Opening borders – Solidarity concert with refugees
On Saturday, October 8, 2016, the Young Section of Group Eirene held a concert with the refugees in Santa Coloma de Gramenet. This was possible thanks to the collaboration of Optics for the World, the City Hall (especially the Department of Solidarity and Cooperation), the Diputació de Barcelona and RUIDO.
The purpose of this concert was to raise awareness about the vulnerability that refugees are currently experiencing. The money raised through a reverse box office (€ 930) was allocated to Proactiva Open Arms, an organization whose main mission is to rescue refugees arriving in Europe from the sea from fleeing conflicts, persecution and / or poverty.
