Refugees protest against ‘monotonous’ Italian food

Several dozen refugees in the Veneto province of Belluno, Italy,  have been protesting the fact that they are being given the food of the land they are currently inhabiting.

Sam, a migrant from Gambia who has been staying at a centre on the outskirts of Rome for almost a year, told The Local that the food, which mainly consists of pasta, “is not good” and that some have started making their own meals.

“We need the diet from our country,” he said.

It seems to me that a solution presents itself. Two solutions, in fact:

1) Go back to “our country.”

2) If you want to stay in Italy, accept that *Italy* is “our country.”

    Also refugees in Belgium, have similar complains

    Allot of refugees complains on “Diet” of daily fries
    And moslem ones freak out, if they hear that Belgium fries sometimes are boiled in pig fat.

    Sorry but if you come to Belgium, you have to life with the gruesome consequences…

      What is it that the “refugees” supposedly are fleeing from? Especially if their home countries are sufficiently free that Belgium can run advertisements in the local media …

      How is it that these people can claim “refugee” status? Or are they simply what we in the U.S. would call “illegal aliens”?

        My definition of the difference:
        Refugee: “If I don’t leave right now, I’m going to die.”
        Migrant: “Man, this place sucks. I wonder if it’s better over there.”

      I could eat those right now…with gravy…

  • Option Three: Open a restaurant to “show them how it’s done” and capitalize on the inferiority of Italian food, or a niche market with a underserviced palate. Option three has the advantage of elevating one from refugee to productive member of the community…and has the potential to make one some money.

      You’re suggesting that the refugees actually *work*? What are you, some kinda racist???

      Option 4: Become wealthy enough to have meals flown in from whatever shit-hole you came from.

    beggars can be choosers. See “culturally sensitive” meal mandates in food stamp programs.
