Richard Gere called on the Italian government to stop demonizing migrants.

The well-known actor Richard Gere and the Minister of the Interior of Italy, Matteo Salvini, exchanged words and criticism this Saturday in an unusual scuffle.

It had nothing to do with some Hollywood movie or the crisis going through the Italian government that could lead to snap elections.

The reason, in fact, was sailing hundreds of miles off the coast of Italy.

The Open Arms ship, of the Spanish homonymous NGO, has been for more than a week near the Italian island of Lampedusa with 160 migrants on board, waiting for a European country to authorize a port.
