"March 1st - A day without us" continues its commitment in defense of migrants' rights and its fight against racism and xenophobia. After the great result obtained with the 1 event in March 2010 (which saw hundreds of Italian squares colored yellow, involving more than 300 thousand people overall), the movement decided to form an association and give itself a new national coordination.
During the national assembly (which took place on Sunday 12 in September in Bologna) the need to structure itself in association was highlighted, guaranteeing at the same time maximum autonomy to the territorial committees.
The members of the new national coordination, the body in charge of coordinating the action of the individual committees, were also elected. It includes Cecile Kashetu Kyenge, Teodora Lara, Omar Laurino, Stefania Ragusa, Ilaria Sesana, Francesca Terzoni, Seble Woldeghiorghis. Cécile Kashetu Kyenge was voted as coordinator / spokesperson.
