Bligg – Nur En Soldner Lyrics

“I’m only a soldier, ?in’ that sorrow”
Ich bin en Sohn Gottes
Frei wiä dä Wind
Ha nie ä Flagge wellä
Wo mer seit wer ich bin
Ich flüg wie nen Vogel
Schwömm gäg dä Strom
Los nor uf mis Herz
Ond ich ha kei Mission
Bin vom Dräck unnä ue cho
Diräkt de Sonne empor
Dänn wäg uf und dervo
Ich spreiz d’Flügel
Ich chan e Meinig akzeptieren
Aber muess si nöd teile
Ben allei uf d wält cho
Und gang au allei ge
Hey…
Ich bin nur en Söldner
Und laufe min Wäg entlang
Freiheit isch Schönste
Wil mer d’Freiheit nöd chaufe chan
Ich bin nur en Söldner
Met Liebi em Körper
Und reise uf Strasse i Städter und Dörfer
Sing mini Wörter
Geprägt vom Schmerz
Und wänni gseh was zrogg chonnt
Dänn esch es das wert
Ich erwiese min Stolz
Und schrib Ziilen us Gold
Schiss uf Erfolg und blib gschider bim Volk
Sie gsähnd mi als Poet- als moderne Dichter
Gott isch’s einzig uf dä Wält wo öber mich cha richte
Hey…
Ich bin nur en Söldner
Und laufe min Wäg entlang
Freiheit isch’s Schönste
Wil mer d’Freiheit nöd chaufe chan
Schrib
Schrib
Schrib Ziilen us Gold
Ich bin nur en Söldner
Und laufe min Wäg entlang
Freiheit isch Schönste
Wil mer d’Freiheit nöd chaufe chan

Project Pitchfork – Akkretion Lyrics

All is calm and dormant
A fragile balance in a vast space
An eternal deadlock
An eternal deadlock
A subtle impulse moves the grid
A million years of solitude
About to merge into the cloud
I begin to float
Like a dance to a tender sound
Relentless we get closer
Emotions awake in unison
I open my eyes for the first time
You are already there
All is melting into your core
You are exhaustible
But we want more
You are the extensive answer
You burst out into space
To be heard and felt
For the ones who listen
To be heard and felt
For the ones who listen
Hear and feel
Be the one who listens
Hear and feel
Be the one who listens (X4)

Islands – Red Football Lyrics

I’m not no red football
To be kicked around the garden
No no
I’m a red Christmas-tree ball
And I’m fragile
I’m not no animal
Though I am to you
I’m not no crocodile
Like the one in Dublin Zoo
Who lived in a cage
The length and breadth of his body
When a window which people would look through
And throw coins on his back to taunt him
Though he couldn’t move
Even if he wanted to
I’m not no animal in the zoo
I’m not no whipping boy for you
You may not treat me like you do
I’m not no animal in the zoo
My skin is not a football for you
My head is not a football for you
My body’s not a football for you
My womb is not a football for you
My heart is not a football for you
I’m not no animal in the zoo
This animal will jump up and eat you
I’m not no animal in the zoo
And I’ve every intention
Of leaping up and getting you

Edwin McCain – We’re All In This Together Lyrics

Don’t get used to
All this bad news
Give it time
Things will soon get better
There’ll be hard   truths
We   will live through
We   can do it
We’re all in this   together
They run the edge
Between dark and dawn
And you hear the siren singing through the night
First ones to go
First ones to show
They’re the first ones that will tell you everything’s gonna be alright
Don’t get used to
All this bad news
Give it time
Things will soon get better
There’ll be hard truths
We will live through
We can do it
We’re all in this together
Think of the boys
In those Higgins boats
Storming towards the shores of World War II
They faced their fears
They did their jobs
Now it’s our turn and there’s no time left to lose
Don’t get used to
All this bad news
Give it time
Things will soon get better
There’ll be hard truths
We will live through
We can do it
We’re all in this together
Put away your fear
And lean into this moment
There’s a brand new team of heroes on the line
We can win again
And yes it will be painful
But we’ve risen to these challenges
Time after time
Things will sure get better
We’re all in this together
Don’t get used to
All this bad news   
Give it time
Things will soon get better
There’ll be hard truths
We will live through
We can do it
We’re all in this together
Don’t get used to
All this bad news
Give it time
Things will soon get better
There’ll be hard truths
We will live through
We can do it
We’re all in this together

