How to treat refugees and migrants

I was personally touched by this BBC video last week of Yannis Varoufakis, one of the DiEM25 founders, talking about how to treat refugees and immigrants.

 

Nothing new under the sun

 

We live in a moment of the times that we’re only thinking about the present and maybe maybe about the future, but we forget the past.  My grandmother left Belgium in WWII and went as a refugee to France – she didn’t speak a word of french.  But she was welcomed and hosted by the french until the war was over.  She went back to here home town as a true ambassador for the friendly and hospitable french people…

Treat these people with respect, treat their trauma, treat them as human beings and they will love you forever
