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

World Congress of Families (WCF) in Verona these days: a shame for my country!

Awful Congress is taking place also today in Verona, the city that is worldwide known for its so famous romantic Romeo and Juliet balcony … the city of love.

We are in 2019, an historical very difficult moment worldwide. Just a few days after what happened in New Zealand, after all these white supremacists terrorists coming out … a shameful congress that goes against all human rights, following extremists crazy principles and fake Catholic ideas!!! (Jesus was an immigrant, was not “white” and was not discriminating LGBT people!).

Women rights first of all. Because we struggled to get the law 194, for free abortion. And now these crazy people want to bring us back to Middle Ages, where women were dying trying to get an abortion at home, hidden.

In Ireland they just got the right of abortion a few months ago!

Here in Italy they want to bring us backward!!! Madness!!!!

And not just abortion, but also the role of women! At home making babies! No respect! No care for true equality men and women! We still have a huge gap also in terms of salary and in society between men and women, and they want to leave women home just cooking and taking care of children! Madness! Women deserve a career as much as men. Women has dreams, and a future that is not just cleaning and cooking! God sake!!!!

Shameful the position also toward the LGBT people. Politicians saying that being gay is an illness1 Madness! Gays are born gay!

Or transgender … There was an amazing speech by Vladimir Luxuria in tv a few weeks ago where she explained how she was bullied at school and she realized she was a she, and not a he, when she was 5 years old! She is of course telling everyone to stop bullying children who feel themselves! How can society be so discriminating and insulting not accepting everyone! She is a she! And these crazy people want her to be a man just because of part of her body!!!! When these days we are reading about Brunei and the law that allow them to kill with stones all gays! Madness! LGBT rights! And freedom of love who we fall in love with!

Verona the city of love. Love is LOVE!

Rainbow families, families made by parents with the same gender, exist! Even here in Italy but now they are under threat!

They want also to make illegal to have children! But a gay couple has the right to have a family!!!!

Madness!!!!!

I would like worldwide everyone could tell our current crazy politicians of far right parties that NO ONE can touch the RIGHTS!

A women body belongs just to herself! So the right for abortion!

True equality!

Respect and rights for LGBT people!!!!!!

Please world, everyone, raise your voice to stop this madness happening now here in Italy!

These politicians are just crazy!!!!!!!!! They have no respect for women, for gay and LGBT people!

We are in 2019!!!!!

Please we must stop this madness!!! My country cannot go backward because of these crazy right parties people!

Below the Guardian article about it.

Shame on my country!!!!!! Shame on the current government for this mad convention and for what they are saying. As a women, my rights, and my LGBT friends rights!

PLEASE SHARE!

We must raise the voice and stop this madness happening now in Verona, Italy.

Thanks everyone!

Take care you all

Dress with honesty

Dear readers,

here I am again.

In a grey, rainy day here in Florence, Italy.

We are living in a quite delicate moment in history. Lots of things, mostly bad, happening around the globe.

And I just would like to make a sad comparison between my country Italy, and US.

Yes, because we are having political elections on the 4th of March 2018, and I do not want to see happening the same thing that American people have faced in United States with Trump election.

Yes. The situation is not too different for some aspects.

We have elections for the parliament and the other chamber, in Italy we have two different chambers, and a quite complicated legislation system: laws need to pass first in one chamber, then in the other one before complete approval.

And on the 4th of March also, the party who will get more seats will be also in charge of forming the new government that will be in charge for another 5 years deciding the direction of our country not only for inner regulations but also concerning our position in Europe and in the world with the international global market and decisions.

It is very scary.

Because we just face here a rise back of Fascism, yes, you heard well, people who miss those horrible years of our history, when we were allied of the Nazi.

Fortunately not everyone. And we managed in the past to get the Republic and a true democracy and freedom, with loss of lives to defend people rights and principles of equality, free press, free speech. But now it seems it was done for nothing because people want to lose all that and miss the dictatorship.

I think the news of what is happening here in these days are spread worldwide.

Breafly.

There is a huge hate spread around due to immigration and fear spread with fake news of invasions from African countries. Actually in total here arrived in these last years just the 0,83% of our population, so not an invasion at all! But far right parties have spoken of threat for security and so on.

