from sovereigns to Covid deniers, 5 thousand people expected

Sovereigns, deniers and No Masks, trade unions and workers, but also exponents of the Communist Party. In Rome there is everything. Four different events are scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday 10 October. Four squares which, overall, will host about 5100 people.

Deniers in Rome, Gabrielli: “Demonstration both static and with mask”. Risk of dissolution and fines

According to data from the Police Headquarters, 100 people are expected in Piazza della Bocca della Verità for a demonstration against the “health and technocratic dictatorship”, here the Covid deniers, Forza Nuova and Orange Vests will take to the streets. Instead, they will be 3000, those expected in San Giovanni to the cry “let’s free Italy”. From 10.30 to 14, in Piazza del Popolo, 1500 people were expected in the meeting organized by the CGIL and the CGIL Public Function for the “proposals for the National Social Health Service”.

Starting at 2.30 pm, in Piazza Santi Apostoli, there will be 500 exponents of the Communist Party for an anti-Euro and NATO demonstration. According to what has been learned, the Rome Police Headquarters has made a “prescription” for the promoters to wear a mask.

The demonstration of the sovereigns in Rome

They say they are not “far-right deniers” and reiterate that they “do not want to be confused with the organizers of other demonstrations”, referring to the No Mask square in Rome on 5 September.

The sovereignists ready to “invade” Piazza San Giovanni in Laterano, tomorrow from 2 pm, also point the finger at the Rea press, according to their point of view, of “telling lies, to discredit our manifestation“when the square of tomorrow is associated with far right fringes or other” arruffapopolo “.

Who will be in the square in San Giovanni

We reject this accusation as intolerable fake news and, for this reason, we will take legal action to protect our reputation as that of the demonstrators who will be next Saturday in Piazza San Giovanni. No one like us has worked in recent months to favor the broader popular unity against the neo-liberal ruling classes. Yes, we want unity, but unity for us is not a heap without head or tail“they say in a note.

Promoting the event on Saturday, among others, are Tiziana Alterio, Moreno Pasquinelli, Mauro Scardovelli, the philosopher Diego Fusaro, Francesco Toscano, Glauco Benigni, Emiliano Gioia and the former grillina Sara Cunial. Rosita Celentano is also waiting in the square while Enrico Montesano, who has spread an explicit message on social media, will stay at home, albeit sharing the ideas of the ‘March for liberation’.

The reasons for the event

Cornerstones of the event “the sovereign currency in a sovereign state, the increase in wages and a minimum income of 1,000 euros for the unemployed, the defense of small businesses, public control of the banking system and a public health that protects the health of all citizens, which guarantees the freedom of therapeutic choice, combined with a non-facade environmental policy, aimed at sovereignty and food security, which in the meantime decrees the stop to 5G“.

While we reiterate that we fully acknowledge the democratic and patriotic principles enshrined in the 1948 Constitution, we are forced to reiterate that we do not deny the existence of the virus“, say the organizers who then conclude:”Work, Income, Democracy, Sovereignty, these are the four watchwords on which we launched the March of Liberation“.

The dissent of the traffic police union

At the forefront also the Roman Coordination of the Ugl Local Police and the Provincial Secretariat of the Ugl Autonomie who explain the reason for their presence in San Giovanni in a joint note. “We were the first, as a PL UGL trade union last March, to put aside our own instinct for conservation and suspend all types of union claims until the end of the state of emergency – declared the coordinator Marco Milani and the provincial secretary Sergio Fabrizi – At that time not much was known about Covid 19 and the virus was presented to us as potentially dangerous as an Ebola or Smallpox epidemic. Despite the fears we continued to carry out our service, in cities paralyzed by fear, even in an embarrassing lack of suitable protective devices, discouraging and repressing, even harshly, citizens already tried by a profound economic and social crisis, by non-compliance with the rules of the Dpcm “.

“Today – continues the note – without underestimating or minimizing the danger of a particularly aggressive form of flu, we believe however that it cannot, nor should it be managed with continuous repeated daily renunciations of the rights of freedom, of the person and workers or even worse, with the introduction of new rules that are difficult to understand with heavy penalties. The “emergency” must not take on the risk of constituting an excuse for the inability to manage the newspaper and, without wanting to abdicate the duties of those who wears a uniform, we intend to express our dissent in a peaceful way “.

