from cette semaine
" They broke into the cathedral during the 11 o'clock mass : a group of young people with leaflets and megaphone protested against the detention centres for immigrants.
The reading of a passage from the New Testament was in course during the 11 o'clock mass in the cathedral, one of the most frequented of Modena. But at a certain moment a group of young people entered, megaphone in hand, and started to shout insults against Daniele Giovanardi and the La Misericordia association, that manage the detention centres of Modena and Bologna along with the police. "Giovanardi murderer" was one of the phrases thrown into the church, in front of all the dumbfounded worshippers who were present, and the stupor of the religious personnel. Then leaflets were thrown against the detention centres defined as concentration camps. In a few lines they said : "the confraternity of the Misericordia of Modena presided over by Daniele Giovanardi enriches itself on the backs of the imprisoned immigrants". And again : "Misericordia conceals behind its charitable facade a bloody business made of beatings, violence and abuse of power". (...). The group was rapidly chased from the cathedral, then dispersed in the streets of the town centre. A young girl was arrested by the police, she will be tried according to art. 405 of the penal code that condemns "the interruption of a religious service".
An anti-religion demonstration also took place in the centre of Lecce [southern Italy] on April 30, 2010 with an exhibition, leaflets, megaphone and discussions on sexuality, abortion, personal freedoms, obscurantism, and was broken up by riot cops.
