<nettime> BERLUSCONIMANIA: THE REVENGE!!!


BERLUSCONIMANIA: THE REVENGE!!!!

THE ATMOSPHERE While the criminal idiots from the dim, distant terrorism
of the seventies keep on their actions (the crazy murder of a minister =
assistant) , there is (at last!) a mass answer to the political situation
in Italy.

A 3 MILLION manifestation in Rome's Circo Massimo (the old charriot-race
stadium of movie "Ben Hur" but the crowd reached to the Colosseum), called
by italian Trade Unions.

THE SCENE
Berlusconi keeps on mambo/dancing on his starry staircase (expressing the
fever of neo-liberism & TV-POWER) & he seems to be followed by strange
fellows: MR BLAIR is with him (what about the socialist pact?) & several
european countries seem to follow the rightwing dance: Portugal, Danmark
etc...

The dance number is becoming impressive.
THE MUSIC
Mambo number 5 by Perez Prado (of course)

THE MANIFESTATION
3 MILLIONS PEOPLE have met in the heart of Rome showing the best energies
and thought of what is left of political ideas.

THE PARTECIPANTS=
All social classes,all social groups, all trade unions, all students,
all no-global groups, & families & children & dogs & ....

THE SLOGANS
"WE ARE ITALY"
"Against terrorism"
"Dissension is not terrorism"
"Vaticano do your business, we will think about the school" (from
students groups & very stylishly translated)
"X our children"
"Yes to democracy and rights"
"We only like one unemployed: Berlusconi you are fired!"

& MORE TO COME!!
Ciao
