“Last Tuesday, in Como, a small group of people – mostly belonging to the Veneto Fronte Skinhead – interrupted a meeting of the Como Senza Frontiere network on the theme of migrants to read a statement on the subject.
All the participants of the raid on Tuesday were identified by the Police Headquarters in Como, in collaboration with colleagues from other areas of northern Italy from which the thirteen skinheads arrived, reported for private violence in competition.
The following day, Minister Maurizio Martina announced that he would be holding a demonstration against intolerance, for this coming Saturday. Other movements, associations, politicians and trade unionists agreed to join him. The initiative was supported by Enrico Rossi, president of the Tuscany Region and founder of Article One – a Democratic and progressive movement. The Pd of Piedmont has set up a bus leaving from Turin at 7.30 to bring militants to Cuomo who want to join. Also the Democratic Party filed an urgent motion to the Lombardy Council asking for the regional assembly to express “the clearest condemnation” for the skinhead group’s irruption.
In the meantime, Forza Nuova has confirmed an event in Como on the same day as the Pd initiative. At 5.30 pm Roberto Fiore, the leader of Forza Nuova, will be in Piazza Vittoria .”
