London: Italy, Stop Celebrating Fascist War Criminals!
Friday, August 31 - 2pm to 8pm
Italian Ambassador’s Residence, 4 Grosvenor Square, London W1 - Nearest tube: Bond Street (Central & Jubilee Lines)
Silent candlelit protest (vigil): 2pm
Demo/Speakers: 5pm –8pm
Did you know that the Italian town of Affile has recently spent €127,000 of public money to build a mausoleum and memorial park dedicated to the Fascist war criminal Rodolfo Graziani, the butcher of Fezzan & Ethiopia? Equally, shocking is the fact that many including a representative from the Vatican attended the ceremonious event!
From the 1920s to 1940s, Graziani was responsible for the massacre of tens of thousands of Libyans, Eritreans and Ethiopians during Italy’s colonial expansion into Africa.
If, like us, you are shocked and disgusted that a member state of the EU considers it acceptable to celebrate the life of a war criminal and a Nazi collaborator, then PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AND for those in London please attend this PEACEFUL demonstration - Show your disgust and anger.
IF POSSIBLE PLEASE WEAR RED SHIRT/T-SHIRT/TOPS TO SYMBOLISE THE BLOOD SPILLED!!!
