The new Italy belongs to the municipalities


Quinto Vicentino and Torri di Quartesolo are two small municipalities that have won the battle against the American Army. The doubling of the United States Military base in Vicenza has ground to a halt. The two municipalities have managed to halt the construction of the new barracks to house the military personnel. There is an existing regional law that limits the number of buildings that may be erected in agricultural areas. If the planned 215 houses had been built for the American soldiers, the remaining residents would not have been able to build anything more for the next 10 years.
Kambiz Razzaghi, Works Manager in charge of the construction works for the new Dal Molin military base, has said that: “Yes, Quinto is dead”. So the Americans are homeless, at least for the time being. What they are thinking of doing is spreading themselves out throughout the area, in small enclaves in a number of the Vicenza municipal districts. Ten houses here, another fifteen there, and some housed in the various Bed and Breakfast establishments in the Veneto Region.
The municipalities are the fulcrum of the lever that will eventually raise up the whole of Italy. This was proven in the Val di Susa, in Campania and now in Vicenza. It is impossible to lie to those who see what is happening with their own eyes. The new Dal Molin military base would turn Vicenza into one of the biggest targets in the whole of Europe in the event of a war against the United States. This would, after all, be the biggest military base in Europe, from which it would be possible to despatch bombers loaded with atomic bombs. There is no valid reason for setting up a base such as this.
On 5 October 2008 Vicenza is scheduled to hold a Municipal Referendum regarding the construction of this base. The quorum for this referendum is 35,000 voters. I will be there to lend my support. My hope is that, at some stage in the future, Kambiz Razzaghi will say that: “Yes, Dal Molin is dead”.
There is yet more good news from Vicenza, namely the Dal Molin 2.0 plan submitted by the “Vicenza, 5-star municipality” Civic List plan, submitted by Davide Marchiani. According to this plan, a solar energy farm would be set up in place of the military base. Vicenza would score around one billion, three hundred million Euro over a period of 20 years. This would mean free electricity for 25 thousand of the 43 thousand families. The project is illustrated in detail in the attached document, which can be downloaded. Therefore, I hereby invite the people of Vicenza to support the project and the residents of other municipalities to copy it.
They may never surrender, but neither will we.
