Racism is a crime

Hi everyone,

I am writing this post because I do really feel the urge to speak up for what’s going on in these days in Minneapolis.

We all read the news, and we’ve all seen the awful and shameful video and heard about the following death of George Floyd. RIP. And today the arrest of reporters and journalists!

We are in 2020 and honestly this is not acceptable. And not just in US. Everywhere.

I will never get tired repeating that science had proved it! We all belong to only ONE human RACE. I invite you to read the studies done by Luca Cavalli Sforza. Einstein also confirmed it. And we all should know it, but people, especially in United States still go on speaking about races! We are not dogs or horses! We are human beings, and as persons, science has proved it, studying our DNA and DNA differences that races do not exist! There is only ONE HUMAN RACE.

So I would take this occasion also to invite all you Americans to ask for the abolition of the word “races” and “race” from papers, any paper or documents. Because it is simply nonsense. We are all mixtures on this planet and you cannot divide people because of the color of their skin and shades of color or any other nonsense! Take for instance the example of Indila (Adila Sedraïa) the singer (I have her first album and it is stunning) she was born in Paris and she is of Algerian, Egyptian, Indian and Cambodian descent and she speaks French, English, Arabic and Hindi!

You cannot put people into cages and labels!

Millions of people cannot be idenitified in one specific nationality! Myself also going backward from my father side, I go back to Nice and France! So yes I am Italian but also belong the world. We all belong to this world! And the color of the skin is like the color of the hair or of the eyes. It means nothing, seriously, scientifically speaking.

And going backward and backward … I remind you that continents were attached. We all descend from the same group of people. This is science and hystory even if some people prefer to think otherwise.

So we must all condemn racism and any behaviour that is due to this shameful idea that some people are superior to others or better, or different … Wrong!

We are all equal on this planet and we all deserve same respect, and we do all have same dignity!

So condemning all forms of racisms I invite you to do the same.

Any discrimination is wrong. Remember this.

We all must build a world as Martin Luther King was dreaming, where character is what makes the difference, not the colour of the skin.

We are all equal. And we must apply this statement every day in our daily lives. Condemning all abuses, even just verbal abuses and offenses.

And also we must condemn violence.

Remeber, as Martin Luther King was saying: as darkness cannot fight darkness, and only light can do, we must oppose to racism love and equality and not another racism in the opposite way.

Let’s make this world a better place.

Starting from the “man in the mirror”. Ourselves. Let’s change anger into compassion. Hate into understanding. Violence into education and dialogue.

A big hug to you all.

Take care of yourself and always spread love, forgivness and compassion.

 

love

 

 

 

Easter, death in the Mediterranean sea

What is Easter?

And what is it in 2020?

 

vignetta

(continue to keep the distance)

 

Yesterday morning I could not stop crying, yes. Saturday evening there was a message of help. 4 rubber dinghies in need of help in the Mediterranean sea. Saturday. 250 people.

Easter morning again the news. They found one who sank. People died. Only a few people remaining. They had given on Saturday their exact position. One rubber dinghy was with 72 people, one with 47, one with 55 and one with 85. They contacted the Alarm Phone service and the Sea Watch said it clearly.

Still today no one is rescuing them! The survivals! Many died in the water, the 85 of one of the four. Is this humanity? Just tell me. To know that people need help, but let hours and hours and hours before getting to check on them again, so that many are dead!

And now no one is going to save them! A little ONG boat left Siracusa to get there this morning, but they were redirected elsewhere for another help call toward Spain.

So who is going to save now these people who are in the water? More than 80 hours abandoned in the sea!

2020 humanity is really lost. Where people do have their heart?

Also on the 7th of April it has been signed in Italy a decree that is against the constitution and international laws with the excuse of the lockdown and the Covid19. So closing the harbours just to certain boats, but not to all. Trying to find a legal aliby not to save lives! I am so ashamed of my country, Italy!

There is so a letter written by Medici Senza Frontiere, Mediterranea Saving Humans, Open Arms and Sea-Watch (all ONG), a letter to the Commissioner for Human Rights of the European Counsil to condemn this decree against humanity and human rights.

Alan Kurdi boat rescued 150 people, no one let them down since Monday, left desperately in front of our shore. Only yesterday they gave food to them, still on the boat, sent the Red Cross, and they will be transferred after the quarantine on board, to Germany.

