Director’s Statement

Migration from developing countries is the result of the lack of opportunity and the violation of human rights. It is necessary to make a statement, on behalf of the human in every immigrant, who decides to leave his/her home country to pursue their dreams and the possibility to provide a better future for their families. We must acknowledge overpopulation as the modern man´s tragedy, and as immigrants, value the sacrifice and the rules of a country, that fights to maintain the order for a better society
