“We must use up to the last useful minute of the legislature, even if the road is uphill and the road is very narrow, to try to give an answer to the many young people, the many people, the real country, the squares, which are very far away from that shameful applause and from those stadium shouts in the Senate that went around the world and made us ashamed “. This was stated by the deputy Alessandro Zan, author and speaker of the Ddl against homotransphobia, on the sidelines of the event ‘We do not stop – For the rights against, hatred’ in Milan, at the Elfo Puccini theater, commenting on the outcome of the decision of the Senate which on October 27th destroyed the decree he presented.
“This trap has sanctioned that the majority of the Senate has effectively stopped a law of civilization, but it is clear that those who make politics must never give up – he added -. There are movements, associations, a civil society, which are the degrees. to organize forms of participation and protest, of popular initiative, which can urge Parliament to act quickly. Because while the senators applaud, not for having approved a law against hate crimes but for having put it down, people are continually discriminated against and made objects of violence “.

With Zan also the mayor of Milan Beppe Sala. Who pointed the finger at those who ditched the law in the Senate: “A left-wing party voted against the Zan bill, but this part will be overwhelmed by a prevailing idea in a few years, when young people grow up, because it is a problem that they do not have, they have already solved them, they have won over our political capacity to give a concrete dimension “.
Sala, who had already sided with Zan in recent days, added: “I am willing to convene a kind of States General with the representatives of parties who do not want to escape and who want to reach a solution on this issue: Milan has the the largest LGBTQ community in Italy, so it can be a guide when it comes to these issues. Milan always knows how to always be and think ahead and know how to do things. I want to offer the city for a healthy, solid and peaceful discussion ” .

The PD deputy also spoke about the text of the law that prohibits sexist and discriminatory advertisements along the streets, approved within the transport bill and defined by some members of the right as a sort of masked Zan bill. “It is an absolutely positive fact, because it is not acceptable that sexist, homophobic, racist posters are staged. Therefore, it was an important choice. I find it curious – he added – that it was also presented by a political force like Italy. Viva, who asked for gender identity to be removed. So I wonder why gender identity there yes and in the Zan Bill no. unequivocal, and I hope forever, the fact that gender identity is not an invented word but a legal term, consolidated throughout our legal system and which must always be used to counter any discrimination “.
