Protesters had crammed into Bologna’s Piazza Maggiore for a silent “sardine” flash mob last week to condemn the visit of Matteo Salvini. Carrying sardine-shaped signs and emblems, protesters tried to undermine Salvini’s support.
The sea of ”sardines” invaded Bologna, with more than 11 000 people responding to the appeal launched by four boys via Facebook against the League’s Paladozza convention, where the leader of the League took the stage to open the election campaign of Lucia Borgonzoni, candidate for the Emilia-Romagna region’s presidency.
The square has a capacity of 5 570 places, but the goal had been exceeded. Piazza Maggiore, in the heart of Bologna, filled up beyond the limit with 11 000 “sardines”, shouting “Bologna anti-fascist”.
On social networks the leaders of the “Sardine Movement” shared posts in favor of Secretary of the Democratic Party Nicola Zingaretti and the president of Emilia Romagna, Stefano Bonaccini.
The “sardines” then prepared another event entitled “6 000 sardines in Modena – Modena non Lega”, a somewhat more generic title than “against Salvini” which was started by their Bologna colleagues, but some nasty details are emerging on the promoters of the young “sardines”: Samar Zaoui and Jamal Houssein, both university students in their early twenties.
The media attention was focused on Samar after the former Interior Minister published some posts shared by the leader of the Modena “sardines” on Facebook. “One of the ‘democratic sardines’ that will be in the streets today in Modena against me, a little while ago invoked my murder by an executioner and depicted me upside down,” the leader of the League noted.
He said he was expecting “indignant reactions of journalists, politicians”. As can be clearly seen from some screenshots, Samar is a militant of the UU, a notoriously leftist union of students.
“Our region does not deserve to be the theater of the demagogy of the League. Emilia Romagna must not be freed by anyone, since we are already free since 1945 thanks to the Resistance,” the union noted.
Samar’s Facebook profile, has since been deleted. In his old post, the “sardine” promoter published the photo upside down of Salvini and wrote: “We would need a social executioner, those who appear in history, who after killing are branded as anarchists.”
Almeno qualcuno ne parla!
Aspetto reazioni e condanne da parte degli indignati di professione, oppure le minacce che vengono da sinistra sono meno gravi e minacciose…???https://t.co/vOH4x0yV2x

But the media has not yet taken notice of the death threats against Salvini. On Twitter Salvini questioned journalists: “I await reactions and condemnations from the indignant by profession, or are the threats that come from the left less serious and threatening?”
In response to the death threats he also tweeted kittens munching on sardines.

In May, the immigrant Bekim Dzelili was initially sentenced by the district court to 13 years in prison and deportation for life. He was found guilty of repeated aggravated child rape, the aggravated sexual abuse of a child, assault and unlawful threats. But the Swedish Court of Appeal has since reduced his prison sentence by one year and has canceled the deportation - the perpetrator may remain in Sweden because he has a "weak connection to his home country".
