Sonia Alfano. Demonstration for the Justice System, 28 January, Piazza Farnese, Rome


The P2-people have occupied the media. This is their strength. With Vulpio, Gomez or Travaglio at the head of a TV News, they would not last two days. The Palestinians protest in Piazza del Duomo for the Gaza massacres? They forbid Italians to demonstrate in front of Churches and supermarkets. A young woman goes off into the countryside with her fiancé and is raped? We need 30,000 extra military personnel in the cities to control the Italians. It’s a “pre-coup d’état”. They are getting ready for the economic collapse that will bowl them over. The other countries are facing up to the crisis with economic measures. We are doing so with military measures. The Minister of the crisis will be La Russa, not Tremonti.
On Wednesday 28 January we have the opportunity to give our support to Justice in Rome, from 9 am in Piazza Farnese. I’ll be there.
They will never give up (but is it in their interests?). Neither will we.
I know that in Parliament there are mafia people, servants of mafia, protectors of mafia and this is known to many Prosecutors Departments in Italy, many journalists and also many Italians, but not enough.
I know that the President of the Senate, Schifani, was a consultant with the town of Villabate when that town was under the control of the Mandalà clan, and that Schifani was a partner with the same boss Mandalà in Siculabrokers.
I know that the Minister Alfano kissed the boss Crocenapoli at the marriage of the daughter of that same boss of Cosa Nostra.
I know that Marcello Dell'Utri, convicted of many crimes, was convicted at the first level for mafia and the same Dell'Utri, has said that Vittorio Mangano, the stable manager at Arcore and a mafia person, is for him a hero.
I know that there are many corrupt magistrates, mafia people and friends of mafia people who have lunch and dinner with the bosses and with the “in-laws” of the bosses, and yet they have not been punished but rewarded and promoted.
I know that Article 3 says that all citizens have equal social dignity and are equal before the law. I know however, that 4 positions of State have done everything so that they are not put on trial and that they are above the law.
I know that Article 21 says that everyone has the right to demonstrate their own thinking freely in writing and with every other means of distribution, so the press cannot be subject to authorization or censorship.
I know that, unfortunately, this has never been respected. I know that we do not have a free press and that a huge number of journalists know, pretend to not know, close their eyes, and are servile to the system of power.
I know that Article 101 of our Constitution says that justice is administered in the name of the people and that the judges are subject only to the law and not to the abuse of the law or to political power.
I know that Luigi De Magistris, Clementina Forleo, the prosecutor Apicella have been transferred because they dared to carry out investigations on strong powers, on politicians, on business people and on the friends of politicians.
I thought that I had given to this country the biggest thing that I had, that is my family, and instead I realize that it was a sacrifice that is probably sent up in smoke even though it was done in the defence of a State based on the rule of law. And it has been thwarted with the installation of this dictatorial regime.
When I look at the “tricolore” {Italian flag} I feel a great anger because I identify the red that colours it with the blood of our loved ones.
That is why to go out into the streets and squares for me is not just a right but a duty, in regard for those who have lost their lives for our democracy. If we don’t show all our indignation to this regime, if there is no reaction, they will feel authorized to tread all over our dignity.
That is why I invite all the citizens who want to demonstrate with us to come out at 9 am in piazza Farnese, Rome on 28 January.” Sonia Alfano

Salve sono Rosario Petitto vittima di un sistema nuovo chiamato SURROGA.Da giugno carte alla mano tento di effettuare una surroga al mio mutuo tasso variabile che da 20 anni iniziali scopro essere rimasto a 20anni.effetto crisi, effetto imbrogli, siamo sempre noi che paghiamo.Finalmente a giugno/LUGLIO riesco a trovare la banca piu' conveniente cioe' Antonveneta.Dopo vari preventivi Credem,San Paolo banco di Napoli,Banca di Roma e ultima la mia banca BNL.Da giugno dopo varie peripezie riesco ad avere la delibera del mutuo A SETTEMBRE cioe'oltre alla verifica della banca Antonveneta da parte di un loro professionista,mi confermano l’approvazione del mutuo. Resta solo quindi, da fissare la data per la surroga con il notaio.Faccio una premessa io arrivo a loro tramite mutui on line una societa’ che si occupa di indirizzare il cliente presso le banche consigliando il mutuo piu’ vantaggioso (IL MIO CASO E’ STATO SEGIUTO DAL SIGN. MARRAS DI MUTUI ON LINE PRONTO A TESTIMONIARE).La banca Antonveneta in barba alle disposizioni tenta di farmi pagare il professionistiche valuta il mio appartamento e il notaio.Cio' premesso mentre si decide la data del notaio cioe’ sett./dicembre si scopre che il vecchio proprietario del mio appartamento nel momento in cui avevamo fatto il rogito non aveva cancellato la vecchia ipoteca sul mio appartamento ( banca ex UCB ORA BNL).altro intralcio durato 15 giorni.Ad oggi contatto la banca antonveneta che nel frattempo diventa Monte dei paschi di siena e mi viene risposto dalla direttrice che Monte dei Paschi di Siena non vuole concedermi la surroga gia’ deliberata da Antonveneta.Nel frattempo pero’ mi hanno fatto riprendere la documentazione dal banco di napoli con cui stavo chiudendo, mi hanno fatto aprire un conto corrente con loro, mi hanno fatto chiudere il conto con bnl trasportando tutti i rid presso di loro ma la cosa piu’ grave e’ che io quelle condizioni non le ritrovero’ piu’ . spero voi mi possiate aiutare perche’ siamo disperati e non sappiamo a chi rivolgerci il mio num.3356336502 la mia email rpetitto@mail.tim.it

My apologies Mr. Smith, I was incorrect.
You need to click on the small Italian flag near the top right hand side to enable the Italian version.
My browsers also default to the English version, settings notwithstanding.
Sorry.

John Smith,
I have no difficulty accessing the Italian Version in Australia.
I am using Firefox and/or Safari on a 2 year old iMac dual core.
If your computer is defaulting to English then it is most likely that the problem lies in the way that you have set up your browser.

I have a problem with the site, i'm in uk and the language gets set to english by default wich is fair enough. but if I click the italian flag it keeps refreshing the english posts instead..I'm using opera browser. (with IE works fine) maybe staff could take a look please, its a bit annoying having to switch browser just for this blog.

It is no secret that the Italian Prime Minister, Berlusconi, yens to appear clownish, show-offy and likes to be in the beam. More often than not, however, those yens tattle on him as being less then sensitive, and for all the praises and flattering compliments he bestows on women, shows him as a chauvenist.

Last week he revealed it. On the rape perpetrated in Rome, a few days ago, Prime Minister Berlusconi, said, "There are too many beautiful women in Italy". And, a-la-Rumsfeld, added, no matter the numbers of soldiers patrolling the streets, rape happens. Of course the opposition lost no time in attacking him, "...the PM ignores the pain of sexual violence." But Silvio answers that the remarks were compliments to all Italian women and not intended to make light of rape, and said that the opposition twisted his words.

But spin as he may he can't get away from the fact that he said, rape happens because Italian women are beautiful. If he tried to clown around and be funny, he missed the mark. If he wanted the spotlight on him he sure got it. But anybody could have got it. All one had to do was , "She is beautiful. She is a testesterone-stirring woman. She makes men go ape. She is raped? She asked for it."

Can you imagine Sarkozy or Brown or Merckel make callous remarks such as our coquettish PM made?

I've read about the 30,000 soldiers going to make peace, but the problem should be resolved in the core, not at the end.