“How many more deaths do you want on your conscience, European rulers? To you, and the Maltese and Italian governments in particular, it would have taken a moment to choose to save these lives and not turn away. Would it have been in your possibilities to save them? YES, in a few hours. Did you know where they were and that they were dying? YES. Would saving them have compromised someone’s health and safety? NO. You chose to let them die.
There are three other naval assets that are at risk of shipwreck. President Conte, Ministers De Micheli, Lamorgese and Speranza, you have to send the Coast Guard to help them, immediately. You know where they are. Do not make the horrendous crime of failing to rescue them weigh on your consciences and our country.?”
This message from Mediterranean Saving Humans about what I mentioned before.
Do you know that now in Lybia they are bombing? Tripoli! Hospital! So where these people escaping from lagers were supposed to go?
No more also running water. The situation in Lybia is escalating. And we all know of tortures and deaths in the centres.
So what?
I am ashamed of my government!
I am ashamed of Europe.
Even Carola Rackete spoke against this lack of humanity in Europe.
Please share this post.
Even with Covid19 we cannot let people die in the sea! Knowing exactly how many and where they were and doing nothing.
An Easter of blood yesterday.
85 people, the ones of the 4th boat. And now the others? Who is going to save them????
For the moment no one.
They are in the water, it is more than 80 hours. How long can they resist on them? Where is humanity!
ONLY ONE HUMAN RACE, WE ARE ALL BROTHERS!

CHILD MARRIAGE IS CHILD RAPE

Hi everyone.

I felt the urge to write this article today because I still read horrendous words about this subject. Child marriage.

We are in 2020, where life average lenght has gone of course higher, up to even more than 100 years in some few cases. So there is no reason today to accept this abominius anywhere on earth.

Children have their rights to have a childhood! And even if with poverty the childhood is already a time of misery and sorrow, this is not an excuse to authorise this shameful thing of child marriage. That should be called with its name: child rape!

I am attaching a video that is very clear about it and regards Iran. But the problem, if you see the video, is also in many other countries, they are quoted.

And it is not a matter of religion or Islam or whatever! It is a matter of HUMAN RIGHTS and CHILDREN RIGHTS.

Marriage should not be imposed or forced, not even by the parents. And children have not the mental age to decide for their  future. They deserve to play games of their age, and not being raped by men 40 and more years oldern than them! Disgusting!

This is a shame! Children rights on this planet are a must!

As it is the right of education and going to school for all! Also for little girls! Because again TRUE EQUALITY is not a matter of religion, but a matter of HUMAN RIGHTS that are the same for everyone on this planet!

We all belong to only ONE HUMAN RACE and we should be all EQUAL in front of the law with no discriminations of any kind! Not even of GENDER!

And children are INNOCENT and they deserve to remain children till 18 years old! Because they deserve their childhood! And to get mature to become responsible for their own life and choices alone! No one should decide their destiny! You do not give birth to a child to have a slave! Or a source of money when you sell them for a marriage! Shame on those parents! I am sorry if they do it because they are poor, but this is not the solution and won’t ever be!

CHILDREN DESERVE THEIR CHILDHOOD AND INNOCENCE PRESERVED!

Please watch the video and share this important massage. AND REMEMBER THAT IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RELIGION BUT WITH HUMANITY!

And people are not slaves or objects to be sold! A girl is not a jewel you can sell in the market! She is a person! She deserves respect! And she will be in charge of her life when adult but no one should dare decide for her such an important life choice as marriage!

Please share this article to create an awarness about this subjects. For poor families the solution is not making babies to sell when grown up!

HUMANITY and HUMAN RIGHTS for ALL

and CHILD MARRIAGE is nothing but CHILD RAPE! And you all know it. Whoever does not condemn it is a shame for this world. And it is not a matter of religion, but respect for CHILDREN!

Thanks again for reading me.

Please do share.

Take care.

 

TODAY a LIVE VIDEO to REQUEST to OUR GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS for IMMIGRANTS

We made today a live video with different associations to discuss about how to ask our government for documents to all the immigrants that are here, but are without. Around 600.000 people. They deserve dignity.

We all belong to one only single race: only 1 human race for all.

The new slavery of 2020 in Italy

Dear all,

I do not know from which country you will be reading me,

so first of all, I am very sorry for this Coronavirus or Covid19 going around.

