Italy : DOWN WITH THE G7 IN TAORMINA Calendar of demos and initiatives

Sicilia contro il G7

On the 26th and 27th of may will be held in Taormina (in the area of Messina, Sicily) the summit of the G7.
Then, in this case, will join the summit the leaders of Germany, France, USA, UK, Japan, Canada and Italy with their delegations. Trump, Merkel, Hollande and the italian Prime Minister Gentiloni will meet to compare their opinions on specific topics: cyber control, smart cities, and social security against terrorism.


They have decided to do all of those terrible things in a symbol-place: Taormina, Sicily. Sicily is the european area most affected by disoccupation and emigration; Sicily is the island of the crumbling roads, the loss of water, the ruinous transport system.


In this specific and meaningful place the G7 leaders will arrive to devastate, more than they did in the past: as Americans, that thought about Sicily as a war zone, so they settled in a military radar ("M.U.O.S.") with a powerful and noxious electromagnetic impact; as the French, whose multinational have bought overall the totality of the public water in our island and now they are preparing to put their hands on the garbage-business.


Here are collected some of the local initiatives which will be held within the next two weeks:


11 to 13 may: manifestation in Bari against the meeting of g7 financial ministers
13 may : demo in Taormina of the regional coordination against g7 starting from Porta Catania, after open assembly in Piazza 9 Aprile
