Naples multicultural, not racist, says mayor


Naples, August 26 - Reports of two shootings of
immigrants in Naples must be investigated quickly, the mayor
said Monday.
Luigi de Magistris said the attacks, reported by
immigration support network ''febbraio 3'' also serve as a
reminder that racism and intolerance exist, although they are
not acceptable.
''It never hurts to raise awareness and attention to what
may...if not firmly denounced, if not stigmatized in a clear and
strong (message)''...gather strength, said de Magistris.
The febbraio 3 group said that in separate and apparently
random incidents in Naples, two immigrant men were shot at, with
one sustaining a leg wound.
The mayor also defended his city, saying that historically
Naples has welcomed new arrivals from sea ports around the
But it's easy to stir up anger and violence when many are
suffering, he added.
''Even in these difficult times, with the extreme poverty
of our city, we must avoid absolutely the war between the poor
and reach out to those in need,'' said de Magistris.
''We must always think about who is in trouble,''
particularly new immigrants who have fled their homelands for
Italy, he added.
