ALLARME BLOG

Pericolo per i blog in rete

Su tutta la rete i blogger stanno reagendo con iniziative alla notizia che la Camera dei Deputati sta discutendo una proposta di legge che impedirebbe a molti blog di esistere. La proposta prevede l'obbligo di "iscrizione nel Registro degli operatori di comunicazione dei soggetti che svolgono attivita' editoriale sulla rete internet". Gianfranco Mascia ha organizzato subito un blog (http://ammazzablog.wordpress.com/) dove invita ''tutti i blogger italiani a partecipare (anche utilizzando un gruppo su Facebook) ad una originale mobilitazione''. Lunedi' 17 Mascia da' appuntamento a Roma davanti a Montecitorio, dalle 15 in poi, per disegnare con un gessetto una sagoma sul suolo dove scrivere il nome del nostro blog o sito. E poi propone di trasmettere la protesta in diretta sul web. Indice poi per martedi' 18 una giornata di silenzio blog, pubblicando solo il banner con l'immagine che rappresenta una sagoma bianca di un corpo, con dentro il nome del blog che si rischia di ammazzare. Non parteciperò a questa iniziativa. Ma la comprendo perchè credo che la libertà dei blogger sia un bene prezioso. E trovo ingiusto che i blogger non abbiano la libertà di espressione che è un bene di tutti. Diverso è il riconoscimento professionale di chi svolge la professione giornalistica che dovrebbe passare per altri canali. In questo modo si rischia di colpire la libertà di informazione.

The big mistake of italian Pd

Interview with professor Khaled Fouad Allam
by Lanfranco Palazzolo

The italian left in the Italian Democratic party was wrong to take the victory of Barack Obama in the United States. He told the "Voce" Professor of sociology of the Arab world Khaled Fouad Allam and former Parliamentary Assembly of Pd.
Professor Khaled Fouad Allam, what changes in relations between the Arab world and the United States with the election of Obama?
"We will wait and see how we will lead the new Democratic administration in the face of turbulence across the Middle East. What we have to understand this election is that the U.S. has passed the ethnic issue. In the U.S. have capitalized the struggles of the years'50-'60. And they also invented a managerial class of African and Asian origin. In all sectors of American society we see in positions of responsibility people of different ethnic origin".
Do you think there will be improvements in the Middle East?
"I think there will be a different code of relationships. U.S. President Barack Obama will have to make decisions about the intransigent positions of some governments. But in the face of Islamic radicalism does not change anything. The extremist terrorism was already threatening to hear Obama after his election. This vote represents the end of a path of political maturity".
Italy is a country that discriminates against its citizens of Italian origin does not?
"Ours is still a mono-ethnic nature of Parliament. People who have different ethnic make an effort to be leaders in Italy. I find that it was not a good example to the appropriate Italian Democratic Party of this victory. In recent elections, in Pd there has been no candidate outside the home".
It means that Obama would not either candidate on their lists of those italian democratic party?
"I believe not. The list of candidates are defined on the basis of. An outsider has no hope of being elected. In this sense the Democratic Party is a political force old, paradoxically".
To which party could be nearer Obama?
"I see similarities. These are two very different reality. The United States has always brought something that anticipates progress both in policy and in cultural models. I hope that the election of Obama will help us to change things. I found very beautiful behavior of Republicans and McCain. And the way you accept the democratic game. The end of the election campaign in the United States is never the beginning of a new electoral canpaign. In Italy, however this happens. I think we should learn this code of behavior by the United States. It would be a step to follow the U.S.".
