Todos somos migrantes

O pasado 9 de maio, na Sede Afundación Santiago de Compostela (rúa do Vilar, 19), celebramos un encontro que puxo a emigración e Europa enriba da mesa.

Catro extraordinarios ponentes, un público que case enchía o auditorio e a profesionalidade das nosas rapazas e rapaces do grupo Erasmus na organización, fixeron que o acto fora un éxito.

O traballo durante o último mes organizouse por responsabilidades:

* O grupo de orde encargouse de preparar e controlar que o programa saíra como se formulou, ademais de recibir a conferenciantes e público, e de resolver calquera dificultade que puidera xurdir durante a realización do acto.

* O equipo audiovisual foi o encargado de filmar e fotografiar o acto. Con todo o material obtido realizarán unha montaxe da que poderedes disfrutar máis cedo que tarde.

* O equipo de presentadores introduciron e despediron o acto, ademais de facer unha pequena semblanza de cada un dos ponentes.

* O equipo de prensa foi o que redactou o comunicado de prensa que mandamos aos medios de comunicación, xestionou -coa axuda dos profesores- as entrevistas de radio e o contacto coa axencia EFE e os periódicos e televisións de ámbito local e rexional.

* Finalmente, o equipo de produción encargouse do son e imaxes que acompañaban á locución dos nosos invitados.

O día foi unha homenaxe aos migrantes, contando con catro persoas que amosaron distintas perspectivas e realidades do fenómeno migratorio.

* Con Nour Al-Hussen, natural de Raqqa e unha persoa que se sente privilexiada, entendimos o que significa ter unha dobre nacionalidade (siria e española) e vivir todos os días co peso de que o país no que naceches e amas está en guerra (sufrindo a túa familia siria directamente esa situación).

* Paco Durán aprendeu moito do seu camiño migrante, xa de neno, consecuencia da miseria que empurrou a millóns de españois e españolas (como a súa nai) á emigración. A adaptación a Inglaterra de neno foi difícil e chea de sufrimento, pero tamén de aprendizaxes que explican o que el é hoxe.

* Marisa Rodríguez formulou unha nova realidade migratoria: a dunha nena, ela, que foi criada polos seus avós mentres os seus pais traballaban en Alemaña. Soubemos das condicións sufridas polos traballadores estranxeiros en Alemaña e entendemos as dificultades dese alonxamento. Foi emocionante escoitar o agradecemento de Marisa aos seus pais, presentes na primeira fila do auditorio.

* Paula Romero, finalmente, responde a un fenómeno migratorio diferente: profesora de inglés nun colexio internacional noruegués, a súa experiencia está moi marcada polo amor e pola curiosidade profesional. Os seus traballos actuais, no colexio internacional e na escola diplomática en Oslo reflectiron unha sociedade, a europea, que é pluricultural e dinámica.

Foi fermoso ver que as catro historias chegaban a conclusións comúns: a riqueza do fenómeno migratorio para calquera sociedade, a importancia de recoñecer e protexer aos migrantes de agora e sempre, o dereito a emigrar pero tamén a non verse obrigado a emigrar, a reivindicación dunha Europa multicultural e solidaria con todos os pobos da Terra.

Tras o peche do acto co poema “Irmaos”, de Celso Emilio Ferreiro, as rapazas e rapaces organizadores do acto, a comunidade educativa do noso colexio (xenerosamente representada no auditorio), os ponentes e o público en xeral continuamos o diálogo durante case trinta minutos dentro e fóra da Sede Afundación Santiago de Compostela.

O grupo Erasmus queremos despedir esta crónica sen olvidar dicirvos a todas e todos: grazas por vir, grazas polo voso apoio, grazas pola vosa xenerosidade.

We are all migrants. A report

On the 9th May, we celebrated a panel about migration and Europe. The event was a success thanks to the four extraordinary guest speakers, as well as a large audience, and last but not least, the professionality of the Erasmus students.

The work during the last month was organised into groups with the following responsabilities:

1. The order group was in charge of preparing and controlling that everything was executed as planned, overseeing all minor details. These included welcoming the guests speakers and the public.

2. The audiovisual group was in charge of filming and taking pictures during the event. A documentary will be made with all the collected material so that everybody can make a good use of it later on.

3. The team of presenters opened the event with a short introduction of the panel, and they closed the event with a short speech.

4. The Media and communications group was in charge of writing a press release that was sent to the media. They handled the radio interviews, together with the teachers, and they contacted with EFE Agency, local and regional TV and Newspapers.

5. The production group was in charge of the sound and images during the event.

The day honoured the migrants, and we counted with the participation of four guest speakers who shared their own personal experiences about migration.

Nour Al- Hussen, from Raqqa (Siria) feels priviledged, and made the audience understand with her intervention what it means having a double nationality, as well as living everyday with the thoughts of the hardship that is taking place at her birth land in Siria, which affects most of her family and close friends.

Paco Durán learnt a lot from this migrant experience. From his early days as a child, he experienced the misery that pushed his family to leave their country, as it was the case for many Spanish people at that time. The adaptation to England was hard and full of challenges, but the experience has been rich and crucial to define who he is today as a person.

Marisa Rodriguez described a new reality of migration. She was a girl brought up by her grandparents while her parents worked in Germany. She learnt about the conditions foreign workers suffered in Germany at that time, and we understood the difficulties one has to go through when you are far away from your home land. It was moving listening to Marisa´s appreciation to her parents , who were present in the audience.

Paula Romero highlights another different reality of migration. She is a Spanish teacher in a International School in Norway, as well as in the Norwegian Diplomat Academy. Her experience is driven by the curiosity for learning, and discovering new cultures, as well as by love. Her current job as a Spanish teacher and consultant reflects a new society, our European
