About 200 people moved for a torchlight procession from Piazza Vittoria, the place of the meeting, to the headquarters of the Campania Region, in via Santa Lucia, to protest a few hours after the obligation to show the green certificate in all workplaces, both public and private. At the head of the procession, supported by the demonstrators, a sort of funeral shrine complete with candles to represent the “vigil for the death of democracy”.
Among the participants, among others, the ASL Napoli 1 doctor Carlo Arnese and the writer Ornella Mariani. The demonstration was followed by a large line-up of the police, the march moved peacefully and, net of more or less heated slogans, there were no moments of tension or clashes between demonstrators and agents. Protesters walked the waterfront, parading past restaurants and inviting employees and customers to join them. During the march there was no lack of criticism of the government, with insults both to the premier Mario Draghi both to the governor of Campania Vincenzo De Luca, and many have shouted that the current executive measures are “the new fascism”.
There was no shortage of denial-based speeches either. Like those of one of the demonstrators, who had a star of David on his chest, signifying the analogy between the unvaccinated and the persecuted Jews. The man, listing all the events in which he participated, the 17 fines he took because he was without a mask, the gatherings for Italy’s victory at the European Championships and for Gay Pride, wondered: “Why is it a pandemic of the unvaccinated? and are the unvaccinated okay? “. The answer was that “Then there is something wrong, let’s ask ourselves a few questions, why do we never end up up there?”, Referring to the Intensive Care.
Nor did he miss the jokes, when another protester asked him, to point out that he did not get sick: “Let me see the tube you have.” Referring to those who demonstrated in Rome, the man added: “At one point they had to intubate them with flags, with poles”, to highlight that there has not been a boom in infections, triggering laughter. And, a few seconds later, he waved his arms pretending to be sick and said: “I forgot the mask, help, give me a mask, please, I miss the air.”
Then the procession moved towards the Region. “All left,” said a protester over the megaphone. “It’s just a direction of travel”, he immediately replied, laughing, another behind him. Along the way, the slogans heard in other similar events: “No green pass”, “Yes democracy”, “hands off the children”, alternated with some insults towards De Luca and Draghi. Arriving in front of the headquarters of the Region, the altar was placed on the ground and a brief garrison was held with various interventions during which the demonstrators tried to involve journalists and policemen in the protest.
