Spanish Armada sets sail to save migrants stuck off Italy

Spain was Tuesday set to deploy a naval patrol boat to Italy's Lampedusa island to take migrants off a charity rescue vessel that has been stuck at sea for days as Italy refuses it access.

"The Audaz, which will leave this afternoon at five pm (1500 GMT), will sail for three days to Lampedusa," the government said in a statement.

The navy would look after the migrants from the Open Arms vessel, the statement added.

The announcement came after 15 migrants jumped into the water in desperation -- some without life jackets -- after days on board within tantalising swimming distance of Lampedusa, against the backdrop of a major political crisis in Italy.

They were"rescued and evacuated to Lampedusa," said a spokeswoman for the NGO Proactiva Open Arms that owns the ship, on which the long wait has led to fights and suicide threats as tempers fray.

The charity warned the situation was "out of control," with some of the migrants stuck for 19 days after being rescued at sea off the coast of Libya, many suffering from post-traumatic stress.

The Spanish patrol boat will escort the Open Arms charity ship back to the port of Palma in the Balearic Islands, the government said.

"After analysing various options, the Spanish government... considers this is the most suitable."

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez tweeted: "With this measure Spain will solve, this week, the humanitarian emergency."

The vessel has been anchored since Thursday off Lampedusa, seeking permission to dock.

There were initially 147 mainly African migrants on the ship but as the days passed, some were evacuated for medical care and all minors were allowed to disembark.
Over 80 are left on board.

Six European Union countries -- France, Germany, Romania, Portugal, Spain and Luxembourg -- have offered to take them all in.

But Italy's far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has refused to allow migrant rescue vessels to dock as part of his hardline policies.

"Being firm is the only way to stop Italy from becoming Europe's refugee camp again," he tweeted.
Compounding his refusal is a major political crisis in Italy.

Salvini has pulled his party out of Italy's ruling coalition, hoping to topple the 14-month-old government and trigger early elections, which polls suggest his anti-immigrant League party and its right-wing allies could win.

On Tuesday, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced he would resign.

Spain slams Italy

Faced with Italy's protracted refusal to allow the migrants to disembark, Spain at the weekend offered up its southern port of Algeciras, which the NGO said could "not be achieved" due to the distance and tensions on board.

Madrid then offered up Mallorca in the Balearic Islands, nearer but still around 1,000 kilometres (600 miles) from Lampedusa.

The charity described this offer as "totally incomprehensible" and continued to demand the ship be allowed to dock in Lampedusa.

Spain's Defence Minister Margarita Robles has slammed Italy -- and particularly Salvini -- for the situation.

"What Salvini is doing in relationship with the Open Arms is a disgrace to humanity as a whole," she said Monday.
Salvini "has shown he doesn't care about human lives", she added Tuesday.

BREAKING: Italy seizes NGO migrant ferry Open Arms

Earlier today, Spanish authorities sent a navy vessel to pick up migrants aboard the migrant ferry Open Arms which has been sitting off the coast of Italy’s Lampedusa island for a few days now.

According to ANSA news agency, which cited sources, Italy’s prosecutor’s office has seized Proactiva’s Open Arms migrant transport ship and has ordered the evacuation of the migrants.

The naval vessel sent by the Spanish government to assist the migrants aboard Open Arms is expected to reach Lampedusa in three days.

Although Open Arms is about a few hundred feet away from the Island, Italy’s National Populist government refuses to let it dock.

It has been reported while anchored off Italy’s coast, nine migrants tried to jump off the ship to make a mad dash for the Italian coast.

NGO workers meanwhile have claimed that the hundred or so African migrants aboard the ship are in critical psychological conditions as tensions run high.

Yesterday, the Spanish government offered to let the ship dock at its port in Mallorca, but the NGO refused on the account that the situation on board the vessel was too dire, and the those on board wouldn’t be able to withstand the five-day journey to reach the port.

The story is currently unfolding.

Dozens of migrants remain in limbo after landing in Italy

Dozens of migrants who disembarked on Italy's Lampedusa island were again in limbo as a European deal to redistribute them failed to materialize and Madrid said it could fine the Spanish charity for rescuing them.