Ryan Mcmullan – Outcry Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You came a long way to see me
So don’t you run off, baby stop pretending   that   you’re fine
What’s the   point that you’re making
Tell me what   it is that’s going ’round inside your mind
If in doubt,   don’t   fake   it
I have known   you long enough   to know that you can’t lie
If you’re in love don’t be ashamed of it
‘Cause even angels fall for demons
Baby it’s just life
[Chorus]
If you tell me you’re hurting
I’m hurting too, yeah
Don’t tell me you’re fine – unless you’re fine
I’ll wait for the outcry
Whenever there is something weighing on your mind
[Verse 2]
I’ve heard stories, but they’re jaded
So give me something more
I only know what I’ve been told
But I can tell that you’re frustrated
And I won’t ever pry, I’ll only be a hand to hold
[Chorus]
If you tell me you’re hurting
I’m hurting too yeah
Don’t tell me you’re fine, unless you’re fine
I’ll wait for the outcry
Whenever there is something, weighing on your mind
[Bridge]
If you feel like leaving
Then maybe it’s for the best
Or if you feel like you’ve given in
Oh, give yourself a chance
If you feel like crying
Oh please don’t hold it in
If you feel like reaching out oh
Let me in
[Outro: Vocalizing]

Keith Harkin – I Remember It All Lyrics

This is where our story now begins
[Chorus]
And everyone, they disappear
I laid it on the line
I took the fall
Oh, I remember it all
I remember it all
Even though these times have passed
These memories have faded so fast
The ones I had of you I won’t let go
You and I will see this through
I’m holdin’ on to me and you
The memories we’ll make just like before
I remember them all
[Pre-Chorus]
I remember your heartbeat
From the first time I laid eyes upon you
And I remember you laughin’ with your friends
I remember your footsteps
And your sweet voice sayin’, “Hi, how are you?”
This is where our story now begins
[Chorus]
And everyone, they disappear
I laid it on the line
I took the fall
Oh, I remember it all
[Outro]
Oh, just like it was yesterday
You and me in the rain
Yeah, that red dress
Oh, umbrella in the air
Curly hair and I don’t care
Bah bah bah bah bah
Bah bah bah bah bah
Bah bah bah bah bah
Bah bah bah bah bah
Bah bah bah bah bah [Intro]
One, two
[Verse 1]
Love is never perfect
Love is so much more
Sometimes we forget
Even when you get there
The fire’s burned down low
And I need you to know
[Pre-Chorus]
That I remember your heartbeat
From the first time I laid eyes upon you
And I remember you laughin’ with your friends
I remember your footsteps
And your sweet voice sayin’
Hi, how are you? This is where our story now begins
[Chorus]
And everyone, they disappear
I laid it on the line
I took the fall
Oh, I remember it all
I remember it all
[Verse 2]
Ask me was it worth it
Would I do it all again
I wouldn’t change one thing
‘Cause you are that same person
From the first time that we met
When you showed me how to live
[Pre-Chorus]
And I remember your heartbeat
From the first time I laid eyes upon you
And I remember you laughin’ with your friends
And I remember your footsteps
And your sweet voice sayin’
Hi, how are you?

