois sortes de mensonges : le mensonge, le gros mensonge et la statistique » – pourrait servir de devise à la Chine de Xi Jinping.

    Convaincus depuis longtemps que fraudes et erreurs entachent les agrégats économiques, les spécialistes préfèrent d’ailleurs utiliser d’autres indicateurs. Par exemple, plutôt que se fier à l’évolution du produit intérieur brut, nombre d’entre eux suivent la consommation d’énergie, à leurs yeux plus fiable. Enfin le croyaient-ils. Sauf qu’en juillet, l’administration nationale de l’énergie a déclaré que le secteur agricole avait utilisé en juin 6,5 milliards de kilowatts/heure d’électricité, soit, affirme-t-il, « 6,6 % de plus » qu’en juin 2017. Une augmentation équivalente, ça tombe bien, aux prévisions de croissance du gouvernement : 6,5 % cette année.

    Le problème est qu’en juin 2017, le chiffre alors publié s’élevait à 12 milliards de kilowatts/heure… près du double, donc. Interrogée, l’administration a expliqué a posteriori qu’elle excluait désormais les « services à l’agriculture », ce qui n’a qu’à moitié convaincu les spécialistes.

      Contradictions et tricherie

      Même les statistiques du BNS sont pleines de contradictions. En juillet, le quotidien de Hongkong en langue anglaise South China Morning Post rappelait que, selon le BNS, les profits de l’industrie chinoise s’étaient élevés à 2 700 milliards de yuans (333 milliards d’euros) pour les cinq premiers mois de l’année, en hausse de 16,5 % par rapport à la même période de 2017. Le problème est qu’à l’époque, le chiffre publié était de 2 900 milliards de yuans. Là encore, un « problème d’échantillon », paraît-il, mais aucune définition précise ne permet d’en avoir le cœur net, déplore le journal.

      Il y a encore plus étrange : trois gouvernements locaux ont reconnu, ces derniers temps, avoir triché. Et pas qu’un peu. Le Liaoning, une des grandes régions de l’industrie lourde chinoise, a avoué avoir gonflé artificiellement son produit intérieur brut régional d’environ 20 % entre 2011 et 2014. Dans la foulée, la Mongolie intérieure a, elle, reconnu avoir, en 2016, surévalué de 40 % sa production industrielle et de 26 % ses revenus fiscaux. Quant à la grande ville portuaire de Tianjin, elle a finalement réduit d’un tiers le PIB de 2016 annoncé auparavant. Etonnamment, ces révélations n’ont eu aucune incidence sur le PIB national.

      Ces « erreurs » ne doivent en fait pas grand-chose au hasard. Dans un pays qui a longtemps fait de la croissance économique sa priorité absolue, chaque responsable communiste est surtout jugé sur sa contribution à cette grande cause nationale. Quels que soient les moyens employés.

      Aujourd’hui, alors que le président Xi Jinping concentre plus de pouvoirs que n’importe quel dirigeant depuis Mao, chaque responsable, chaque institution est d’abord et avant tout à son service. Y compris, bien sûr, le Bureau national des statistiques. Le début du communiqué portant sur la croissance au mois d’août l’illustre jusqu’à la caricature : « En août, sous la direction de la pensée de Xi Jinping sur le socialisme aux caractéristiques chinoises pour une nouvelle ère, toutes les régions et les départements ont mis en œuvre les décisions et les dispositions prises par le comité central du PCC et le gouvernement, et l’économie nationale a maintenu un bon rythme de croissance régulière. » Nous voilà rassurés : Disraeli n’est pas mort.

    Alors que les inégalités de revenu se creusent depuis les années 90, la mobilité sociale marque le pas : les personnes situées au bas de l’échelle sont désormais moins nombreuses à grimper les échelons, tandis que les plus riches conservent, dans une large mesure, leurs privilèges. Or les effets d’une telle situation sur le plan économique, social et politique sont très dommageables, selon un nouveau rapport publié par l’OCDE. L’étude « A Broken Social Elevator ? How to Promote Social Mobility » montre que, compte tenu des niveaux actuels d’inégalités et de mobilité intergénérationnelle sur l’échelle des revenus, au moins cinq générations (ou 150 ans) pourraient être nécessaires, en moyenne dans les pays de l’OCDE, pour que les enfants de familles modestes parviennent à se hisser au niveau du revenu moyen (voir le graphique ci-dessous). Dans les pays nordiques, cela pourrait prendre deux à trois générations seulement, tandis que dans certaines économies émergentes, ce processus pourrait se dérouler sur neuf générations ou plus. Un enfant sur trois dont le père a des revenus modestes percevra lui aussi de faibles revenus ; pour les deux autres tiers, la mobilité ascendante sur l’échelle des revenus se limitera souvent à l’échelon voisin.

  • Social Metrics Commission launches a new measure of UK poverty

    For the first time in a generation, the moment is right to propose new poverty metrics. With the abolition of the Child Poverty Act and its targets, and debates ongoing about the most appropriate way in which to measure, track and monitor poverty, players from all sides of the political spectrum are interested in what options could exist next.

    The Social Metrics Report 2018, published 17th September 2018, marks the culmination of two years of sustained work. It outlines a new approach to poverty measurement for the UK and provides original analysis that demonstrates the fundamental changes to our understanding of poverty it creates. Most importantly, the approach, results and recommendations in this report are supported by every Commissioner. They truly represent a consensus view of how we should measure and understand the incidence of poverty in the UK and the experiences of those who are in poverty.

      It presents a detailed articulation of how the approach to poverty measurement can be improved in the UK and elsewhere. The Commission’s new measure:
      • Takes account of all material resources, not just incomes. For instance, this means including an assessment of the available assets that families have;
      • Accounts for the inescapable costs that some families face, which make them more likely than others to experience poverty. These include, the extra costs of disability, and costs of childcare and rental and mortgage costs;
      • Broadens the approach of poverty measurement to include an assessment of housing adequacy. For example, by regarding those sleeping rough as being in poverty; and
      • Positions the measure of poverty within a wider measurement framework, which allows us to understand more about the nature of poverty in the UK.
