(en) Italy, Sicilia Libertaria: NO MUOS - Palestine, Sigonella and electromagnetic miracles (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 13 Jun 2024 08:55:19 +0300

Continuously engaged in the ongoing wars, the NO MUOS Movement has taken part in all the initiatives, in particular those against the genocide of the Palestinian people, which intersected with April 25th. In Palermo, the meeting with local transport workers was important, organized by Cobas autoferrotramvieri and Alleanza No Guerra; much participated by the workers, it was an opportunity to spread counter-information on the involvement of Italy and Sicily in the ongoing conflicts and how the city is also directly involved in the wars, with the military commissions at the Naval Shipyard and with the Leonardo SpA factory in the Guadagna district. Making known that Palermo is home to death garrisons was important because these realities have been carefully camouflaged over time.

The arrest of Luigi Spera and the restrictions on the freedom of movement of a companion, both of Antudo, are closely linked to the presence of Leonardo, against whom two years ago a merely demonstrative act was carried out of which the two companions are accused, an action tending, at that precise moment, to denounce Turkey's genocidal aggression against the Kurdish people, with Italian armament. A campaign is underway for Luigi's release and for the elimination of restrictions on his partner.

Also in Catania there was great activism, with the police taking a hard line towards students, a very hot 25th April, characterized by the rejection of official celebrations to highlight today's fascisms, those which claim innocent victims in the ongoing wars, Gaza and Ukraine in head.

In Ragusa, the No Wars Assembly was formed at the end of April, by individuals of different political backgrounds, on the basis of three watchwords: disarmament, desertion, disobedience; its first outing was during the "May Day against all wars" organized by the anarchist group, with, among others, the intervention of Antonio Mazzeo. Mazzeo himself presented the book "The school goes to war - The militarization of education in Italy" the evening before in Modica, at the Laveronica Gallery.

Some news that concerns us: on April 30th the Meloni government performed one of its miracles in defense of citizens' health, raising the electromagnetic emission limit from the precautionary average of 6 V/m to 15 V/m. An operation to protect 5G companies and all telephone operators, but also military telecommunications structures, such as the MUOS in Niscemi.

We note, with respect to a measure passed under the radar and released in the middle of a holiday weekend, the tough stance taken by 8 Ligurian municipalities, who have issued "contingent and urgent ordinances" to maintain the electromagnetic emission limit on the administered municipal territory in the precautionary average of 6 V/m. They are all municipalities in the metropolitan area of Genoa: Lavagna, Cogorno, Leivi, Ne, Rapallo, Santa Margherita Ligure, Sestri Levante and Pieve Ligure; here, to protect the health of their fellow citizens, the mayors have prohibited "any increase in the limits of electromagnetic fields". A courageous choice that should be made known and exported throughout Italy.

Meanwhile, on May 5th, the regional demonstration "Let's stop the genocide of the Palestinian people - Immediate and definitive ceasefire - Let's demilitarize Sigonella! Let's boycott Israel! - Italy out of NATO! Keep war out of history!". The procession, which was joined by numerous regions of solidarity with Palestine, the NO MUOS Movement, grassroots unions and anti-militarist organisations, once again placed the central role of the US and NATO bases in Sicily in the wars at the center of attention in progress: "Sicily is increasingly involved in the spiral of war: since last November the Global Hawk drones have taken off from the Sigonella base and for a few weeks the TRITONs for intelligence and surveillance operations over the entire Middle East, as well as the P8 Poseidon patrol planes, while Globe Master cargo planes continue to transfer weapons and ammunition from the USA (via Ramstein, Germany) to the Israeli air base of Nevatim, in the Negev desert. Furthermore, the ports of Augusta and Catania were involved in the NATO anti-submarine exercises Dynamic Manta 2024, militarizing the Ionian Sea, while humanitarian ships continue to be prevented from landing, thus hindering the rescue of migrants at sea".
