Assassins (of masses) in the workplace

Cambogia.jpg
In 2006 there were 1302 deaths in the workplace, 930 thousand injuries, about 27 thousand people made invalids. A social cost of 41 billion euro each year 5/6 little budgets.
The number will easily be well above that for 2007. Just on 5 November there were 5 people killed at work. Their names are: Immacolata, Alan, Francesco, Cristiano and Paul.
It’s a war that the newspapers don’t talk about, that the politicians either use or ignore.
We need to ask ourselves why a man or a woman decides to work while putting their lives at risk. They are never casual deaths. Those who die know they are facing danger. They decide to do it because they have children, to pay the mortgage on their home, or simply to survive. They do it because they have no rights, clandestine or precarious with a resignation letter already signed, so, if they raise their voice, they have sacked themselves.
There are more dead in Italy in a year than there are United States soldiers dying in the war in Iraq. Where do we want to end up? And why is no one doing a national battle, to be won, to be fought to the end without taking prisoners?
Who gains? Because it’s certain that someone gains.
Today, tomorrow, for the whole week the media will saturate our brains with football violence. If someone has made a mistake, they must pay. But for those who die in the workplace, no one investigates; no one gives the job to the police. No front page. Football is a tool for mass distraction. You don’t have to think. It’s like the Perugia crime, or the Garlasco or the Franzoni.
There’s no other solution for football: it should be closed down for at least a year. We need to stop and reflect. To deal with more serious things like the death for reasons of filthy lucre of 1500 workers a year. Filthy lucre because safety costs a company much more than a court case for an “accident” at work.
We need to deal with the protest of signora Maria, the mother of a Romanian worker, Bogdan Mihalcea, overcome by a high tide while he was doing maintenance on an underground pipe. After 16 months the judicial inquest has still not ascertained the responsibilities. Maria is protesting in front of the Turin Town Hall and then at the Smat (the company commissioning the work that was contracted out and then subcontracted to the company with which Bogdan was working without a regular contract.). If nothing happens, she said that she will set herself alight.

My question is WHY in any news which report the death of the young romanian NObody speak of the big crime which is SO common in Italy.

The crime to SUBcontract, How is possible that educate journalist don't emphasize the FACT that because of so many layer of SubContract we have as a result low budget company which CANNOT affort anymore to respect safety standard!

This is the crime perpetuate to achieve a better profit of few!

We should also mention the thousands of people dead because of road accidents, and the thousands of people killed by organised crime.
But it is sad to see how the ultras have used this tragic accidents as an excuse to riot.
It was an accident where an innocent lost his life. Tragic. But as tragic as the death of many thousands of other people.
But this is Italy. And these are the Italians. They would fight for Lazio or any other team, but they would not fight for their rights, or to see incompetent politician be thrown out of Parliament.
Fight for your team as much as you want but remember it is not your team. It has never been yours and it will never be. But Italy is your country and it will always be.

Hello there,
56 Government, therefore 56 Prime Ministers, and with the Italian Institution so fucked up is hard to believe anyone is willing and capable to fix it.
It takes more of a man to admit failure than all the Successful Executives Italy had?
Has any of these so called Executive Prime Ministers ever admitted failure?
If they haven’t how did, Italy ended up in this dire condition?
Rest my case!
Cheers the future looks bright got to wear shades!
Thanks

Hello everyone,
Politicians (In Italy Only!) are like showman, with one basic difference, in TV when the ratings sinks they go home and disappear, these idiots instead after their ratings go underground form a new party or a coalition and the Merry-go-around starts all over again.
Cut the Power Supply (Money!) make them serve for free, let’s see how many volontier Italy gets!
Thanks

Hi guys to You all,
I must say that coming back after 20 years spent abroad I feel exactly like 20 years ago when I decided to leave this country.
The reasons for leaving the country at that pointing time in my life are EXACTLY the same situations I can see in our daily life today.
It's amazing how these politicians can ignore the cry from their own electorate for REAL justice,order,and a fare possibility of growing up a family,a business,eventually their lives.
If we don't recognize that i bamboccioni, the deaths on working places,the violence against women and children are violences perpretraded by
the POLITICAL entourage on us, there is going to be no future for all of us. The left wing is now coming up with this Democratic Party trying to glue citizens insatisfaction to another marketing
label...The right wing is striving on the sickness they left behind...When this country will ever commit and take some actios ????

Hello there,
Politicians in Italy are the spitting image of their performances after being elected!
Did you look at their life and resume?
Mr. Mastella, founder of his own party, 1 ½% of electorate, his children educated in the US, his wife is a Manager in Campania Region, mega villa in Campania somewhere, and just by looking at him any reasonable sane person would ask “Can I really vote for this guy?”
Same for Prodi, Berlusconi, Casini, Cesa, Dini Bertinotti, folks when you vote it means you trust this people with your life, finance, family and future!
Although what is done is gone into the history books, but now here they are all up there again asking you for your trust?
Would you give it to them again?
If you do, and for the life of me I can’t figure out who are all this goof-off people participating to all this parties meeting?
Vote for them again, just be aware you have your future in your hande and a gun pointed at your future and they will pull the trigger.
Their future is not at stake; their future is already in the Cayman Island!
Thanks

E' meglio che la violenza latente nella società esploda, o che si analizzino le cause del malessere sociale diffuso, del nonfunzionamento delle istituzioni, della non applicazione delle leggi, delle distanze notevoli fra una democrazia e la plutocrazia italiana ?

Hello everyone,
Would anybody please explain to Italians everywhere, what difference would it make a new General Election?
Same Idiots running, more Parties and No more money in the coffers?
What am I missing, either You are all going stupid or please put the Country out of this misery and declare Political Bankruptcy!
I will not hold my breath in the meantime.
Mr. Berlusconi is already salivating, meantime every Idiotic Politicians is already sending Job Application everywhere!
Mr. Dalema EU foreign Minister
Mr. Padoa Schioppa at the IMF
Mr. Fassino EU special Envoy
Mr. Prodi Chairman at Bologna University
Every other remaining Idiot will start his/her own Party (Private obviously and with Euro 20 subscription fee!) every affiliated will have a guarantied job in the Public Administration as a Manager without a Job Definition or presence required!
Mr. Mastella will relocate himself to the US (Where his kids are already established and educated!) at Italians expenses and will manage Ndrangeta and Mafia investments in the US.
Cheers the future looks bright you’ll have to wear shades!
Thanks

Well said. I had a friend who was killed in an accident at work. His death was not even mentioned in the newspapers. Sad.

Bloody hell! Italia, you had better wake up, you are on the brink of being a third world nation, the atmosphere is just ripe for a despotic leader to walk in and take control. WAKE UP, before it's too late!!! The justice system is the cornerstone of any nation and our STINKS to high heaven.
