Guantanamo, Italy


Something exceptional is happening in Milan, never before seen in Italy. Finally those who make a mistake are paying for it.

Twenty five dangerous terrorists who laid waste to corso Buenos Aires, frightening shopkeepers and passers by and burning the odd car to protest against an authorised fascist demonstration, are rotting in jail. They are young men and women, but it’s better like that. They are at the age when a person can be sorted out to live a good life. They’ve been in San Vittore for three months.

The fathers and mothers of the prisoners demonstrated last Saturday in the streets of Milan with a banner saying “Give us back our sons and our daughters”.

Together with them there were about 5,000 people including Don Gallo and Dario Fo who declared: “The young people are in prison without proof. Many of them have done nothing. They were there in the middle of the crowd. This is class justice and so much severity is explained only by the wish to castigate those who demonstrate.” That’s better.

That’s how they will understand that in Italy it’s a crime to demonstrate. While it is a normal fact to behave like a criminal. It is even well paid in terms of power.
Thinking of these young people puts me in mind of (who knows why?) our twenty members of Parliament who have been convicted of crimes.

It reminds me of Previti, sentenced to 6 years in prison, but who stayed inside only for a couple of days. Two days for corrupting judges on behalf of others. If he had burned a car they would have fined him. A gentleman who goes for a walk along Lungotevere every day with an escort paid for with our taxes. And what is the use of the escort? To protect us from him? The young people inside and him outside.

Doesn’t it seem like a scandal to you? It is a scandal. Let Prodi intervene. The young people have already paid with three months. The politicians, the prescritti, those who collude with the mafia never pay. It’s disgusting. The government should recognise this.

Let’s ask for the release of the young people by sending an email to Romano Prodi.

What was that?

What did I say? I was sure!That's our beautiful country! And nobody is protesting against it!
The Prince must remain in jail!
The Prince must pay dearly for what he did!
whoopsss! I would say "the prince"...Freudian slip? ;-);-);-);-);-)

Did you see that they've finally freed the prince?
What a travesty!
1) Previti
2) the prince
3) ?????

It's always the same shit!
Same shit different toilet!

And nobody that flushes down those turds!

At this point I will just wait 4 more years with my Greencard to just get the American Citizenship and end this sorry relationship with a country of crooks that doesn't even want to learn to get rid of certain scum.

I agree with you! but... what about Playgirl? Does it still exist?

Posted by: Raffaella Biferale | June 23, 2006 10:31 AM

Prince, lol, very well said about Play Boy!

You are right.
Playboy is better.

Those magazines live off the need to be under illusion. People need a gilded world of beautiful, rich, and good kings and princes, who let them forget the desolate and harsh reality of their life! And the magazines give them this illusion. It's a vicious circle.

What makes me sick are also all those articles on "Gente" or "Oggi" magazines of 20 years ago, picturing the Royal Italian family as fabled heroes of a gone era.
This reeks of B.S. from tens of miles apart.

Do you really think he could feel guilty?
He doesn't give a damn about Gert Hamer and his dead, because he thinks he's the prince (in lower case)!
He asked today for release from prison, and I'm afraid he will get it. That's Italy, and it makes me sick!

Let's send the prince Vic Emmanuel to Guantanamo with a big poster of Gerd Hamer in his cell!
