Below is the response to growth of Forza Nuova by CGIL Toscana which is a Left Wing organization. As stated by Leonardo Cabras Coordinator of Forza Nuova Toscana: The words of CGIL Toscana assure us that we are on the right track.
“CGIL is an anti-fascist and anti-racist trade union,” reads the press release: “We remember the acts of Fascists against the Workers, the Houses of the People and the CGIL attacks attacked and burned down, the red trade unionists beaten and killed. We are witnessing in Tuscany an unacceptable and intolerable presence and initiative of officially fascist, racist and xenophobic forces and movements. Many have been the manifestations and regurgitations of the adventurers of the Twenty-Year Period: political and trade union forces, associations, institutions have to condemn with clarity and hardness. It is necessary to enforce the constitutional dictum and the laws that prohibit the apology of fascism and instigation of racial hatred. Well, the Tuscany Region has given mandates to its lawyers to report facts and words that form themselves as crimes. We share the proposal of the President of the Region to establish a Observatory on fascism and we declare immediately available to a direct commitment. Tuscany has seen the Fascist squaring of the 1920s, the great exodus of whole families to the Republic of Salo was great. Beside Red Tuscany there was a Black Tuscany that is raising its head dangerously. It is important to remember all that Fascism has done, to enforce existing laws against forces, attitudes and fascist words, above all the emancipation of the consensus that the economic and social crisis is having. The defense of freedom and democracy starts with the improvement of the material conditions of the work world and the popular strata, as the story teaches us.
