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

 

 

 

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.

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.

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

Free Palestine! Stop the apartheid (hafrada)

Hi everyone!

Today is the first day of #Ramadan,

so Ramadan Kareem to all of you wherever you are on this planet.

I am not a Muslim, but I love Islam and my heart is with all Muslim people worldwide, the ones that are discriminated, hated, hurted, offended and insulted for their identity.

Islam, I will never get tired repeating it, is a religion of peace and love! As much as all other religions!

So God bless you all! We are all brothers on this planet! All equal, all children of God.

 

I want today to write an article about #Palestine, because we are all reading the news these days, and it is time to say enogh to the crimes of #Israel, and #Nethanyau specifically. Enough killings and bombing, and tortures, and jail.

I love Jews (I know a few also), I have lot of respect for their religion, but Israel, I mean the state of Israel is a criminal. Worldwide there have been strikes and even young Jewish generations have come in the street to protest against Israeli government.

Such a shame that these last elections Nethanyau won again.

Because also many Jews know and are not afraid to say out loud that Nethanyau is a criminal!

I will not write here all the history of the conflict, but what is going on in Gaza must be stopped for good with the creation of a true Palestine state.

And criminal is also Trump who has moved the embassy to Jerusalem. Shame on him!

Enough of apartheid (hafrada), enough of crimes. Human rights! Children shot, jailed. Palestinians have seen all their rights taken, and not just the rights like their residence, but also land, food, water, pertrol, medicines, doctors …

condizioni.jpg

There is no life for Palestinians who just want and ask for their basic human rights to live! So who is blaming them does not know the conditions they live in.

residenza.jpg

And lands confiscated. No food, water polluted …

acqua contaminata.jpg

It is essential that worldwide we all condemn Israel. And it has already been done by lots of artists and writers.

scirttori.jpg

but it is not enough. We must stop this apartheid. Human rights: food, land, medical care, schools, documents …

It is not human. And lots of Jews also support Palestinians.

Crimes against children, also jailed, killed.

I want to remember here a saint, an angel, a paramedic who was shot in Gaza. She was wearing the doctor sign. She was shot anyway. (RIP)

Razan al Najjar.jpg

So I am asking you all to boycott Israel. The state of Israel. Not the Jews. Because it is not a matter of religion. There are, as I said, many Jews who are against Nethanyau and together with Palestinians.

We must condemn Nethanyau policy and apartheid and inhumanity.

We must stop these crimes!

Thanks and a big hug to you all.

EQUALITY

I apologize for my absence here, but you know what is the political situation now in Italy: a shame. And also because of this I felt the need to write you now this post.

I have a question for everyone: WHAT IS REAL EQUALITY?

The world still needs to truly know and put in practice this word for real worldwide.

Because there is no real democracy if there is no real equality. And what is real equality? It is the real equality of each person in front of the law. The law the same for everyone with no discriminations man or women, gay or transgender, Muslim, Catholic, Jewish … No discriminations at all, of any kind.

We all should be equal in front of the law as it is stated for instance in our Constitution, with no discrimination of religion, sex, sexual orientation, color of the skin …

But unfortunately we are facing two different realities on the planet.

Here in Italy, where these principles are stated but sometimes not applied and put in practice by people. We are facing an horrific increase of crimes with racial involvements. When the only race for everyone is human race, but some people, due also to our new government fear campaign, are now not respecting this basic principle of real equality of human beings. So some people have been assaulted, and we had also death episodes in the past, just because of the color of the skin or ethnicity. The scandal raised also in Europe watching our country going more and more extremist and far right in decisions, also not to receive the boats with immigrants that were risking their lives in the sea … And we are responsible of so many lives lost in the Mediterrenean if we could have been able not to give this immigrations in the hands of the mafia, but creating real human corridors, for people to come legally here and have the assistance they deserve because they are running away from war, persecution, starvation … The solution would never be just to send these people back because migrations have always been part of human history and cannot be stopped.

And the second reality I am talking about is in those places on earth where real equality is not respected by the states themselves and by their laws. Where because of religion discriminations people are not given jobs, where because women they are not paid the same as men, where because of sexual orientation people are discriminated, and even jailed or killed in some states of the planet.

I mean where is real equality?

