Kill us All

video_ammazzatecitutti.jpg

Our youngsters are the only ones that can still save this Country and this is our last remaining chance. Without their commitment we have no future. Sonia Alfano is asking for help for the young people of Calabria involved in the "Kill us all" movement, who are fighting alone against the "monsters with all the money and the power". They are fighting against the mafia groups, against the lack of justice and for freedom of information. They are risking their lives on our behalf too. Now they are asking for our help.

"Dear Beppe,
It would be great for us hold a discussion concerning the logic behind all of the battles that we are fighting through the Meetups, through the associations, through the civic lists and through the various movements. Also, before asking us what we want to be “when we grow up”, wouldn’t it be great to also ask us how, for whom and with whom we intend to undertake our civil disobedience battles. I have asked myself this question many times while considering what is happening to the Kill us All movement, an anti-mafia movement into which I and numerous other family members of mafia victims have brought our experiences and our hopes and that is now, unfortunately, no longer able to survive on its own.
If you take the time to read the letter written by Aldo Pecora and Rosanna Scopelliti, it will feel like you have been punched in the gut because every word oozes both dignity and bitterness all at the same time.
The whole of Italy felt admiration for these youngsters on the day after the Forugno murder in Calabria, quite rightly holding them up as symbols of a Country that has been humiliated but still retains a great desire to be re-born.
All the politicians mollycoddled them, initially accompanying them to all the demonstrations and then, as soon as these youngsters publicly denounced this exploitation, they then tried to drag them into court, by sheer weight of lawsuits. Not to mention the numerous mafia-style “warnings” sent to these youngsters indirectly.
Since then, began an unequal battle, above all in Calabria and defined by Aldo and Rosanna themselves as a battle against “those with all the money and the power, leaving us increasingly relegated to the sidelines of the studios, the professions, employment and the rights of the citizens, while others with decidedly inferior qualifications but far more friends in high places has been able to obtain degrees, consultancy contracts, commissions and sponsorships. Their “army” is getting stronger and more invincible by the day, while ours is jumping through hoops simply in order to survive and support the activities of those magistrates and members of the forces of law and order that find themselves having to pay out of their own pockets for petrol for their squad cars and toner for the photocopiers in their barracks, police stations and Public Prosecutors’ offices”.
Thanks to the Internet, however, they have managed to survive and launch the www.ammazzatecitutti.org website on line, which, over the years, has become Italy’s top anti-mafia social network. At the same time, the Web presence gave rise to support from various regions, leading the group to establish more “Kill us all” groups throughout the whole of Italy.
Although isolated from everything and everyone, they were nevertheless the first to reveal the connivance between the 'ndrangheta and politics in Calabria, on the Internet, courageously revealing the names and surnames of well known personalities who were later arrested and are awaiting prosecution. In the same way, it is only thanks to them that there is a possibility of the re-opening of the investigation into the murder of Judge Antonino Scopelliti, Rosanna’s father, murdered by the 'ndrangheta on behalf of the Cosa Nostra soon after he first laid his hands on the documentation regarding the Maxi-court case in the Court of Cassation.
That is why, in 2007, I decided not only to join them, but also to become the Movement’s co-ordinator for Sicily and to actively participate in its spread to other regions by getting involved in national co-ordination activities.
We were first in line when it came time to show support for Public Prosecutor Luigi De Magistris, when we took to the streets of Catanzaro with thousand of young people and various associations and set up stands where signatures were collected in support of the man. We helped him to feel less isolated by proving to those that wished to eliminate him that he had tens of thousands of honest citizens standing behind him.
Now it is we who are at risk, because we need to collect at least 30 thousand Euro in order to enable us to pay our creditors and to fully ensure the future of the website, which has been targeted on numerous occasions by all sorts of computerised attacks.
In their letter, Aldo and Rosanna are rather provocatively asking all our supporters to become “shareholders”, promising in return that the Kill us All movement will never be allowed to go the same way as have Alitalia and Parmalat.
We only have two weeks left. For me it is enough to have gotten to know these splendid youngsters in order to strengthen my resolve. Now I am asking you and the friends of the Blog to not leave us all alone”. Sonia Alfano, National co-ordinator of the “Kill us All” anti-mafia Movement and President of the National Association for family members of mafia victims.

It's absurd that in a country that brags about beautiful clothes, fancy shoes, expensive cars, whose rich people are forever in your face with their yachts, whose national media is obsessed with the sex-life of overpaid soccer players, whose politicians use marine reserves as private playgrounds, and millions of euros are spent on "tits-and-ass" TV shows there are organizations named "E ADESSO AMMAZZATECI TUTTI." I was talking with a friend about it and when I translated the name he asked me to repeat it. I did. He went silent trying to make sure he had heard right. And then, "Are things that bad in Italy that people are desperate enough to form organizations with those kind of names?" I said that probably it's worse than what he could imagine and to illustrate my point I give him Roberto Saviano's "Gomorha" to read. I wonder what he'll say.
