Rome: Where Migrants Face Eviction as Fascists Find a Home

Very happy to finally see this long read published by The New York Review of Books. In late November, Caitlin L. Chandler and I spent 9 days in Rome visiting squats in abandoned buildings to try to understand the impact of Italy's far-right government on refugees and migrants. What we saw shook us to our core; thousands of people living in abandoned buildings, some without sanitation, electricity or safety. No place was worse than the penicillin factory, where people slept among trash and chemicals. As the Italian government tries to dismantle the asylum system, thousands more people will be pushed onto the streets, and fascist groups are gaining strength. This is the story, out today in the NY Review of Books.
