The operation "Fiato sul collo" {"Breathing down your neck"}is producing the first effects. Mayors and town councillors who are used to managing the town as though it were “Their Thing” are reacting. Not by talking to the voters, but with denunciations and court actions against the citizens. Who can vote but cannot be informed, and cannot film PUBLIC meetings of the council.
Our administrators are piranhas who are swimming around in waters that are muddied by the compensations, the deals, the favours. They are, almost all of them, piloted by the parties. An incinerator in the territory can give rise to the position of deputy in the next legislature. A new rubbish tip and you find yourself in the Senate. The State companies like ENEL and the municipal companies have precedence over the rights of the citizens. If it should happen, (very unlikely), that some magistrate should want to clarify the town council discussions, there’s his transfer. If it should happen, (almost impossible), that an administrator ends up under investigation, he is promoted to be a parliamentarian for having distinguished himself on the ground. Faithfulness to the party is a sure investment.
Today I am publishing the video of the Desio town council meeting. The citizen who recorded his employees has been called by the Carabinieri and threatened with a court action by two town councillors.
And, today, I’m also giving space to the inhabitants of Tarquinia denounced by the town administration after a civil protest carried out during the town council meeting of 13 August to protect health and the local companies, so as not to die of cancer because of the coal fired power stations.
On that occasion, the majority of the Centre Left that is leading the town decided to give complete authority to the Mayor to accept economic “compensation” from Enel, in compensation for the really serious pollution that the coal fired power station at Civitavecchia will cause.
From the website Nocoketarquinia:
”The mayor is not protecting the agricultural and tourist companies and is choosing coal, this has emerged from the numerous communications of the town of Tarquinia that chooses polemics rather than responding to the solid topics that relate to the conversion to coal of the Civitavecchia power station, like that related to the economy. To honour the truth, it is however necessary to have clarity on a topic that our mayor uses even too often, on which he would like there to be a sort of reassuring role: the “monitoring”. The mayor of a city has full power and the duty to put a stop to the TVN power station. But by choosing to take the money dirtied by coal, it is evident that the mayor of the town of Tarquinia has not chosen the protection of the territory: he stays on one side and watches the environmental monitoring, that by law is within the competence of the regional and national institutions. A mayor should protect the citizens and their economy, rather he is giving better explanations about the relation that there is between the technical role of the monitoring and the money that he intends gathering in from the Enel agreement. Let him then explain why he is taking money from Enel for an institutional role that is not within his competence, the monitoring, perhaps with the control centres bought exactly from the electricity company that gets itself controlled by the same mayor that is accepting their money. Hello! We are not as stupid as you would like us to be. In fact in the discussion of 13 August, the mayor was not delegated by the town council to do the monitoring, but to take money from Enel, it’s not possible to mystify the reality to this point. The mayor of Tarquinia could have chosen to stay on the side of the citizens and of the economy of our territory. He chose to stay on the side of Enel, on the side of those who take money and he has nothing else to do but “monitoring”.
The companies that exist in the territory involved in the fallout from the use of coal will not hang around to watch their own economic collapse and they will get organised without their mayor.
Thus the town instead of doing polemics about 2 words shouted out in the town council meeting and managing to even denounce their own voters, they should say how to save the economy, the flourishing agriculture, the thousand years of history of this marvelous little city that has deep roots in the history that is rich on archeological treasures of a value that cannot even be guessed at.
The two women entrepreneurs who were denounced have been inundated with messages of solidarity. This for all of us is the right stimulus to continue to fight against coal and against all of those who support it, including the mayor.” Tarquinia No Coke campaign group.

Ciao . da anni seguo la vicenda Tibet e mi sento un attimino sconcertato dallo scritto che ho appena letto . Mao Zedong-Dalai Lama... connubi-aquisizioni-interscambi -america.....
Ma che stai dicendo?
