"It won't be an afternoon of anger. I say this especially to journalist friends. Here is Italy working, real Italy". Then a minute of silence for "Matteo and Pierluigi", the agents killed at the Questura in Trieste, and for the "too many fallen" among the guardians of the order. So Matteo Salvini - from the stage of piazza San Giovanni door - greets the many people who have come from all over Italy to take part in the event promoted by the center "Italian Pride". Many militants continue to arrive, crossing the security gates located in the access roads to the square. The big stage dominates the scene. Around the structure, 60 meters long, the 'spallettes' are set up which reproduce the symbol of the League with that of Alberto da Giussano, which Fratelli d'Italia didn't like, asking for a demonstration without party flags. The first to take the stage were the representatives of the penitentiary police who asked for "a guarantor for the police".
"Here we are. Today in Rome in Piazza San Giovanni it will be an Italian day of pride that will remain in history! There you will be," Matteo Salvini wrote on social media. "From Agrigento to Valle d'Aosta, from Turin to Trieste, from Bologna to Bari, by bus, by train, by plane, by car. Direction Rome, piazza San Giovanni: the Italians who do not surrender to the government of the seats, of the taxes and invasion, "he added posting photos of traveling militants.

"Salvini, center-right leader? To be one must also want to"
The leader of the Brothers of Italy - urged by reporters - on the center-right leader, replies: "Salvini is the leader of the party that gets the most votes, but then to make the leader of the coalition we must also want it". This is how Giorgia Meloni, speaking at the Fdi gazebo in Viale Manzoni. "And somehow the signals that arrive today are a bit dystonic, compared to what one would have expected".

Gelmini: "Today in the square to send government home"
"The Giallorossi is the government of the taxes, of the increase of the fiscal pressure, of the prison, of the handcuffs, of the anti-VAT measures, of the criminalization of the entrepreneurs, of the nothing done on the family and of so many other contradictions. A lot of smoke and very little roast : only vetoes, resentments, threats, plans B. Today, Forza Italia will be in the streets to send home a left-wing government that, if it remains at Palazzo Chigi, is destined to cause enormous damage to the country "
In Piazza San Giovanni in Rome to say no to the government of taxes and handcuffs. The #centrodestra united is the only possible alternative to the government of the lefts.
