Protestors including African migrants symbolically blockaded Catania Port in Sicily this morning in protest at the imminent arrival of the ship chartered by the far-right group, Defend Europe.

A flotilla of kayaks, canoes, boats and dinghies adorned with banners proclaiming “CLOSED FOR RACISTS” and “STOP THE ATTACK ON REFUGEES” converged just off the Sicilian shoreline, hoping to pressure Italian authorities to block the vessel’s arrival.

Defend Europe’s ship, the C-Star, is currently just off the coast of Cyprus after being detained for the second time in its short mission.
