Vaffanculo-Day

Vaffanculo_day.jpg

There’s a September 8th atmosphere. Politics is sensing the smell of a tornado in arrival. Preparations are being made. Italy had its chance to change in 1992. It failed. The winners are the lobbies, the gangs, the mafias. The second Republic died in its cradle.
After the mafia-led slaughters in the whole of Italy and the death of Falcone and Borsellino, everything has finished. The 61 to 0 of the Forza Italia seats in Sicily cannot be matched, not even Ceaucescu in Rumania managed that. Mafia Pax, mess-up pax, P2 pax, Confindustria pax, trades unions pax.
Craxi in exile and the President of the Council protected by him. The left that applauds him during their conference. The sell-off of State goods, of telephony, of the motorways, of water. The annulment of the rights of workers. Convicts at the top of the big companies. Convicts in Parliament.
The tornado goes round and round. It smells like rotten wood, like explosives, like hail and dense rain. Italy is a pressure pan. If it explodes this time it’ll take everything with it. Perhaps even the National State.
And our employees? They are playing at hide and seek. They’re always trying to not get caught. One law after another, like cherries, so as not to get convicted. To not get intercepted, to not have their intercepts published, to get their crimes timed out, to get pardoned. Rather than politics it’s more like cops and robbers.
A whisper, let’s say a premonition, tells me that other intercepts are behind the door. The summer will be very hot. Then September will arrive with the Vaffanculo day, or V-Day. Half-way between D-Day with the Normandy landings and V for Vendetta.
It’ll be on Saturday September 8th in the squares of Italy to remind us that nothing has changed since 1943. Yesterday it was the King fleeing and the Nation was breaking up, today politicians protected in their buildings immersed in “cultural” problems. V-Day will be a day for information and popular participation. To be there, keep tuned in to the blog.

hey everyone, it's an italian talking here, from Bologna...the center of what will be the V-day.
I am working, i am not in a bad place, for now it's going fine...but since i was young i always toke for granted that Italy was a democratic republic...well, there are so many things that makes of a country a democratic republic...i love my country, i love it...and the media and the press is soaking the population in a blind cloud.
I am going to the V-day, and not because of political reasons or because someone had to keep asking me to come...i am going because it is the right thing to do, everyone thinks that to participate to something like this you need that someone has to do something terrible personally and directly to you but... listen to me, actually they did! "country" means every-one that lives in a country...EVERY ONE, even immigrants.
They made us blind...and they did this to us and to our families, Beppe grillo is right...ohhh if he is right mates...join the truthfullness everyone, you'll live in a better country.

i repeat, i'm a normal person, not rich but fine...but i do it because i think it is the right thing to do...take some hours off, this is important..Beppe grillo needs a back-up.

i'll order the v per vendetta mask for the event ;) meet you all there.

Le rivoluzioni pacifiche non esisteranno in italia finche' ogni coro di protesta continuera' a venir sedato con l'omerta' degli organi di informazione e con il manganello delle forze dell'ordine.

In Italia siamo gia divisi ed abbiamo dimenticato di essere come fratelli. Ci siamo lasciati andare a stupide discussione come del tipo io sono del nord, tu del centro e tu del sud. Siamo abituati a vederci l’un l’altro non come persone della stessa nazione ma come elementi facenti parte di una zona ben precisa. Tu sei napoletano ma io sono milanese, tu sei siciliano ma io sono piemontese. Si e vero siamo l’un l’altro di regioni diverse.. bella scoperta... Forse siamo anche di città diverse, ed anche di strade diverse o addirittura... di case diverse. Quindi ditemi un po’ qual’e il limite di distanza geografica per considerarci diversi tra di noi? Sai siamo dello stesso colore, della stessa lingua, dello stesso tipo di cibo... quindi non rimane altro che provare a dividerci dal nome della posizione geografica e se va bene creare un pó di razzismo cosi... tanto per divertirsi e trovare dei falsi problemi, solamente perché sono più facili e da ideare, da trovare il capo espiatorio ed anche più semplice da lavarsene le mani....per esempio: ‘mah la colpa é dovuta alla loro cultura al loro modo di pensare e quindi non possiamo fare nulla’. Chi pensa cosi e solamente un vigliacco e tra i primi dei nostri problemi perché parla parla ma alla fine pensa solamente ad una cosa: a se stesso!
Perché tutta questa discussione? A quale scopo? Riflettete un po.. quanti di voi sono veramente preoccupati allo stato attuale di Napoli. Napoli che affoga nella sporcizia, nella mancanza d’igiene, nel pericolo che un giorno i napoletani si incazzino veramente e ci facciano un culo cosi!!
Perché da qualsiasi parte d’Italia siamo abituati a vedere solamente la propria città fregandocene di cosa accede fuori? Perché stiamo lasciando i nostri fratelli napoletani nella spazzatura? Quale diritto abbiamo noi da qualsiasi parte d’Italia di fregarcene e non alzare neanche un dito. Il governo non e capace neanche di pulire una città dalla sua spazzatura, ma allora perché il popolo non fa qualcosa per aiutarsi l’un l’altro? Quando impareremo ad aiutarci tra di noi e a comprendere le vere problematiche? Non possiamo più stare divisi ma bisogna essere uniti buttando fuori chi pensa solamente a se stesso.

