Rome, December 7 - There is no room for attacks on
democracy, Interior Minister Marco Minniti said Thursday
referring to a recent raid by neo-Nazi skinheads on a
pro-migrant meeting in Como and to yesterday's raid by the
far-right Forza Nuova group on the Rome HQ of left-leaning daily
la Repubblica.
"If someone thinks that at a time of political uncertainty
there could be room for infiltrating democratic
practices, the answer is simple: there's no room," he said.
"There are the bodies of the State that do not submit to
political uncertainty," he asserted.
Referring to the FN attack on la Repubblica and its
declaration of war on the daily and the Democratic Party (PD),
Minniti said "what happened is very serious because there was a
clear and unequivocal threat on a newspaper and on press
freedom".
He said "when I heard the phrase 'we declare war on a
publishing group' I immediately thought that was a declaration
of war on ideas and in a democracy no one if allowed to declare
war on ideas".
