Beginning of An Italian Civil War Against Immigration
By Enza Ferreri
For once we have riots that are not by anti-white black protesters — to whose violence (in) Ferguson (Missouri, USA), among others, has accustomed us — but by indigenous Europeans defending their land against invaders.
In Rome, on the night of 10–11 November, a group of residents of the Tor Sapienza suburb living in public housing attempted to assault the local centre for refugees and asylum seekers incongruously named “Il sorriso” (The Smile), throwing stones and bottles and setting dumpsters on fire, amidst broken glass and screams of “We want to burn you”.
The reception centre houses over 40 youths — Gambians, Congolese, Ethiopians and other Africans, plus Afghans and Syrians — rescued from their boats crossing the Mediterranean.
The local residents have long been concerned about health and crime issues associated with Il sorriso and, after their complaints to the authorities went unheeded … they took matters into their own hands.
“The tension” said Tommaso Ippoliti, president of the Tor Sapienza Committee, “is skyrocketing. For years this neighbourhood has been abandoned, you cannot go out at night, and lately assaults and thefts have increased. A few days ago a girl walking her dog was molested in the park in mid-afternoon. As a committee we distance ourselves from the violence of last night, but people are rightly exasperated. We demand more security.”
“Police are scarce and the city has not responded to requests for more security and better controls of the migrant centres,” he added.
Burglaries, thefts from cars, physical attacks are of concern, but so is the deterioration of the area, including the poor lighting in the local park.
That’s why on 10 November about 150 people took to the streets for a spontaneous demonstration for “greater security in a neighbourhood overrun by immigrants,” and then the protest degenerated into incidents of urban warfare.
Subsequently, a rally of over 400 people representing more than a thousand local families was held on 11 November, leading to another protest outside the shelter. In the evening, 50 people launched cherry bombs, firecrackers and other objects — according to some witnesses even tear gas — against both the refugee centre and the police in riot gear permanently guarding the reception centre from the night before. Some cars were torched to stem the charge of the police aimed at dispersing the protesters. Two people, including a policeman, were taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Guests (foreign invaders) of the immigrant centre responded by throwing objects from their windows.
“It was a spontaneous action of some exasperated residents. It is not a question of racism, we’re just tired, we can’t take it anymore. In recent days there have been muggings, attempted rape and burgled apartments”, Ippoliti explains. “We are not extremists.”
There are at least three reception centres in the area, and a great number of immigrant squats and Roma camps. >>to full article: http://enzaferreri.blogspot.com/2014/12/beginning-of-italian-civil-war-against.html#ixzz3qlWLNTTH