It is killing thousands of people worldwide.

Just here, in Italy we are now at more than 10.000 deaths.

Also the problem are all those countries who will never tell the real number of deaths. And there are many that are not democracies where true information is a dream. Shame on them, because knowledge and the truth are a must to be shared with no censorship nor any hiding reality.

For sure this Covid19 is teaching us who are surviving and maybe (life is not a certainty for anyone) will survive many important lessons.

The first one actually concerns humanity and our concept of humanity.

Because the virus knows no borders nor differences in the color of the skin or the religion or gender … anything. And so rich people cannot avoid getting it, no matter how rich or how they think they can escape isolating themselves.

The virus is spread not just through people, but also surfaces, even from below our shoes, it travels. It can remain on cardboard for 24 hours, on metal and plastic it can survive even 3 days! And on clothes 3 hours roughly.

So no one could really consider himself safe.

Even Boris Johnson got it, he who was the first one mocking the pandemia, saying he didn’t want to do any lockdown … waiting for the herd immunity in UK … (impossible because no vaccination exists yet, so that would have meant a bloodbath). His father interviewed also saying he wanted still to go to the pub if he had to. Such a shame. Especially because we saw it here in Italy and we learnt the lesson.  So sorry for Britain because I’ve lived in London for 4 years between 2008 and 2012, so I left a little bit of my heart even there. And now we see him asking also US for ventilators … And so many cases already … They should have shut down everything earlier. We proved the world how fast it spreads. No. He didn’t listen. Easy to play with people lives.

And similar shame on US. Trump was again uderstimating the issue. And now their solution is even crazier at this point: a law selection of who should be entitled to be saved and who is not. This reminds me of the Nazi and the Fascists who were sending people to die because they were for instance with a physical handicap. Same thing is doing Trump with a law that is already written and signed in many states in US.

So who has a disability or a desease that is already a body complication should not even be treated but just let die. You heard correctly. 2020 humanity completely lost.

And also the criteria seems to be even worse, because they will decide who is worthy saving with criteria that are just not belonging to this planet. Humanity completely lost.

And already 2 days ago when they let a teenager, he was 17, die because the first hospital refused to help him. He maybe could have been saved. He was going to another hospital because this is what they shamefully told him, and had an heart attack on the way. He was perfectly healthy, but the problem with Covid19 is that it affects the lungs, so the impossibility to breath normally ends up with the heart that stops beating, because the heart as the whole body, needs oxygen. Such a shame! This is why ventilators are a must, because if the body is not able to breathe by itself, the machines do this for it.

And in the US they are discussing also the chance not to resuscitate anyone, who like this poor guy goes into heart attack. Killers!

Every person on this planet should be saved! And how many people worldwide had heart attacks? Are they all dead? Not at all. So saving life is compulsory!

Shame on America and shame on the states that are already having this law so they can let people die of Covid19 because not fit enough to deserve to be saved. SHAME!

What I wanted to talk today about is actually something a bit different.

What is happening?

We are all stuck. No jobs, no work, everything closed … So goverment starting to think how to help people and companies. Already dediced to give money to people, like 300 euro per family, and vouchers to buy food … So they are taking care for all cathegories of workers … 600 euro per person are given to some categories of workers who of course now cannot work …

All categories except the last one. Immigrants.

This is why I am talking in the title about slavery and racism.

Who is taking care of fruits and vegetables to make us have them fresh daily to buy in supermarkets?

Immigrants in South of Italy. But as I said Covid19 is not racist, it can hit anyone.

The horrible thing is that these poor persons with no regular documents are sleeping in slums with not even running water. And we speak these days about washing hands frequently. So what if the virus spreads there were they are so many living in slavery conditions?

What happened today in Portugal is impressive: they have decided to make all people who are irregular immigrants regular, giving them documents and finally a dignity and a possibility to be treated like all other citizens.

So why cannot we do the same?

Even the famous Roberto Saviano wrote an article about it. Portugal did the right thing.

We had Salvini at the government before and he did 2 terrible laws called decreti sicurezza, those actually threw hundreds of immigrants in the streets because they removed their humanitarian protection. Such a shame!

So now, that finally we have my political party PD (Partito Democratico) at the government together with the 5 Stelle party … those laws are still there, and people are still in the streets! Now helped by volunteering associations and in the various cities there are beds and food given but still, no dignity, no documents, no rights, not for the present nor for the future because without the documents no one is entitled to work legally!

