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.

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.

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.

 

coronavirus file per sito

 

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. Patrick was tortured and electrocuted without any true accusations. This page is to pressure the Egyptian Authorities to meet the following demands:

1) Immediate release of Patrick Zaki with all accusations dropped.
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

 

Jesus was Jewish

Hi everyone!

I am writing this article because I just read today that a church has been vandalised with also a 500 euros theft after the priest wrote on the door of the church that there lives a Jew, Jesus Christ. The theft took place in the offices of the La Loggia Caritas in Turin city.

Yes because in Italy we are having the rising back of so many racists and antisemitic fascists.

They started to vandalize doors of normal people just because of their religion: wrting on doors “here lives a Jew” with the Nazi words and symbols … Such a shame! 2020.

And in Italy 15% of Italian people do not believe that Shoah ever existed. How can it be? This is proven history. There are witnesses and survivors, concentration camps open to be visited, documents, pictures …

It is madness.

And to all who declare themselves Christians and hate Jews, it is so important to remind them that first of all they are not real Christians because Jesus taught us not to hate anyone, and second Jesus Christ was e Jew, raised as a Jew, circumcised, and grown up learning the teachings of the Judaism.

So I invite you all worldwide to stop these Nazi and this Fascism with these hashtags:

#JesusWasAJew

#JesusWasJewish

#GesùeraEbreo

A big hug to all Jews worldwide.

And let us build a world where all religions stand together in peace and harmony supporting each other.

Brexit. The sadness of a departure

Dear all,

after being on Thursday in Turin to present my novel, now at its third edition, in a famous Feltrinelli book shop, now I am back home, in Florence to think about what’s just happend today: BREXIT.

I’ve lived 4 years in London, and I remember also having known so many people from almost everywhere there.

And Brexit is such a shame.

Europe was created to give stability and more power to all countries, helping them in difficult times, a mutual support, also economical, and also on human rights, and to let people travel and move around, and get experiences, and discover the countries.

And also for commerce, to protect products and producers, to make the market stronger also toward the big giants of China but also US … and the data protections not to be stolen by the first social network or worldwide platform.

I was in London between 2008 and 2012. I’ve worked and lived there. Still got my national insurance numbero NINO.

4 years of my life, travelling back and forward every 2 months roughly.

And now?

So proud of Sadiq Khan, London Major who said that London will remain “open”. But what about reality? Also to get there?

Then I think about Scotland who would love more than ever now their own indipendence, and being in EU.

And what about Northern Ireland toward the rest of the Republic of Ireland?

And the Royal Family? Does it still make sense to have them? I mean as royals? What will happen after the Queen’s departure?

Lots of questions. Now only time will give us answers about the effects of Brexit from the economy to civilians.

The import-export? People travelling? Visa? And checks at borders?

I am so sorry for all European people who live in UK and are now kind of trapped or blocked in a reality that will be tougher.

We will see consequences little by litte.

For now I am just sorry for them.

And we will see.

 

To you all

Take care and all the best

 

See you soon

 

Barbara

PS here in the picture you can see the year. I was working managing the Nicolas Maida Vale wine shop. So many memories. Too many. Another life, another me, another time. But memories stay with us forever.

 

 

New Year, New Life

Dear all,

Happy 2020!

Sorry I’ve been a bit absent here, because life sometimes takes away the biggest part of our time … I mean living. And not stopping thinking what we are actually going through. Not stopping to think about life, the weird thing we are in, and we cannot escape from. But we can change it, and we are 100% in charge of it. We are adults. No more parents who should tell us what to do and who to be. And we’re lucky to be in societies where this truly happens. Where parents are just your friends, the best ones you could have, giving you advice, but you are a free person, an adult, with no need to follow their advice, even if sometimes they are right.

So I was just messy, messed up with my whole life. Heart issues also.

Also working, but sadly back unemployed now, so money issues too.