Everybody wanna act down
But they be the ones like put me on the list, no
Better pay me my cash, yeah
Blood money for my art, yeah
I know when I make my splash
That I’mma be the one that’s swimmin’ with sharks
Hold it down, I’m in the studio sleepin’
I got off of tour and my roommate just stole my shit
I learned a healthy distrust for the women I f*ck
And the people I’m homies with
Petty shit isn’t important, nah
I’m gettin’ to live what I dream about
I been runnin’ from devils forever
But I’m exercisin’ my demons now
‘Cause all of the homies are eatin’
My haters lookin’ anemic

Everybody pay respect, yeah
Can’t nobody stop my grind, nah
I don’t even waste my breath, nah
Used to run around uptown, yeah
All the homies chased them checks, yeah
I don’t keep the fake ones round
I don’t wanna be the one to break that bread
I hold it down, I learned the ones that are runnin’ they mouth
Like they about it the ones that’ll ever do it
They just pretendin’ but like the death penalty
Homie, it’s all about execution
I don’t be stressin’ about a thing
Drama done made me emotionless
But I be questionin’ everything
Like I gotta know what your motive is
Now I’m in total control of it
Nothing is breakin’ my focusin’
All of my enemies foldin’
‘Cause they playin’ Russian Roulette with a loaded clip
Foreign whip, foreign fit
What I’m in, you not affordin’ it
Don’t come to me with your hands out
If you hit up my phone, I’mma forward it
[Hook]
I don’t need no one to hold it down
My homies know when to hold it down
My lady got it, she hold it down

I don’t need no one to hold it down
My homies know when to hold it down
My lady got it, she hold it down
I get it poppin’, I hold it down
Hold it down, hold it down, hold it down, hold it down
I’m goin’ right to the top and they know it now

Jaimee Paul – I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For Lyrics

I have climbed the highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you
I have run, I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for
I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in his fingertips
Burn like a fire
This burning desire
I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for
I believe in the Kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
Yes, but I’m still running
You broke the bonds
You loosed the chains
Carried the cross of my shame
Oh, my shame, you know I believe it
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for

Hope to God you see my face

Emery – Civil Wars Lyrics

You think you’re talking, put your money where your mouth is
[?]
[?]
Run away, run away
It’s what you really want
The wars we wage inside our heads
The lies we can’t escape
We tasted fear in younger years
And buried our mistakes
The weaker ones are left behind
The wounded good as dead
So tell me who you think you are
We’ll handle this like men
We’ve all got civil wars
We’ve all got civil wars
We’ve all got civil wars
We’ve
All
Got
Civil
Wars
We fell on black days once again
([?] under my…)
And still you crawl under my skin
(There is no rest, you’re always there)
There is no rest, you’re always there
([?])
You’re always there
You’re always there I remember your face in the mirror
I remember the look in your eyes
The subtlety of   your   secrets and whispers   telling me something I’m not
All the   silly games you play and walk away with nothing to show
(Shed the skin wherever we go)
“Pull yourself together once again or else” is all that she wrote
(Your hands behind, we’ll take it slow)
The wars we wage inside our heads
The lies we can’t escape
We tasted fear in younger years
And buried our mistakes
The weaker ones are left behind, the wounded good as dead
So tell me who you think you are, we’ll handle this like men
Yeah!

Man Overboard – Lifeline Lyrics

Let me pack   my things and I’ll hit the   road
No road maps, kill the radio
Let the silence be my only lifeline
Should I pick up where we left off? Is the love still there or have we all loved on? Now I’m gone and time will move on
It’s pitch black
Outside and
There’s everywhere to hide
I gotta relate somehow
No matter what she says
I’m gonna figure it out and
Nobody can, nobody will
Take me from you tonight
I’ll tighten my grip with all my might
I’m holding on for dear life
I can see it in her eyes
Should I pick up where we left off? Let me pack my things and I’ll hit the road
No road maps, kill the radio
Let the silence be my only lifeline
I gotta relate somehow
No matter what she says
I’m gonna figure it out
This is all to much so I gotta go
Left the stage for a piece of a broken home
Let the silence be my only lifeline
I gotta relate somehow
No matter what she says
I’m gonna figure it out
(I can see it in her eyes
I can see it in her eyes )
I gotta relate somehow
No matter what she says
I’m gonna figure it out
Felt the love and pain all in harmony
Am I still the man that I used to be? I’ve been hurt and I’ve been dead wrong
Felt the love and pain all in harmony
Am I still the man that I used to be? Now I’m gone and time will move on
I gotta relate somehow
No matter what she says
I’m gonna figure it out [x3] Is the love still there
Or have we all   moved   on? This is all to much so I gotta go
Left the stage for a piece of a broken home
Let the silence be my only lifeline
It’s pitch black
Outside and
There’s everywhere to hide
I gotta relate somehow
No matter what she says
I’m gonna figure it out and
Nobody can, nobody will
Take me from you tonight
I’ll tighten my grip with all my might
I’m holding on for dear life
I can see it in her eyes
It’s August
And she swears as
She’s tying back her hair
Things are different now
She’s got all those problems figured out
And nobody will, nobody can
Take it away this time
She’s gotta feel good before she dies
She’s gotta feel right before she dies
Should I pick up where we left off? Is the love still there
Or have we all moved on? Should I pick up where we left off?

