On June 24th several Facebook users criticised the fact that many migrants from the Aquarius boat had thrown away clothes and towels donated to them by the Red Cross.
The clothes were found in a dumpster in Cheste’s Educational Complex, where many of the migrants have been housed until they have finalised their asylum applications.
This, despite the fact that the very first night in Spain, some migrants were spotted at a restaurant in Cheste paying for drinks using €100 bills.
Even the younger migrants, who were housed in a student residence in Alicante as we previously reported, were spotted going out to party on their first night, despite Liberal Spanish commentators stating that they were in “shock” and “traumatised” due to the crossing from Libya.
As can be seen in the photo, the containers are overflowing with rejected clothes, towels and blankets distributed by the Red Cross — some care packages are even intact and their contents are listed as “1 track suit, 1 t-shirt, 1 pair of socks, 1 underwear”.
The local residents are incensed about the absolute lack of gratitude these supposedly “stressed” immigrants demonstrate with the generosity shown by the Red Cross.
