“We were walking in via Maqueda, in the midst of a crowd of people, when suddenly a group of very young people reached us and started insulting us, especially my friend Stefano, who walked close to his friend in an affectionate way. It was terrible. We were very scared. But Palermo is not this, we like it. We went towards the sea, we will reach an island and we want to forget what happened “. Talking to Adnkronos is Renato, an LGBT activist from Bologna, who last night witnessed the homophobic attack against a gay couple from Turin. “We arrived yesterday in six – he says – and we were walking quietly when we were surrounded. In particular, they were angry with Stefano and his friend”. “Among the attackers there were also girls – he says – they were all very young. They started making comments, throwing insults. There was a verbal confrontation, at which point we were walking away and they took the bottles and they hurled themselves against us. They shouted homophobic phrases and many insults “. Speaking of those who say that this episode should not be exploited to get the Zan bill approved, Renato says:” We certainly won’t be exploiting it. In any case, the bill can to do very little, it would take a cultural intervention in schools to change this culture “. And then he concludes: “We have received many messages of solidarity in Palermo between yesterday and today – he says – many people have called us. Because Palermo is not just what happened yesterday …”. , Beppe Cosentino, said he was “available” to host the gay couple and the other two friends attacked last night in the historic center of the city for free. “Message for the 4 boys from Turin who last night suffered a cowardly attack by one of the many baby gangs around the city who vent their frustration with punches and bottles – reads the Beppe Cosentino page – La città he must make a mea culpa because the Palermitans have generated these monsters of subculture “. “Maybe it won’t wash away the shame that this baby gang has caused, I don’t know who these young Turin tourists are, but I would like to let them know that Arimatea Accommodations will be happy to provide free accommodation for their vacation!”, He says. “No words of indignation or apologies, no political proclamations are needed, but concrete facts to try to alleviate a compromised image of incivility”.
