Humanity Of Brindisi (1991) Day (for info)

Description: "They are just hungry and cold - help them" - Giuseppe Marchionna, Mayor of Brindisi.

Short thread on events of 7 March 1991, when the 90,000 people of Brindisi woke up to find 25,000 Albanians roaming the streets of their town. For perspective, that's roughly equivalent to 25k people suddenly landing in Hastings (h/t @fcbaribrit for reminding me of this episode)>
