  Da solidariedade – etapas da história

Durante a II Guerra Mundial, no prosseguimento da invasão e da ocupação de países europeus, desencadeou-se a espiral de terror por parte do exército nazi e, por consequência, a fuga de milhares de migrantes em busca de refúgio.

That art is something which is specialised or which is done by experts who are artists. But couldn’t everyone’s life become a work of art? Why should the […]

The new migratory flux from East Timor to Portugal: a police news?

Last September, I started to notice the first news about the rapid increase in the number of arrivals from East Timor, followed by the identification of some immigrants living and working in poor conditions in agricultural zones of Alentejo (south of Portugal)[1].

Despite the big steps that still need to be taken, there is added hope in the small steps, reflected in the fluidity of these families who tend to participate more and more and with less rigidity of roles.