The prospect of a penalty comes after a protracted standoff between the Spanish NGO Proactiva Open Arms and Italy's far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini finally came to an end. The boat spent six days anchored off Lampedusa before a local prosecutor ordered that the migrants be allowed to land and the vessel temporarily seized amid a probe of Salvini for banning their entry to port.

Many had spent 19 days on board the ship after being picked up while in difficulty trying to make the perilous journey from Libya to Europe in small boats.

There were initially 147 mainly African migrants on the ship, but all minors and some suffering health problems had already disembarked. As they walked down the gangplank one by one to the island's shore overnight, some could be seen limping or in bandages.

One named Mohammed, 23, told AFP: "I nearly went mad," explaining that he and other migrants had been left "to cook like spaghetti on our boat" after it broke down in the Mediterranean.

The prosecutor who inspected the ship and decided the migrants should be allowed to disembark said they had been plunged into "a state of extreme emotions".

They were "veering between fear of death in the event of returning to the country (Libya) and hope of a new life, even if it meant throwing themselves into the sea and swimming to the island (Lampedusa)", the prosecutor said in a report quoted by Italian media.

Last charity vessel

Salvini had banned all NGO rescue boats from entering Italian ports. With the Open Arms impounded, the only remaining charity vessel currently operating in the Mediterranean, the Ocean Viking, was still seeking a safe port for its 356 rescued migrants. The ship operated by French charities SOS Mediterranee and Doctors Without Borders (MSF) has been holding its position for ten days between Malta and Lampedusa.

"As maritime law stipulates, we've been asking Italian and Maltese search and rescue coordination centres for a safe port since we made our first rescue on August 9th," said Frederic Penard, head of operations for SOS Mediterranee. "For the time being we've had no reply from Italy and a rather negative one from Malta."

The Open Arms on Wednesday sailed to Porto Empedocle in Sicily where the prosecutor ordered it temporarily seized as part of his investigation.

Spain's Deputy Prime Minister Carmen Calvo told Spanish radio: "The Open Arms doesn't have a permit to rescue."

The vessel had in April been authorized to leave Barcelona, where it was immobilized for three months, to transport humanitarian aid to Greece. It was banned from heading to the seas off Libya, often the launchpad for migrants attempting to reach Europe, but went anyway.

A document from the directorate-general for Spain's merchant navy sent to AFP by the Proactiva Open Arms charity said it risks a fine of up to 901,000 euros ($1 million) for violating this ban.

Six European Union countries -- France, Germany, Luxembourg, Portugal, Romania and Spain -- had offered to take them all in.

Calvo said the military ship sent to Lampedusa could take charge of those migrants allocated to Spain if this agreement is implemented.

France said on Wednesday it was sending a delegation from its refugee agency, Ofpra, to look at the situation of the some 40 migrants it has agreed to take. France also said it was ready to take in "a large number of migrants" from the Ocean Viking, while repeating it would not take in the vessel itself.

A spokesman for the French presidency said the Ocean Viking should be allowed to dock "at the nearest port."

Sicily prosecutor Luigi Patronaggio intervened as part of a probe into alleged kidnapping and refusing to obey orders targeting Salvini.

Salvini hit back on Facebook about the decision to let the migrants off the boat, saying: "If anybody thinks they can scare me with the umpteenth complaint and wants a trial, they're mistaken."

A Spanish naval patrol boat, the Audaz, set off from Rota in southwestern Spain on Tuesday on a three-day trip to Lampedusa to fetch the Open Arms migrants.

Spain had tried to break the standoff over the migrants at the weekend by offering up its southern port of Algeciras, which the NGO said could "not be achieved" due to the distance and tensions on board.

Madrid then suggested Mallorca in the Balearic Islands, nearer but still around 1,000 kilometres (600 miles) from Lampedusa. The charity described the offer as "totally incomprehensible" and continued to demand the ship be allowed to dock in Lampedusa.

Ten NGO migrant ferries in the Mediterranean Sea waiting for Italy’s leftist coalition to re-open the ports

A total of ten NGO migrant ferries are now carrying out operations in the Mediterranean Sea as the leftist globalist Democratic Party (PD) looks to reopen Italy’s ports to the third-world.

