The Calendar of Lay Saints 2013

“A mountain of evidence of blood, of bombs, of slaughter, lasting decades, amounts to proof. Proof that Italy is out of control, that Italy is a Nation but not a State. The national borders exist only on paper, in reality they are as permeable as a sponge. The ones who directly instigated the crimes, those who suggested them, the ones who are jointly responsible for the deaths of Ustica, of Piazza Fontana, of Bologna’s station, have to be searched out, also, but above all in the interests of the State. Interests that are as evident as the light from a supernova. The bookshops are full of testimony, of documents, of irreproachable analyses that confirm this. The slaughters and the top class homicides during the period since the second world war are the new Fatima secrets that cannot be admitted to by the institutions.
Who killed Mattei? After decades there’s still no official response, no definitive verdict. Just as there’s no response in relation to the assassination of dozens of politicians and magistrates. We are unique in the world. A so-called democracy in which the State’s “covert activities” are taken for granted to such an extent that they are never discussed. Elsewhere, the murder of a politician or of an unarmed citizen is a murder and there are investigations, defendants, a trial, people convicted. In Italy, on the other hand, it’s an enigma wrapped up in a mystery, to paraphrase Churchill. Right from the start, we know that the truth will never be revealed, as happened for the bombs in piazza della Loggia in Brescia or on the Italicus express train.
Today, some politicians and some institutions find it fashionable to talk about giving up a part of our national sovereignty as though that were a panacea, a solution to the ills of Italy, forgetting that we already lost our sovereignty many years ago, when we lost the war. It’s that sovereignty that we should get back so as to shine a light on our recent history and to do justice to the Lay Saints." Beppe Grillo