“Saturday in the streets against health dictatorship”

And if the sovereignists ensure the absence of Covid deniers, the presence of the No Mask (together with the right-wing extremists) is expected in Piazza della Bocca della Verità as General Antonio Pappalardo, leader of the Orange Vests, explained to Adnkronos. of the demonstration organized against the obligation to use masks and the restrictions put in place to counter the spread of Coronavirus: “The movement of the orange vests will participate in the demonstration with a large delegation. Conte continues to launch dpcm that lead us to a state of health and technocratic dictatorship, the opposition of Salvini and Meloni is inconsistent from this point of view and the citizens are asking us to react. Will we wear the mask? I don’t know yet, we will meet and decide how to behave. We know that it is useless to use it and that there is a state law that prohibits shooting with the face covered. Covid-19 exists and is a serious influence. ndemia, because we are talking about numbers so small that they absolutely do not justify the use of this word “.

With him also the leader of Forza Nuova Giuliano Castellino: “The National Liberation Government will be born on Saturday. The first act will be to support the spontaneous and popular mobilization of Piazza Bocca della Verità. The GLN (National Liberation Government) – continues Castellino – Forza Nuova together with the People of Life and the Family, the People of VAT, Socialis, the Orange Vests and our national liberation groups, will bring support and support to the initiative of popular groups that ask for the truth about Covid “, just at the moment when the coronavirus returns to make its presence felt more throughout Italy.

Trade unionists and the Communist Party in the streets of Rome

‘Health: public and for everyone! Our proposals for the National Social Health Service ‘. Instead, it is the title of the event promoted by CGIL and CGIL Public Function scheduled in Piazza del Popolo from 10.30 to 14.00. An event that will see interventions by delegates and delegates of the sector, together with a discussion between the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza , and the general secretary of the CGIL, Maurizio Landini, moderated by the RAI journalist, Riccardo Iacona. Finally, space also for the Communist Party in a demonstration “against the PD – M5S – LEU government and against the European Union, the Euro and NATO”.

Protests after fatal gang rape in India

New Delhi (AP) – In protest against two fatal gang rapes, people in several regions of India are protesting on the streets and in social networks. Both victims were young women from the lowest Indian caste, Dalits.

One was reportedly molested by men from a higher caste before she died of serious injuries. In India’s patriarchal society, where the caste system is still important to many people even though it has been officially abolished, Dalit women often suffer double discrimination. The police tried on Thursday in the home village of one of the victims to limit the protests. Some demonstrators put up posters calling for the perpetrators to be hung.

Both young women came from the most populous state of Uttar Pradesh, which is one of the poorest. Both died on Tuesday. One is said to have been mistreated in a field in mid-September. Her tongue and spinal cord were injured, her brother told Indian media. She died two weeks later. The family accuses the police of cremating the body in the middle of the night without consent. The police denied this allegation. The state’s head of government tweeted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said the rapists should be severely punished.

According to the police, the second Dalit woman was raped Tuesday night and died on the way to a hospital. She was previously kidnapped and drugged, her family told Indian media. Your child could hardly have spoken and walked after the crime, said the mother.

In the meantime, the police said they had arrested the four alleged rapists of the first woman and the two of the second woman. There should be urgent proceedings.

In 2012, a particularly brutal rape case of a student on a bus in the capital of India and the world showed that the country had a fundamental problem – a rape problem. According to official figures, a woman or a girl is raped there every 15 minutes – and not all cases are recorded. Even today, many Indian women are silent about it. Only particularly brutal cases make national headlines. In response to this, people have protested again and again in recent years, some demanding the death of perpetrators. But activists say the cause of the many rapes lies deeper – in the patriarchal society in which many women learned early on that they were worth less than their brothers.

Thousands of female fetuses are aborted every year, girls attend schools less often than boys and daughters are often a financial burden for families – they often have to pay a high dowry when they marry, although this is now officially prohibited. Activists also accuse the police and the often overloaded judicial system of not taking victims of sexual violence seriously enough – especially if they belong to a lower caste.


Demonstrations in Argentina demanding the legalization of abortion coinciding with its international day … Police and activists in Mexico have fled and escaped … 6.5 million operations take place annually and 760 thousand women suffer complications in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The issue of abortion is returning to arouse controversy again, and Latin countries celebrate today, September 28, the Day of Struggle for the Right to Abortion, with calls for demands to legalize it, and calls for various organizations to demonstrations in different regions, especially in the city of Buenos Aires.

