Not only did the no-vax protest end in a flop, now Trieste also becomes one of the Italian cities with higher number of infections from Covid. The no-green pass event in Piazza Unità d’Italia was supposed to be the largest and most participated in the country, but in the end it was canceled due to the fear of infiltration by violent forces. Despite this, yesterday 2-300 people showed up anyway. Many, however, instead of protesting have dedicated themselves to chess, music, football. Of the black bloc, data also arriving from abroad, no trace. Although – as he explains Republic – the fears were not so unfounded.
To convince the demonstrators to stay at home was the former spokesman of the port of Trieste, those who started it all, Stefano Puzzer, now leader of the October 15 Committee. Today he will lead the delegation that will meet the Minister of Agriculture Stefano Patuanelli. “They expected that there would be a brothel in Trieste to have the excuse to cancel the meeting with the government for this we have reset everything “, he said.
From the point of view of infections, the city has 139 positives per 100 thousand inhabitants – thus registering the highest incidence in Italy – compared to a percentage of vaccinated people of 71% with a dose against the national average of 85. Now, moreover, Trieste appears split in two: on the one hand there are those who promise to do not let your head down in front of the obligation of the Green Pass, on the other hand, those who do not want to miss the train of recovery.
