Recalls for the governor Toti and the mayor Bucci: “Two years ago the Municipality and the Region signed the declaration of climate emergency, but since then only steps backwards have been taken”
Genoa – Demonstration today by the activists of Fridays For Future in Genoa. The procession started and reached Piazza De Ferrari.
The crowd of the pre-Covid years is a distant memory, but the new global climate strike tries to shake consciences again.
About 500 kids yelling at the governor Giovanni Toti and to the mayor Marco Bucci: “Come down, come down, you too manifest”. The message is clear, the organizers recall: “Two years ago the Municipality and the Region signed the climate emergency declaration, but still nothing has changedindeed we have only taken steps backwards. Let’s think of our Ecological Transition Minister, Roberto Cingolani, who continues to think about nuclear power, when the Italians voted against. According to Minister Cingolani, we are worse than pollution and rising seas because they are afraid of us “.
Banners, signs, green stripes on the cheeks, a bit of politics and a lot of music. “The end of Gaia will not come. People are wrong. After all, what do they know”, sings the voice of Caparezza that spreads from a small and powerful box, in front of the procession, which climbs from Brignole to De Ferrari. And the kids still believe it.
A little more, as often happens, when “Bella Ciao” starts under the Monumental bridge. But young people are keen to clarify: “The press will now exploit us, will say that we are the usual leftists. But we don’t care, for us it’s just a good song. We like it and we sing it“.
The protesters arrived in Piazza Matteotti, where a concert began.
