Huh! What was his public rationale?
By the way, would you have the time to write a diary on how things stand regaring this issue? And I don't just mean the police raid on the school where nonviolent G8 protesters camped, but police tactics re Black Block (wait while they create mayhem, attack peaceful protesters once they ran away), apparent Black Block provocators (who took off their mask and chatted with policemen), Fini's role when he visited the police leadership, etc...
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
There was a massive demonstration in Genova this weekend asking for a parliamentary investigation into G8. There were no incidents. The police kept out of sight, a sign of the times under Manganelli.
The institution of a parliamentary investigation is in the Union program but has been vetoed by the Centrists especially Mastella who has menaced to leave the coalition over it. It's one of the bitter pills the Left has had to swallow. Since it's part of the program, Mastella is going to have to eat crow. Like many Leftist points in the Union program, such as the Italian PACS (called DICO), the promises have been postponed. Prodi's primary concern is to modernize Italy through economic, industrial and consumer reforms. Civil stuff and redress is on the back shelf.
What you've said about the actual incidents in Genova corresponds essentially to fact. Of course, judiciary truths are an entirely different matter.
