Would you know how strange it is to be a slave in Milan…

I went for a look round Milan. The fashion shows have moved. They are no longer held between via della Spiga and via Montenapoleone, but in via Triboniano. In a camp for nomads near the cemetery Cimitero Maggiore, recently done up new thanks to the Milan city Council’s “Rule of Law Pact”. The models come from Romania, beautiful and young, about 15 years old. The youngsters are not made up, but raped, beaten and kept without food. Then they go out onto the catwalk, perhaps a bit anorexic, for a clan of foreign delinquents who admire them nude. Completely nude. The more beautiful they are, the more their value goes up. They pay up to five thousand euro for a young girl to be a prostitute on the streets. Once upon a time, women walked out nude in front of the Nazis who selected them for the gas chambers.
Milan wants EXPO 2015 and it doesn’t know how to protect young girls, and they are hardly more then children, in its own territory. In Milan, slavery has come back. The CO2 capital has overtaken ancient Rome in badness. The young girls are merchandise on the pavements for local paedophiles. The demand is high, you can see that in full daylight. Fresh imported meat.
The camp of models however cannot be searched, and even less can it be kept under control. It’s reported in il Corriere della Sera “a few weeks ago the prosecutor Ester Nocera, had wanted to order a search in relation to a prostitute who was tired of humiliation and beatings, but a high level police officer opened wide his arms. And the reason is easily explained. Either there’s a mass search of the camp in via Triboniano or a search is useless, because a system of look-outs warns of the arrival of the officers and warns those that can to make people and things disappear in real time.”
State Police, Carabinieri, Magistrates, local Police, Guardie di Finanza, Guardians, Army: how many are there of them in all? Hundreds of thousands, but not enough for the camp in via Triboniano. The thought of a citizen is lost. How is it possible that the young girls are treated like beasts not far from Piazza del Duomo, that everyone knows about it and nothing happens. A maleficent nothing. Perhaps Italy no longer exists, perhaps we are in extinction.

We can thank one person for this mess: MRS Merlin, who 50 years ago closed the brothels.
That idiot generated so much shit that it would take years to clean up even after the right laws would be introduced.

It's beyond the pale! The police in Milan said, "Either there is a mass search of the Triboniano camp, or a search is usless..." I'm no security expert but, "What's the problem? Mass search already! The police concedes that a mass search of the camp is the solution to stop the sex-slave business in Milan yet all they do about it is open their arms in Christian resignation? Are they keeping mum on something? The girls Beppe Grillo talks about are children! In Italy, children are paraded in the nude, are bought and sold, thrown on the sidewalk to sell themselves and the all the police can do is open their arms wide? Never ceases to amaze me how a people whose Christian values and heritage are supposed to be embedded in their DNA allow thousands and thousands of children to be harmed before their eyes and do little or nothing about it. Jesus explicitly said that if anyone harms a child he might as well tie a rock around his neck and leap into the sea. Gratuitous preaching? Sure, for the people that would rather see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. In the "birthplace of civilization" (as a right-wing friend calls Italy) the rebirth of slavery is in full swing. This story needs to be front-page every day. We cannot simply acknowledge that children are used as lucrative commodities and allow that slave business to go on as if the the Will of God is being done. As rhetorical as the following may sound it must be repeated, "When a Pharisee asked Jesus what the core of the law was, Jesus said, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." Those Romanian girls poor, naked, and hungry are our neighbors and need our help and love, no more and no less, than as if they were Italians.

Sgarbi has the right idea, a red light zone in milan. he doesnt have many supporters though. its a pity that the majority of politicians dont stop being so hypocritical and admit that prostitution exists ,and will always, and do something about it.

the Rom problem in milan is a timebomb waiting to go off!!!

Hi, Beppe. Can you use single (') and double (") quotation marks in correctly (ascii) way?

In other words

Milan city Council's "Rule of Law Pact"

Instead of

Milan city Council’s “Rule of Law Pact”

I complement Gary Casella on his sensitive comment .
I lived in the country near Florence for a number of years . Returning home from parties in the city , in the early hours of the morning , my car was hailed by an army of black girls , whom one could only see by the white or bright clothes they wore . These girls had officially been brought to Italy for religious education . They were eventually rounded up and sent home . Residents in that Lungarno district complained forcefully about the dangerous, unhygenic mess made in their childrens playground park .
Further out of the city were East European girls, shivering in the shadows . I was tempted to help to rescue them, take them to my neighbouring town Carabinieri; but was fearful that my naive good intentions might be misconstrued and get me into trouble. A middle aged priest in Florence, seems to have made it his mission, to go out at night, to meet the girls or boys on the street and help to rescue them.
It is difficult even for a priest; one cannot be sure that the law and the police are on the side of right in Italy . The beasts who import and control these east european girls or boys; are themselves east european; infinitely more ruthless, brutal, heartless and dangerous than Italian Maffiosi.
The naive general public has religious scrouples; that prostitution is a sin and therefore must be banned by law . "What the eye doesn't see, the heart doesn't grieve over"! Legalised prostution can be controlled and kept off the street; making it more difficult for young girls and boys to be exploited by ruthless gangs of pimps.

Milan, unfortunately, is similar to any other big city in the respect that there are prostitutes and prostitution rings and pimps and police that are decent and police that are evil. I note, briefly, the prostitution in Amsterdam is something that everyone knows about, is prominent, amongst other things, but is legal, therefore controlled, safer and much more sanitary. Will prostitution ever be purged, I doubt it. It is not called 'the oldest profession' for nothing. When a person is desperate and has something to sell and can find nothing other than the most menial jobs for no money, of course they will turn to what comes naturally, and make a much better living in the interim. Of course, in so many places where this occurs, they have to trade the money for the pride that they are losing, the illnesses they will get, the beatings they will have to put up with. No different than any other city where prostitution is prevelant and illegal. I will note that male prostitues also exist in Milano and have to cruise even worse areas than the women do, with little to, usually, no, protection and making next to nothing in comparison to their female counterparts. All one need do is go into a train station to be pursued, cojoled and often harassed by these men, who are there for the same reasons as the female prostitutes and usually come from the same Eastern European nations but have an extra issue, being drug addiction. My cousin, a doctor in Milano (another slave to the system) tells me about how many men she has coming in and 'men' is being generous....they are kids....for shots of antibiotics, AIDS tests, anything you can imagine. It is obvious that the sympathy would lean toward the female but the boys out there hustling cannot, must not be forgotten. No matter who it is, though, it is a sad and miserable life to lead when they had such expectations, coming to a Western European nation and having heard such wonderful things about these places that were not open to them just a few short years ago. Whether they are working the streets next to Il Duomo or S. Maria della Grazie, or next to a garbage dump, it makes no difference, it is sad, truly sad, and the 'officials', who allow it, for a few €€ in their pockets, should be exiled to an island somewhere in the Mediterranean that has no affiliation. They are the truly sick people, not the ones trying to survive.