Ryan Mcmullan – Some Kind Of Perfect Lyrics

[Outro]
Tell me do you feel it too? Won’t you tell me do you feel it too? [Intro]
Oh, I’m coming home to see you
Maybe we can reconcile
We both know it won’t be   easy
But   I just can’t   wait to look in your eyes
[Verse 1]
Don’t   pretend that you don’t want me
There’s no reason to deny
Just   two   lovers   feeling lonely
And maybe   this time we’ll   get it right
[Pre-Chorus]
Would you fire up my heart as it starts to seize up? [Chorus]
I know that the lines are kind of blurry
But there’s no need to worry, we’ll see it through
Whatever it takes, it will be worth it
There’s some kind of perfect in me and you
And all of your friends, they thought I’m crazy
But baby, am I crazy for wanting you? Whatever it takes, I came to tell you I’ll fight
I’ll take my chances
What do you say? [Chorus]
I know that the lines are kind of blurry
But there’s no need to worry, we’ll see this through
Whatever it takes, it will be worth it
There’s some kind of perfect in me and you
Won’t you tell me do you feel it too? Na na na na Won’t you tell me do you feel it too? Won’t you tell me do you feel it too? [Chorus]
I know that the lines are kind of blurry
But there’s no need to worry we’ll see this through
Whatever it takes, it will be worth it
There’s some kind of perfect in me and you
And all of your friends, they thought I’m crazy
But baby, am I crazy for wanting you? Whatever it takes, I came to tell you I’ll fight
I’ll take my chances
What do you say? [Verse 2]
Oh, I’m coming home to see you
Gonna try to make you mine
And if there’s something you believe in
Then I will know from that look in your eyes
[Pre-Chorus]
Would you fire up my heart as it starts to seize up? Whatever it takes, I came to tell you I’ll fight
I’ll take my chances
What do you say? [Bridge]
I still remember how good it was before
The long nights we would walk along the shore
We used to talk about everthing and nothing at all
[Pre-Chorus]
Would you fire up my heart as it starts to seize up?

Keith Harkin – Take Me Down Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Take me down to the waves where the birds and the water flows
Take me down to the wishin’ well where the pennies glow
Let the water clean my soul and bring me home
Take me down to the garden where the man paints a purple rose
[Pre-Chorus]
And the man with the canvas, I bet he has all the answers
Yeah, I guess he’s figured this out
Well, these hearts are oh so taken and these souls are always breakin’
No, I just can’t stand the sun
[Chorus]
Someone, please, take me down, down, down
Take me down to the king, we’ll stand on his wall in China
Take me down where the pharaohs lay
Take me down to where they hide her in that galleria
Put me inside the frame
Take me to my Mona Lisa
Take me to my Mona Lisa, won’t you please once
Take me to my Mona Lisa
Ooh
Put me inside her frame
[Verse 2]
I don’t wanna be the one who skims the pages
I wanna write this book
I don’t wanna be the one that is afraid to take a second look
[Pre-Chorus]
And the man with the canvas, I bet he has all the answers
Yeah, I guess he’s figured this out
Well, these hearts are oh so taken and these souls, they’re always breakin’
No, I just can’t stand the sun
[Chorus]
Someone, please, please, take me down, down, down
Take me down to the king, we’ll stand on his wall in China
Take me down where the pharaohs lay
Take me down to where they hide her in that galleria
Put me inside the frame
Take me to my Mona Lisa
Take me to my Mona Lisa, won’t you please
Take me to my Mona Lisa
Ooh
Put me inside her frame
Hooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Hooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
[Pre-Chorus]
And the man with the canvas, I bet he has all the answers
Yeah, I guess he’s figured this out
Well, these hearts are oh so taken and these souls, they’re always breakin’
No, I just can’t stand the sun
[Chorus]
Someone take me down, down, down
Take me down to the king, we’ll stand on his wall in China
Take me down where the pharaohs lay
Take me down to where they hide her in that galleria
Let me inside the frame
Take me to my Mona Lisa
Take me to my Mona Lisa, won’t you please, just once
Take me to my Mona Lisa
Ooh
Put me inside, won’t you put me inside
Won’t you put me inside her frame

