Stop landings to Lampedusa Island

This Facebook community is called “Stop landings to Lampedusa” and has born as an apolitical movement fighting against immigrants´ arrival in Lampedusa island in Southern Italy. Though the community administrator does not explicit his of her racist point of view, most of profile posts express racist opinions which make immigrants guilty about bad and disrespectful behaviors.

A crew of intrepid Citizen TV makers learning to shoot with WORLDbytes, take to the streets to investigate public attitudes to immigration.
