Easter, death in the Mediterranean sea

What is Easter?

And what is it in 2020?

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!

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

PS this is my post with the link where I wrote to our Republic President

 

 

 

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.

the sentence means “Inhumanity cannot become law!”

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