It is always like this. When there are issues in our lives, they are about everything, everywhere, not just in one part of it. So job, love … All together.

Anyway.

I also will be presenting my novel in the Turin Feltrinelli (piazza Castello) on the 30th of January at 6pm, you are all invited (in Italian only, we are at its third edition, already 2 literary prizes winner). Looking for agents outside Italy and also a bigger publisher for a second novel I still have it unpublished.

Every issue is a challenge, every challenge is a chance for growing, learning, improving, moving on and forward. Yes because we cannot stay still and stuck. And destiny in this is clever to always surprise us, in good or bad ways. So that our lives have to move on, one step forward, with or without our will, but we move on. We must.

And what we cannot change, we must just accept it.

Life is made of choices. Sometimes we chose right, sometimes we chose wrong. We make mistakes. Many. We fall. We wake back up again. Then we fall again, then we rise again.

We hurt and we get hurt. We heal. We forgive and forget and we are forgiven and forgotten. Some people are meant to stay for our whole life in our lives, some are not. Some are just sparkles in the night that burn out too quickly and too soon, to disappear. Some are flames that keep us warm, no matter what.

Life’s miracle is this: life is unpredictable, and everything can happen in a minute. Gains and losses. Winning or losing everything in a blink of an eye.

But we must be, always. Ourselves. Even when it hurts. Even when we would like just to disappear and fade away when all seems nonsense. Because miracles happen. And the unexpected happens. Beautiful things do happen anytime in our lives. We must just be patient. To wait. Not to settle for the wrong choices. Not to give up too quickly.

Nothing is permanet. Not even our pain. It will go away. We will heal. With time.

Time is always such a blessing. We are so lucky still to have it. Time for changing. Time for living. And time for loving ourselves. Because this is where we all should start from: ourselves.

If we do not love ourselves. If we do not forgive our mistakes, how are we supposed to be able to love the others?

We must love ourselves first, and then love others as much as we love ourselves but we cannot do the other way round. It is difficult to pour from an empty bottle.

We all do mistakes. We all are not perfect. So life starts from self understanding, self love, self care, true care and self forgivness.

So what will be new for this 2020?

Well, we all have new chapters of our life to write.

New pages to turn, and to draw, to write a new story, ours.

So do not try to copy anyone. Each of our life is different, and we all must make it a masterpiece.

So we start today, day 1. We have 365 pages to write.

No regrets. No worries. And stop caring about what other people will think, because everyone will judge us anyway. They will always say bad things about us we never did. Gossip is this. Do not care about it. Whatever they say, let them speak. You know who you are, and what you’ve done and what is in your heart and soul. So do not let anyone else dare speaking for you. Your life. Your choices, your mistakes and your steps forward in this pathway that should lead us all to the best version of ourselves. And self knowledge and awareness. Be self confident. Focus on yourself. Your life, your happiness. And when we will get inner peace, all will be looking different. But all starts from within. And remember only when the water is still, it is possible to see the bottom of the surface. Stirring the water will not make us see clear within ourselves.

Silence. Meditation. Knowing who we are. Then the world should just watch and stare.

It is our life. Now or never.

Let’s live it the fullest. And let’s make it just ours.

No regrets.

Looking forward, always.

Take care all of you

Thanks for reading me

All the best for this 2020

Strong big hug to you all, wherever you are.

And remember, at the end of the day we will be judged on the love we have spread and given. So let yourself be filled with true love to share, to multiply.

Love is always the key and the answer to everything. Let’s put it in all the things we do.

Living for love, in the name of love, every single gesture. And everything will find back its meaning. Because this is what we are alive for.

To love, to give, to be alive only when love lives in our heart.

Find also time this new year to make peace, to ask for forgivness, to forgive and forget the pain. Love wins always.

Love for ourselves, love for our Ethernal Creator, love for all mankind. We are all brothers in this little planet. Do not forget it.

Stay filled with love. Stay blessed.

Be yourself always.

We must stop Salvini now! I need your help!

