The banner of the opening procession of the Fiom in Rome (ANSA) ROME – Against the crisis and the austerity policies and 'the right to work, education, health, income, citizenship, social justice and democracy ": these are the reasons for the march organized by Fiom on Saturday 18 he marched to Rome from Piazza della Repubblica to Piazza San Giovanni, where many protesters have called a general strike. At the head of the procession, with the banner "We can not wait any longer," the secretary of Fiom Maurizio Landini and the founder of Emergency Gino Strada. Expected 50,000 protesters, but according to the organizers are at least twice as much.
THE ABSENCE OF PD-controversy is due to the absence of the Democratic Party, which emphasizes Landini, "governs with the PDL but is afraid of us." Some Democrats are present only in a personal capacity: among others, the deputies Matthew Orfini ("You can not desert the streets in such an important moment") and Marco Miccoli ("We are here because it is right"), the former secretary of the CGIL Sergio Cofferati ("An error the absence of the Democratic Party"), the former Minister Fabrizio Barca. For Paolo Ferrero, secretary of the PRC Communist, "is just" that the Democrats do not detach due with the metalworkers. Because, he explains, "here is the people who want to change and asked to elections, but the Democratic Party is preventing this change together with the PDL: they did the worst thing they could do."
"AT THE HEART WORK" – Landini noted that the show "is not against anyone, but to claim the proposal for change." Fiom stands ready to deploy all its efforts to change the economic policies. "The choices of governments Berlusconi and Monti – said the leader of the blue-collar – are at the root of the situation that we are experiencing heavy. We need to put the center of the work. " Even if the fault is not only the last tenants of Palazzo Chigi, in particular pensions, Landini admits, "the union, put me there as well I did not do all he had." At this point the decree passed Friday by the Council of Ministers "is a first step, but it is not enough." It takes another: "We need to think – says the secretary of Fiom – beyond the emergency. It should block the layoffs and the reform of social safety nets, with the extension of unemployment benefits by making everyone pay a contribution. " You also need to "introduce the citizen's income to combat insecurity" and not completely eliminate the IMU: "It shall be for the large property." Taking into account that "it is not a priority." But the risk you run is that of a government "stuck under the blackmail of Berlusconi," a government that "without discontinuity will not have a long life."
THE PROPOSED VENDOLA – "I beg to transform the five-month extension of the contracts of public administration in a stabilization process, as did the Prodi government." This is the proposal of the Prime Minister Nichi Vendola Enrico Letta.
