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

Dress your skin

Hi everyone!

As I wrote you in the last post, here in Italy the political elections campaign is quite tough. We have elections on the 4th of March. ( I am member of the PD party).

The risk is also from the far right, which is in a huge coalition group, defending the “white race”. Such an absurdity when we all should remind ourselves that only one is the exisiting race: the human race!

So I would like you to shine, whatever is your skin color or shade of color!

Because this website is about fashion, so do your own fashion! Be yourself! You are amazing! All colors are beautiful God’s creation. And it is not an addition of pigmentation in the skin that should make us be looked in a bad way.

To be honest with you some days I wish I were born in a dark skin. I am really suffering all these discrimiations and hate spread in these days against immigrants who have a dark skin color. (still people praising a crazy nazi who shot six innocents a couple of weeks ago) just for the color of their skin. Now he is in jail but still people are not all condemning him but justifiying saying it is because there are too many immigrants … crazy speeches)

I have posted on Facebook a picture of myself when I was not even 18, I am sharing with you here as well.

no al razzismo

I was in a language studying trip. Education is the basis to understand world differencies but also similarites that make us anyway all brothers and sisters. There are more things that unite us than separate us. Humanity is mankind. Why discrimination? We are all human beings with same dignity and value.

Did Martin Luther King die for nothing?

A couple of days ago we had the nephew of Nelson Mandela in my home town, Florence. We built a cell-like space. To remind us where Mandela lived for 18 years. In a small cell because of his color of the skin and his battle for human rights.

We have been the only city in Italy to give Nelson Mandela honour citizenship and also we gave his name to one of our most important buildings where we make concerts and events.

I would like you worldwide to spread this message that is Mandela’s and Martin Luther King’s: stop the hate, but not with more hate, but with love and education.

Only light can send away darkness. These are Martin Luther King words I agree about 1000%.

We need to avoid the risk here in Italy that the far right coalition wins.

Also they want to withdraw from Europe, to isolate … madness.

And nobody can stop people from moving to one country to another, especially when these people are just looking for a better future and are escaping from sure death. We need to remember our humanity. People want to send them away, but away where?

As a union, in Europe we are finding and we need to find solutions here in Europe and also in Africa where they escape from. So, far right parties do not have to win.

Till not long time ago, Salvini (the Lega party leader) was blaming South Italy people, and saying that people from Naples smell badly. Now he is doing the same with immigrants: discriminating.

Italy is just one country and people are forgetting his hate for the South of our country. Now he has shifted his intolerance and hate towards the “strangers”. Totally unacceptable.

I do hope people will use their heart and mind when voting on the 4th of March.

We need it, to move on, as we did with this legislation and this just finished government. We managed to go out from the economical crysis we had fell into. And now we are growing again, we are moving forward and we do not need someone to bring us back to past times with Berlusconi, to be forgotten.

Thanks for reading me once more.

March approaching quickly and lots of tensions around. We need to stop this spread fear and hate aroud.

Colors are the beauty of life!

A big hug to everyone, because no one ever should feel discriminated especially for the color of the skin.

Thanks again for reading me

you all guys take good care of yourself

See you soon

Barbara
