Padua, May 2 - A racist attack on Italian
Integration Minister Cecilie Kyenge appeared earlier this week
on a wall at the Cornaro High School in Padua, Northern Italy,
according to a statement by a group of students.
Kyenge, a doctor who was born in the Democratic Republic of
Congo, become Italy's first black minister after being named in
Premier Enrico Letta's new cabinet last Saturday.
"We are extremely worried about the frightening climate of
racism and xenophobia that is developing in certain areas, which
is reflected in the way the recently appointed minister Cecilie
Kyenge is being placed under attack," the statement said.
These actions find their origin "not only in individuals
but also in entire parties, first and foremost the Northern
League, which has always been a bastion of political intolerance
and racism," the students said.
"These are attitudes that need to be condemned," the
students went on, saying they wanted a country that was
anti-racist and open to diverse cultures.
"It's time to say enough to these acts of vandalism and
racism".
School delegates said they had already taken action to have
the graffiti removed.
Police sources say that from a preliminary examination,
they have not been able to determine the existence of an
organized group behind the writings, adding that it was likely
to have been the action of a single individual.
