Italian is a beautiful language.
Imagine an Italian speaking ...
f.e., the word clandestini.
Clan - des - ti - ni.
Ah, it's music, isn't it?
Well, the right voice, and il - le - gal(e) sounds sweet as well, hm?
Illegal(e) is just another word for clandestino, clandestina, clandestini.
Völkerwanderung (wandering of the people) is a / the German word for migration.
Ever heard about the migration period?
Do you remember what Deng Xiaoping once offered Jimmy Carter when the US-President insisted on speaking about human rights?
How many Chinese do you wish me to let accompany you on your return-flight? Ten millions? Fifty millions? 100 millions?
It is said that Mr Carter immediately changed the topic.
Clandestini - illegals.
A very very difficult topic. And very a complex one.
Too complex for me to put all aspects into a short post.
Yesterday I heard a song, though. The CD's title: Clandestini.
Don't know why, but immediately I thought of some posts by Welshcakes Limoncello.
There have been quite a few about this topic in recent years, but when reading this one from April 14th (The sea has no generosity) and this one from June 17th ( (Il silencio del mare), you will almost know what I think about one aspect.
And, although it is / seems nowadays but a platitude, I like it:
Everyone is illegal - almost everywhere.
In this sense: Here's Manu Chao.
