“In Italy there is a latent racismif you don’t recognize it, you’re part of the problem. ” This is the protest cry of the thousands of people who gathered this afternoon in front of the Central station of Milan in solidarity with US protests after the death of George Floyd. The demonstrators included many Italian students of African descent who took to the streets for the first time: “We feel like we are Milanese, we are black Italians, all the same“Explain some women who demonstrate together with their children. But the finger is also pointing at politics: “Racism is a pollutant that it is also in the Italian laws: from Bossi-Fini to Security decrees “attack from the stage, while some towns criticize those who” built it an entire political career on racial hatred“. They don’t name “because they don’t deserve it.” From the truck you can read the names of the victims “killed by structural racism in Italy”. From Ahmed Ali Giama, burnt alive in 1979 while sleeping on the streets of Rome, ad Abba Abdul Guiebrekilled in bars in Milan because he was accused of stealing a packet of biscuits in via Zuretti. And it is precisely here that the garrison, transformed into a procession, heads to remember all the victims of racism because, as a poster says, “Black Lives Matter“.
