From Brescia to Rome on foot for Patrick Zaky: “The government gives him Italian citizenship”

“I walked a thousand kilometers because, in times like these, you have to take care of the freedoms of others”. In his life, Marino Antonelli works in a bank in Brescia, but thirty days ago he set off on a journey on foot of a thousand kilometers that took him to Rome in a month to draw the attention of public opinion and the government to the story of Patrick Zaky . “I thought of him as one of our boys and I was struck by the endless torture and senseless injustice that struck him”, explained Antonelli. Upon his arrival in the capital he found a flash-mob of the Station to Station association organized to reiterate to the government the importance of granting Italian citizenship to the Egyptian student, detained in Egypt since February 2020 without any trial being held. “Time is running out, but this is not compatible with the times of diplomacy,” said activist Marina Baldisseri. The sit-in was attended by members of the Democratic Party, such as Filippo Sensi, Lia Quartapelle and the president Valentina Cuppi, and the spokesman of Amnesty Italia Riccardo Noury. “Patrick’s conditions give us an urgent appeal to do something – said Noury ​​-. Unfortunately, however, we do not see this urgency in the Italian government”.
