ER Editor: Testing will still be possible for these unvaccinated people, but at their own cost. These are very poor people receiving very little.
This is yet another anomaly in our governments are doing things. Notice the number of people this policy applies to – 100,000. It’s as if the Italian government, or the ‘wise’ ones therein, asked themselves, ‘how can we impose the most morally hideous policy and garner the worst press for ourselves while having this hideous policy apply to so very few people in total?’
We continue to observe anomalies.
Italy: non-vaccinated people excluded from the RSA and from access to the job center
As of February 1, unvaccinated people eligible for the Italian equivalent of the French RSA (ER: this is a minimum income payment for those without resources) will no longer be able to receive financial assistance. They will also be deprived of all access to the Pôle emploi (ER: assistance in finding a job) and public services.
In Italy, Mario Draghi’s government has introduced a new health measure. As of February 1, Italians and Europeans based in Italy who are eligible for citizenship income (ER: survival level, as mentioned above) will have to prove that they have a complete vaccination schedule in order to continue receiving financial aid. At the same time, entry to the job center and public services will be forbidden to unvaccinated people, as reported by the Italian daily La Repubblica.
According to the latest figures from the Ministry of Employment, approximately 100,000 unvaccinated people are receiving this benefit. In order to continue receiving their monthly cheque, unvaccinated people will be required to undergo regular testing, for which they will be charged. The restrictions are even more severe for unvaccinated people over 50. They will be excluded from the workplace and their salary will be suspended after five days of absence, which will be considered as unjustified.
In Italy, the government continues to tighten health restrictions. On December 29, the government had already decided to require the vaccination pass in transport, hotels, restaurant terraces, fairs and congresses, as well as swimming pools and gyms, from January 10. On January 5, the government of Mario Draghi decided to introduce mandatory vaccination for all people over 50 years old.
Many voices have been raised to denounce the discriminatory nature of the new health restrictions introduced by the government. On 14 January, Amnesty International Italy urged the Italian government to reconsider certain aspects of its health policy in order to avoid discrimination against the unvaccinated.
“The government must continue to ensure that the entire population can enjoy their fundamental rights, such as the right to education, work and medical treatment, paying particular attention to non-covidated patients who need urgent surgery,” said the NGO.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
