I am pleased that refugees from Ukraine are being helped. Refugees from Ukraine are seen as people, but refugees like me from Africa and middle eastern countries are not such ‘good’ humans. We are insulted!
We are never expected to be active in shaping our lives. We are like shadows which don’t really exist. People do things to us without asking. Open Doors is just a small step to show what we are capable of.
If there is nothing dramatic to report, there is no media. But to live with this tumor in our midst is distressing in the extreme for both the refugees and many islanders. The system is foul and dangerous and criminal. Change is desperately needed.
