ROME (AP) – The Italian government has vowed to crack down on protests that threaten to shut down railways across the country.
In order to reduce the spread of the disease now that many have returned from summer vacations, Italian travelers are required to display a so-called “Green Pass.” This confirms that she received the same vaccine once more than 15 days ago, tested positive for HIV 48 hours ago or recovered from COVID-19 in the last six months.
The law, announced a few weeks ago, also applies to air traffic, cross-border crossings and sea travel. Other metals are not released, especially those that serve on smaller islands off the mainland, as well as those used by travelers between Sicily and the southernmost tip of Calabria.
Local buses, trams and metro are not in line with the law, announced by the government of Premier Mario Draghi as daily charges begin to rise sharply as the prevalence of HIV spread in Italy.
Earlier in the summer, the “Green Pass” law was introduced for those who wanted to dine in a house, a gym or go to a competition venue such as a concert.
On the eve of the operation, Minister of Interior Luciana Lamorgese vowed not to tolerate any railway demonstrations or other violence. Several recent protests against the “Green Pass” law, including in Rome and Milan, became violent, with police having to rescue a TV journalist after an assailant started punching him with his hair and a journalist was beaten several times in the face. Officials and doctors have received threats.
Mr Lamorgese also said that “strong criticism of the threats posed by unofficial statements on social media against members of the state, politicians, doctors and journalists of the ‘Green Pass’ as well as measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.”
Police are investigating the incident.
“No illegal activity will be allowed to test demonstrations at train stations,” provided by Wednesday’s organizers, Lamorgese said.
Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.
Currently, 70% of Italians aged 12 years or older have received a full vaccination. But experts have expressed concern that many people aged 50-69 have not been vaccinated or registered.