Nicola Zingaretti, the leader of Italy’s left-wing establishment party (PD), has broadcasted his intentions to overturn Matteo Salvini’s migration and security degrees which effectively closed Italy’s ports to NGO migrant ferries, Il Giornale reports.

The NGO human-traffickers, in preparation for the new policy, have substantially increased their operations in the search and rescue (SAR) zone off the Libyan coast.

Il Giornale reports that a total of ten NGO migrant transport vessels are currently operating in the SAR zone. Only one of the ships is Italian.

On Monday, the ‘Mare Jonio’, a ship operated by the Italian-based NGO Mediterranea Saving Humans was given permission to dock at a port in Italy to offload 31 migrants.

The German NGO Mission Lifeline’s ‘Eleonore’, despite being banned from entering Italian waters, also was able to disembark 104 migrants on Monday. Similarly to other NGO ships whose captains have no regard for the law, the Eleonore forced its way into Italian waters before it was intercepted by the Italian police and then escorted to the Pozzallo port.

After declaring a ‘state of emergency’, Eleonore’s captain Klaus Peter Reisch disregarded the ban and entered Italian waters anyway.

After all of the migrants onboard the vessel were allowed to disembark, Italian police then seized the ship.

A spokeswoman for the European Commission said that steps to ensure that the migrants are distributed to various European Union member states were being taken.

Sigh...Salvini what have you done... :cry:
Italy’s new globalist government invites NGOs to offload more migrants

A migrant transport ferry that has been continuously shuttling mostly military-aged migrant men into Europe this summer has announced that Italy’s new leftist government has permitted it to offload 82 migrants at Lampedusa island.

Seventy percent of the individuals onboard the ship are military-aged men.

The ‘Ocean Viking’, a migrant transport vessel operated by the NGOs SOS Mediterranee and Doctors Without Borders, announced Saturday that Italian authorities gave the ship the go-ahead to begin sailing to Lampedusa island.

The ship reported that it had been six days since it had picked up this latest group of migrants before it was given permission to dock.

58 men, six women, and 17 minors are currently onboard the ship.

Previously, under the nationalist-populist Salvini government, Italy’s ports were closed to these NGO human transporters.

Now that leftist globalists are back in charge of Italy, the ports have seemingly been reopened to the third world masses.

Italy’s new government will once again begin allowing NGO human trafficker helpers to bring as many loads of mainly military-aged migrant man into Europe as possible.

Populist VOX leader: “Salvini was ousted from government by EU plot”

The leader of the Spain’s national populist VOX party has blamed the European Union for pressuring Italian politicians to oust Matteo Salvini from the government.

Santiago Abascal, the leader of the Spanish populist VOX party, spoke at an annual event hosted by the national-conservative Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) in Rome. Other prominent right-wing populist leaders like Hungary’s PM Viktor Orbán were also in attendance.

During his speech, Abascal stated that he believed that technocrats in Brussels had plotted to remove Salvini from Italy’s government to maintain the flow of cheap labor coming into Europe, Italy’s Il Giornale reports.

“Spain and Italy have common borders and the Spanish and Italians share the concern to protect their borders from the migratory invasions caused by European oligarchies flooding our countries with cheap labor,” Abascal said.

“It is clear that Minister Salvini was the victim of what he had denounced for 18 months, that Italians are less and less the masters of their destiny, which once again was decided between Brussels and Strasbourg,” the Spanish populist added.

Throughout his talk, the VOX leader also spoke at length about the insidious nature of the unaccountable globalist bureaucrats who are currently in control of the EU.

“The political, economic and cultural oligarchies of Europe have betrayed the Europeans and are taking our nations down a dead-end street, and that is why we are all here.”

“Because with their relativist politics, they are attacking the cultural and religious European tradition. And with the politics of open borders, they are eroding the security and the freedom in our streets, especially for our women, and they are destroying our culture and our civilization.”

“They attack us with massive taxes. They govern us from far away places, people whom we have not elected.”

“They impose policies for which we have not voted. They are robbing us of our cultural identity, the right to property, the family, the nation. They are robbing us of Europe, the Europe we love,which wants to convert our land.”