La tua morale si riduce a foto in Beijing? fatti politici contraddittori e strumentalizzazioni yenki....
Certo l'America fa il suo meglio ....tutti del resto ,se possono....
Ma qui si parla di centinaia di migliaia di vittime ! L'espoliazione del patrimonio culturale di un popolo meraviglioso e sottolineo 'pacifico'
La strumentalizzazione dei poteri locali ,la distruzione di centinaia di moonasteri nonche' l'odierno stato militarizzato del tibet .
Ma ci sei stato in tibet ? hai parlato coi tibetani ?
! anno fa sono stato 3 mesi a Daramshala.
Ho constatato una nazione in agonia . Parlato con gente la cui famiglia e' aldila' del confine e non c'e' modo di riabbracciarsi .
ho sentito i racconti di gente scappata ,di gente liberata .
Di 32 persone che sono morte sterminate da un elicottero cinese mentre attraversavano il confine nemmeno poi molto chiaro che c'e' tra cina ed India .
Alla notizia non e' stata riportata sui giornali credo e solo perche' si trattava di tibetani Ma I chinesi hanno sparato male perche due fuggiaschi ce l'hanno fatta a scapolare in india .Oltretutto i militarihanno fatto fuoco in territorio presumibilmente indiano E non c'hanno messo molto i due governi ad organizzare un nuovo trattato che definisse finalmente i confini (nov2006) Il presidente cinese viene in india . definisce i confini . Contratta nuovi rapporti economici tra le due nuove superpotenze economiche -il futuro dei bacini idrici-idroelettrici del tibet e dei tibetani non si sente parlare affatto !-tranne quegli scalmanati che si fanno picchiare per strada o quegli altri a McCloud Ganj che hanno digiunato in piazza in 3000 per tutta la durata dei colloqui cina-India.
Io c'ero ed ho visto la gente che digiunava. Erano famiglie ,anziani ,bimbi!
E che gliene importa a loro delle basi USA ?
cosa sanno loro della NATO e dei missili intelligenti ?
NULLA !
I tibetani sono persone di montagna . Intelligenti nel vero senzo del termine . Cioe' che badano all'essenza piucchealtro . L'essenza di un popolo deprivato della propria terra,della storia e della cultura .
Per concludere ti dico che se anche fosse che il Dalai Lama .... e che vuol dire ?
Mica tutti gli italiani sono come il berlusca !
La politica ai politicanti .e come dici te I fatti ai fatti !

ho gia` spiegato 2 volte che lo striscione Free Tibet sia tolto perche` la vera storia e` che Dalai Lama riceve US$6.000 milioni all'anno dagli USA per arrivare alla separazione del Tibet, regione della Cina, dalla Cina stessa. Io lavoro tra Cina e Giappone, sono un architetto e Designer di Milano e conosco la situazione non filtrata e manipolata come gli USA vogliono che tutti credano. Dalai Lama era un politico a fianco di Mao Zedong, ci sono foto nel museo di Beijing, non riusci` a diventare una persona di rilievo e cosi` fu strumentalizzato dagli USA e usato per il loro scopo, separare il Tibet per poi aprire basi militari americane, con l'obiettivo di circondare la Cina con basi militari USA (Korea, Giappone, Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambogia, Laos, Singapore, Afganistan, Georgia, Iraq, ex-Jugoslavia, MDS=Missile defence shield in Polonia, Ukraina in lizza...
Ho gia` detto 2 volte che se questo blog Free Tibet non sara` tolto, avrei tolto l'iscrizione dal vostro blog, e cosi`, da adesso, lo faro` e invitero` tutti i miei amici a fare la stessa cosa. Grillo crede in una libera informazione, ed anch'io lo credo, ma che sia trasparente e leale altrimenti non e` piu` libera. LA STORIA NON LA FA CHI LA FA, MA CHI LA SCRIVE.
Sarei felice ricevere una risposta a questa mia mail.
Cordialmente
