The Italy’s centre right opposition of the League party, the Brothers of Italy (FdI) party and the centre-right Forza Italia (FI) party will stage a united protest against the government on 2 June at a venue still to be decided, leaders Matteo Salvini, Giorgia Meloni and Silvio Berlusconi announced after a summit on Tuesday, ANSA reported.
"We are working together to find ourselves in complete safety in Rome and in a hundred other Italian squares”, Salvini said at the end of the meeting. “It is not possible that the relaunch decree is not yet been published," he stressed.
For Brothers of Italy leader Giorgia Meloni the goal of the demonstration is to give a voice that Italians no longer believe in the promises of this government, “which still has to pay the layoffs, which has not yet shown a euro to the companies and which meanwhile thinks about regularizing illegal immigrants or getting bosses out of the prison."
Forza Italy vice-president Antonio Tajani said that on 2 June the centre-right parties will put forward a series of proposals for the country. “Italy needs liquidity, money does not come and many Italians are preparing to lose their jobs. Yesterday 3 out of 10 companies have not reopened and the risk is that they will not reopen", Tajani added.
On 2 June Italy celebrates the Republic Day.