Abascal wrapped up his address with a few comments about the party’s chances in Spain’s upcoming election in November.

“I am convinced that in the upcoming general elections on November 10th, Vox will consolidate its presence in the Spanish parliament, where we have proven to be the only alternative to progressive policies imposed by the left and approved of by the right,” he said.

The Spanish populist slammed the establishment parties, saying that they’ve become “increasingly difficult to differentiate, so it would be perfectly understandable if they ran together in the elections.”

Sea Watch captain Carola Rackete brought murderers, rapists and torturers to Italy

Carola Rackete, the infamous captain of the NGO migrant transport vessel Sea-Watch 3, brought three men who ran a migrant detention center in Libya where migrants were raped, tortured, and murdered.

According to a report by Il Giornale, three of the 40 migrants who were picked up by Rackete’s boat are men who’ve been accused of raping, torturing, and murdering people in Libya. The suspects are said to have been arrested in the reception center in Messina, Italy.

Police had originally concealed the arrests which reportedly occurred on the same day that the migrants disembarked from the ship.

“The Captain transported three immigrants accused of torture on the Sea Watch,” Franco Grilli of Il Giornale writes.

“We cannot rule it out, but we have no precise information,” Sea Watch spokesman Ruben Neugebauer told German news agency DPA about the report.

The three men have been formally accused of ‘a criminal association dedicated to the management of an illegal prison center’, complete with torture, rape, kidnapping and even murder.

In response to the news, Italy’s most trusted politician and leader of the national populist Lega party, Matteo Salvini, wrote: “Not only did she violate the laws and rammed a Guardia di Finanza patrol boat; on June 29th Carola Rackete of the Sea Watch 3 would have unloaded three immigrants accused of violence, rape, kidnapping, murder in Italy. Democratic Party (PD) parliamentarians had demanded the landing of all immigrants, including those who are now suspected of being ferocious criminals.”

According to Chiara Giannini, who cites ‘reliable sources’, the new interior minister Luciana Lamorgese had asked for the embarrassing news not to be published. But instead, members of the real press made the arrests public, along with the names of the three suspects – Mohammed Condè, 27, Hameda Ahmed, 26 and Mahmoud Ashuia, 24.

Condé is from Guinea, whereas Ahmed and Ashuia Egyptian.

Kidnapped Italian Aid Worker Allegedly Forced to Convert to Islam

Italian intelligence officials have claimed that kidnapped aid worker Silvia Romano is alive and was forced to convert to Islam and marry a Somalian man.

The 23-year-old Italian national was kidnapped in Kenya in November of last year and taken prisoner in the village of Chakama, 50 miles from Nairobi.

Intelligence officials said she was then taken to territory in southern Somalia controlled by the radical Islamist organisation al-Shabab. Her captors then forced her to convert to Islam, Il Giornale reports.

The paper claims Italian intelligence heard about Romano’s situation through local sources, but added that there was no reliable information as to her whereabouts or her current status.

Intelligence officials had planned on executing a military intervention to rescue Romano. That option was ruled out in response to news that her captors have taken her to Somalia, which has far fewer reliable allies.

Instead, officials have sought to find the captors and negotiate a ransom for her release. So far, they have been unsuccessful.

The news comes less than a week after one of six Nigerian aid workers was killed after being kidnapped by jihadists in northeast Nigeria.

Charity group Action Against Hunger, which employed the six aid workers, commented: “Action Against Hunger condemns in the strongest terms this assassination and urgently calls for the release of the hostages.”

European women travelling to Africa have been targetted many times in the past by jihadist criminals. Last year, two Scandinavian women were hacked to death in Morocco’s Atlas mountains.

The suspects, who filmed themselves pledging allegiance to Islamic State, had beheaded one of the women. Moroccan and Danish authorities labelled the incident as an act of terror.
She's just learned a very important lesson in life. Or not..Some female Aid workers never wake up.

Italy: Migrant murders two police officers and leaves three injured in police HQ shooting

Two Italian police officers have been shot dead at police headquarters in Trieste after a detained robbery suspect managed to steal one of their firearms and opened fire on Friday afternoon.

