WAR-TORN: A transit camp in Iraq.
ALMERIA Province political parties are urging councils to declare their towns ‘refugees welcome’ zones.
Nijar and Almeria City have already done so and they are now joined by Mojacar, where a plenary session voted unanimously to assist refugees from war zones. “Conscious of the grave situation, the town of Mojacar should remain true to its tradition as a meeting place where different nationalities and cultures live in harmony as well as its tradition of unquestionable humanitarian goodwill and international cooperation,” the council declared.
The town hall will create a register of families who wish to take refugees into their homes or other properties that they own and support them during the time they are in Mojacar.
Residents interested in collaborating are asked to contact the town hall’s Social Services department.
Nijar Town Hall voted in September to become part of the network of ‘refugees-welcome’ towns. The motion proposed by Alexis Pineda, Deputy Mayor and IU party spokesman, was approved by all parties on the council.
“This is least we can do when faced with the destabilisation and destruction of prosperous countries like Syria or Libya,” Pineda said at the time.

So I hope the council has extra jobs that no one in the country needs so they can give them employment… or hey no need, they can just steal from people and beg in the streets like the rest of them when they come here and can’t find work!