Saying 600.000 people, while in reality the numbers are much lower, around 400.000 spread in years, so as I said for a total of 0,83% of our population.

And generally speaking in Italy we have an average of 8% of “strangers” in our population, it means living here people also coming from European countries, which is not a huge number after all. And personally I am in favour of anyone. I have lived myself 4 years in London and more than one year in Paris and no one has ever really discriminated me for working there, for being manager of a shop, or directing a whole supermarket department … Here in Italy there are now crazy people who even think that immigrants steal jobs! Madness!

Also these racists far right extremists also do not consider that there is a huge difference between immigrants and people who are born here, live here, study and grow here, have family here, will live here. And still we haven’t been able to make a law been approved about them, the so called Ius Solis, which is for giving citizenship to the people who are actually Italian because speak Italian, live here, are born here, or arrived here when little, study here, work here, have family here, friends, and want a future here. It is very unfair that these persons who are Italian, are not recognized yet as Italian citizens and have to wait till when 18 years old for long burocracy procedures to obtain the citizenship.

Going back to the recent news.

A girl was found dead, chopped and put in two suitcases. She was drug addicted. A Nigerian illegal immigrant was found guilty of hiding the body. Still not sure about what happened. But the spread of hate was so huge that a member of the far right Lega (Salvini leader) party decided to take a car, a gun, and go around the city where this happened (Macerata city) and shot 6 innocent people just because they had black colored skin.

The problem is that the political party of Salvini did not fire this person, who now is in jail, they did not completely condemned it but justified him and people praised him, saying that there are too many immigrants. And this is so awful.

This is very serious. We are having a true threat to our democracy, to the costitutional principles of human equality and we cannot accept discriminations of any kind and this hate spread is just madness.

Reading the news there are lots of more Italian persons involved in horrible murders and facts like rapes and so on than immigrants, but in this climate of elections, these crazy far right fascists racists just think all the fault has to be found in immigration.

So I wrote this article for everyone to help us spread a true message of democracy and equality principles. I do not want a Mr Trump like to be elected here, to start deportations of immigrants, and to praize white people! We are all the same. Skin color does not define a person!

Also there is something very bad happened: that crazy guy also shot our party building in that city (Macerata), and what’s more, there is a hacker who entered yesterday in our political party of Florence (The Partito Democratico, PD, of Florence), and they put on the web all the names of our members, so even mine, with sensible data like the address and phone numbers.

They want to threat democracy. They want to win elections on fear. This is not a fair way to do political campaigns.

And also there are so many fake news spread around.

There is another political party that is quite scary the Movimento 5 stelle, where there is Luigi Di Maio leader who is just a mask. It is a private society. So here as well, no democracy! A private society that controls the party in the name of Davide Casaleggio, the owner of the society. So not a party where citizens are free in decisions or democratically organised. This man, Davide Casaleggio controls everything. People will pay 300 euros each. It has a web platform called Rousseau where they made people vote for the leader Luigi Di Maio, but actually it was not a secret vote, as it should be. Because of the platform, Davide Casaleggio can track every voter, even months after it remains the track. So where is democracy if citizens have no real privacy of vote? And the party is not like ours, democratically organised. It is a private society! Also Davide Casaleggio lied about it and actually about his position. They also create lots of fake news and spread them on social networks. They lie to people. They have put in the lists a man who was caught dancing with the Spada clan, mafia people! And the people of their party who are in charge now of cities like Rome and Turin just show the incapability of governament.

Just some last conclusions.

We as a party, PD, Partito Democratico, believe in honesty.

This elections campaign is not made in the name of honesty by other parites. And with hate spread and insults and continous fake news also about our party!

There is the risk for our economy, they want to go out of the European Union. There is a huge risk for democracy and people rights and equality.

And hate is huge. People shout and incourage fear and spread fake news about everything.

Thanks for reading me.

I would need all your moral support.

It is a very tough time and I really do not want to face the same horror America is facing with Trump elections.

The far right, Berlusconi party (who is together with Salvini), they have in their program a law that will make poor people and rich ones pay the same taxes! (flat tax) completely unfair and not constitutional! It is like Trump cutting rich people taxes.

We must stop all this before it is too late!

Thanks again to you all.

Take care

Barbara
