Piazza Unità d’Italia in Trieste will be banned from protest demonstrations until December 31st. The decision was communicated by the mayor Roberto Di Piazza and by the prefect Valerio Valenti after the surge of infections in the Julian city linked to the processions and principals against the obligation of the green certificate. “Anyone who violates this ban will be punished with very important fines,” Di Piazza said.
In balancing interests, for me the right to health prevails over the right to demonstrate – said Valenti – It is necessary to identify, and we will do so in a meeting of the Public Safety Committee to be held today, forms that do not repress this right but compress it in the light of scientific evidence. It is a difficult operation because it must be accompanied by a principle of effectiveness of the measures implemented. It is necessary to adopt measures that anticipate the obligations that are triggered with the yellow zone “. Valenti explained that he is preparing to sign a provision with which “in piazza Unità d’Italia, which has always been considered available to all, the right to demonstrate will be momentarily compressed.
It cannot be the scene of further events until 31 December “. The Prefect, who is about to move to Florence, concluded with an appeal to the protesters: “You are free to do what you want, not to get vaccinated, but let the others free”
