Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

For the past 40 years Italian mafia reporters have been left alone. Once assassinated, they were often smeared. Impastato was depicted as a leftist terrorist who blew himself up to derail a train. Fava's murder was attributed to an irate lover or gambling debts. The smear campaigns involved corrupt magistrates, investigative police and complacent journalists- anything to take the spotlight off the mafia.

Times have changed. We're not leaving these courageous reporters alone. And as I said, Saviano is not the only one out there- nor is italy no longer the only country where reporters are murdered and smeared.

So every signature is a another voice.
