There has been some debate on whether Roberto Fiore did the correct thing in changing the date of the March to November 4th. There are those who feel it is a defeat. We supporters in the United States do not feel this way. Our feeling is that the decision was carefully reached and thought out as only a strong and caring leader such as Roberto Fiore could arrive at. We believe as stated by Mr. Fiore that this was a victory for it showed the corruption that we and all Nationalists face all over the world. We also feel that it saved unnecessary violence and possible bloodshed at this time with no chance of winning.
Below is a statement that was posted by Francesco Diomede, manager of Forza Nuova in Foggia. Diomede has been active with Forza Nuova for four years and I felt his post represented a perfect response to those questioning the move:
The march of the Patriots will be on November 4th.
Is this perhaps a defeat? No. It’s a win. The sense of responsibility has prevailed over a violent system. We have highlighted what is clear: this is a false democracy. Did we know that? Perhaps yes, but at this time it is also necessary to show that hot water is hot.
Our leader is a leader.
However, Roberto Fiore has also shown himself a father.
The system moved and would have intervened with a vast array of things that would have been countered with armed men, women and children.
Women and children? Yes. They would be included also. Forza Nuova is a movement of the people for the people. We might have looked like heroes or maybe, much more plausible, poured out innocent blood.
Every bus and train would have been stopped even before being able to reach the capital, Roman patriots would have remained isolated and it would have been a massacre.
You can not save the children of Patria by sending them to their death. Maybe we would have won – or perhaps lost the movement.
Roberto was not looking at how many, if he did not feel her sacrificing her children. Can I judge it negatively for that?
He was very courageous to make that decision. I myself – and I admit it without any hesitation – I would not have the power to act like him.
I can only conclude by saying:
Thanks Roberto, I would have died for you and for Italy, but you did so that I could still embrace my friends my family.