The suspect, a Dominican migrant who has been described as having ‘psychiatric problems’, is said to have asked to use the bathroom before he grabbed a police officer’s gun and shot him and another officer at point-blank range, the Daily Mail reports.

As a result of the shootout, two police officers – Pierluigi Rotta, 34, and Matteo Demenego, 31 – died at the hospital because of their injuries, while three other officers were injured. One of the two robbers was also injured.

Rotta, from Pozzuoli but originally from Naples, had served with the force in Trieste since June 2016, while Demenego was assigned to Trieste’s police department in September of 2013. Demenego had just celebrated his birthday a week earlier.

The robbers – two brothers, aged 29 and 32 – were initially able to escape following the shootout, but were apprehended by police shortly after.

The Mayor of Trieste, Orlando Pocci, described the attack as a “tragedy which leaves our community speechless”.

In a tweet, the State Police wrote: ‘Police Chief Gabrielli and Interior Minister Lamorgese are reaching Trieste to support families of Pierluigi and Matteo and expressing sympathy to the women and men of the police headquarters in Via Tor Bandena and to all of Trieste.’

The shooting comes just days after a stabbing rampage at police headquarters in Paris which saw a disgruntled employee and Islamic convert stab four police officers to death.

Salvini seeks to unite Italian right with Roma rally

Italy's former firebrand interior minister Matteo Salvini held a mass rally in Rome on Saturday which he hopes will propel him to leadership of the country's disparate right-wing parties.

Image

A crowd of over 100,000 almost halve a million people thronged the Rome piazza, ferried in from around the country by eight special trains and 400 coaches for the "Italian Pride" demonstration.

"We were right to abandon this government," the head of the far-right League party thundered, after speeches by a string of far-right leaders as well as billionaire former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi.

The anti-migrant Salvini pulled support from the previous populist government over the summer in a bid to spark elections he was convinced he could win to govern the eurozone's third-largest economy alone.

That plan failed when his former coalition partner, the anti-establishment Five Star Movement, sealed a deal with the centre-left Democratic Party to form a new, pro-European government.

After suffering a blip, the League's popularity has risen slightly again in the opposition role Salvini is more used to.

"I want to live in a free country, where you can govern without waiting for a phone call from (German Chancellor Angela) Merkel or (French President Emmanuel) Macron," the eurosceptic Salvini said.

Recent opinion polls put the anti-immigration party at between 30 to 33 percent of voter intentions, well ahead of the Five Star (M5S) and Democratic Party (PD), which have dropped slightly to between 18 and 20 percent each.

With the current left-leaning government seeking to change the electoral law to prevent Salvini triumphing alone at the next elections, the 46-year-old hopes to unite parties on the right and centre-right under his leadership.

That, however, will not be an easy task.

Forza Italia head Berlusconi, 83, whose party has been in a lengthy slump, appears open to just such an alliance, along with the smaller, far-right Brothers of Italy.

"We're here in this piazza because we have a big responsibility, to answer our people's call for unity," Berlusconi said, attacking the current government as "the most left-wing" since the war.

Brothers of Italy leader Giorgia Meloni, who had earlier complained that only League banners were visible on the podium, vowed to fight what she called "the Islamisation of Europe".

"Let's fight this battle together beyond the confines of individual parties, without selfishness and we will be unstoppable," Meloni said.

Some Forza Italia members had voiced unhappiness about the presence of neo-fascist party CasaPound at the rally.

Salvini in August had refuted the idea of a tie-up with Forza Italia, saying the League "needs nothing and no-one", but on Saturday he reversed course and appealed for unity.

"I would like that, since the team always wins and never alone, the embrace of this square should also go to Giorgia Meloni and Silvio Berlusconi, because together we win," Salvini said after his speech.

City needs love

Political analysts say Salvini has set his sights on taking Rome and hopes the right-wing alliance could carry him to victory in key upcoming regional elections, potentially setting him up for a win on a national level.

"Now there's only one thing to do, go to the polls because we other Italians, we citizens have the right to vote," League supporter Marco Diurno, 58, told AFP. "Let's hope that Salvini returns us to an Italy of dignity."

