The 5 Star MoVement for Sicily

ricetta_cittadini.jpg

The recipe for bringing about the recovery of our land is a programme of attack written with the tongues of the citizens. The cuts to the costs of politics will make it possible to find the money for a low-interest-rate-microcredit-fund to get people (young and not so young) with entrepreneurial ideas off the ground. Letís get them to stay in Sicily! Letís make sure that they bring to fruition these ideas within our territory! The cuts to the cost of politics means a reduction in the salaries of the regional parliamentarians, the abolition of the annuities, the abolition of the daily allowances, the abolition of the end-of-term allowance, the abolition of health care for the families of regional deputies and of funeral expenses: itís worth dying as a deputy in Sicily because the Region uses taxes to pay for your funeral and the funerals of all your family. We need to get back all this money (itís truly a lot!) and make the money available to those who want to get some good entrepreneurial ideas off the ground.
We need to modernise the water supply system. A worrying figure: 75% of water running through the pipes of Sicily, leaks out. Thereís enough work for all the companies that operate in the field of replacing pipes, building work and all the rest for the next 10 years.
As regards rubbish, our cities are rubbish dumps because the issue has never been managed and thereís never been the will to find solutions. What we are proposing is very simple: close down the rubbish dumps, put an end to incinerators and thus have zero rubbish as far as the regulations go. We need rules to forbid the use of non-recyclable-packaging within the region, we need door step collection of recyclables and the opening of centres for recycling and reusing. Make use not just of materials but also of the skills of former craftspeople who know how to reuse materials. A centre for recycling and reusing also gives a new life to people.
The 5 Star MoVement is the only credible alternative to the parties. We want to govern Sicily just as we want to govern Italy. We want to get inside the institutions, trying to understand where stuff is getting wasted and we want to be the first to make sacrifices. On the other hand, you get these politicians who cannot do without anything and they oblige the citizens, who are like the children of a family, to do without everything. That is not the way to govern. I can see that parents give something up and then if thatís not enough, they ask their offspring to do the same. This is what I like because I have never seen a family going bust, but Iíve always seen the collapse of institutions managed by politicians. When they tell you that the 5 Star MoVement has no political experience for government because they are not politicians, because they are citizens, just see that they are giving you the greatest praise that they ever could. Because itís truly like that. They are absolutely right!Ē Giancarlo Cancelleri, M5S, candidate for the position as President of the Region of Sicily

All the election campaign of M5S Sicily is based on donations from citizens, and the expenses are really high. To make a contribution with a donation click here.

I have just spent ten days in Sicily visiting the main tourist sites. I found it very friendly and peaceful. What I noticed was the huge number of palaces and churches needing renovating in the towns. Magnificent buildings going to ruin. I don't know about the water supply or rubbish collection(if there is any) but there is a decade of building work, especially in Palermo, and road improvement work. As well as the historical and archaeological heritage, given the huge coastline there is also scope to create more sea side holiday resorts, beaches and marinas. The potential is enormous. Beppe, I tried to visit your office in Trapano but there was nobody there