Tomorrow, Monday the 5th of August 2019 there will be in the Parliament the discussion of a law that cannot be approved! (it will be the final approval in the Senate)

I am talking about the Decreto Sicurezza bis, a shameful law Salvini, minister, did to punish with a huge fine (and not just that but also the taking away of the boat, and arresting people) whoever saves lives in the Mediterranean, going this way against human rights and international laws.

Whoever is in the water, losing his life, must be saved, no matter what! This is the law of the sea, an international law for whoever is in the water and is drowning! People must be saved from death!

nave

This law is against humanity, human rights and any basic international law about the principles of being in the sea.

I am asking all the planet to stand with us against our Minister Matteo Salvini who wants this law to be approved definetly tomorrow in the Parliament.

In 1938 there were racial laws here in Italy. You know history repeats itself, but never in the same way.

Now if this law shall pass … the result would be the same as when people were imprisoned and even killed for saving and protecting Jews, who no one was supposed to be saving, and it was against the law to save them.

Please we have activists and even the Pope who spoke in favour of the last ones, the poor, the ones like the immigrants who deserve a future, a life, a chance of a tomorrow, after the horrors they’ve faced in Lybia, they do not need more hell with Salvini and a death in the water with no witnesses, or people turning their heads to another direction, not to be arrested and fined to have saved lives, people from drowning!

Please share the hashtag #nodecretosicurezzabis which is the law we must stop before it is too late!

Please tomorrow the world must shout loud that this is against humanity and should be stopped.

Let’s stop Salvini without fear, because not Italy first, but humanity first!!!!!!! And Salvini’s decreto sicurezza bis goes against humanity and human rights!

I also wrote to the Republic President, Sergio Mattarella, because he should do something to stop Salvini now.

 

Thanks again

All the best to you all

 

Take care

Please on any social media tomorrow, the 5th of August, please share the maximum the hashtag #nodecretosicurezzabis and #decretosicurezzabis to stop this “decreto” to pass in the Senate.

CAROLA RACKETE IS FREE NOW BUT …

Hi everyone!

I needed to write this article, urgently.

We are facing here in Italy something unacceptable at all!

What happened?

We have a Minister who made 2 racist laws against immigrants. With the first one they have no more the right to receive psycological support, nor Italian classes and they are also litterary kicked out from the centres where they were given a shelter and some food. And no documents for them, so just invisible ghosts, because without legal documents how can they even apply for regular legal jobs?

And if you have followed what happened with the SeaWatch and Carola Rackete, all this is just madness!

Now Salvini, our Minister, made this law that whoever saves lives in the Mediterranean is a criminal and is fined with thousands of euros to pay and their boat is taken away.

MADNESS!

Please I am beggin all the planet to stop this.

Two days ago 300 people, also children and women, have been removed from a building! A school! Also not useful now because of summer holiday! So what was the point? The school was empty. These people needed a shelter. They were just sent in the street!

While we have at the same time Casapound, that is a far right, fascist movement, whose people have been occupying a building in Rome for years, not paying electricity and nothing … and no one is kicking them out, even if they are not poor, and they do not need to stay there! And that building could be used in many other useful ways.

Also here there are so many more episodes of racism, homophobia, islamophobia, antisemits … We have become such a worse country. I feel ashamed to read articles every time on the news …

Things must be changed, now!

And Salvini now seems to be involved asking Russia money to support his political campaign he won, for the elections.

And he has told so many lies also about people sorrounding him who were the ones (Savoini) trying to make the deal with Russia. There have been found written documents who prove he is a lier.

artic now

We are asking him to reply to the parliament about the truth of what is happening and what happened for real. He is not showing up, while as a minister, he should come in the parliament to explain if he has nothing to hide.

Please we are also asking Europe to make the truth come out.

We need to get rid of him because he is against Europe and with Putin they were planning to destroy the European Union and all the economical European system.

Please help!

Thanks to you all

 

All the best
