Drug dealing, robbery and aggressions: Nigerians terrorize Padua [Padova]

Once again we talk about the Nigerian mafia: In less than 24 hours double episodes of degradation in the city center, and always on via Diego Valeri

There is no peace for the residents of the center of Padua, particularly for the immediate vicinity of via Diego Valeri, a road bordering the area occupied by the former gas facility, which has become for some time a meeting place for loiterers and drug addicts.

Taking up always new space recently in the local news are criminal foreigners, in particular of Nigerian nationality, so much so that in the municipal council the problem is beginning to be evaluated in a more serious and direct manner. The motion on the Nigerian mafia brought to the agenda by the director of Fratelli d’Italia [Brothers of Italy, Giorgia Meloni’s party] in Padua, Elena Cappellini, as reported by the local press, was approved with 18 votes in favor. The Nigerian mafia is a concrete problem and it is useless to turn away and talk of fantasies to minimize the extent.

Within the space of a few hours, at the troubled via Diego Valeri, there were two separate cases involving young foreign protagonists, first the theft in the interior of a restaurant, then a furious fight which involved a group of at least eight men of Nigerian nationality.

The first incident, last Monday January 13. In the middle of the night, and after closing time of the commercial business, the restaurant Antica Cina [Old China] was targeted. Using the concrete base of a street sign, two Africans, with faces exposed, repeatedly struck the window of the business until it was shattered. Once the breach was opened, one foreigner entered the location, taking a cash register, and then returned outside, where an accomplice was waiting for him. All the images were taken by a video surveillance camera installed in the immediate vicinity of the restaurant itself.

Not even 24 hours later, precisely the late afternoon of Tuesday 14 December [sic] January, a new incident of degradation, with the beating of an Italian drug addict by a gang of Nigerians, who began to fight among themselves.

It was about 6 pm, and as one of the witnesses, the lawyer Giorgio Ronzani, told Il Gazzettino, he was present at a scene “of unheard-of violence. An Italian, I believe a drug addict, was yelling for help while being submerged in a rain of kicks and punches.”

Afterward blows were exchanged among the same Africans, who began to throw themselves at each other. “The employees of the area’s offices came out to see what was happening. I also shouted, ‘Stop’. It is all useless”, recalled the witness. “In via Valeri they deal drugs every day,” reports Ronzani. “The owners of the looted restaurant are my clients. They wanted to open a recreational club in Guadenzio Passageway, in the place where a bar is now closed. The municipality, with the assessor Bressa, was also in favor because by opening gathering places the degradation of the drug dealers is eliminated. But now the Asian business people are afraid.”

As previously mentioned, the municipality has taken up the problem in a serious manner, talking openly of the Nigerian mafia, thanks to the motions of Fratelli d’Italia. Among the supporters is also Luigi Tarzia, an advisor to the security commission and to the municipality of Padua. “The phenomenon of the Nigerian mafia is in constant expansion. The areas hit hardest are the railway station and San Carlo all’Arcella. While in De Gasperi Square, thanks to private security, the African drug dealers have been kept away,” he maintains with pride.

  1. If the Italian police will not step up and do their job then there needs to be an arming of the population allowed or it will occur in spite of the law.

    Declare open season on such beasts with no bag limit, and the problem could be resolved in the space of an afternoon.

  2. No good deed goes unpunished.

    But the stupid asses elites are not inviting invaders because they believe in any sublime morals or principles. It is exactly the lack of morals and principles that renders them sheep and emasculated.


    Open Society Foundations and Associazione Carta di Roma @#

    Associazione Carta di Roma was founded in December 2011 to put into execution a moral code for correct information on immigration. Since February 2016 the “Glossary” of the Charter of Rome (Carta di Roma) is an integral part of the “Unified charter of duties of the journalist”. Permanent invited members are the UN High Council for Refugees, the International Organization for Migrations and the National Office against Racial Discrimination.

    The glossary of the Charter of Rome been revised and corrected by the editors to guarantee political correctness, limiting the use of words that are deemed not adequate when the subject of a piece of news is without citizenship and in a foreign country. The accepted terms are: -asylum seeker, refugee, person protected by subsidiary protection, beneficiary of humanitarian protection, victim of smuggling, irregular migrant (previously commonly defined as clandestine), mixed migratory influx. The term “clandestine” is now punished with fines, and warnings from the Order of Journalists.

    In the majority of cases the Charter of Rome considers redundant mentioning the nationality of those who commit crime on Italian territory.

    Sponsors of the Charter are Open Society Foundations, the UNHCR and the Valdese Church.

    Associazione Carta di Roma lists the following “reliable” sources, many of which are Italian or international NGOs directly funded by the Open Society Foundation: Amnesty International, ASGI, COSPE, 21 Luglio, Fortress Europe, A Buon Diritto, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), Save The Children, currently involved in the migrant traffic in the Mediterranean and finally UNAR, recently involved in a scandal of gay prostitution.

