Normally I don’t upload these videos ’cause I didn’t want this space to become a sort of political arena but I’m so shocked, and surprisingly even more every day, by the kind of people that are ruling my country that I couldn’t avoid talking about this nth unbelievable event: Renata Polverini, a PDL politician that runned Lazio, the region where Rome is, has resigned after her assistants have used party money for their personal purposes. While taxes grew even for disabled people, obliged now to pay for medical cares, her assistants’ wages grew up of 1400% rising up to 13,000 euros per month (a way higher to the high wage of an Italian well paid).
While the majority of people in Italy can’t find a job, while the crisis is destroying every hope for young people to create their own future, million of our public money has been used to pay parties and holidays for politicians.
Is this the right use of political money? For years now we’ve been said that there were no money for culture, for research, for university or progress and now we have to stand the fact that there were but for sex, drugs, holidays for the Others, that is for those who have got the power. Does power give you just more rights and no more responsabilities at all?
Our country is a country where a political woman, sadly just well known for her b-side, N. Minetti, earns more than the UN General Secretary.
I’m simply disgusted and I can’t believe we’re going every day lower. But we are also because “our” artists, students, “our” brains but also “our” migrants are going away, fed up with a situation that is not improving at all.
Maybe there’s no more to fight for and even if there’s, now there’s no one left to resist.
