With a tuit launched from the Palazzo Chigi immediately after the visit yesterday at the headquarters of the Italian Confederation of Labor (CGIL), Mario Draghi promised that "there will be no tolerance against intimidation and violence." The headquarters of the country's largest union had been assaulted and devastated last Saturday in Rome by neophately groups, infiltrated in a multitudinous peaceful protest in the capital against the imposition of the Passport Covid to Italian workers.
The Prime Minister showed an absolute firmness to these violent acts during the meeting held yesterday for half an hour with the general secretary of CGIL, Maurizio Landini, whom he expressed the solidarity of the government and across the country to all unions, "guarantors of the democracy".
On Monday, politicians, intellectuals and Italian trade unionists demanded the dissolution of the neo-fascist movements that resulted in violent acts on Saturday, including an attack on the emergency center of a public hospital, in which the police had to use tear gas to disperse the Radicals stationed in front of the Draghi office. The Office of the Prosecutor of Rome has opened an investigation by the disturbances in the demonstration, instigated by militants of the Neo-Fascist Party Forza Nuova, and that ended with 12 detainees, including the National Leader of Training, Giuliano Castellino, and its responsible in the capital, Roberto Fiore. The Prosecutor's Office also blocked the Party website for instigation to aggravated crime by the use of computer instruments or telematics.
On Monday, democratic party (PD) of Center-Left and the five-star movement antisystem training (M5E) presented a motion in Parliament asking for forza Nuova solution. And yesterday, during the meeting with Landini, the CGIL leader anticipated the Premier who will also ask for - the national demonstration summoned for the next Saturday under the LEMA Mai Piú fascismo- "a measure for the dissolution of the political forces that refer to the Fascism, as provided by the Constitution. " To which Draghi responded: "It is a topic that we have in mind, we will discuss it."
There is still nothing determined, but in the Rooms of the Presidency of the Council, all the appropriate investigations of a legal nature are being carried out. The resolution will be based on the Scelba Law of June 20, 1952, which allows the Government "in extraordinary cases of necessity and urgency" to act by decree law if a movement uses violence "as a method of political struggle" or "denigrates democracy , its institutions and values ".
The theme is politically explosive; Draghi acts with extreme caution. This provision should be studied in detail, because in the history of Italy a political party has never been dissolved by a government decree. Paramilitary formation of extreme right New Order, founded by Rauti pine in 1956, was dissolved in 1973 by the Interior Minister Paolo Emilio Taviani, but following a judicial sentence.
For the government, all options are open. However, if the investigations of the judiciary said that the neo-fascist movements have attacked the institutions and can do so again, the decree of urgency and need would become the main road. On the other hand, the farces of the far right, including brothers from Italy, from Giorgia Meloni and the League of Matteo Salvini, have already refused to sign the parliamentary motion. But if the courts show that democracy is in danger, it will be very difficult for these formations to vote against.
The other problem that the Draghi government has to face are the doubts of the Ministry of the Interior. In the high instances there is a fear that a decree, who would arrive with those responsible for the assault on the CGIL still in prison, can inflame the streets with new and virulent protests. But if the Prime Minister is convinced that the institutions are at risk, it will be blunt, as he has done it before with other hot political issues.
"I have the feeling that there will be a very strong democratic response," Landini said after his meeting with Draghi. The union leader, who has defended the obligation of the sanitary passport in the factories as of October 15, came out of the CGIL between applause, greeting with his hand raised: "Good job to all".Updated Date: 15 October 2021, 08:55
