Cancel the detention centers for repatriation, reduction of working hours with the same salary, free education from the nursery to the university, minimum pension not less than 1,000 euros, legalization of the cultivation of cannabis for personal use. These are some of the points of the Italian Left and Green Europe program
The program of Green Europe and the Italian Left for the next political elections is divided into 18 chapters and 110 points. A real programmatic manifesto that, from energy, to waste disposal, to the fight against organized crime, touches on all the most dear issues in the world of left-wing environmentalism.
GREEN EUROPE AND ITALIAN LEFT PROGRAM: AGAINST SOCIAL INEQUALITY AND PRESIDENTIALISM
The program of Green Europe and the Italian Left was presented in a press conference by the secretary of the Italian Left Nicola Fratoianni and by the two national spokespersons of Europa Verde, Eleonora Evi and Angelo Bonelli. “The number one point of our program is the defense and implementation of the republican and anti-fascist Constitution – reads the official website of the Italian Green-Left Alliance -. In particular, we reject any form of presidentialism , the breakdown of national unity, the denial of the fundamental principles on which our civil coexistence is based ”. The program "focuses on climate and environmental justice and social justice, for a greener, fairer and more equitable Italy", says the national co-spokesperson of Europa Verde Eleonora Evi, and who wants to "fight the inequality that spreads and gives everyone full rights of citizenship and freedom ”adds the national secretary of the Italian Left, Nicola Fratoianni .
ITALY GREEN AND RENEWABLE
The first chapter " Italy Renewable and Green " is dedicated to the Italian energy strategy. The proposals start from no to nuclear energy ("The Sun is the largest" nuclear fusion reactor "already available for the production of renewable energy and every year provides 15 thousand times the energy that humanity needs"). Added to this is the abolition of subsidies to fossils, the stop of the export of Italian gas, the commitment to renewables and the promulgation of a law for the climate within the first 100 days. Among the other proposals, the desire to " transform CDP, SACE and Invitalia into climate banks to support, guarantee and manage the transition" and bring the 2030 objectives of the Fit for 55 package to at least 50% penetration of renewables and 45% savings through energy efficiency. Italy will become greener also through the encouragement of sustainable mobility for which the Greens suggest remodeling the complementary fund of the NRP (30 billion euros) to allocate it to investments in public transport, promote smart working and guarantee 10 months of free local public transport, public transport and free regional trains for under 30s.
ITALY WITH ZERO WASTE IN THE GREEN EUROPE AND ITALIAN LEFT PROGRAM
“Italy with Zero Waste” is the goal of greens in terms of waste disposal and recycling. It is suggested to press on the accelerator of separate collection , recycling and circular economy and to establish a national waste plan that considers waste-to-energy only as a last resort solution, as well as policies to promote waste reduction starting from sustainable planning.
THE FIGHT AGAINST CRIMES AGAINST THE ENVIRONMENT IN THE GREEN EUROPE AND ITALIAN LEFT PROGRAM
The positions of the Green Europe and Italian Left program on the protection of the Italian environmental heritage are very rigid, starting from the point that asks to transform ecocide into the fifth international crime subject to the Hague Tribunal, and then the introduction of the law asylum which also includes the protection of climate and environmental refugees. In the chapter "The eighth to organized crime and eco-mafia " it is proposed to introduce crimes against animals into the Criminal Code, to include the environmental crimes envisaged by title VI-bis of the Criminal Code and the crime of forest fire among those for which it is impossible to upgrade the staff of Noe, Forest Guards, Environmental Agencies. Instead, in the chapter " Italy of biodiversity and love for animals " the greens aim at the goal of 30% of protected areas, of which 10% are strictly protected, to abolish hunting, to improve management skills of national and regional parks and reserves, to strengthen the implementation, role and culture of the Natura 2000 Network in Italy and to re-discuss the suppression of the Forestry, establishing a new Environmental and Forestry Service (Saf).