Jaimee Paul – Big Spender Lyrics

I could show you a good time
Let me show you a good time
Hey, big spender
Spend a little time with me
So let me get right to the point
I don’t pop my cork for every guy I see
Hey, big spender
Hey, big spender
Hey, big spender
Spend a little time with me
Fun, laughs, good times
Fun, laughs, good times How’s about a few laughs, laughs? The minute you walked in the joint
I could see you were a man of distinction
A real big spender
Good looking, so refined
Say, wouldn’t you like to know
What’s going on in my mind? So let me get right to the point
I don’t pop my cork for every guy I see
Hey, big spender
Spend a little time with me
Wouldn’t you like to have fun, fun, fun?

Emery – Some Of Us Lyrics

[Chorus]
Then you’re standing on the edge and looking over top the cliff
Searching for a way out of this
Just ask yourself this question
Will the jump kill you or will it let you fly
For the first time in your life
[Bridge]
A triumph and a tragedy, the scars remind but they will never heal
Suicide is sweet relief to someone who could never really feel
We drove into the sunset as the brothers and the sisters softly wept
Some of us are starting fresh but some of us will never wake again [Verse 1]
I remember that morning like it was yesterday
Threw my suitcase in the truck and kissed my mother on the cheek
It’s not so easy to leave everything you know
Eyes full of excitement with hearts so sad to leave our home
[Chorus]
Standing on the edge and looking over top the cliff
Searching for a way out of this
Just ask yourself this question
Will the jump kill you or will it let you fly
For the first time in your life
[Verse 2]
I was sinking like a stone inside my own mind
As we watched the world fall scared that we could lose it all
When you’re living out a dream, it’s the devil you will meet
When you’re face to face with all your fears
Will you still believe?

Highland – Bella Stella Lyrics

Bella Stella m’ innamoro della notte
Con la sua magia…dentro di me
Can you hear me
Sto pensando a te
Double d yes on the fat track
With the ABE guest as the fat mack
Double d on my side ya
Representing bella stella
Ti dimentico, Vertigo…non lo so
Non ritornero’ piu’ da te
Ti dimentico, Vertigo…non lo so
Tu rimarresti dentro me
…sto pensando a te
With da cast of a blast, in a stormy weather
It’ s tha last with da mask bringing you tha terror, I dare ya
Step up quick with your mad emotions I leave slick
With a trick, drownin’ in a lotion
I got the right emotion, the right grooves, the right feeling
There’ s nothing easier than sexual healing
There’ s nothing I can do, I love you and boy
U know my love is more than true
Ow lord have mercy on my soul, I’ loosing control
As I grew up I reminisce what I ‘ve been told I ‘ve sold
The other side of my behaviour
I made ya and pay ya then laid ya, so save ya
Lesson for another damn stupid ol’ brother in the hood
It’s all good and my homies I shall cover
My pain is insane to the brain
I’m lain like a train that is strain
But the game is the same
Bella Stella m’ innamoro della notte
Con la sua magia dentro di me sto pensando a te
Ti dimentico Vertigo…non lo so
Non ritornero’ piu’ da te
Ti dimentico Vertigo…non lo so
Tu rimarresti dentro me
…sto pensando a te
You say we’ re just friends but u can’ t
Stand to see me with another
Man I can’ t understand why u can’ t deal with the reality
Don’ t you think it’s a pitty try to look pretty just for u
So what am I to do write it in a paper or spell it for u
( u know) this is love nothing lower and nothing above
Bella Stella m’ innamoro della notte
Con la sua magia dentro di me sto pensando a te
Ti dimentico Vertigo…non lo so
Non ritornero piu da te
Ti dimentico Vertigo…non lo so
Tu rimanesti dentro me
…sto pensando a te
Ti dimentico Vertigo…non lo so
Non ritornero’ piu’ da te
Ti dimentico Vertigo…non lo so
Tu rimarresti dentro me
…sto pensando a te

