Note: Enough is Enough is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.

Trump, Merkel, Macron and the Italian Prime Minister Gentiloni will meet to discuss things like cyber control, smart cities and social security against terrorism.

The decision to held the G7 summit in Taormina, Sicily is almost symbolic for the terrible things the G7 stands for. Sicily is the European area which is most effected by disoccupation and emigration; Sicily is the island of crumbling roads, the loss of water and the ruinous transport system.

In this specific and meaningful place the G7 leaders will arrive to devastate even more than they did in the past. The US government that thought Sicily is a war zone, so they settled a military radar (“M.U.O.S.”) with a powerful and noxious electromagnetic impact; the French government whose multinational corporation bought the public water on the island and who are now preparing to get control over the garbage business.
