No green pass and wild procession in Milan. Today maximum alert in the center – Chronicle

Milan, 16 October 2021 – First the improvised protest from the state road to the Arco della Pace. Then the second manifestation from the center to piazzale Loreto, with roadblocks and haywire traffic. Thus the No vax people, with much lower figures than usual, greeted G-day in their own way, the first day of mandatory green pass to access workplaces. A prologue to today’s unauthorized procession, the thirteenth from July 24th, which could reach numbers similar to the peaks of ten thousand appearances recorded in the first two weekends of a series that seems endless. It will be another illegal initiative, this time preceded by a (failed) attempt to agree on a route with the police. The negotiation started on Monday, when the e-mail of two alleged spokespersons of the “No green pass Milan Committee” arrived at the police station with a very specific route: starting from Piazza Fontana and arriving under the Rai headquarters in Corso Sempione, crossing via Mazzini, via Pantano, via Festa del Perdono, via Larga, largo Augusto, via Visconti di Modrone, via San Damiano, via Senato, via Fatebenefratelli, corso di Porta Nuova, via Moscova, piazza Lega Lombarda, viale Elvezia, via Douhet and via Melzi d ‘Eril. A route partially revised by public order officials, who have confirmed the start and end stages and opened the possibility of stopping in Piazza Duomo, but have at the same time eliminated the streets that host sensitive places from the layout. Therefore, the phantom spokespersons have placed an inadmissible condition: thecancellation of the Daspo imposed by the commissioner Giuseppe Petronzi on some of the leaders of the movement. The inevitable “no” was followed by the decision to withdraw the notice.
Dialogue tests aside, the substance does not change: for the umpteenth time, No passes will meet at 5 pm without any official communication. The level of alert is high, and the priority is to protect targets such as the Central (the thwarted raid a week ago) and the other railway stations, the Assolombarda headquarters and the CGIL Chamber of Labor (manned by a hundred members), with the riot departments ready to move quickly and the brigade engaged in flying blocks of traffic that create as little inconvenience as possible. Yesterday the appetizer, complete with internal tensions among the participants in the first blitz of the day. In the morning, in fact, a hundred students and anarchists first staged a procession inside the state road and then moved to the street and gave life to a “walk” without banners that only initially remained tidy and respectful of traffic lights and pedestrian crossings . In Piazza Fontana the planned intersection with another hundred No pass and the formation of the usual undisciplined snake, directed by the police into the Sempione park to reach the Arco della Pace. There was in progress the gathering of faces already seen several times on Saturday: the hard wing made up of some daspato and a couple of reported on the day of the failed blockade of the Garibaldi station; plus, the novelty, a group of Atm drivers.
All at the side of the banner “Solidarity not with the CGIL but with the dockers!”, Which annoyed more than one student, as well as some references too far to the far right. Thus, when it was time to leave for Primaticcio to reach the Amsa employee garrison, the front split. A few hours later, the second half, with 300 people on the street.
