The news, in theory, should be a parade this morning, when hundreds of laborers in Rosario of African origin have marched through the country from which they had to leave a year ago, following the unrest to the people who had opposed Local. But no, or not only.
The inhabitants of Rosarno – reports ANSA-would follow the procession from a distance, from the balconies, opposite the shops. Property, without participating, without too many comments. Apart from someone, “you are the ruin of Italy unions. We are not racists, but are the same rosarnesi dying of hunger,” he shouted one man against the furgine Flai-CGIL, which organized the event. The echo of a lady, evidently agrees: “We have no work for us as there can be for others.”
The “work for them,” the 20 hours a day, squeezed up the fast, which is that these workers – and migrant workers – are attacked, and for which show. “Just working in black”, “no longer willing to be illegal immigrants,” people like us not give up, “” We demand respect and rights “: these phrases on banners, and the mouths of the demonstrators. “We just want to work in peace.” The memory of Rosarno, January 2010, is still alive.
Exactly one year ago, the black community in the town of Reggio poured into the streets to protest violently against living conditions in which they were forced to live, people in real ghettos, harassed daily by criminal intimidation. Nothing has changed: the population, after a kind of diaspora, hath been halved. The presence said to be more discreet. Working conditions, economic, health always the same.
Hence the two events today, organized by Network Roots and CGIL Piana di Gioia Tauro. A march in Rosario, hailed by the new mayor Pd Tripodi. Another in Reggio Calabria, which ended in the prefecture, where a delegation of Net Roots, the African Union and met with some politicians and associations.
