Right and Left do not exist. What exists is a business group. Italy is its business. Our taxes are its revenue. The media are its voice. Good and bad journalists do not exist. What exists is regime information. It’s only an issue of nuances between l'Unità and il Giornale, between Tg1 and Tg5. Journalists don’t exist. What exist are people who have the courage to display the truth and they become heroes, stars, citizens with bodyguards. People who write, speak and communicate exist. They are called men and women. What exists is the natural order of those who know how to read, to write, to speak and who use these abilities to describe the world. No one is a journalist. We are all journalists. On the internet we are all journalists. The newspapers and the TV are the past. V2 day has demonstrated that information is on the Internet. The film clips of the cities that participated in V2 day are on the Internet. Hundreds of witness statements of V2 day in Piazza San Carlo are on the Internet. The number of signatures collected in total for the three referenda is about 1,500,000. It has never happened in the history of the Republic in such a short time. For each referendum, 500,000 signatures are needed. For the whole month of May, the collection of signatures will continue with the signing tables. We need as big a number as possible to have a safety margin. In July 2008, Beppe Grillo will deliver the signatures to the Court of Cassation. Information in Italy can no longer be reformed. It has gone into metastasis in the Board of Directors of the banks and the industrial firms, in the press offices of the parties and the gentile salons. New information on the Internet needs creating. On 25 April the partisans of information came out into the streets. On 25 April even Asphalt Head came out with Ciarrapico. Guess who are the ones preferred by Topo Gigio, of the PD doc (whose origin is controlled) and their newspapers. We are all Don Peppone and we are all Don Camillo. You can’t rewrite history, but you can create the future, invent it. The truth is our future. Let’s keep the flame alight.


Example of journalism:
L'Unità after V2-day reports: "Piazza San Carlo cannot contain more than 40,000 people"

A proposito di informazione, vivo e lavoro a Londra da quasi otto anni ma seguo sempre le vicende italiane. Grazie a internet guardo quasi ogni giorno un telegiornale Rai e devo dire che spesso verrebbe voglia di lasciare perdere. In Inghilterra, su tutti i telegiornali visibili in chiaro La situazione in Iraq e Afganistan e' continuamente monitorata, ci sono corrispondendi fissi dal Sud Africa per descrivere i fatti dello Zimbawe, visto che Mugabe non lascia entrare giornalisti nel paese, e non passa giorno che non si venga informati sul disastro Birmano. Sui presunti 200.000 morti e i milioni di sopravvisuti allo stremo, di come i generali facciano incetta degli aiuti inviati dall'estero per soccorrere la popolazioni stremata e si facciano poi fotografare mentre consegnano qualche pacco di viveri avanzato al saccheggio.
Si viene anche informati sui fatti di casa per carita, ma dando loro il giusto peso.
Ho appena finito di quardare il tg1, tg2 e tg3, e ho invano aspettato che almeno qualcosina sulla Birmania qualcuno la dicesse, ma e' stata un'attesa vana. Il pareggio dell'Inter, la polemica Travaglio-Schifani, il pericolo nomadi, l'addio di Fini alla guida di AN e lo scivolone del Papa non lascavano spazio ad altro. Il Tg1 poi si distingueva poi per un paio di servizi che forse non passeranno alla storia del giornalismo. Uno sulle piazze italiane e un'altro sulle vicende amorose all'interno delle aziende americane. Ma!!

....the only thing I cared about was to avoid every kind of politician things....like wrong numbers or what else...
Just the truth....from everywhere....

Italian TV and newspapers do care about the number
to diminish and give the picture of three fool idiots in fact they publish lies as the premier has three private TV channels + three RAI public TV and about 40 private newspapers and magazines.
People believe them and vote for the tycoon.

Beppe Grillo's Blog is a growing voice in Italy and of course they monitor, infiltrate with various indigestible comments to denigrate it's reputation and close down possibly the Blog.

The reaction of course it's overwhelming and profanity comes out as a form of let out frustrations of several bad legislature with high new taxes each time. Might seams vain and stupid
but most of the Italians don't know the english language, included the premier, so they ignore also because the government in power censor bad reactions from abroad media.

Yeah, but did you count them all?!?

For example, does anybody know exactly how many people live inside Grillo´s huge wig?

There may well be another 2-3000 right there!

What is it with you Italians? You get so stuck on insignificant details that the big picture is lost. Who cares what the exact number of people were. The point is that a massive number of people turned out to support V2 day because they are disgruntled at the state of affairs in Italy.