I think this is something most of us needed to read.
We need a leader for this peaceful but radical revolution, to gather together our dissatisfaction about this (and the other) government and put it into practice; to put apart our little personal interests and benefit the whole population and our future or that of our children with a large scale protest that will make our politicians run away! Let them be exiled, why should we be so? But not in Hamamet, I would suggest the mines of Syberia or the garbage lands of Campania which seem to need volunteers for some free cleaning service.
Then yes, I'll be back in Italy.

I am with you Beppe and with all of you who believe in this! Keep hoping!

WHy this fucking thing won't let my post up?

what about a chat room is it available in Italy or Tronchetti is keeping the technology for himself?

Lads wake up!
if you think you can change the state of things by posting your thoughts on this wailing blog, you are wasting your time, send your posts to the politicians, you can get all their e mail addresses on the web & tell them to go and fuck themselves directly and you can even let them know who you are!!!!

Ma di cavolo vi lamentate tanto?
Pensate che solo in Italia i diritti dei lavoratori siano stati soggetti ad erosione?

Precariato e part time e' la stragrande maggioranza dei lavori offerti in Australia, e non ci sono ne ferie pagate tanto meno malattia.

Il problema e' che ci si deve rassegnare, purtroppo per essere competitivi nell'economia globale qualcuno deve prenderlo nel culo e noi abbiamo avuto la sfiga di essere nati in questo periodo funesto, non siete solo in Italia a pagare le conseguenze di questa cazzo di economia liberale impazzita, lo siamo tutti in tutto il mondo, il problema e' che in Italia ci arrivate sempre con 10 anni di ritardo in tutto e quindi lo shock e' maggiore svegliatevi e invece di sparare migliaia di messaggi a beppe mandateli ai vostri politici e per quanto riguarda il V.DAY fatelo per davvero non lasciate che sia solo Grillo e 50 altri ad andare in piazza, andateci tutti.
Mi spiace essere cosi schietto ma in italia senza rivoluzione non si cambia.
Ciao vi voglio bene
Un esiliato

Sono molto scontento dell'operato dei nostri dipendenti dell'Italia Dei Valori.

Questi nostri dipendenti sono stati assunti (eletti) con un contratto (programma elettorale dell'Unione) che li impegnava all'istituzione di una commissione parlamentare contro le violenze del G8, contro la quale hanno votato, preferendo, come altri, alla legalità "lo spirito di corpo" e la cameratesca fratellanza corporativa.

Ho appena appreso della posizione dello stesso Antonio di Pietro sul reato di tortura in Italia.
Evidentemente, forse la legalità non è un valore assoluto ma solo un cavallo da cavalcare. In particolare la legge non è uguale per tutti, dato che per "spirito di corpo", a qualcuno si fanno degli sconti su crimini indegni in un paese democratico.

Ritengo che questa sia grave insubordinazione da parte dei nostri dipendenti, che non hanno rispettato il loro contratto di assunzione.

Ci saremo, saremo in tanti, ma questa volta vogliamo la rivoluzione! Una rivoluzione pacifica si intende, ma una rivoluzione!
