(en) [Italy] Livorno: Against the impositions of the government, against the courts. We fight for health! By A.N.A. (it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 7 Aug 2017 18:46:50 +0300

Brochure spread these days in Livorno at the banquet held in the Scales of Refuge ---- The government's decree on vaccines is nothing but another measure - this time particularly odious - with which you are between authority or free choice, imposing behaviors and therapies, limiting rights, disciplining the lives of individuals, exasperating The forms of control. ---- The excuse of this new act of authority is, once again, that of emergency. In fact, also for this measure is raised the emergency security that works so much in any case, when we speak of immigrants, wars or, precisely, health and diseases. However, despite the science on which government measures are based, the number of vaccines is reduced to ten, "anti-meningitis" vaccination is excluded when this disease appears to represent an emergency. Chaotic measures, free of logic and responsive only to the political interest of imposing the authoritarianism and economic interest of pharmaceutical multinationals.

Meanwhile, the government and the political forces that take care of our health and the vaccination of prophylaxis, cut across everything related to health, imposing austerity policies that produce a general worsening of the health of the population. Meanwhile contamination, unhealthiness and true lack of safety cause damage to our health, the national health system is dismantled: services and health benefits at unacceptable times and costs; More and more people are forced to give up taking care of themselves because they do not have the money to do so; Services are absent or impractical, such as IVG (abortion) limited by objectors (these are at least not contaminated!)

It is not true that cuts are a necessity imposed by public debt, crisis, resources that are not there. It is a political choice of governments, of all governments. The money is there: when you have to save the banks (20,000,000,000 were allocated for this), when you have to support military expenses (80,000,000 a day)

Since public health cuts began about 20 years ago, private clinics and outpatient clinics of the National Health Service have progressively increased, often offering shorter benefits and sometimes even with lower costs than the public. And while it is not a fact to underscore the inefficiency of the public sector, private clinics, much of which are run by the Church, are exalted to increase their business advantage over public taxation. The cut in corporate taxes and similar policies has as its only consequence the abolition of public services, replaced by companies run by individuals, whose sole purpose is profit and not health. In this way, health is subordinated to the profits of individuals.

Opposition to the Lorenzin Decree can be an opportunity to put health at the center of public debate, to claim free choice of therapies, but also a health service that serves everyone and is free and accessible.

Note: It is necessary to clarify that Italy is today one of the main routes of immigrants, fleeing from the wars, political instabilities, etc.
