A couple of friend of mine are organising this charity event to help raise awareness and to fight the streneuos conditions immigrant workers are facing in the italian fields harvesting tomatoes.

Join them on the 14th of November for a night of music. 

Below their invitation.

Dear all,
we are delighted to invite you to the II edition of Out of The Ghetto Night, an event to break the silence. 
In collaboration with Osservatorio Migranti and other Italian no-profit associations based in Basilicata, (Italy) on Friday 14th of November we will be hosting a charity evening in order to raise funds for a very important cause.
Some of you may know that every summer there are many migrants (most of them from Africa) coming to Italy for the tomato harvest in the fields of some regions of the South, such as Puglia, Basilicata and Calabria. Unfortunately, very often, they are exploited by the employers, shameless gangmasters who force them to work in extremely tough conditions.

As Italians in London, we’ve decided to help the local associations which are involved in many projects aiming to help those exploited migrants such as the arrangement of italian lessons, organic tomatoes farming and so on. 

This issue is not something concerning just Italy but, actually, somehow is directly connected with England too. In fact, very often, the tomatoes which are harvested on those fields, are ending up on the shelves of very well known chains such as Tesco, Sainsbury, Waitrose.

So join us at Out of the Ghetto Night where there will be Terra Viva, Barbara Reggio and Craig Carri performing live and, to top it up, a beautiful photographic projection of Tiziano Doria which will tell us what is the reality like, in those fields. 

We will wait for you at Look Mum No hands (Mare street).

Next 14th of November, come along and make the difference!

Thank you!
