"La prima schiavitù è la frontiera. Chi dice frontiera, dice fasciatura.
Cancellate la frontiera, levate il doganiere, togliete il soldato, in altre parole siate liberi.
La pace seguirà." (Victor Hugo)
"Se voi avete il diritto di dividere il mondo in italiani e stranieri allora io reclamo il diritto di dividere il
mondo in diseredati e oppressi da un lato, privilegiati e oppressori dall’altro.
Gli uni sono la mia patria, gli altri i miei stranieri" (don Lorenzo Milani)