Lacking seasonal workers, Italy elevates its long-shunned migrants

Avallone expects “neither a change in racist attitudes nor in immigration policies by the Italian state.”Editor’s note: As a public service,   all our coronavirus coverage   is free. No paywall. But Dr. A change would happen if anti-racist solidarity increased in a comprehensive movement for social justice, involving parts of the Italian and non-Italian populations together, he says.

“In the COVID-19 era, what is needed is that no one remains invisible.” 
 Mr. With most nations in the European Union closing their borders to travel in order to prevent the virus’s spread, there are no seasonal workers coming to Italy from abroad. “Our traditional agricultural laborers have almost completely disappeared. He points out that the renewal of an expired residency takes more than a year in Italy, so even those who benefit from the amnesty will soon find themselves in the country illegally again.The problem of labor exploitationMany unauthorized migrants live in makeshift camps and ghettos around Calabria, usually in poor conditions. Pezzati stresses that vulnerable Italians will also benefit from this initiative, which should give foreign migrants more leverage when negotiating their contracts. It will also help reduce the power of criminal organizations that connect irregular workers with farmers in need of labor.And migrant workers are essential to Italian agriculture, says Aldo Alessio, the mayor of Gioia Tauro, a strategic port town in Calabria. The inability to get seasonal workers from Eastern Europe during the crisis is threatening Italy’s agricultural sector. But that stance has been challenged amid the coronavirus pandemic. And migrants warn that the government’s decision will not necessarily help them. “We do not believe the relaunch decree will solve the problem of labor exploitation in agriculture,” he says, stressing that the issue is the outcome of unsustainable sales prices imposed by big processing brands and supermarket chains.“The real problem is that the attention is only on growers’ economic needs, [and] that hides human beings who are [used] as farm workers,” says Gennaro Avallone, a sociology researcher at University of Salerno in southwest Italy. Konare, from Mali, is one of those. In the ghetto in the small town of   Taurianova, for example, about 150 people had to manage without drinking water, toilets, or garbage collection during the pandemic, says Giorgia Campo of the trade union USB Calabria. So the Italian government has decided to allow some of the estimated 600,000 irregular migrants working in the sector to legalize their status with a temporary residency to prevent crops from rotting in the fields.“We need to consider this as a first step for broader cultural changes in our country,” says Paolo Pezzati of Oxfam Italia. Some have been in the country for years but no longer have a valid residency permit, if they ever did.Mr. Without the labor force of immigrant farm workers, agricultural productivity in our region would be zero.” 
 The bulk of the irregular migrants who work in Italy’s agriculture sector hail from Africa. The southern European nation is keeping its ports closed to rescue ships loaded with migrants and asylum seekers from Libya. It has agreed to allow farm hands and domestic workers to legalize their status with a residency valid for six months, thereby both addressing Italy’s employment gap and improving the employment and healthcare opportunities available to migrants amid the pandemic.Editor’s note: As a public service,   all our coronavirus coverage   is free. And the question of what to do with unauthorized migrant farmers and caregivers caused acrimony between the governing coalition parties as they finalized a €55 billion ($60 billion) stimulus package.Italian nongovernmental and civil society organizations have long called for a change to the country’s migration policy, asking for regular channels to access work permits and renewals. Mr. “Italians do not want immigration; even to rent a house is a problem. Campo is among many who hoped the government would pass a sweeping emergency residence permit, normalizing the situation of irregular migrants across sectors, allowing them access to health care and thus controlling the spread of COVID-19. Basel, Switzerland; and Rome
The heart of Italy’s agricultural sector is concentrated in the southern regions of Calabria and Puglia, the country’s “toe” and “heel” respectively, in fields of tomatoes, lettuce, and orange trees. He says he normally works seven days per week, earning a day rate of €35 ($38) for seven hours of work. She says she is bitterly disappointed. “I don’t know if I will work again, the boss didn’t call me anymore,” he says. Ms. “This decree cannot be considered as a regularization, the people who will benefit from it throughout Italy will be at most 2,000,” she says, citing an estimate issued by the farmers’ association Coldiretti. The closure of borders across Europe has left Italy with a shortage of the seasonal workers it needs to bring in its crops. He arrived in Italy five years ago when he was 17 years old. Italian policy-making, he adds, is strongly influenced by propaganda and frequent polling, which often mirrors racist attitudes.

