We all heard in the last days about the Aquarius-boat and the unfortunate fate of the 629 migrants on board who have been denied access to Italian harbours.
Here Rototom's answer:
"Rototom Sunsplash, which is promoting values and messages of peace, love, tolerance, integration and respect since the beginning of its existence, wants to show full solidarity to the 629 people who were saved on the Aquarius - boat of the NGO SOS Mediterranée and Doctors Without Borders - who will get to the port of Valencia in the following hours after being refused by Italian government on their country.
Moreover, Rototom Sunsplash wants to offer, through its NGO Exodus, help to all institutions, social organisations and entities involved in helping these people, by letting them know the festival's organisation is ready to help in any needed way.
“We are ready to help these 629 migrants in any possible way. Among them, there are seven pregnant women, eleven kids and 123 unaccompanied minors who we want to welcome in the best way", has declared the international reggae festival"
