Hi all of you, demonstrators, anti-Bushes ecc.
I'm writing from Italy, i saw photos from the demonstrations, i read some of your articles here on IMC and yet i've got some questions for you...
1) I did not see any coloured demonstrator in the photos. Some friends i know from our Italian "Genoa Social Forum" (that is maybe the greatest italian network of the movement) who have been in Washington D.C. to meet U.S.A. anti-war demonstrators told me there were still great problems for the WASP and Black movements to combine or at least to find some ways to unite their struggles... isn't it?
If so i guess it's a big problem you should try to solve, the main aspect that has not permitted reform or revolution movements to change society so much is the importance of being united... (sorry for my f***ing bad English!)
Here in Italy we are trying to unite italians with all the immigrants, primarly because they are those who suffer more for our economic liberalism and for our racist and right-wing government (Berlusconi -our Bloomberg- and his fellows).
I guess migrants at our side will be our key to victory, and will be the key to change the world... well i hope so!
2) Do you know about Porto Alegre? Will there be many U.S.A. people in the second World Social Forum?
3) How is it going with the Unions? I read that after many years of lack of antagonism, trade unions (and the Afl-CIO) in USA are getting anger. I hope so!
4) Don't use violence! As i said, unity is the key to victory, and violence lets media and politics divide any kind of movements.
Thanks anyway, goodbye and hasta siempre!
