Italy: 'Free movement for all' — Protesters rally at Italy-France border in solidarity with migrants

Scores of activists wearing orange life jackets rallied at the Ponte San Ludovico border crossing in Ventimiglia on Friday, demanding that European residence permits are issued for refugees fleeing their countries and calling for «freedom of movement for all» within Europe. The protest was reportedly organised by the left-wing group 'No Borders.' Demonstrators held a banner reading... Еще «Ventimiglia open city — freedom of movement» and chanted «Open the ports.» The border between Italy and France was sealed off during the demonstration. The protest remained peaceful; however, some 20 police vehicles were reportedly dispatched to the site. Last week, Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini expressed his determination to end migrant arrivals in Italy by boat, accusing NGOs operating migrant rescue ships of aiding human traffickers. More than 650,000 people have arrived on Italy's shores since 2014.
