There’s something I don’t really understand. We see people in other countries going to the streets and the squares or doing other extreme acts to protest, and we find it good, we sympathize and support them. Here in Italy most of the people have complained since long time about our governments. At the past year parliament elections, almost one-third of people voted for a new party, M5S, representing the protest, the willingness of changing the country rules, without compromises. Since then all media, specially those from the left-wing which lost votes due to the new party, have always reported against the M5S, its members and its boss. Now a group of people organised a colourless protest, only to say to our political class “go home”. The group is varied and gathers people from different classes, with different issues but the same feeling of being TIRED of what has been going on for the last 5 years, or 10 years, or actually 30 years!
And again, media and politicians are trying to make them look like either a group of right-wing extremists, or a group of naive people without clear ideas, or just a small group of people not deserving attention… the prime minister reply with sentences like”the GDP will grow and everything is gonna be alright!!! ” Let’s think about Xmas lunch rather than revolution!
The problem is maybe that we are ignorant, we like short judgement, we are inert and in the end we like complaining.
Every time there’s a protest in Italy, it is strumentalised by either the left or the right, it is undersized and mocked by media, it is drowned in misunderstanding, or, in the worst cases, in BLOOD. And the good people who feel they would have the right for complaining that our votes where not respected, that our lives are not respected, they end up thinking that protest is not theirs, it’s just about some extremists, it’s just about few farmers and truck drivers… Well, it will never be our protest if we don’t make it.
better stay home and prepare for New Year’s Eve.
uh, fuck, if these idiot protesters continue we risk we can’t eat panettone!!!!
