Se non ora quando?

Back. Today is Valentine's Day and yesterday 100,000 women and people in Torino, almost 1,000,000 in Italy and many in Paris, New York, London, Tokio and Berlin said "basta" (Stop). A civil protest organized by women (and their husbands, friends and boyfriends) against Prime Minister berlusconi because they (we) want a country that respect women. --- Se non ora quando? = If not now, when? (from a book of Primo Levi about the Holocaust) # Non sottovalutate la forza delle donne (see photo) = Don't underestimate women's power

Tornato. Oggi è San Valentino e ieri 100.000 tra donne e folla comune in Torino, circa 1.000.000 in Italia e molti altri a Parigi, New York, Londra, Tokio e Berlino hanno detto "Basta"- Una civile protesta organizzata dalle donne (e loro compagni, mariti e amici) contro il Primo Ministro berlusconi perché desiderano, esigono, vogliono vivere in un Paese che le rispetti. --- TDP dedicherà a questa giusta causa, il resto della settimana.

Welcome back Fabrizio.
La forza delle donne sounds like an opera. Good luck to the women!

I was so touched when I watched all those demonstrations on tv yesterday...
Bravissimo… and, yes, good luck to you all. You really deserve someone else !

Ha ha we are in perfect synch... I posted images from the Rome demonstration, I was there with my little boy, representing the offended and indignant women of Italy.

Bentornato Fabrizio,

hai scelto un bellissimo giorno per tornare. Speriamo che sia l'inizio di un tempo nuovo.

@Dina, you probably had in mind "La forza del destino" (the force of Destiny) by Giuseppe Verdi. Good luck to all of us.

@Anonymous, "You really deserve someone else !" - Ditto !

@Eleonora, Rome was extraordinary !

@HBP, vero? Tutto lo lascerebbe intendere. Speriamo !