The next general election is not due until 2023, but the current governing coalition of former foes is shaky and might not last.

Salvini has waged war on Rome's mayor, M5S member Virginia Raggi, calling for her resignation, and has launched a petition demanding she step down now, two years before her term is due to end.

'Hands off Rome'

Raggi, 41, has come under intense fire for the city's ongoing garbage crisis and beleaguered transport services, which have existed for decades. She has blamed the problems on organised crime and corruption in previous administrations.

"Today we still hear many politicians who have miraculous recipes for Rome and for Italy, politicians who have governed in the previous decades," Raggi said after the right-wing rally.

"If you have all these recipes why didn't you apply them when you were governing?" she asked on Facebook.

Italy: Migrants riot and set asylum center ablaze

Angry, entitled migrants rioted and set fire to an asylum center in the northern Italian city of Turin after far-left Antifa members declared a hunger strike.

The mayhem broke out at migrant repatriation center (CPR) in Turin when migrants housed in the facility began protesting against what they perceive to be ‘inhumane conditions’, Italian broadcaster TGCOM24 reports.

A group of asylum center guests set fire to eight housing units – the so-called ‘purple’ and ‘yellow’ wings of the housing complex.

It took several firefighting brigades more than an hour to put out the fire. Police were also summoned to calm the situation.

The day before, a group of far-left Antifa members declared a hunger strike to ‘protest’ against the free food served and free healthcare administered at the facility, as well as free roof provided over the heads of the migrants.

Tensions at the facility have been mounting since late August, when migrants rioted, set fires, and hurled rocks at police officers. The incident saw three people arrested and left one police officer with multiple broken fingers.

A few days later a security guard working at the asylum was injured after four migrants tried to escape the facility.

In October, angry migrants clashed with Greek police and set fire to asylum centers on two separate occasions – one at a camp on the island of Samos and the other at a camp on the island of Lesbos. One of the incidents left two dead while the other left hundreds of migrants without proper shelter.

Police and soldiers were attacked with bricks at an illegal alien Muslim migrant-wannabe repatriation centre in Turin over the weekend in just the latest case of violence at the center

The illegal migrants in the centre tore bricks off the walls of a structure and climbed onto the roof of a housing module before raining the bricks down on police officers, wounding 13 people, Il Giornale reports.

Police have stated that they are examining CCTV evidence to confirm their suspicions that the five migrants involved in the violence against the officers were originally from North Africa. The incident comes just a month after residents of the centre set the entire building complex on fire which caused thousands of euros worth of damage, destroying a canteen and several dormitories.

Less than a month after the last revolts, on the evening of January 4, prisoners set fire to three sections of the the migrant prison [CPR or “permanent center for repatriations,” camps for undocumented migrants] Corso Brunelleschi in Turin, Italy.

Another incident took places two weeks later when migrants set their mattresses on fire along with setting fire to other objects. In the ensuing chaos, five police officers were injured.
The city of Turin has had problems with illegal migrant violence for years, with the former Olympic Village, built to house athletes during the 2006 Winter Olympics, being turned into a virtual no-go zone by migrants and far-left extremists where police would not enter.

African migrants even led a large-scale riot in November of 2016 with one migrant claiming the radical Islamic terror attack on the Bataclan nightclub in Paris in 2015 had been the “revenge of the excluded”. Around 300 migrants took part in the rioting, throwing bottles and rocks while yelling “racist” at Italians who passed by them.

In December of 2018, populist League leader Matteo Salvini, who was serving as Interior minister at the time, spearheaded an eviction of illegal African migrants from the former Olympic Village in Turin..

Locals were terrified as African migrants rioted, throwing projectiles and screaming threats at passers-by in a protest against “racist” Italians in Turin. Another incident took places two weeks later when Muslims set their mattresses on fire along with setting fire to other objects. In the ensuing chaos, five police officers were injured.

The rioters are among 1,500 Africans illegally squatting in Turin’s abandoned Olympic village. Most of the men are in their twenties and while there are some who work on the black market, many complain about having nothing to do.

