Share11 September 2019 A warning to reactivate the page within 48 hours (starting from Tuesday) was sent by Casapound to Facebook Italia. On 9 September, the social network overshadowed the official account of the movement and dozens of other linked pages for violation of the policy. Even the national secretariat of Forza Nuova, addressee by the same provision, gave a mandate to its legal department to proceed against Facebook Italia for the crime of defamation and for all the crimes related to the attack on freedom of opinion committed against the movement after the social network has blocked pages and profiles related to the movement
Casapound speaks of "a sudden and unjustified deactivation of the Facebook page of the Association" and stresses that the account "has always been used in compliance with the 'conditions of use' and the laws on the subject, without putting in place any damaging action of the principles that these provisions intend to protect ". For this reason the movement disputes Facebook's conduct, which the lawyers claim in the warning, "constitutes a serious violation of the rights of my clients and is for them a cause of serious prejudice as it prevents without any justification the exercise of fundamental rights, recognized by the Italian Constitution ". In case of failure to reactivate the account in question, he will contact "the judicial authority, also to obtain compensation for the damages suffered".
Forza Nuova's legal department, for its part, "will collect all the requests for damages made by the thousands of people who have seen their own pages of work interest canceled. The criminal trial will have the function of raising the political question to the highest levels legal. " Meanwhile, the leaders of the movement have announced that ten demonstrations are planned in as many Italian cities to defend their right to freedom of opinion and thought.