So I am asking: are these still human beings? People?

And also the persons who work in the food industries, who pick up our tomatoes … why shouldn’t they have a dignity and proper documents, and proper places where to sleep with running water?

Still just some empty words, but nothing done.

I am saying it on Facebook in Italian, I am saying it here in English, slavery in 2020 exists, and people are not considered all the same, with same dignity.

I am very upset. We should do immediate laws to protect these persons. We all belong to only one human race on this planet. So why not caring also for the pooerst, and the forgotten? The ones who with no real documents every day kill themselves in the fields to provide our fruits and vegetables. And also the other homeless in the various cities … why not giving them documents and a dignity and a possibility when all this will end to try to have a normal life? Without documents nothing is possible. So why not doing like Portugal did?

I am so ashamed of how humanity is getting lost in these days, and how racism is coming out, more and more, in this crazy fight for survival, where actually there should be no fights, because here as a democracy we let everyone to be saved, no matter who they are, if they have documents or job or not, no matter anything. In hospitals here everyone is saved. But still there are people who are not regular with no documents and less dignity.

What politcs should do is giving people dignity and documents, to be treated as people and not slaves, with same rights as workers, and same rights of having a house where to sleep and not get the Covid19 because of a life and working conditions that are just not human.

We must end this slavery. NOW.

I ask you to share this article. We have to make our Italian government do something now. Their lives are at risk because of the Covid19 and the conditions they are working and living. And everyone who is without documents should get them.

please

Thanks to you all

All the best

Keep isolated. Keep distance. Take care of yourself and the others. We cannot save ourselves alone, we must do it all together.

8 th of March 2020

Women’s day.

What about the planet?

How and where are we in 2020?

We are still so far from same rights to women wordlwide. And true respect to women. Rapes, domestic violence, murders … So many, worldwide and no real equality yet.

And not just in some countries where you could expect it more because of not real democracies, but also in Europe.

Here in Italy there are already 15 women killed since the beginning of the year by ex husbands or boyfriends … horrific.

Today worldwide, all women stand for their rights.

And I wanted especially to remember Nasrin Sotoudeh, the Iranian advocate who now is in jail just because as a lawyer she was defending women rights, and in particular their right of not to wear compulsorly a veil on theri head. 38 years she must spend in jail. And the world is no more speaking about her but her husband and family and all of us want and demand her free!!!! The veil should be a free choice!

Nasrin-Sotoudeh ok

Another women I would like to remember today is Benazir Bhutto who was murdered. The first women Prime Minister in Pakistan. RIP. And today the big march that was held in Lahore, Islamabad … is proof that women are strong, and women have a voice, and in Pakistan they deserve all their full rights. I stand with all feminists worldwide where the word feminist means simply asking and believing in same rights men and women with enough of discriminations.

benazir

And from Pakistan also I would like to remember today the brave Malala Yousafzai whose book I invite you to read: shot by the talibans, she is fighting for the right of education for all girls not just in Pakistan. Nobel prize and corageous young women.

Malala

And from Pakistan rest in peace to Sana Cheema and Hina Saleem, two Pakistani and Italian girls murdered by their families who did not want them to live the life they wanted. RIP. Every year in Pakistan more than 1000 honor killings who stay unpunished. Even Sana father and brother will be released soon from jail. Such a shame! Things should change. Watch the movie What will people say. To understand this.

And then another hero, a young Palestinian paramedic, that most of you maybe already forgot, with time passing bye, shot dead despite wearing the doctor uniform. She was intentionally killed by Israeli military forces. A shame to remind us how much Nethanyau is a criminal and should be stopped. All the Hafrada should be stopped: that horrific Apartheid Palestinians are living with water, electricity … all limited, and land taken away, buildings destroyed, documents revocked as well as all rights … Imprisonments without any lawyers or court. Children also jailed … Such a shame. And the world stays silence. It was good that lots of Israeli people went in the streets to protest next to their Palestinian brothers, but still nothing has happened. Shame on Nethanyau.

Razan al Najjar

I also would like to remember the person who inspired the amazing movie The right to count, that I invite you all to watch because it is the true story of this extraordinary lady who let the men go to the moon with also her maths calculations. Katherine Johnson, who died this year at the age of 101 years. RIP. A true inspiration for all women.