“You Italians — tell your children that we are not dogs. Keep them quiet because our patience will end sooner or later,” one warned. Another cheered the Bataclan massacre in which 89 people were murdered, many of whom were reportedly tortured, hailing it as a “revenge of the excluded”. “One dead of ours [Africans], one death of yours,” he cried.

The trouble started when around 300 residents of the former Olympics site took to the streets. They blocked traffic, uprooted signposts, overturned garbage bins, and hurled stones and bottles while screaming “racist” and “bastards” at passers-by. “The Italians are racist and the police control us,” the migrants railed.
African illegal alien Muslim migrants riot in the streets of Florence to demand an end to Italian “racism.”

In December, 2019, illegal alien Muslim migrant wannabes from North Africa living in the San Ferdinando tent city blocked the port gate of Gioia Tauro and attacked police as they demanded immigration documents and housing immediately. Then the Muslim thugs marched towards Reggio Calabria, unleashing violence even in the city.

In March 2018, illegal alien Muslim migrants throw rocks and bottles at Italian police. The migrants wannabes stood defiant in the face of the police’s powerful water cannons as they were cleared from Indipendenza square, near Rome’s Termini station. They occupied the small square in Rome in defiance of an order to leave an adjacent office building where as many as 800 had been squatting. and shields.

Italy’s globalist regime increases spending on migrant reception facilities

Italy’s exceedingly unpopular government has announced that it will increase its payments to migrant reception centers, rolling back former Interior Minister Salvini’s policy which saw daily allowances given to migrants decreased from €35 to €19.

Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese’s move looks to breathe new life into the country’s migrant NGO economy and gives her an opportunity to thumb her nose at the populist League’s Matteo Salvini, Il Giornale reports.

The additional funds to be given to the reception centers courtesy of the Italian taxpayer t is expected to raise the daily reimbursement for each hosted migrant by about 2-3 euros.

Matteo Salvini, Italy’s most popular political figure, had harsh words for the plan that would take money that could be used to take care of suffering Italians to pay for the welfare migrant invaders.

“After reopening the ports, the government reopens the Italian people’s portfolios, increasing the money for those who welcome asylum seekers. We had reduced from 35 euros to a European average between 19 and 26 euros per day on compensation for every immigrant. This government restarts the business linked to the landings. Shame! “.

In addition to the increased daily allowance for migrants, the new policy will also reimburse migrant reception facilities that offer complementary healthcare services. Asylum centers can also receive more funding if increased security is needed on the premises of the facility.

According to the latest polls, Salvini’s League party remains, by far, the most popular party in the country with nearly one in three Italians supporting it. Giorgia Meloni’s national-conservative Brothers of Italy has also gained ground since the election, with recent polls showing that the party enjoys the support of more than 11 percent.

Just like our Dutch Geert Wilders. :wot:
Salvini trial over alleged “migrant kidnapping” authorized by Italy’s globalist-controlled Senate

Italy’s globalist-controlled Senate has voted to indict Matteo Salvini – Italy’s most popular politician, former Interior Minister, and leader of the populist League party – on charges of alleged “migrant kidnapping”.

The trumped-up charges filed by Italian globalists date back to last summer when then-Interior Minister Salvini prevented 130 migrant invaders from disembarking at an Italian port.

The Senate’s decision to uphold a committee decision to strip Salvini of his parliamentary immunity overturns a long-held Italian law which gives ministers parliamentary immunity for actions they’ve taken while in office.

A proposal put forward by the national-conservative Brothers of Italy (FdL) and center-right Forza Italia that would’ve blocked the Senate’s authorization to proceed with the prosecution, failed to reach an absolute majority of 160 votes and was rejected, Il Giornale reports.

“They send me to trial for blocking the landing of 130 immigrants for four days waiting for five European countries to accept redistribution. I have nothing to be ashamed of, on the contrary, I will go to that courtroom claiming what I did. I am proud of what I did as a minister,” Matteo Salvini said on Radio Radio.

Last month, Salvini went so far as to advise his fellow League party members in the Senate to vote in favor of his indictment.

