    Former Interior Minister and leader of the League Party, Matteo Salvini tweeted a video of the protests. In the text of his tweet he said “illegal immigrants attack our police with the slogan: ‘Documents immediately for all’. But for the left, Italy’s priority is to abolish the Security Decrees.”

    “You block documents, we block the streets!” The illegals also shout: “We have the right to have documents and housing! We have the right to have documents for all immediately! Housing for all!

    “This morning, we want documents for all immediately! Documents for all immediately! Documents for all immediately!” they chant.

    When asked why they were protesting, one of the migrants replied: “I don’t know.”

    Instead he wanted to know: “Who are you? The journalists replied that they were from a newspaper, but the protester could give no clear answer as to why they were demonstrating about “documents”.

    The leader of the League is still in trouble for having blocked 131 migrants aboard the ship Gregoretti, and is being charged with kidnapping. Salvini spoke in Fuori dal Coro, on broadcaster Rete 4: “Today I received a complaint: I am supposedly guilty of the crime of aggravated kidnapping for having deprived 131 immigrants present on the Gregoretti ship of their personal freedom, and risk up to 15 years in prison.”

    On July 28 this year, the Gregoretti ship with 131 migrants on board they picked up in the middle of the sea, sailed to Italy. Being a military vehicle, the Coast Guard ship headed first to the port of Lampedusa and then to the port of Augusta, with the hope of landing the migrants.

    Transport Minister Danilo Toninelli appealed to the EU Member States to take charge of the people on board the ship: “Gregoretti has moored at the port of Augusta, as is normal for a military ship. Now the EU should respond, because the migration issue concerns the whole continent”. But nobody answered.

    The EU simply turned a deaf ear to Italy while NGOs started ranting against the methods put in place by the then Interior Minister, Salvini. After days of a tug of war, the migrants were taken off the boat.

    The attorney’s office of Syracuse opened a file on the Gregoretti ship to check the sanitary conditions of the ship and of course those of the people on board. The attorney of Syracuse, Fabio Scavone declared that the sanitary situation was no longer tenable and Salvini was blamed for this.

    On September 21, the former Minister of the Interior received a letter delivered at home from the Catania public prosecutor’s office.

    The Catania ministers’ tribunal asked the president of the Senate for authorization to charge Salvini. In short, all the charges against him will be reinstated. “I think it is a shame,” said the leader of the League. “A minister who defended the borders of his country could be tried for dealing with the security of his citizens. I would like to know how much this process will cost the community. I am sorry that Italian courts, today so clogged up, have to waste time investigating a minister who did what the Italians asked him to do.”

    He added: “In a normal country, Carola [Rackete] would be in jail, and with her maneuver, docking in a port that had been expressly forbidden to her, she even risked killing border agents”.

    Meanwhile, mass rejections of illegal migrants is alleged to have been in violation of international law, reported by Italian daily La Repubblica, which is the accusation contained in a report written by Charles Heller of Forensic Oceanography, based at Goldsmiths, at the University of London.

    According to this report, on November 7, 2018, to coordinate the rescue operation of a group of migrants then brought back to Libya by the Panamanian merchant ship Nivin, such transgressions were committed.

    According to the substantial report on migrants, Italy and Europe had applied this “model of practice”, under Salvini 13 times in the last year. The very serious accusations come from Forensic Oceanography and the Forensic Architecture Agency.

    But what is the institution that accuses the Italian government and who is it financed by? The Forensic Architecture Agency, says it “is a research agency, based at Goldsmiths, University of London. We undertake advanced spatial and media surveys on cases of human rights violations, with and on behalf of communities affected by political violence, organizations for human rights, prosecutors, environmental justice groups and media organizations”.

    The agency uses an open source survey, through which it realizes and constructs figurative and physical models, 3D animations and cartographic platforms. Clearly its research requires quite a lot of money.

    The most curious thing about the agency is found, in fact, under “funding”: in addition to the European Research Council, we find a series of “liberal” foundations that have a distinct political agenda, undoubtedly contrary to the policies of sovereign nations on immigration and closed ports.

    Among these we find the Oak Foundation, the David & Elaine Potter Foundation but, above all, the Open Society Foundation of the financier George Soros, also financier of the American Democratic Party.

    Through his “philanthropic” network, Soros floods Italy with money to shape it in its image and likeness, and reveals a very specific project that, beyond the strenuous efforts of the progressives, threatens to undermine Italy’s sovereignty.

    Between 2017 and 2018, according to the survey published by the Adnkronos agency, there is talk of over eight and a half million dollars paid into the coffers of those institutions that set themselves the goal of creating a “more open and welcoming society”. In short: open borders.

      The current culture of the illegal migrants that are being run by pro-mass migration NGOs is one of undeserved privilege, and at the expense of the Italian taxpayer. Not only in their countries of origin, but in Italy as well, they are being constantly indoctrinated by globalist NGOs that they have a perfect right to enter the EU illegally and then live off the European taxpayer, even if they have no basis for residence, or any skills to contribute to the Italian economy.

      Soros money and its influence is a subtheme of this whole article. It fuels the pro-migration NGOs, the so-called “rescue” ships and operations in the Mediterranean, and those who are now stirring up illegal migrants in demonstrations in Calabria and Puglia. And as this Free West Media article clearly also shows, it also funds an NGO behind the reinstatement of charges against Salvini. There are many hidden hands here, and it is always for the better that they are exposed.
