Milanese Protesters condemn Salvini's migrant crackdown
Some thousand protesters filled Milan's Piazza della Scala on Tuesday in protest against the Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini's decision to close Italian ports to migrant rescue ships.
"We ask to solve problems on the land, not the sea. The sea is the place to rescue people, as soon as possible." said Giorgia Linardi, a member of Sea Watch, a non-profit organisation which carries out rescue operations in the Mediterranean.
Hundreds of protesters rallied on the streets of Rome, Monday as well following the decision of Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini to close the country’s ports to migrant rescue ships.
