Ukrainian women in Vicenza support the European choice of their country
On 21 December 2013, ALDA, together with the Association Orizzonti Comuni and Ufficio Migrantes organized an event at Palazzo delle Opere Sociali, in Piazza Duomo in Vicenza.
The aim of the meeting was to discuss the ongoing situation in Ukraine. The event was attended by many Ukrainian women, all caretakers for families in the area.
Isabella Sala, Councilor for the community and the family of the Municipality of Vicenza, participated at the event as well as the Councilor for Education, Youth and equal opportunities in Bassano del Grappa, Anna Toniolo and the Regional Councillor Stefano Fracasso.
All the participants expressed a strong concern about the situation faced by the country, as well as solidarity with their compatriots who guard all the day and night Maidan square in Kiev. They all support a change of government and its policies, which are not addressed to the well-being of the population, but to the interests of political parties. Axcess in the Europe Union would mean a different future for young people thanks to the role played by citizens, who really want to participate in economic and social policies, and to contribute to a peaceful coexistence and cooperation between peoples. For this reasons, it is important to keep Ukraine united, avoiding any division between West and East of the country.
The meeting ended with the commitment of the Ukrainian women to be more united in Italy, to support each other while away from their Country, without losing hope in the future of their children, grandchildren and the beloved Ukraine.
