Interview with Daniele Esposito Paternò:

Up until now there are roughly 15 victims and so many people have got cancer. Some have got better. Some are battling with it and “Clorosodio” is dramatic for society, then you have the fact that they go to the Tribunal and say that there were no losses, I can sincerely say that that is the biggest insult that they can do. It would have been enough to say “sorry, we made a mistake”. If they accepted responsibility and it finished there, anyway they should have admitted their guilt.
6 months ago there was the first verdict and I’d say it was ground breaking. In my case against Inail for the recognition of an industrial illness, there was acceptance of the concomitant cause of the factory in the death of my father. I’m telling you my story because the more people tell the truth then the less is it possible to hide and because it must be an example including for me. We mustn’t be afraid of the economic giants that we have in front of us, the political giants that we have, because the truth is on our side. We must never stop because we have to defend the truth and our dignity.

The death section
Ciao to all the friends of Grillo’s blog. My name is Daniele Esposito Paternò. I’m 28 years old and I come from Gela. I’m going to tell you my story. From 1972 to 1994 in Gela there was a section called Clorosodio, a section that was labelled the “death section”. My father worked there. as a shift leader. In 2006, they discovered he had lung cancer,

Defend truth and dignity
One of the reasons why I keep going forward, I have been going forward and I will always go forward is that we have the evidence, we have witness statements, we have the dead people, those who are sick, and in spite of that in the courts, the company continues to say that it was OK, that there were no losses, that the workers were safe.

Usually, talk on the Vespa's show is a turn-off and, usually, after the initial glimpse, it's clicked. Last night, however, in spite of the unsavory guests such as Sallusti and Brunetta, I was curious to hear Vespa's guests rant against labor. There is nothing more absurd (and disgusting at the same time) than to watch and listen to two politicians, a unionist, a bosses' representative and a show host judge, discuss and patronize workers' issues from a TV studio, comfortably seated, basking in financial security assuring them an anxiety-free future. I wondered if they were listening to themselves: Brunetta labelled workers as reactionary for refusing Marchionne's draconian plan to make them work harder for less wages or face a shutdown of operations. Sallusti blamed unions for the horrendous economic and financial crisis facing Italy and decried greedy unions and workers' inefficiences. The bosses' representative called workers' demands as irresponsible, while Vespa (millionaire) smugly bobbed his head up and down in agreement. An air of complacency and feigned outrage swirled over their heads, a tele-moment of schadenfreude while showing fake commiseration for the 1500 workers terminated following the closure of the FIAT Termini Imerese plant. Big-mouth Brunetta, gabbed the most and never lost a chance to pat himself on the back by reminding all of the legislative innovations he introduced to the Republic. Sallusti seemed in mourning and has yet to recover from the shock-and-awe he suffered when his boss and courtesans were ousted from government. Once again union leader Bonanni summarized his reasons for siding with the Italian-Canadian bully in charge of Fiat - the Italianate corporate welfare bum. Rutelli exited the show as the Fiat workers' question came up, but not before he lamely exhorted workers to concentrate on building better cars instead of politicking. Right! Muted workers on assembly lines, politicians and bosses dictating laws. I should have clicked them off.
