The right to demonstrate No Green Passes must not overwhelm that of being able to continue working without risk. Furthermore, when there is a gathering (this is the case with demonstrations), the anti-contagion rules must not fail, to prevent the pandemic from taking hold again.

These two concepts are the basis of the circular – which today will be released by the head of the Viminale cabinet Bruno Frattasi on the recommendation of the Minister of the Interior Luciana Lamorgese – with the indications of the new directives that prefects and quaestors will have to undertake to enforce, starting this weekend, in case of protests. However, they will not be banned.

The need for new rules arises from experiences of Milan and Trieste, where the traders, every Saturday afternoon, are forced to interrupt their activities or, in any case, to suffer considerable damage, while motorists remain “trapped” for hours because traffic is blocked. “The parades of recent weeks have already made us lose 30% of our turnover»Explained the president of Confcommercio Carlo Sangalli.

They will therefore be only authorized sit-ins (the processions only where plausible paths are possible), and in any case outside the historic centers and the shopping streets, such as Piazza Fontana in Milan, the area of ​​the Duomo and Brera, Piazza del Popolo in Rome, Santa Croce and Santa Maria Novella in Florence, Piazza Unità d’Italia in Trieste, the waterfront of Naples, Piazza Maggiore in Bologna, Piazza del Ferrarese in Bari, Piazza Sant’Oronzo in Lecce, Piazza Garibaldi in Cagliari and Piazza Verdi in Palermo. However, it will be each provincial committee for public order and safety to identify the most secluded squares for the demonstrations.

“Given the resurgence of infections they will also be checks on the Green pass have been intensifiedAdded the Undersecretary of the Interior Carlo Sibilia. “Prevention measures must be kept in place and people must be incentivized to get vaccinated. We cannot run the risk of having to face new emergencies, as other EU countries are experiencing. The country’s public health and economy are at stake ».

Therefore, the control of anti-Covid regulations will be intensified, starting withobligation to wear the mask even outdoors where there is a risk of crowding. To prevent situations such as those of Trieste from happening again, where the outbreak was rekindled precisely at the demonstration in Piazza Unità d’Italia, with 200 infections.
