The protest against the Green Pass returns to the streets. Wednesday, July 28, in Rome, a demonstration organized by the “Free Choice Committee”, which defines itself as a “committee of free citizens, non-partisan and apolitical, open to anyone who intends to support full freedom of choice in health matters”. The event will consist of a torchlight procession in Piazza del Popolo in the capital: “Those who are silent agrees – supports the slogan of the event – If you too are against the obligation of the green pass, now is the time to prove it”. Various representatives of the political world will also take part in the event, from the Northern League’s Armando Siri, Alberto Bagnai, Claudio Borghi and Simone Pillon to the parliamentarians of the Mixed Group Vittorio Sgarbi and Gianluigi Paragone.
Affaritaliani.it interviewed the Northern League player Armando Siri, father of the Salvinian Flat Tax.
What is the meaning of the event you organized on Wednesday in Rome?
“The demonstration was called by the Free Choice Committee and I joined as did others who like me share the need for the vaccine issue not to become a topic of” faith “or” ideology “as it has been presented for some time. of time now but it is only a health issue to be observed with scientific data and evidence.It is unacceptable that discrimination can be created between citizens, between those who have chosen to get vaccinated and those who do not because this is in full contrast with Art. 36 of the European Regulation on the Vaccine Pass Institute and against the fundamentals of our system “.
Will there be many members of the League? Also of other parties?
“Yes, of course, the event has no party flags, I know that many colleagues participate in a transversal way but also many exponents from the world of entertainment, sport, doctors, professionals”.
Why are you contesting the Green Pass?
“Why does the data tell us that fortunately there are no reasons to impose new restrictions and limitations on citizens and businesses. Did we reopen everything when we had ICUs at 30% and put back constraints when they are at 2%? come back. Then excuse me first the virus in the bar and restaurant was dangerous if we were standing now is it dangerous if we are seated? If it were not serious you could say that you are bordering on ridicule. I wonder why in the official announcements never and I say never said that COVID can be cured in 99% and can be treated at home. The Senate has approved a motion that commits the Government to develop a protocol on home therapies but it has remained a dead letter. It seems normal to you. ? Do you think it is correct? Here it is not a question of being no vax or pro vax here it is a matter of having a minimum of discernment and asking questions. I have absolutely nothing against those who choose to get vaccinated, 99% of elderly and frail subjects have it done and so well. The risk / benefit ratio went in favor of the benefit. But this is not the case for other categories of healthy subjects and perhaps young people and children. Because no one says that 99.5% of people who have had COVID are cured, we are talking about more than 4 million individuals who have developed healing immunity and therefore the only ones capable of not being contagious. On the contrary, unfortunately, even those who received the second dose of the vaccine were found to be contagious. In short, it takes rationality, logic and common sense. Freedom of choice and no discrimination this is the sense of the Committee’s initiative “.
If the premier goes ahead with the Green Pass, should the League leave the government?
“It is thanks to the firmness of Salvini and the Lega that the obligation of the Green Pass for metro, trams, buses, planes, trains, hotels and holiday homes has not passed. To go to work or school and the parameters for the ‘entry into the risk areas by canceling the RT of the contagion and passing through the occupation of intensive care that someone wanted at 5% for the red zone and instead we got at least 20%. We do not have the majority and therefore we cannot do everything as we would like and would not have wanted the Green Pass because, I repeat, the emergency conditions do not exist to compress even only temporarily the fundamental freedoms and then also damage our economy. In these three days hundreds of thousands of cancellations have fallen in hotels and vacation places. Being in the Government has prevented an extremist drift, if we had not been there, the most intransigent and restrictive line would have prevailed. In the Government we must remain to prevent further new restrictions while in Parliament we must work to change this decree. In opposition everything would be easier but we would not be able to achieve anything concrete. If we have vaccinated and not vaccinated on our side, because I repeat the question is about free choice, not a hydrological position, then surely we will be stronger also in the “Palace”. And if the situation were to take an irrational drift, well at that point it will be the Secretary to take the appropriate decisions because even the stones would have clear that COVID has nothing to do with it but is just yet another political provocation “.
Do you think that Italy and the world are moving towards a sort of health dictatorship?
“Certainly, at least for Italy, we have seen restrictions on individual freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution that only two years ago no one could even fear. But as they say” fear makes ninety “and in the face of fear that is an irrational feeling, they collapse or even the most solid banks are bent. After all, the Constitutions are only pieces of paper if they do not vibrate in the hearts of the citizens “.
Aren’t you afraid that with your demonstration the League will be compared to the toughest fringes of the no vax? “Absolutely not. And then I repeat it is not our demonstration but I personally like other colleagues have joined it because in conscience we feel we have to defend the right of choice in terms of vaccination. I repeat, it is not a war of religion, and I am neither No Vax or Pro Vax, I observe events with a critical spirit, I read and study the data and I defend the principles of the Constitutional Order “.