And then there are so many other women who should be remembered today for a reason or another.

Another one I would love to mention is Nadia Murad who also got Nobel prize. She belongs to the Yazidis minority, she was abducted by Isis in her homeland Sinjar in 2014, and as a slave then managed to escape advocating now for survivors and now President and Chairwoman of Nadia’s Initiative, which is working for the redevelopment of the Yazidi homeland.

Nadia

Then also a special thought to Silvia Romano, italian volunteer still not free, she was abducted in Kenya in 2019. Still hoping to free her.

And then I cannot mention a great women Michelle Obama. An amazin person.

Michelle_Obama_(30343251332)

And then there are so many activists …

I would mention Samar Badawi, sister of jailed blogger Raif Badawi. She was given the US International Women of Courage Award in 2012 because she challenged the Saudi Arabia’s male guardianship system. Now she is still in jail and still alive. She must be free! The world silence is so heavy! Women rights there are zero because without the tutor a women cannot do anything. Samar was one of the first women to drive in 2011. That is one step forward now, but still so much to be done to free women there! And she and her brother must be free! They did nothing wrong! Women rights are a must everywhere on this planet! We are all equal!

samar ok

And I will finish with another women, politician that maybe went unnoticed: Sahle-Uork Zeudé first Ethiopia female president.

Etiopia

And my last thought goes to Syria and the people stuck at the border with Greece where as Europe we’ve lost our humanity. They have no food nor water, nor shelter. And they cannot go back. They die of cold … and Greek police are shoting them! And also fascists greek groups are assaulting them too, not just the Greek tear gases.

I saw recently a documentary you all should see:

For Sama. Syrian filmmaker Waad al-Khateab.

Here the trailer.

 

To understand that Assad is a criminal, and he bombed with Russia hospitals, schools … even now in 2020. And in the past also chemical weapons … Jailed and made people disappear … Tortures, killings with no respect for no one.

The world should all condemn him for crimes against humanity but apparently his money have more power, despite being full of blood. And what Erdogan is doing with Syrian refugees is also horrible.

I know I am missing so many other names from Greta Thunberg to the journalist Rula Jebreal who did a moving speach at Sanremo 2020 about the violence against women, being her mother the first victim … To Rosa Parks …

To all of you I say: let’s all speak up. All of us. We are more than 50% of the population worldwide. We cannot stay silent! And we must speak also for the women whose voices remain unheard.

You might think that is a matter that does not concern you: you are wrong.

And last word about the movement #metoo. So tough subject, but we all must speak. Always.

Because we are not inferior. We are EQUAL and WE DESERVE SAME RIGHTS FOR EVERYTHING AND SAME RESPECT no matter the color of our skin or our religion … We are all equal on this planet! Equal to men, equal!!!!!!

I leave you with this stunning video about women power. Recharge your batteries and let’s go back to the world for more women power!

Big hug to you all sisters worldwide. You will never be alone.

And a special last thought also to all transgender women who feel themselves as women. Also for them same rights and respect!

Lgbt rights are also such a difficult subject still for too many countries. I will always stand for your rights too. Because as Rosa Parks was remembering us we must stand (in her case remain seated) for what is right, no matter what. Because what is right is right even if there are not yet laws to state it.

Big hug to you all. Stay strong. Stay focused. Dream and live! And yes we can!

Take care you all.

Barbara

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ashes Wednesday

Dear all,

today is Ashes Wednesday,

so for all of you who are celebrating … I wish you a happy beginning of this Lent season.

The 40 days before Easter.

A period of reflection, of self improvement and some sacrifices to do, maybe something we can avoid, some food habits we can change … and a soul recharging and rebirth.

Just to arrive well prepared to the Holy Easter. This year Easter will be on the 12th of April.

So still just the beginning of this Lent to start.

But I would like you all to take a moment to reflect.

Today with the Ashes Wednesday, we remind us all that we are going to go back to ashes one day.

So it is very important to reflect about our own life in a very humble way.

What are we seeking in this life? Money? Power? Success?

None of these things could truly give us real happiness.

Only love can. Only true love is able to enrich our souls. Love to give, love to share, love to have in our hearts also and especially in response to people who throw hate to us, who insult us, who show no respect.

Easy to reply to hate with hate, but to reply with love is the real challenge. Not to argue back, but replying with compassion and true love is the challenge.

