Please don’t judge me

Marcos, a refugee or migrant, asks us all not to judge him before getting to know him.

He fled his country at war because he wants to live without fear.

Very often, people base their opinions about refugees or migrants on generalizations and prejudices.

Please do not judge me

Please do not judge me
before knowing me.

I fled my country.
At war and too dangerous.

Living in fear.
All day, all night.

No-one could stand this.
I hope you can imagine
what kind of life I had.

So, I decided to leave.

I just want a future.
A future of peace.
A future without fear.

I am a human being.
Just like you.

I could be your neighbour.
I could be your friend.

Now, you do not know me.
Now, you think I could be a threat.
A threat to your way of life.

But, threats can appear anywhere.
They can appear anytime.

My country was stable once.
Now it is full of conflicts.

Conflicts mainly caused by
the lack of peace.
Fighting about religion,
about power, about money…

I want a future.
I want to be a good neighbour.
I want to be a good friend.

And most of all,
I want to inspire peace.
And to help my new homeland
to be peaceful and without conflicts…

Please give me a chance
and do not judge me
before knowing me.