@Daniele Cortinovis: Beppe Grillo it's a declared clown. This (not "him") help us (or anyone willing to) to understand what journalism in Italy. Let's suppose that 100k - 120k people in that square were bullshit.. what this could led us to think?
1. Both Grillo and "Unità" were clown
2. Unità told us "È il vecchio vizio di ogni comizio e di ogni politicante." ("It's the old habit in each meetings of every politician.") = Unità admit that tell people something like 100k - 120k people in square it's a "politician..." what we can say? "lie"? "not the thruth"? admit that they lie in favor of politics?
3. Grillo told "go in the internet and found the truth by yourself" (which include Unità website) instead remarked as the only truth was just their own.

Who cares about the exact number? We are not bean counters. It was a sea of people clamoring for justice, the justice they have been denied for decades! The number of signatures, a million and a half, gives you an idea of how many participated.
This pent up frustration amongst Italians should not be easily discounted by the scoundrels that are getting ready to take over the Government. Watch out!

I read what L'UNITA' wrote concerning the V2 Day and concerning the 1st of May 2007....big differences in those nymber but...please, could you Beppe tell us how mwany people there were on the 25th of April 2008? Really they were 120000? Could they stay in that square?

One technique virtually eliminates such risk: Sticking to topics thoroughly known.

"Something is happening but you don´t know what it is,
Do you Mr.John?"

"Qualcosa sta succedendo
ma tu non sai di cosa si tratta,
Non e´vero mr.John?"


I versi di Dylan si adattano benissimo ieri come oggi ai politici che vedono che sta accadendo qualcosa ma non capiscono cosa succede intorno a loro.

Life it's a box of chocolate, you never know which one are you going to get.

Ron Paul today had more delegates then McCaine in Nevada! He was considered the fool at the Congress.

Bottom line we the never know who is the real fool!
Maybe next time will be you or me!

Freedom of speech is a right exercised with such great liberty that it is not rare a case when much is said about something of which little is known.

That, in the end, makes a grotesque parody of the freedom of speech, as it turns it into the freedom of making a fool of oneself.

Posted by: X. Y. Z. | April 29, 2008 12:57 AM


Great work!...I hope this spreads to England...we need it.

Posted by: thud | April 29, 2008 12:55 AM


I wonder why you American people post so little in this blog, freedom of speech it's an important right
to use there where is necessary. We don't know all the truth happening everywhere so even if you feel to talk about something not related to the main Beppe's post please do so. There are so many reality and often Tv and newspapers self censor according to the editor's will. This is why also in Italian we talk about everything worldwide. So you have it also translated in American-English so speak your mind you are welcome!!!

UN PAESE CHE UN TEMPO ERA SANO
ORA STA NELLE MANI DI UN NANO:
DI UN NANO CHE ERA GIA' MORTO
DI UN NANO CHE POI E' RISORTO.
NANO DI CORPO, NANO DI CUORE
SENZA PIU' FRENI, SENZA PUDORE
NANO RIFATTO, TESTA D'ASFALTO
SICURAMENTE PIU' STRONZO CHE ALTO.

E ORA SIAMO AD UN PASSO DAL FONDO
IL PAESE E' ORAMAI MORIBONDO
ED IL NANO E' VOLUTO TORNARE
MA PER DARCI LA BOTTA FINALE.

NANO COLLUSO,NANO BASTARDO
NANO CORROTTO, NANO BUGIARDO
NANO CHE MENTE, NANO CHE GIURA
NANO PROTETTO DA SERVI E CENSURA
NANO COL DITO MESSO A MITRAGLIA
NANO ASSASSINO, NANO CANAGLIA
NANO CHE IMPONE LA SUA DITTATURA
MA CHE DA OGGI AVRA' UN PO' PIU' PAURA.

Watch this! Mrs Merkel hosts
a terrorist.
Last week, reports said villagers in South Kivu had been attacked by the FDLR that also vandalised the little they had and kidnapped about 6 people including a 6-year old girl.

As the rebels continue to cause chaos, President Paul Kagame is in Germany where he has urged its government to act on the FDLR leader Dr. Ignace Murwanashyaka - now living in Bonn.

"The German government needs to address this problem," President Kagame said following a meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin.

Mrs. Merkel said Germany was looking into the issue closely, adding that some of the people concerned were under UN travel sanction and had had their bank accounts frozen.
