Italy: Hundreds demand justice for slain Malian labourer in Reggio Calabria

Hundreds of people rallied in the southern Italian city of Reggio Calabria to demand truth and justice for slain Malian labourer and unionist Soumayla Sacko. The rally was promoted by Unione Sindacale di Base (USB), the union to which Sacko belonged. «What we ask for is truth and justice for Soumayla Sacko. At the same time we ask for the rights of labourers — men and women, independently of... Еще their skin colour — to be recognised and respected,» USB unionist Aboubakar Soumaoro said. «Let's always go forward, because to be human does not mean to be dominated.” Riace Mayor Domenico Lucano blamed the current government for having a consensus built with “campaigns of racial hatred.” “The culprits are all the people who in these years have allowed Italy to become a country where there is racial hatred,» he said. Twenty nine-year old Sacko was shot dead on June 2 in San Calogero, Vibo Valentia, reportedly while picking up metal sheeting in an abandoned factory with two other men. They were collecting the material in order to improve the shacks in which they were living. While they were doing so, a man is said to have arrived by car and shot at the three men, killing Sacko.
