Continued Organized Discrimination in Italy

28 Jul

I had mentioned in my first entry that the right-wing lead government in Italy has attempted to evict Roma from the country under the guise of national security. Unfortunately, cool heads do not seem ready to prevail as police in Rome have destroyed Roma communities and have plans to finger print all Romani, including children, for documentation. This practice is nearly unheard of in modern civil society as many critics describe it as an “ethnic survey”. Even more disturbing seems to be the fact that the “neo-fascist” Mayor of Rome appears to be winning political points through these actions.
