Lampedusa Gateway to Europe Event

A lecture by Dr. Pietro Bartolo in the occasion of the presentation of his book Lampedura Gateway to Europe, written together with Lidia Tilotta. The event will take place on Monday, 26th of November, at the King’s College in the Safra Lecture Theatre (ground floor, King’s building, Strand) at 6.30 pm.

Details on Eventbrite.

Mr. Pietro Bartolo is the doctor of the Italian island of Lampedusa, the European territory closest to Libya, which has become a prime transit point for migrants from Africa, the Middle East and Asia wanting to enter Europe.

Mr Bartolo has published a book, “Lampedusa Gateway to Europe”, which is the essential testimony of his work for twenty-five years on the front line of perhaps the largest mass migration in human history.

While he continues with his profession in Lampedusa, he has decided to embark into a campaign to raise awareness on immigration which promotes acceptance and integration of migrants. That is taking him around Italy and Europe, in schools, universities, no profit organizations and public meetings. His testimony is also part of a Italian documentary, “ Fire at sea” , which was awarded with the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Campaign Day-Sat 3 November 2018

This Saturday 3 November 2018 is a Labour Party “National Day of Action” and we would be delighted for you to join us.

We will be holding a street stall in Earl’s Court, our most marginal ward, from 10am until lunchtime where we will be talking to local residents and distributing leaflets.

We are meeting outside Earl’s Court tube station (Earl’s Court Road entrance) at 10am and erecting the stall nearby.

We were only 100 votes off winning Earl’s Court in the local elections this year so a continuous Labour presence is vital. We hope you can come and support our “shadow councillors” Bruno de Florence and Sam Batra in the ward.