Love your enimy. This is what Jesus asked us.

And when people question our religion, Jesus said that the only way people will spot our faith is through love (not from a cross or any other pointless dress code). From the love we will share, people will know we are Jesus disciples.

Because love is the essence of Christian religion.

Only one commandment Jesus gave us:

To love God with all our heart, soul and mind, and love our neighbor, as we love ourselves.

Full stop. All starts and ends with love. With love as the only rule for each of our behaviors.

And, as Martin Luther Kings reminded us, the only way to scatter darkness, is not with other darkness, but with light. Same with hate: only love can truly win hate. Always.

Love is stronger than anything else. Love will have the last word.

And it is fear that makes all so difficult everytime. Fear as the opposite of love. Win it with love.

And love is the love of compassion and understanding. Love is the love of forgivness and care.

Because we are all children of God on this planet. We all belong to only one human race. One race only.

So let’s together stop all hate and discriminations around. None of us is superior or better. We are all on a personal pathway in this life.

Let us become the better versions of ourselves.

Be good, do good. And it will all come back in return in a life of true happiness when the true joy comes from giving.

Take care you all

God bless you all

Happy Ashes Wednesday and beginning of Lent.

 

ash-wednesday

All the best

Coronavirus – Italy

I have made this post few weeks ago.

Now situation has drammatically change. WE ALL MUST ACT NOW TO STOP IT.

Read this article in full to understand why.

So do not go out from home if not necessary, and prevent it from spreading. It spreads also through surfaces and simple contact of surfaces and then touching of mouth, eyes and nose.

Please wash your hands frequently and disinfect also your mobile too.

20 seconds for handwash.

Keep 1 metre distance with each other. Avoid crowds. No gathering of people. No parties, nor clubs. STAY HOME!

It is a sacrifice but the consequences are what we are having now in Italy: more than 6000 deaths, when at the beginning were just few, we thought trackable cases.

PLEASE LISTEN!

And even who is in good health must STAY HOME because we are all ourselves also responsible for the spread of the virus, even if we do not have it.

Here a complete article, well done. Below after this link is my old post I have ketp. But be updated. WE ALL MUST STOP ANY ACTIVITY AND ALL STAY HOME. Going out only for what strictly necessary. THANKS

 

View at Medium.com

Dear all,

I guess this article is a necessity.

Worldwide everyone is talking about Coronavirus N-19 (Covid-19). It seems to be the only issue that matters these days on the planet.

I am here, in Florence, Italy, where one case has been confirmed, another 2 under check.

And you know in Italy now there is a general panic everywhere, despite the fact that the two focus points are only two cities in Lombardia Region, in the North.

The worst scenario is only in Northern Italy, and you should all know this because some flights have been blocked, and people from Northern Italy checked before entering any other countries.

So what is really happening?

There have been many coronavirus in the past, what makes the difference with this one here? This one, called N-19, some people say wrongly that it has been created in China.

From animals to human, and not created in a laboratory … the fact is that from Wuhan it has spread worldwide.

And in Italy we have 12 deaths at the moment.

Mortality rate is very low (lower than 1%), even lower than other flue viruses that were around in past years, but with the news also panic has spread, and actually more panic spread more quickly than the real virus risks and death probabilities.

Like all other flue viruses before, viruses can lead to death the people who are already experimenting a difficult clinical health condition: chemio, and cancer patients, old people with already some other health issues. But more than 80 out of 100  people who catch it, recover by themselves. For example:  over 100 people 80 recover easily, 15 recover with some lungs complications that need specific hospital care and antibiotics (pneumonia cases). So why all this panic? Even a few weeks old newborn in China recovered alone with not even medicines necessary.

Reports say that in 85-90% of cases, the infection remains light, 10-15% severe, and only 5% critical. With lower than 1% the death percentage.

So what is recemmended is normal hygiene practices like washing hands, and using a sanitizer if necessary, but water and soap for 20 seconds is enough.

Not touching eyes and mouth after touching any surface, and disinfect surfaces to avoid the virus to stay there and pass from one person to another, but with no paranoids.

Here people just got crazy: started to empty supermarkets, stocking food worse than if there was a war. Madness.

Recommendations are normal hygiene practises also when coughing or sneezing to use an handkerchief, or coughing in the arm, and if on the hand, then of course disinfect the hand before touching others or surfaces, and self care if you are not well of course.