Argentine newspaper “Diario Argentino” indicated that the demonstrations are taking place in Argentina in front of the Congress, as the national campaign for the right to abortion calls on decision-makers to approve a bill for 2020 on voluntary termination of pregnancy.

In different parts of the country, there will be measures on the streets, taking care of social distancing, but it seeks to stabilize the claim, because the project is at risk of losing power this year.

The newspaper pointed out that on September 28, 1871, Brazil ratified the Freedom of Surrogacy Act, which considered the children of slaves free, and in 1990, it chose an organization V Feminist Encounter In Latin America that date is the day of the struggle to decriminalize and legalize abortion in Latin America and the Caribbean, also known as the International Day of Action for Access to Legal and Safe Abortion.

The only countries in the region where voluntary termination of pregnancy is not punished are Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guyana and Uruguay, which are banned, without exception, in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Suriname, Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua. On the rest of the continent, abortion is criminalized with some exceptions.

In Argentina, abortion is considered unpunished when pregnancy poses a danger to the woman’s life, and this risk cannot be avoided by other means, if the pregnancy is the result of rape, or if the pregnancy is the result of rape of a woman with a mental or intellectual disability, health workers must ensure the practice of terminating Pregnancy and not hindering it in cases that have the right to access it.

In Latin America and the Caribbean, approximately 6.5 million abortions are performed annually (according to unofficial data, given that they are illegal in most countries, it is impossible to keep a real account) and about 760,000 women suffer complications from unsafe abortions each year. According to the Argentine newspaper.

Under the pressure of the growing feminist movement, the right to abortion has been affirmed among major agenda items in the Dominican Republic, Brazil, Mexico and Argentina.

In Mexico, a hit-and-run situation dominated the scene in the Mexican capital, after hundreds of activists came out to protest against the move to criminalize abortions in the country..

Activists clashed with Mexican security forces at a time when it is estimated that nearly millions of women undergo abortions annually, and that 15% of women in the country have undergone the operation, many of whom end up in hospitals due to the complications of the operation..

The Spanish newspaper “El Diario” indicated that Argentina and Colombia occupy the first places in the number of deaths of women due to abortion, due to the criminalization of abortion in those countries, so Argentina was supposed to witness in early March the presentation of the bill promised by Argentine President Alberto Fernandez, especially in the situation Currently, Argentine women who wish to interrupt pregnancy continue to put their lives at risk.

And according to the latest report issued by the Center for Legal and Social Studies (CELS), Between 460,000 and 600,000 clandestine abortions are performed in Argentina annually.

The newspaper believes that the enactment of new laws to decriminalize abortion in Latin America will greatly help in eliminating illegal abortion, or the so-called clandestine abortion.

In Argentina, for example, a 31-year-old woman in the province of Buenos Aires died after an unsafe abortion, after the law regulating abortion was introduced in the Congress of the South American country, and Cecilia Carraguesian, a member of the Network of Professionals and General Practitioners, explained that the young woman had arrived To hospital due to an infectious disease in the womb, called Mondor syndrome, “which is caused by infections.

“There is no need to conceal or cover more deaths,” Karaguisian said, noting that the woman had three children and had scarce economic resources. In addition, he found that his home was near a health center, and she decided to undergo a secret abortion which led to her death. .

Thousands of activists in support of the right to abortion gathered in front of the headquarters of the Argentine National Congress in the capital, Buenos Aires, where legislation was passed criminalizing the abortion process.

Last year, the deputies approved the text of the abortion legalization law, but the Senate rejected it, and since then the pro-abortion marches and campaigns to pressure candidates for the presidential elections scheduled for late next October.

The bill, which was approved by the deputies and rejected by the sheikhs, provided for the punishment of imprisonment for a period ranging between three months and one year for officials in health institutions or doctors who “unjustifiably postpone,” or refuse to perform the elective abortion or refuse it, in accordance with the provisions of the law .

The Colombian example is another example, where expert Aura Artiaja says, “Abortion in Colombia is a great and serious crime, as the Constitutional Court in Colombia has not legalized abortion, and there are more than 400 thousand clandestine abortions in the country, compared to 17 thousand operations.


