Solidarity movements have had a particularly relevant role in the post 2011, which have been characterized by relevant changes in the Mediterranean space, both concerning migration routes and border management strategies. Denaro shows it particularly in the frame of Syrian migration to and throughout Europe, observing an increase of communication exchanges amongst refugees and a wide array of - old and new - listeners. The context is the insufficiency of the resettlement policies and the absence of humanitarian corridors to Europe that have forced people to challenge the European border regime.Bringing empirical references from the Greek - Turkish border, this chapter aims at analysing how the individuals and associations performing solidarity with migrants on the move have been represented by the dominant narratives in the media(as key actors in humanitarian practices), and - in some cases - legally prosecuted for smuggling related accusations.
