Autumn in Italy 2012

The return to work after the summer break, manifests social tensions which will have a particular impact on Italy. All sectors of society are in deep suffering; the state of crisis amongst large companies and small and medium enterprises has resulted in substantial job losses and this negative trend seems unending. The justice system, health services, education, public administration and local authorities lack efficiency. The State does not seem able to safeguard their own citizens but rather displays illegal behavior through their inhumane treatment of prisoners; awaiting trial prisoners, who’s guilt is yet to be proven; the state is criminal in the way that prisoners are treated, the daily and systematic violation of fundamental human rights which has continued for decades. In light of this it is difficult to continue talking about constitutional values, democracy and the rule of law. In this troubled time in our history the advocacy is called upon to safeguard legality to the best of their ability.