Demonstration on family reunification from Eritrea: increase the pressure

Eritrean refugees wait years in Germany for their families to be allowed to come. That’s why they want to demonstrate on Saturday.

Demonstration for family reunification from Eritrea in June in Berlin Foto: Florian Boillot

BERLIN taz | For the second time within a few months, Eritrean refugees want to demonstrate on Saturday in Berlin’s government district for their right to family reunification. After the first demonstration in July with more than 1,000 participants, the Federal Foreign Office had neither answered the demonstrators’ letter nor changed its practice, says one of those affected, Mehari Tsegay of the taz. The motto of the demo at the time was “I miss my family”.

Tsegay has lived in Germany since 2014 and has been waiting for his wife and two children who are in Ethiopia ever since. He says, “We have to increase the pressure. The unrest in Ethiopia, where many families are waiting, has worsened in recent months. Our families are badly affected and had to leave their homes. “

According to the initiators, 1,200 refugees from Eritrea are currently waiting for their families to join them. The escape from the Horn of Africa to Europe via the Sahara, the civil war state of Libya and the Mediterranean Sea is so dangerous that often only men feel comfortable going. Meanwhile, the women and children wait in Ethiopia or Sudan, i.e. in politically and economically unstable countries. According to official statistics, a good 80 percent of the Eritrean refugees living in Germany are men. If they are granted asylum – the rule given the catastrophic situation in Eritrea – they have the right to family reunification.

In practice it looks different. According to official information from the federal government and international organizations, one first waits six to twelve months for registration with the UN refugee agency UNHCR in Eritrea’s neighboring countries and then another 12 months for an appointment at the German embassy in order to even be able to apply for family reunification. During this time, their husbands in Germany are responsible for the livelihood of the women and children, who often run into high debts. Because they are poorly trained and often only precariously employed here.

Eritrea takes a lot of money for official documents

“Then many more months pass before the applications are processed,” says the call for the demonstration. “Family reunification often fails because of the unreasonable and unfulfillable demands that the German embassies place on the evidence of family ties and the identity of relatives”.

This is due to the fact that in Eritrea births and weddings are usually not registered by the state but only by the church. Applicants can only submit church birth and marriage certificates. But the Foreign Office does not recognize this because the consular officers are not qualified to do so, as the federal government announced in its response to a parliamentary question from the left.

If you want to apply for a certificate for a marriage or a birth from abroad at a later date from the Eritrean state, you have to pay two percent of your income as a so-called “disaspor tax” for the time after leaving Eritrea. Without this tax there are no documents. Refugees call it unreasonable to also finance their persecuting state. They demand that the German Foreign Office should move and also recognize non-state documents. In addition, the refugees believe that applications for family reunification should be given priority.


Florida Proposes Strong Law Against Violent Demonstrations

And once they are formally charged, they would not have the right to bail, among other rules to discuss.

In this way, the governor proposes to punish for serious crimes those who block traffic without permission and those who participate in demonstrations that cause physical injury or damage to property, including statues and monuments.

Flanked by incoming Florida House Speaker Chris Sprowls and incoming Senate Speaker Wilton Simpson, both Republicans, DeSantis moved to discuss his proposal, which goes by name Law on Protection against Violence, Disorder and Looting and Law Enforcement, as a “focal point”, when the next legislature begins in March.

DeSantis also pointed out that the municipalities or counties that choose to “defund” the Police, that is, subtract funds from the police forces, in response to acts of police abuse, which have incited most of the protests; they would be reprimanded with a capital cut.

In this aspect, Miami-Dade seems to take distance. There are no indications of a bias toward diverting police funds, even though a number of county residents asked the local legislative commission to do so.

Even the county mayor, Carlos Giménez, rejected the suggestion and pointed out that “the vast majority of people do not agree with taking funds away from the Police.”


Protests involving property damage or assaults on private property rarely occur in Florida, as happened in Portland and other cities, following the deaths of George Floyd in Minneapolis and Breonna Taylor in Louisville at the hands of police officers.

In Miami, at the end of May, rocks and bottles were thrown at the Police. Even two police vehicles were burned. Police responded with tear gas and rubber bullets.

In addition, the walls and windows of several commercial premises were vandalized. Some of them looted by the agitators, who the organizers of the peaceful protest claimed “are not part of them.”

