(en) Sicilia Libertaria November 22: government - With nails and with the tongue (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Wed, 16 Nov 2022 08:31:45 +0200

The government finally left. We have a Benito (La Russa) President of the Senate, an Adolfo (Urso) Minister for Economic Development, a Speaker of the Chamber (Fontana), a friend of neo-Nazis, who thanks the Pope and Bossi and announces the differentiated autonomy for the rich regions of the north; a Gasparri, senator of Forza Italia, who presents a bill on the legal capacity of the unborn child, which would transform every abortion into a murder, and places it alongside another for the institution of the festivity of unborn life and another on the obligation the presence of conscientious objectors to abortion in the counseling centers. ---- Continuing with Salvini discharged to the infrastructures that moves as a shadow-premier and closes the ports to NGOs, he claims the autonomy of the rich regions (with the latest assault on public health and the definitive liberalization in the hands of depriving you and Catholics ) and promises the South a mellifluous Bridge over the Strait, a weapon of distraction and destruction of the rights to fair treatment between the territories of the State. The Minister of Family and Birth Roccella announces a very Catholic defense of the maternal role of women, as other forms of family are not possible; the Minister of Education and Merit Giuseppe Valditara is committed to a central role for private and Catholic schools, and the increase in funding for them. We find Nello Musumeci Minister of Sea and Southern Policies, an armchair in exchange for his early resignation from the regional government; he will be the lightning rod of the northern sharks as they tear apart the part of the cake reserved for the South; his is the ministry of the comprador bourgeoisie, the one that has always sold itself to the new masters in exchange for slices of power and privileges for itself.

Obviously there are Atlanticism and Europeanism reiterated at full blast (a warmongering, liberal and lecchina team welcome to Biden, IMF, BM, EU, NATO) and an economic framework that must not change: "aid" to industrialists through the funds of the NRP (but not only). And also a life jacket launched to the no vax, to thank them for the votes received and to be credited as true friends.

In consideration of the fact that the opposition is composed for the most part by people who want the same things, or who in any case are afflicted by acute government, it will certainly not be an acolyte of lead asses that will be able to put a coalition that - on paper - it has the numbers to hold up for a long time. The only one who can sink it, from the seats of parliament, if anything, may be Silvio Berlusconi, who has already shown impatience and has sent various signals to this effect.

The analysis of the electoral results made on the last issue, based on the substantial continuity between right-wing policies up to now supported by the Berlusconi, Monti, Letta, Renzi, Conte 1 and 2, Draghi and the current governments, seems to be confirmed by these first ones. weeks of government. The bill of 31 October, which, among other things, under the pretext of a rave, establishes penalties from 3 to 6 years for occupations with gatherings of more than 50 people (and off to wiretapping), is a continuation of those security decrees signed by Salvini that successive governments did not want to cancel.

The accentuation of certain exits in the matter of abortion, rights, migrants, political viability, is necessary to give some sops to the most extreme fringes of one's electorate and add a little clerical-fascist and sovereign dust to a program that cannot go out. by the fences set by the "big electors" (Confindustria, Vatican, international entities). Once the dust has been removed, reality dictates the government agenda: inflation at 12%; energy bills that put down important sectors of the economy and millions of households; industrialists from the north east who make it known that they need 4 million immigrants ...

The hope is that such a government, in continuity with the previous ones but obliged to take a risk by showing a bit of nails on "hot" and "identity" issues, can stimulate a real opposition more than the previous ones did; an opposition not watered down by opportunistic awakenings, but which, like the one that in recent years has not let its guard down, today can call into question the balance between those who command and those who do not, can pose, with the strength of a newfound conflict, the question of the effective representation of the needs and aspirations of the popular classes, delegitimize not only the government, but the entire Parliament.

In Bologna on 22 October with the GKN collective, 30,000 people marched under a simple and unambiguous word: Insorgiamo!, many were the young people, the assemblies, the collectives, the associations, the grassroots bodies, the loose dogs; protests against expensive bills are growing, the most urgent clearly shout: Let's not pay!; demonstrations against war and military spending continue, albeit not massively; the students are on a war footing and the offices at Sapienza presage a very interesting autumn for the development of a new movement in opposition to this government and to all governments: there are no governments that are friendly to the proletarians and the exploited. On 2 December the general strike of grassroots trade unionism promises to be a new stage in the construction of resistance fronts. In between, many national, regional and local deadlines that bode well.
