wrath of Arcigay and coordination varese pride.
Varese, June 15, 2016
Today the police commissioner, through the Digos police headquarters in Varese, informed the Coordination Varese Pride and Arcigay Varese, in the person of the president of Arcigay Varese Giovanni Boschini, the perversion of the Varese Pride parade planned for months (and already changed in the past), as well as the square of the final event
The route, already authorized, would have to cross Corso Matteotti, the place of the city’s social life with the end in the central Piazza Monte Grappa.
The new path is Piazza Cacciatori delle Alpi, Via Dandolo, Via Cavour, Via Vittorio Veneto, Via Magatti, Largo Sogno, Via Bernascone ending in Piazza Ragazzi del ’99, a closed parking are barely visible to passers-by.
The reason given for the change was that “along the route requested by the Promoter are offices of political parties affected by the 19/06/2016 elections”.
“The decision of the superintendent is a choice by we do not explain the reasons and the choice to notify us three days before creates us enormous damage” – said the president of Arcigay Varese GiovanniBoschini – “we already have in hand all the permissions of all entities competent and this three days before the square of the final event involves a change of all the logistical and organizational aspects of the event. ”
“In addition, we think that in the Piazza Ragazzi del ’99 there is a big security problem in the fact that it is a fully closed car park, with only one small entrance. Given the expected turnout it is unthinkable to stay indoors so many people without a way out safe. ”
Coordination Varese Pride will meet the commissioner tomorrow morning.
