Florence: Pensioner Shot and Killed Idy Diène After Elections in Italy

The day after the Italian general Elections a sixty-years-old (according to some media reports the shooter was 65, EIE) white man shot and killed Idy Diène , a black senegalese man, in Florence. Generalist media describe this event as a case of desperation (the italian man took the decision to kill himself, but in the end randomly shot another person), yet it joints a number of similar racist aggressions, in a signifiant growing wave of intolerance and institutional oppression against migrants and poors.

The senegalese community in Tuscany capital, well-integrated in the city since the 90’s, immediately took the streets in a strong protest, spreading its rage for this murder, following the one made in 2011 by fascists. They accused Florence’s major, Nardella, who criticized the destruction of flower-pots instead of the murder, showing all the generalized racist institutional hypocrisis, and during the second day of protests clashed why Riot Police after the attempt to block the demonstration.