Prior to the yesterday’s vote in the Senate, Salvini took to Twitter, writing: “If I’ll stand trial, I’ll explain to the judges that I had a duty to defend the Italian citizens, and I will serenely walk into the hearing room representing millions of Italians – for what I did was what they wanted: checking those who come into Italy and those who leave, as I would do in my home. When you do nothing wrong, then there is nothing you should be afraid of.“

Senegalese migrant staged fake ‘racist’ attack by stabbing himself

By ARTHUR LYONS

A Senegalese migrant who claimed to be a victim of a racist knife attack on the streets of Sulmona – a city in the province of L’Aquila in Abruzzo – has now admitted that he actually stabbed himself and made the entire story up.

The incident occurred last July when Sadio Camara, a 27-year-old Senegalese national, arrived at the hospital reception center with a serious cut to his throat, claiming that he was on his way home from a migrant reception center when two men out of nowhere approached him, shouted racist insults at him, and attacked him with a knife, Il Giornale reports.

During the attack, the migrant claimed that one of the men hit him in the throat with a knife, just missing her carotid artery.

“We’ll teach you how to live,” they allegedly said to him while he fell to the ground.

The 27-year-old Senegalese migrant then went on to say that the two men stuffed him into their vehicle and drove him to an area where they tossed him into a ditch, where he would spend the entire night.

Following several months of investigation, the migrant’s story began to fall apart piece by piece as gave more and more conflicting information to police. Eventually, 27-year-old Camara confessed to police and admitted that there was no racist attack and that he had purposefully injured himself.

The 27-year-old Senegalese migrant could be charged for making up the crime.

Unfortunately, hate hoaxes in Europe have become increasingly common. Last November, Voice of Europe reported on a similar incident where a Somali-born Social Democratic Party (SDP) politician in Finland falsely claim that he was forced to kick a passenger out of his taxi after the passenger allegedly hurled racist abuse at him. Abdirahim Hussein, the SDP politician and taxi driver who had previously called Finland a racist country, later admitted that he lied about the whole situation.

Salvini: Soros-backed NGO lawyers are helping North African boat migrants each Europe

Migrants from North Africa set sail on the Mediterranean already in possession of phone numbers of a Soros-funded organization’s lawyer in their pockets, said Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini in reference to a report from Italian daily Il Giornale.

The migrants contacted the lawyer while they were still sailing on a damaged rubber boat from Libya to Europe. The lawyer then filed an appeal on their behalf with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) while they were still at sea.

The case has been highlighted Salvini, leader of the conservative Lega party, who reacted in a tweet to the news:

“Crazy! With the collaboration of the lawyers of an association financed by Soros… In the meantime, the government welcomes everyone on the ferry at the expense of the Italians. Sooner or later we will vote …,” Salvini wrote.

Italian media also have reported that she converted to Islam while in captivity. Stockholm syndroom ?
Italian woman returns home after being held for 18 months by African kidnappers

Image

Wearing a surgical mask, disposable gloves and booties to guard against Covid-19, a young Italian woman returned to her homeland Sunday after 18 months as a hostage in eastern Africa.

Silvia Romano lowered her mask briefly to display a broad smile after she stepped off an Italian government plane at Rome-Ciampino International Airport. She hugged her mother and other family members, and touched elbows instead of shaking hands with Italian foreign minister Luigi Di Maio.

Romano, 24, was working as a volunteer with an Italian humanitarian group when she was abducted in November 2018 during an attack by gunman in Kenya. Italian premier Giuseppe Conte has thanked the Italian intelligence agents who worked for her release, which took place Friday in Somalia.

Romano was taken to the Italian Embassy in Mogadishu after she was freed. Rome-based prosecutors investigate crimes committed abroad against Italian citizens, and they are expected to question her about the kidnapping.

Italian news reports said the abductors eventually passed her into the hands of militants linked to Somalia’s al-Shabab Islamic extremists. Al-Shabab has been blamed for a series of kidnappings of foreigners along Kenya’s coast.

Friends and acquaintances in the Milan neighbourhood where Romano’s family lives applauded from windows, balconies and on the streets when the plane carrying Romano home landed in Rome.

Italian media also have reported that she converted to Islam while in captivity. Neither her family nor Italian officials have commented on the assertion. When she got off the plane, Romano wore a loose-fitting garment over her hair and African outfit.