CIVIL RIGHTS: LAW AGAINST OMOLESBOBITRANSFOBIA, IUS SOLI AND IUS SCHOLAE
Civil rights are among the most expensive issues for the Italian ecological left. In the chapter "L'Italia che ama" there is a bill against homolesbobitransphobia and abilities , a new law on citizenship, which starts from the ius soli and the ius scholae, a law that provides for schools projects and programs that talk about education in affectivity, differences and respect, a law on the end of life and the legalization of the cultivation of cannabis for personal use. In addition, the chapter " Italy is a woman " proposes the introduction of a law on family equality and equal dignity, the extension of the rights and duties of heterosexual couples also to same-sex couples and the prohibition of interventions surgeries and medically unnecessary procedures on intersex boys and girls and full reception of the European Parliament Resolution of 14 February 2019 on the rights of intersex persons.
REDUCTION OF WORKING HOURS AND MINIMUM PENSIONS OF 1000 EUROS
The one dedicated to work is a long and articulated chapter, in which we find several of the proposals that have characterized the Italian social left over the years. The idea of reducing working hours for equal wages and the introduction of the minimum wage to 10 euros per hour is back. The Europa Verde e Sinistra Italiana program suggests protecting the purchasing power of families and restoring protection against unjustified dismissals together with the introduction of a National Plan for the Prevention of Accidents at Work . The proposals for the reform of the pension system go in a direction contrary to what has been seen in the last decade: pensions at 62 or with 41 years of contributions , recognizing periods of involuntary unemployment, with a minimum pension of no less than 1,000 euros. In the matter of fiscal policy, the chapter “The just Italy” suggests abolishing the Imu and the stamp duty on investments, together with the fight against tax evasion and the taxation of the extra-profits of the energy giants.
INSTITUTIONAL REFORMS: NO TO PRESIDENTIALISM AND ATOMIC WEAPONS
On the subject of institutional reforms, the program of Green Europe and the Italian Left is clear: defense and implementation of the republican and anti-fascist Constitution and no reform in the presidential sense. Rather, it is proposed to establish an unarmed and non-violent civil defense department , to favor Italy's accession to the Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (Tpnw), the establishment of the Civil Corps of Peace and to make it stable, operational and the Universal Civil Service is open to all.
IMMIGRATION: STOP TO STAY CENTERS IN THE GREEN EUROPE AND ITALIAN LEFT PROGRAM
The Green Europe and Italian Left program on migration policies proposes to review the Italy-Libya agreements and eliminate funding for the Libyan coast guard, to establish a European migration plan that provides for the overcoming of the Dublin system, to cancel the centers of stay for repatriation, enroll migrants in employment centers with stp (foreign temporarily present) and set up the consultancy for non-EU and stateless foreign citizens and municipal councilors of an elective nature.
INDUSTRIAL POLICY AND PUBLIC INVESTMENTS
Industrial policy passes through public investment. " We believe that the State should promote investments that determine the development of new national champions in sectors deemed strategic, making use of the support of the university system and aiming to create new and innovative production chains – reads the chapter" The right Italy "-. On the other hand, it is evident that already at this moment the strongest Italian companies , the only ones capable of assuming an international role, are those with public capital, from ENI and Leonardo , from Enel to Poste . It is therefore time to identify a new and unitary governance of public shareholdings, to encourage synergies and develop the strategic direction in a coordinated way ".
RIGHT TO HOME AND PROXIMITY DOCTORS
In terms of welfare, the program of Green Europe and the Italian Left sets some stakes: right to housing, revitalization of the suburbs and the inclusion of the 'health' objective in all policies. The shortage of health personnel is overcome through a plan for the structural strengthening of employees , with the hiring of a total of 40 thousand operators in three years and an extraordinary plan of public investments for the structural and technological modernization of public health, and the development of health care and network of doctors Sentinel for the Environment.