Italy has long been at the heart of Europe’s debates over migration, and has been markedly hostile to migrants in recent years. “We need to consider this as a first step for broader cultural changes in our country,” he says. Migrants in the area found it largely impossible to keep social distance or hygiene rules. … “In the COVID-19 era, what is needed is that no one remains invisible.”But while the move is a significant step for Italy, experts say that the underlying systemic problems that make cheap, exploitable labor necessary in Italian agriculture still need to be addressed.“The real problem is that the attention is only on growers’ economic needs, [and] that hides human beings who are [used] as farm workers,” says Gennaro Avallone, a sociology researcher at University of Salerno.

Why We Wrote This

Broad, deep-seated distrust – even hostility – toward a social or ethnic group can be hard to change. “The agricultural productivity of the Calabria region is currently largely guaranteed by underpaid migrant workers without rights,” he says. No paywall.But while the move is a significant step for a country that has been markedly hostile to migrants in recent years, experts and migrant advocates say that it is only a small step in a much longer journey. Nobody accepts me.”Essential to Italian agricultureItaly has long been at the heart of Europe’s debates over migration. And without those extra workers, the prospect of fields full of rotten tomatoes and unpicked citrus fruits loomed.That has prompted the Italian government to rethink its frequently antagonistic approach to the estimated 600,000 irregular migrants working in its agriculture sector. But his contract, which expired and wasn’t renewed amid the coronavirus pandemic, stated that he worked only five days per month. 
 Paolo Pezzati, Oxfam Italia’s humanitarian policy adviser, welcomes the government initiative as a step in the right direction, but regrets that it does not also reach irregular migrants working in other sectors such as construction or tourism. Although no longer in power, the right-wing League party remains the country’s largest party and owes much of its popularity to a tough line on migration. But could pragmatic need, say due to shortages caused by a global pandemic, start the ball rolling? Loading… Konare has little faith that the six-month amnesty for unauthorized migrants will help improve his situation in practical terms or meaningfully shift public opinion. Guido de Togni, cultural manager at Funky Tomato, an agricultural cooperative trying to ensure fair conditions along the tomato supply chain, also thinks the government has much left to do. He notes that about 40% of the agricultural work force in Italy is irregular, and that Italian laborers are often pressured to take low wages on the grounds that migrants are willing to work for less. And in a normal year at about this time, seasonal workers from Eastern Europe would be working in those fields to bring the produce to market.But the coronavirus pandemic has made this far from a normal year – especially in Italy, one of Europe’s worst affected countries. Often single men, they live in improvised cardboard or plastic sheet homes packed into ghettos or shanty towns with miserable hygiene conditions, and work for a day rate in the fields of southern Italy.
