Italy’s Covid pass: violence in protests sparked a national debate on fascism

Martin said thousands of people still line up each year on anniversaries, such as Mussolini’s birth, death and “March on Rome,” to visit his tomb in Predappio, 200 miles northeast of Rome, despite the fact he ran a repressive police state, and was responsible for brutal colonial campaigns and massacres during his 20 years in power. “Fascism never went away in this country,” said history professor Simon Martin, the author of several books on Italian fascism. “Italy has not confronted its past. There is no appetite for this, I think, on either side.” “[It] has a book of condolence which has to be changed on a regular basis because it fills up,” he said.

Members of the neo-fascist Forza Nuova were arrested in relation to the violent attacks in Rome. The Green Pass, which came into force last Friday, requires all workers — from café staff to care workers, taxi drivers to teachers — to show proof of vaccination, a negative test or recent recovery from infection. Italy — once Europe’s Covid-19 epicenter — now has the continent’s strongest vaccine mandate.

Fascist parties banned On October 9, the headquarters of Italy’s largest trade union and a hospital emergency ward in Rome were targeted during angry protests against the country’s Covid-19 “Green Pass.”

Forza Nuova’s lawyer Carlo Taormina told CNN the group is currently being dismantled and has not been active as a political movement for 20 months. In response to the violent scenes on October 9, tens of thousands of people demonstrated against fascism in Rome’s San Giovanni Square at the weekend. This week, Italian lawmakers in both the upper house Senate and lower house voted in favor of a motion put forward by the country’s center-left parties, which calls on Prime Minister Mario Draghi’s government to dissolve Forza Nuova and all movements of neo-fascist inspiration. Draghi and his Council of Ministers will now consult legal experts before announcing a decision.

The violence of the Green Pass protests on October 9 has led to mounting calls to dissolve neo-fascist groups in the country. Organizers canceled an anti Covid-19 green pass demo in the northeastern city of Trieste planned for Friday and Saturday, and urged protesters not to attend over fears of violence. A 1952 law banned the reconstitution of fascist parties in Italy, but they have reformed under alternative names, Martin told CNN during a visit to the Jewish Ghetto.