Does it matter if a person has a different skin color, or worships a different religion, or falls in love with another human being maybe of the same sex?

Does this influence laws or how people are or should be treated?

Yes. Unfortunately people in 2018 worldwide are still discriminated for the color of their skin, for their religion, for their sexual orientation.

With no respect for real equality.

It is so sad. And the fault of all this?

Who encourages discriminations and hate, and mainly the lack of culture and education.

Yes, because studying the world history we would discover that there is no elected people, everyone is the same to one another because we all descend from the same ancestors coming back from what was before one single continent.

We would discover that Jesus had dark skin.

We would have discovered omosexuality has always existed, in all society and you cannot stop what is not a personal choice but a peculiarity of the person, not a free choice, but a way of being. And actually it exists also in nature in the natural life in the animals world.

Also animals, if you see them, they attack when they feel in danger. Human beings are the only ones who are able of evil behaviors just for the sake of it. So for no reason discriminations and attacks to who is different just because of differences, and not even because of real dangers.

People think of immigrations as invasions: they are not. Even states are conventions. Borders are a human creation. But everyone is building walls starting from their inner soul.

Why in 2018 the world is not able to have people living in peace together? Money and power.

And above all, why we are not able to live in real equality in all laws and relationships?

The answer is always the same: money, power. There are so many interests in these behaviors.

When a population is in economical difficulities, it is easier to find a target, an enemy to be accused of all disgraces. Like it was for the Jewish in the Second World War. They were also rich, and they were just an obstacle for more money and more power in the minds of all those sick people who got involved in one of the biggest shames of the planet history.

So fear. I guess fear is the reason why people are not able to accept and put in practice real equality principles. Weakness. Not enough self esteem to accept confrontations.

But the real strenght is in the peace of mind of being themselves. Thinking with their own head. Being free in the soul even before than in the body.

But it is easier for all dictatorships to controll the masses with just orders, they do not have to think with their own mind. Keeping people obiedient because of fear so that they will never complain or try to change things.

Making people fighting with each other not to see bigger issues above or aroud them. It is always a distraction.

When in the world people will start to realize that is not a matter of a war between people who are right and people who are wrong, and there is no necessity to change anyone because we all should be accepted for who we are. Confrontations, opinions should be free. People are afraid of opinions because maybe they can make people realize things from different point of view. And people maybe can change their opinions.

Only God is perfect. We are human, and no one can say to be perfect or to have the real Truth about everything.

And when people will stop to feel superior to the others or just right and the others wrong. When we will put aside judgments. Then we will be truly able to start a real genuine peaceful cohexistence where we can all learn and enrich ourselves from each other.

The world is beautiful because of its variety. Colors. We cannot put people into boxes to define them. Each individual is unique and in its uniqueness needs to be respected and should always have the same rights and duties as all the others.

Let’s make this planet a better world.

Let’s stop the judgment and the sentences. People should be free to be themselves, always. And real justice is when people are really never ever discriminated or treated differently: man or women, gay or straight, Muslim or Jewish or whatever …

People are not a short list of labels. We are human beings, each of us in evolution.

We grow, we change, we think, we change our opinions, we learn.

But this is possible only if we listen, if we try to understand what is different from us, we try to think things from different points of view, we ask questions.

Cogito ergo sum. Only because of our thinking we are. Not animals, not passive, but alive with a soul that seeks nourishment in the beauties of the planet and in everyone who crosses our path or has left messages to the world.

We have not been made to be alone. And the planet is a sphere with no corners.

Martin Luther King was saying that if we do not learn to live like brothers, we will all perish like fools. It is so true, in the madness of all wars and all discriminations people are facing for all possible reasons.

Let’s start to consider ourselves for real all brothers, with no better or worse, with no right or wrong, just differences.

Respect for everyone. Everyone is a person who deserves respect. We all deserve shaken hands and a real hug. Because we are all one and only one big family called Planet earth.

All the best to everyone and please also here in Italy we need now a help to fight these racists xenophobic, omophobic, islamophobic and all the phobics of the world, to fight them back with the simplicity of the message of the pure true love for each other and every human being on earth, with the principle, that should not remain just a principle but the essence of each society, of true equality.

 

See you next

Thanks for reading me

Take care you all

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
