Italian daily Il Giornale, reported scenes from the “Wild West” with cars and houses damaged by rock-throwing between opposing factions of illegal immigrants.
The fighting occurred last week in Via Tenda in Ventimiglia, in the Gianchette neighbourhood, which faces the riverbed of the Roja river.
For years now an unauthorized squalid tent camp for migrants has been tolerated by authorities. Those migrants who do not want to go to the Red Cross reception center, go to the Roja Park insted where they receive free food and lodging anyway.
Some prefer the tent camp because they fear being identified by the police.
“We are held hostage by these people!” the Italian inhabitants shouted. “It is a district under siege, where they are the masters.” In fact, every day is the scene of robberies, fights and other criminal incidents.
The explosion of violence began around midday when some migrants confronted each other, for reasons still under investigation by the Carabinieri. Soon the stones and rocks started flying, damaging four parked cars and the windows of two houses.
“When they saw me leaning out,” one resident told the daily, “they grabbed a stone and threw it at me, damaging the window.” The situation, therefore, was described as one of high tension. Elderly inhabitants stood around outside to inspect the damages the next day after calm had returned.
Only a few days ago a group of Libyans had savagely beaten an African, breaking two teeth, to take away his phone and the little money in his pocket.
Violence is also fueled by alcohol abuse. Despite the danger to hygiene and public order, no institution has come forward to clear the squalid field inhabited by dozens and dozens of foreigners, including women and children.
And it is also as a result of this dire situation that the Lega Nord, in Ventimiglia, became the winning party, with 29.66 percent of the vote.
It is a debacle, however, for the Democratic Party, the party of the mayor of Ventimiglia, Enrico Ioculano, which has collapsed to 11.25 percent.
