“In fact, in recent years the bills for the fight against homotransphobia stopped precisely because the expressions used to identify the motive for hatred, therefore homophobia and transphobia, were not considered precise enough to guarantee the determination of the penal precept, as indeed the professor of Comparative Public Law of the University La Sapienza Angelo Schillaci also recently recalled ”, recall the pentastellates.
“In the light of this reflection, what Italia Viva is doing appears simply as a sinister attempt to give a side to the right and ensure that this fundamental law does not see the light at all. As the 5 Star Movement we will not allow it, the law against homotransphobia can no longer wait. Italia Viva tell us if you are with the LGBTI community or if you are using it for political gain. Because everything points to this second hypothesis ”, they conclude from the movement.
The response of Italia viva is not long in coming. The president of the Renzian senators Davide Faraone it bans propaganda and repeats in a post again: “As it stands, the law does not pass under the blows of secret votes in the Senate. Let’s think about those who suffer discrimination every day, not those who have to make ‘muscle and like’ revolutions ”. The Renzian deputy also follows the same line Marco Di Maio: “Is it more important to really approve a law against homophobia and discrimination or to approve the Zan bill? If the goal is the first, it must be said that the Zan bill as it is, in the Senate does not have the numbers; while with the proposed changes, we may soon have a law. The point is this ”.
“The proposals to amend the Zan bill formulated by Italia Viva leave me baffled. After having approved the text in the Chamber, they are now asking for changes on the same points on which there had been negotiations and they had given their consent. Renzi and Faraone, thus, throw off the mask and in one fell swoop delegitimize their Minister Elena Bonetti, the deputies and deputies of IV and Lucia Annibali herself, first signatory of the amendment that introduced article 1, which today IV would like to suppress . At the same time, they abandon the LGBT + movement, and in particular trans people, excluding the protection of gender identity “, said the senator of the Democratic Party Monica Cirinnà.
“Confidence in the law against homotransphobia? I am not aware that Draghi intends to speak out on this matter. And then the Renzians’ proposal for mediation is inadmissible. We do not play on people’s skin for calculations of political tactics ”. Franco Mirabelli, vice president of the dem group in the Senate, is following the Zan bill in the Justice Committee.
