The images are from Belfast, Ireland, in the area that is known as where the Troubles took place. I took the bus from Dublin to Belfast, to attend a political walking tour. I arrived early and took a few photos of the murals on Divis Street.
The 26th Annual La Posada Sin Fronteras on December 14th, 2019, at the San Ysidro border crossing in the United States, and at Playas de Tijuana, Mexico. One of the largest crossing in the US, an area of the great movement of people, trade, and controversy.
The meaning of the Posada is reflecting on Joseph and Mary search for a place to sleep and to rest. As the Christmas story states, they were turned away at every count. This year's La Posada Sin Fronteras is dedicated to community and calls for us to reflect on uniting as opposed to divide and turn away those in need, especially the most vulnerable, as the migrant children held in detention centers.

Inside a gated and restricted area of the Port of Pozzallo lies the remains of refugee boats. The boats are not seaworthy and it's hard to believe that refugees and migrants even make it to the Italian shores at all. Pozzallo is a Hotspot for receiving refugees by sea.
The most recent of irregular migrants arrived in Pozzallo on November 24th, 2018, the unfit boat carried 264 passengers from Libia. You can still see some of the objects left behind on the fishing boat.