    2. Open Society and COSPE ONLUS
    Cospe Onlus is a non-profit, private organization founded in 1983. It operates in 30 countries with 150 projects “to favour equal and sustainable development, respect of human rights, peace and justice for people”, supporting the right to international mobility. Its goal is a world where “diversity is considered a value, a world with many voices, where the meeting of different people results in mutual enrichment and where social justice goes through equal rights and opportunities”.

    Cospe and NGOs in the Mediterranean

    Cospe is among the original founders and promoters of SOS Mediterranee Italia, an NGO that works in the Mediterranean cooperating with Médecins Sans Frontières on the ship Acquarius

    Cospe’s partners, include the already mentioned Associazione Carta di Roma, which shares Cospe’s platform on “correct communication” on the immigration question; they organized seminaries for journalists on the topics of immigration and racial discrimination. Carta di Lampedusa (Charter of Lampedusa) is a free association of individuals born in 2014 to work against laws limiting immigration and for the abolition of all European laws that limit freedom of movement.

    Cospe Budget

    The last budget published is from 2015. Cospe gathered funding of approximately €9.5 million, of which €7.5 million was from public subjects, the most relevant of which are the European Union (66%) and the Italian Ministry for Foreign Affairs (27%).

    3. Open Society and ASGI (Association for Juridical Studies on Immigration)
    ASGI’s task is to disseminate ideas on immigration laws among lawyers, jurists and academics; it has contributed to the creation of national and EU laws on immigration, asylum and citizenship, promoting political dialogue and protection of foreigners. ASGI was founded by the Open Society Foundation and is directly funded by it.

    ASGI projects

    ASGI focuses heavily on the current situation in Hungary. The UNHCR requested a temporary suspension of asylum requests to Hungary, according to the rules of the Dublin Treaty: ‘”Given the worsening conditions of asylum seekers in Hungary, we ask to suspend the transfer of any asylum seeker to this country, until the policies of the Hungarian government are not in line with European and international law”.

    Anti-discrimination service: ASGI provides juridical support against ethnic, racial and religious discrimination in Italy, with an operative centre in Milan and a number of secondary centres in Turin, Florence, Naples, Rome and Verona, a network of professionals that collaborate in monitoring discrimination matters. It is funded by Charlemagne Onlus, Tavola Valdese and the Open Society Foundations.12)

    ASGI’s Manifesto

    According to ASGI, the reasons for migration to Europe are: wars, repressive regimes and dictatorships, consequences of colonialism, exploitation of natural resources of the African continent, demographic growth, climate change.

    In terms of immigration, asylum and citizenship reform, ASGI proposes:

    -channels for free access to a country for job seeking purposes;
    -ways to make temporary visas permanent;
    -easier family reunion processes;
    -voluntary repatriation or alternative measures as opposed to forced repatriation;
    -right to vote in administrative elections for non-EU foreigners, on the same conditions as for EU nationals and easier acquisition of citizenship;
    -on asylum the EU should: desist from hostile policies adopted in the last years such as the EU-Turkey agreement of March 2016, and collaboration with dictatorships such as those in Libya, Sudan, and Niger; create an obligatory redistribution plan for refugees, adjust the current Dublin regulation with the possibility of requesting asylum in the country chosen by the asylum seeker.
    ASGI’s network

    Migregroup: it participates in the project Boats4people, and supports the online platform WatchTheMed, that maps deaths and violations of migrant rights at the external frontiers of the EU.

    WatchTheMed was founded by NGO Habeshia run by father Mussie Zerai, (self-proclaimed father Moses for his ability to make migrants arrive in Europe). The organization has a list for ”the good migrant”, where interested people can find information on how to arrive in Europe through the Mediterranean. ONG Sea-Watch, currently present in the Mediterranean transporting migrants to Europe, is a part of the platform of WatchTheMed.

    ASGI collaborates with Associazione 21 Luglio, Senza Confine (No Borders), Doctors for Human Rights, SIMM (Italian society for medicine of migrations).

    4. Open Society and CILD (Italian coalition for freedoms and civil rights)
    Created in 2014, CILD is a network of organizations to promote rights and freedoms for everyone, with advocacy campaigns, public and legal actions. CILD supports easier access for migrants in face of “mixed influxes”. After a recent change in the law to welcome unaccompanied minors in Italy, it pushed for a change in citizenship laws, currently materialized in the attempt to switch from Ius Sanguinis to Ius Soli.

    Its manifesto includes a change of vision on immigration, as a system of asylum, not criminal, based on welcoming duties and enlargement of citizenship.

    CILD activities include, the project Open Migration, which focuses on a fact-checking of news on immigration; its articles cover criticism of the investigation of NGOs in the Mediterranean, a claim that refugee appeals are not overburdening the judicial system, and another claim that immigrants are overrepresentated in the jail system due to preventive custody, ignoring the data showing that migrants commit crimes in Italy at 6 times the rate of natives.

  3. Visiting London right now. Leave for Amsterdam soon. Western Europe is a colony. The colonisers are the Muslims. Slowly the ropes are being tightened. White British are treated differently. I noticed in a major Muslim owned, staffed and managed electronics store that absolutely nothing was price marked. I asked why? The response was that every item has to be negotiated. Brought me back to my haggling over price with Muslim Arabs in the Libyan Desert back in the sixties.
