Virgina Raggi’s fight against polluter.

Rome Mayors Virgina Raggi published a post in her facebook profile with a video of a polluter. This is what he wrote translated to English

What you see in this video is not a simple “zozzone”, but something more. We could call it a “super zozzone”

“This man, an employee of a construction company, was pinched by the agents of the Environment Unit and Local Police Decoration while he was throwing three bags of waste materials into a dumpster for domestic use. Three large 30-pound bags containing linoleum, aggregates, packaging and plastic.

For this reason, after being invited to recover the waste that had just been thrown away, the man was sanctioned, together with the managers of the company, for a total of 3,100 euros. A figure that we hope will serve to make it clear that road bins cannot be used in this way.

Those who make themselves responsible for this type of gestures, I must point out, commit an environmental crime and, in this sense, they respond to it before the law. I thank the women and men of the Local Police for their contribution, always attentive and punctual, and I invite all of you to report these “super zozzoni” to the police.”

3100 Euro is in fact nothing compared to the damage these criminals and companies are causing Society.

Virgina Raggi is a Mayor, the Mayor of Lipari should learn from to fight against the polluter on this island.

Btw, why doesn’t the clergymens talk about the polution on this island?  The clergymen never critisized nazism during the war. Now the Church is silent about the immature behaviour of some citizens polluting the Creation

with one exception. I wrote about it in a post on www.kireus.com/wordpress/lipari/2019/02/26/bene-al-creato/

The evolution of cooperation in South Italy.

there looks to be some kind of concurrence between the Aeolian Islands and the litle harbour of Milazzo in Sicily, where most boats and airfoils start their transfers to the islands.

 I experienced a few times that boats for some unknown reason did not depart to the islands. It happened to me that I had to stay overnight on Christmas Eve in Milazzo instead of being home on my island. the weather wasnt to bad for the last boat to make the transfer. People explained that the personel decided to stay at home as it was Christmas.  The hotel where I stayed overnight was happy to have a few rooms rented out. 

A troup of photographer and photmodels planned to come to Vulcano to make a  photo session a few days ago. They had to renounce as the same boat company canceled the departure.

Did the boat staff made a favor to the Milanese hotels? On the long run, I would say absolutely not.

I wrote an article about the evolution and importance of cooperation some time ago. You can find it at http://www.kinberg.net/wordpress/stellan/2018/02/04/cooperation/

Nobody earns in the long term with destructive actions and unfair competition.

If the islands miss visits, Milazzo restaurants, shops and bars in Milazzo loose money. And in the long run they will not even have beds sold with bad weather. I would think that if I am in Catania, I would go to Syracuse where I have friends, instead of taking the risc to stay overnight in Milazzo. For the Milazzo people it should not be difficult to understand this.

The Milazzo hotels have their own tourist share when the adverse sea helps them.  But is that enough? It is good they take care of the tourists and island inhabitants. But why be happy with that? With inteligence and local area cooperation Milazzo  can do a lot. Look at the photo above of CApe Milazzo. I  also imagine a lot of nice trecking possibilities in the mountains between Etna and Milazzo if they prevent the woods from getting burned during the summer season. Sicliy is indeed wonderful and can attract a lot of Tourism. Look at Palermo in October when the hotels were all booked.  People from northern Europe like me do their best to flee from the winter darkness to get some sun. Sicily and the Aeolian islands can offer that. I have the last ten years spent my Christman and New Years Eve in Siclity and  Lipari enjoying a lot of trecking and even New years Eve Swim in the Tirrenean sea that has Swedish summer water temperature.

But they should  not forget that the Milazzo inhabitants can do a lot to develop their local tourism too with the beautiful beaches they have, with the Milazzo Castle and promontory and its bronze age settlements.

Booking just informed “Prices in Milazzo dropped again.”

Hotel owners in Milazzo and on the Aolian islands should met and share knowledges and ideas how to develop the MIlazzo – Barcellona area.If someone has made errors and is not a Christian hypocrit, ask for forgivness and reopen the doors for a constructive  dialog.

Milazzo needs the Aeolian Islands.

The Aeolian islands needs Milazzo.

Leaving Sweden

I m leaving Sweden next Wednesday. Tht has been a dream all my life that is soon to become true.  The dream to go to Lipari to live there the rest of my life as my mother did.
Looking out the window from my kitchen here in Älghult I have double feelings, some kind of melancoly. I liked the plan to be here in Sweden and visit my son and daughter when it is to  hot in Italy.  But I can not afford that with the money I get as retired.

