A cowardly act that offends not only the CGIL but the whole world of work that fought against Nazism and fascism by paying with the death of male and female workers, trade unionists and anti-fascists ”, they explain Luca Stanzione e Angelo Piccirillo of Filt Cgil.
Filt Cgil – Fit Cisl and Uiltrasporti together with the RSU (unitary union representation) organized a garrison in front of the ATM depot in San Donato and announced a demonstration for Saturday 16 October “To ask for the dissolution of the various neo-fascist parties and groups that continue in the country to organize themselves, to affirm the democratic and inclusive values of our Constitution, to ask for action by the police to protect the work of workers’ representatives ”. Filt CGIL continues: “If possible, it is an even more serious act due to the role that workers and trade unionists in ATM have had in the fight against fascism. An act that offends Milan city Gold Medal of the Resistance. A clockwork act in the days when the CGIL was subjected to violence and devastation with the raid of neo-fascist groups in its headquarters “. Also Atm, which manages the city’s public transport, speaks of an “unacceptable act” and expresses solidarity with the trade unions and especially towards the CGIL itself.

The dissolution of organizations that refer to fascism, opposing the principles of our Constitutional Charter, has now become urgent and mandatory. The tools exist: they are the laws Scelba e Left-handed that must finally be applied, ”the president wrote in a note Roberto Cenati. On the case comes the comment of the mayor of Milan Beppe Sala: “Anti-fascism and anti-Nazism must always be active because, when such situations occur, if you do not have antibodies ready to say no you cannot call them on the field”.