The proposed law states that those who finance the violent demonstrations would be subject to federal prosecution under the Corrupt Organizations and Influenced by Racketeers Act.

“I think the bill is very good. It is necessary to protect the public property and of each one. I’m just concerned with blaming someone who gets caught in a mob and causes an accident, ”said James Williams, professor of political science at Florida State University in Tallahassee.

Indeed, a driver who is forced to flee a “mob” and causes an accident would not be liable for injury or death under the proposed law.

“That would be legalizing violence against protesters,” said Andrea Mercado, executive director of New Florida Majority, a citizen group for civil rights, through a statement.

Also, if the proposal is approved, both state and local governments would be prohibited from hiring people with criminal records related to violent demonstrations. And people who are government employees and are convicted of participating in them could be fired.


Moscow and Minsk outraged: Belarus horror brought to Brussels

Breakfast turns into a political issue: because the EU foreign ministers receive the Belarusian opposition party Tichanovskaya in Brussels, emotions are boiling in Moscow and Minsk. But the supporters of President Lukashenko need not fear any concrete consequences after the meeting.

The foreign ministers of the EU states caused outrage by meeting with the Belarusian opposition leader Svetlana Tichanovskaya in Minsk and Moscow. Russia condemned the reception of the opponent of the head of state Alexander Lukashenko as interference in the internal affairs of the former Soviet republic. “Given the situation in Belarus, this runs counter to the goal of restoring stability,” said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Sakharova.

The government in Minsk, which otherwise prefers to let its supporters from Russia speak for itself, was outraged that the 38-year-old was received on the international stage. “Our country is facing unprecedented external pressure,” said Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko. The West is trying to plunge the country into “chaos”. The Foreign Ministry said the reception was a disregard for the Belarusian people, whom Lukashenko had re-elected on August 9 by a large majority.

The EU sharply rejected the allegations. At breakfast with Tichanovskaya in the morning it was about democracy and human rights, said the EU foreign affairs representative Josep Borrell. “This cannot be viewed as an intrusion into internal affairs.” In addition, several foreign ministers made it clear that they are ready to tighten the course against Minsk again.

Federal Foreign Minister Heiko Maas spoke out in favor of examining sanctions against Lukashenko personally. “We have to realize that nothing has got better in the last few weeks. The violence that Lukashenko is using against peaceful demonstrators is completely unacceptable,” said the SPD politician in Brussels. One must now ask oneself whether Lukashenko should not also be on the sanctions list as the main responsible.

Cyprus blocks previous punitive measures

The planned Belarus sanctions are supposed to affect around 40 people who are accused of participating in election fraud or violent crackdown on peaceful protests – including the interior minister. There have been protests and strikes against Lukashenko in Belarus since the presidential election. The head of state, who has been in power for 26 years, was declared the winner again with 80.1 percent. There have since been several dead, hundreds injured and more than 10,000 arrests. Russia gives political and financial support to Lukashenko, who has been described as the “last dictator in Europe”.

The democracy movement in the country sees Tichanovskaya as the winner. “We are really impressed by the courage and perseverance of the people in Belarus,” said EU Foreign Affairs Representative Borrell. The women in particular showed real leadership. Tichanowskaja called on the EU states to turn off the money supply to the regime. “All the money that Mr. Lukashenko can get now (…) will only be used for violence.” At their meeting, she showed the ministers what violence she means: she held up the photo of a severely abused male body.

But it is still unclear when the EU will even be able to adopt the penalties that have been planned for weeks. The reason is a veto by the small EU country Cyprus, which wants to persuade the other member states to support new sanctions against Turkey. Cyprus and Greece have long been calling on the EU to react more sharply to Turkish gas explorations in the eastern Mediterranean that they consider illegal. Other EU countries believe that this could make ongoing mediation efforts difficult. You therefore want to wait before agreeing to new Turkey sanctions.

Cyprus was again angry about this at the beginning of the week. “Our reaction to violations of our core values ​​and principles cannot be à la carte. It has to be consistent,” said Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulidis on EU policy.

