Orban : "WE WANT HUNGARIAN BABIES"

Announcing his seven-point programme, Orban ruled out any move to tackle Europe's declining birth numbers with higher immigration as "capitulation".

"We don't just want numbers, we want Hungarian babies," he said.

Hungary's population has fallen below 10 million in recent years and it has one of the lowest fertility rates in the OECD. An estimated 500,000 Hungarians, meanwhile, have emigrated to Western Europe since it joined the European Union in 2004.

Several hundred members and supporters of Hungary's main opposition parties held an anti-Orban rally in Budapest following the Hungarian leader's speech.

The event also was aimed at protesting against recent heavy fines the state audit office imposed on several opposition parties.

Opposition leaders allege the fines, which cannot be challenged in Hungarian courts, are politically motivated and intended to hinder their campaigns for the European Parliament and municipal elections in Hungary later this year.

La lettera da Comissario EU Dunja Mijatovic

La lettera indirizzata al presidente del Consiglio, Giuseppe Conte, la commissaria Ue per i diritti umani, Dunja Mijatovic, ha espresso “rammarico per l’apparente rapidita’ con cui le persone sono state trasferite dal centro di accoglienza dei richiedenti asilo a Castelnuovo di Porto (Roma) in vista della sua chiusura” e esprime “preoccupazione per il fatto che questa misura potrebbe interrompere gli encomiabili sforzi messi in atto a livello locale per l’integrazione e la riabilitazione dei residenti del centro negli anni passati”.

La commissaria sottolinea che “anche se ridurre al minimo l’utilizzo dei Cara potrebbe essere un passo positivo, poiche’ le loro grandi dimensioni spesso non favoriscono buone condizioni di accoglienza e integrazione, gli sforzi per cambiare il quadro di accoglienza esistente dovrebbero essere bilanciati con la necessita’ di salvaguardare i diritti umani di tutti i residenti per accoglienza, cura e assistenza adeguate, essenziali per la loro dignita’ umana”. Mijatovic accoglie “gli sforzi del Comune di Castelnuovo di Porto, delle entita’ regionali e della societa’ civile nel continuare a ospitare famiglie e bambini nella stessa zona, al fine di non interrompere il lavoro importante gia’ fatto per la loro inclusione sociale nella comunita’ locale e garantire i diritti dei bambini all’unita’ familiare, alla salute, alla sicurezza sociale e all’istruzione”.

Sea Watch bloccato in Sicilia

Lo sbarco dei 47 migranti dalla nave Sea Watch finisce sul tavolo della Procura di Catania, guidata da Carmelo Zuccaro, che ha aperto un'inchiesta. Al momento il fascicolo è a carico di ignoti. La Procura ipotizza il reato di associazione a delinquere finalizzata all'agevolazione dell'immigrazione clandestina. Come si apprende, la Procura ha proceduto all'iscrizione di un procedimento penale nei confronti di ignoti per i delitti di associazione a delinquere finalizzata all'agevolazione dell'immigrazione clandestina e di agevolazione dell'immigrazione clandestina per "individuare da una parte i trafficanti libici che hanno organizzato la partenza dei migranti dalla costa libica, dall'altra gli scafistiche hanno condotto il gommone poi soccorso dalla Sea Watch 3".

Minister Salvini risks the trial for 177 migrants blocked in port

Far-right Lega leader Mateo Salvini was put under investigation by prosecutors in the southern city of Agrigento, Sicily, in August last year. In late summer, the interior minister didn’t allow the 177 migrants aboard the Italian coastguard ship Diciotti docked at the Catania harbour to leave the boat in a bid to force other EU member states to immediately take in the asylum-seekers, most of which came from Eritrea. Now, the Agrigento court wants to put Mr Salvini on trial for stranding for six days migrants already weakened by a turmoiled journey by the sea.

Minister Salvini mocked the new anti racism rules

 

 

 

Interior minister says officials have ‘Richter scale for booing’ after threat to halt matches

 

Italy's far-right interior minister, Matteo Salvini, has mocked new rules aimed at combating racism in football.

The Italian football federation (FIGC) said on Wednesday that players would be told to leave the pitch if two warnings over the public address failed to stop racist chanting during matches.

The move came after Kalidou Koulibaly, a Napoli player who was born in France to Senegalese parents, was subjected to monkey chants during a game against Inter Milan on Boxing Day. Three appeals were made over the PA system to stop the chants but the abuse continued throughout the match.

Under the new guidelines, matches will be paused after the first warning and players will converge in the middle of the pitch. Upon a second warning, players will return to the changing rooms and a security official will then decide whether to call off the game.

The FIGC’s president, Gabriele Gravina, said the move “simplified procedures by removing responsibility from the referee”. Procedures previously required the referee to briefly stop a match if racist chants were heard and to request a public announcement asking fans to stop.