In the same time, being here in SwedenMay to September, I can not enjoy the summer season with all the fruits, the olives the garden offers this time and I orked with during the winter and spring.. And the trees often need water during those hot summer months.

My mother (signe.kinberg.net) came to live on Lipari about 1977 when she was 50+. She was a courage woman to come to live on a island. But she did it together with her fiancé.  Now I do the same.  She died on the island 98.  It would be terrific if she would Migration reappear there.  

If I do met her again, I want her to be happy with the way I took care of her gift, the house and the garden. My mother  has become a important reason I want to be back on Lipari.

I had periods of melancoly and being nervous these last Swedish days.  It is a period of 46 Swedish Years that have come to an end.

My last days were spent getting my two luggages packed and greetings all good friends in the village. I were invited to a few nice dinners at my lovely Syrian friends from Aleppo. I went to Mass yestereday with my friend Feras.

Migration diary

Day 1, Monday 24  September

Älghult – Copenhagen

I waked up 5.50 am this morning. At 6.30 Annelie a friend and neighbour of mine came with her car to bring me to the buss station.

I got on a earlier buss, at 6.30 and in Växjö I tried to take a earlier train too. But that did not work out. I hade to pay the ticket again as it was a different train company (Öresundståg and not SJ).

30 Euro more but it was worth it as I knew that I would come to Copenhagen in good time before the train to Hamburg.

I am fed up with Swedish  railway safaris.

Copenhagen  – Federicia

Federicia – Hamburg

Wow, this goes fast. Three hours to Hamburg. In the seventies I worked on STENA Line from Göteborg to Hamburg, a whole night trip every Friday, dancing the evening in a club. Happy days without worries.

Day 2  Tuesday September 25

Today I go to Graz. It is a long trip about 1100 km with stops in Würzburg and  Vienna. I will pass by Nürnberg were my mother worked as a ballerina and survived the American bombings in the Opera  cellars provably drinking wine to alleviate the anxiety and fear of death.

I slept well at Prize hotel in Hamburg  tonight but had a  breakfast in a noicy breakfast saloon.  Disco music out of some 20 loudspeakers is good for dancing but not for a peaceful breakfast.. But they lowered the volume fortunenately after a while so I could eat.

I checked out and took a bus to the central station  without any problems. I alked with a man from Singapore. I where on the central station one hour before departure and could relax in the sun at the platform. I felt well even if preoccupied about the long trip, how I would stand it.

Hamburg-Würzburg ~550 km.

The first part went fast.  I eat up  four  bananas. I am trying the famous Japanese banana diet.  I had problem placing my luggages. No place for for bigger luggages on German ICE.

 

I took a ICE (Intercity Express) train to  Würzburg 1 class ruhebereich (silence wagon) 12:01.

I hope there will be no delays as I have only a few minutes in Würzburg and 30 minutes in Vienna.

Würzburg-Vienna. 500 km

The train stopped in Nürnberg. My mother dansed here in the Opera (OpernHaus) as a solo ballerina during the war.

I wrote about it in http://www.kinberg.net/wordpress/signe/dancer/ 

This is the OpernHaus as seen from the Central Station.

My mother maybe lived in a house like this one:She never like New Years Eve fireworks as she said “They remind me about the bombs. Maybe he lived in a house like the one above.

 

Vienna- Graz.200 km

15 minutes late to  Vienna. But luckily the train to Graz coming from Prag was also late.  So I finally came to Graz 11.4 5 exhausted. 

It has been a trip with a lot of thinking and discoveries. I learned some more about my mother during this migration tour

2 weeks in Graz Sep 25 – Oct 9

I stayed at my brothers home for two week to get several luggages to be sent wirh Mailboxes to Baercellona Posso di Gotto  where I will get these on a boat to Lipari and my home.

I had the opportunity to met several of my borthers neighboors who are kind and loving people.

I also had two days in my brothers and wifes summer home in Velt an Vörtersee, the Austrian Portonfino. I enjoyed a ni ce bath in the sea that had a nice clean water about 18 Celsius.

With a friend of my brother I went to the San Fransican church Sunday Mass. That was a opportunity of peace and mind restoring.

In between these experiences I scanned two album with photos from my father in my brothers mother.  I hope to find time to shwo some of these in my fathers site http://ragnar.kinberg.net