Agreement on Libya question

The blockade of Cyprus, which is extremely uncomfortable for the EU, could rekindle the debate that has been going on for a long time about a possible abandonment of the principle of unanimity in sanctioning decisions. Countries like Germany have shown themselves to be fundamentally open to such a step – but it is unclear how far it could go. Countries such as Cyprus are likely to refuse to allow sanction decisions to be taken unanimously in the future for violations of human rights, but not for violations of the national sovereignty of EU states.

Meanwhile, the EU foreign ministers showed unity on the subject of Libya: They imposed sanctions for violating the UN arms embargo. The ministers decided to take action against three companies from Turkey, Jordan and Kazakhstan and two people, as EU diplomats announced. They are said to have been involved in the delivery of war material while circumventing the embargo. Possible accounts of companies in the EU will be blocked by the sanctions. In addition, European companies are no longer allowed to maintain business relationships with them. Entry bans and account freezes are imposed on the persons.

The sanctions were decided in principle by the EU ambassadors of the 27 member states on Friday and have now been put into effect by the ministers. It is the first time that the EU has imposed sanctions for violating the arms embargo on its own. So far it had only implemented UN sanctions in this area.

At an international Libya conference in Berlin in January, the countries involved had actually promised not to continue to support the conflicting parties and to comply with the existing arms embargo. Since then, however, weapons have continued to enter the country. In March of this year, the EU decided on a new naval mission to enforce the arms embargo. The “Irini” military operation uses ships and airplanes to monitor the sea route to Libya in particular.

Trump to visit California on Monday to learn about the fires

Monrovia (United States), 12/09/2020.- The Bobcat Fire progresses in the woods in the Angeles National Forest north of Monrovia, North East of Los Angeles, California, USA, 11 September 2020 (issued 12 September 2020). According to reports, the Creek Fire has burnt over 26,000 acres of forest. (Incendio, Estados Unidos) EFE/EPA/ETIENNE LAURENT

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, will visit California next Monday to learn “in situ” of the situation in the fight against the multiple fires that burn in the state, one of which is already the largest in its history.

As a White House spokesman, Judd Deere, told Efe this Saturday, the president will go to McClellan Park, in the vicinity of Sacramento, the Californian capital, where he will meet with local and state authorities to transfer the last hour of the efforts against flames.

“Since mid-August (when the state’s first major fire wave was declared), President Trump and Governor (of California, Gavin) Newsom have spoken on the phone and the White House and the Federal Emergency Management Agency they have been in constant contact with local and state officials in responding to these natural disasters, “said Deere.

The Government recalled that Trump had already approved a Presidential Declaration of Major Disaster for the state at the end of August, which activates aid programs and makes federal funds available to the affected areas, and described the fire-fighting efforts as “executed locally, state-managed and federally supported. ‘

The president will stop in California after holding several elections throughout the weekend in neighboring Nevada and Arizona, two key states ahead of the November presidential elections.

California is experiencing the worst year in its recent history for wildfires, with more than 1,214,000 hectares burned to date, the highest annual figure ever recorded, and that has not yet begun what has traditionally been the “season »Of fires, in October and November.

Most of the fires broke out in mid-August due to an unusual electrical storm in the region, and since then the dryness, strong winds and high temperatures have caused them to spread at high speed across the length and breadth of the state.

Also this Saturday, the Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, issued a statement in which he accused Trump of “denying the reality” of the climate crisis and warned that we must act “right now” to avoid a future “of tragedies. Endless like the one that’s affecting the families of the American West these days.

In addition to California, other western states such as Washington, Colorado, Montana and, above all, Oregon, are being affected by the fires, which in the case of the latter keep almost half a million people evacuated and have claimed several victims mortal in the last hours. EFE

Leander Haußmann on Corona bans: “I feel under general suspicion”

Und then I got infected after all. Shit, I thought, it’s got me now, I have to prevent it from completely taking hold of me. It happened at Edeka: A youth at the cash register had made a compromise with his mask in his impartiality, as if there was no tomorrow: cover his mouth, let his nose peek out. Before I could prevent it, I pointed it out to him. Not with words, but with such an imperious gesture with the finger.

I was deeply shocked – at myself. Because there are a couple of things I’ve never done before. Not on principle, and I hate principles. For example, I’ve never complained about neighborly noise. I never called the police about it either. Not because I’m on the left, because God doesn’t know that. I love the police. But in my world they are only called in dire need. To help someone, not to have someone punished. Those are the rules in my rock and roll community, sorry.