There are specific landline phone number not to make people rush to first aid places, with the risk of more spreading.

On the phone, already from the questions asked, it would be easy to spot other health issues different from this one. Some symtomps are very similar to all other normal flues.

So to all I say no panic!

Of course if you have flue, and your cough becomes severe with breathing difficulties, antibiotics are necessary and also a prompt doctor check, because lungs are the most affected organ of this flue/virus. And also breathing issues that should be taken with real care and true attention immediately. But with the pneumonia of coronavirus still some medicines are being tested.

But again no panic!

This panic is truly damaging our economy. Shops and shopping malls are empty. Lots of turists bookings have been cancelled. Restaurants and bar empty …

It is a huge problem for economy and employment.

Also lots of fairs and public events like concerts, or theatre shows … cancelled.

Even football matches with no public.

A true emergency in all our country but to be lived with responsibility and no panic.

People who have no health issues should just live their lives normally.

(this is something we discovered later we cannot do, even healthy young people get it and can die)

Of course no one would sneeze in the face of anyone. So just be resonable and precautions with reasonable common sense.

Hygiene of course, but not becoming paranoid.

What about meningitis? It killed many more people in recent years. And, as I said, previous flues have done more victims, just unknown.

So no panic. And let’s hope the planet could solve these virus cases soon.

All the best to you all.

Take care

 

So as you see, weeks ago we were thinking it was something managable, it is not. And even young healty people are ding. So please STAY HOME and protect everyone.

The virus stays on cardborard for 24 hours. On metal it can survive for 3 days.

Please do take care and respect the law.

Free Patrick Zaki!

Hi everyone!

I am writing this post with a huge urgency, because he must be free now!

Do you know his story?

Patrick Zacki George is a student from Egypt. He is a student at the Bologna, Italian University.

His studies are about human rights, and also LGBT rights.

Sadly during a holiday he did back to Egypt he was arrested at the airport as soon as he landed. Accused of talking badly about Egypt abroad and going against the government and his country with his ideas and studies. He has been tortured 17 hours. Amnesty International has proof.

He risks to spend his life in jail, actually less because with the conditions of his detention he could die soon because of the abuses and tortures and dehydration and malnutrition and no health care or help he has now.

We all must raise our voice worldwide to free him now immediately!

He did nothing wrong. He is falsly accused of going against his country.

WHERE ARE HUMAN RIGHTS????? PLEASE SHARE THIS POST OR THE LINK BELOW.

HE MUST BE FREE NOW!

We already lost Giulio Regeni years ago arrested for his studies. He was doing nothing wrong. He was tortured by the government and badly killed.

We want Patrick Zaki back alive in his University in Bologna city! A free person because he did no harm to anyone and his words did not say anything wrong against Egypt.

https://www.amnesty.org/en/documents/mde12/1800/2020/en/

Please share the maximum.

The world must stand up against this shameful arrest and tortures to a student! Innocent!!!!! Where is humanity???? Tortures!!!! Detention in horrible conditions! He is risking his life! We must hurry up!!!! NOW!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!! SHARE!!!!!!

Patrick George Zaki, 28 year old Egyptian human rights activist, was abducted at Cairo International Airport upon his arrival from Bologna, Italy where he currently studies for his MD at the University of Bologna.

2) Enforcing a clear, transparent investigation regarding his abduction and torture conditions.
3) Assuring no further harassment or prosecution of Patrick nor his family members, allowing for progression with his studies.

Help us #FreePatrick

Patrick George Zaki, studente egiziano di 28 anni, è stato rapito all’aeroporto internazionale di Cairo al suo arrivo da Bologna, dove vive e studia per un master all’università. Patrick è stato torturato -anche tramite elettroshock- senza che gli venisse riportata nessuna vera accusa. Questa pagina è stata creata per fare pressione alle autorità egiziane per l’immediato rilascio di Patrick. Chiediamo globalmente a tutti di fare pressioni sul governo egiziano con queste richieste:

-L’immediato rilascio di Patrick e la caduta di tutti i capi d’accusa nei suoi confronti
-Lo svolgimento di indagini trasparenti sulle cause dietro il suo rapimento e le torture che ha subito
-La garanzia che né Patrick né i membri della sua famiglia siano nuovamente accusati

Aiutaci! #PatrickLibero
