“I Am Open”: More Than 50,000 Italian Restaurants Defy Lockdown Measures (Video)

Over the weekend, more than 50,000 restaurants in Italy defied the country’s lockdown measures due to CONvid.  The owners were displaying a massive act of civil disobedience that is sure to encourage others to do the same.

According to Off Guardian:

Today – Friday 15th January – over 50,000 restaurants are planning to open, an act of mass civil disobedience against “anti-Covid” lockdown measures which have massively hurt the restaurant business, especially small family-owned businesses.

Spreading through social media under the hashtag #IoOpro (“I am opening”), the movement is largest country-wide act of civil disobedience since lockdowns began.

Italain opposition MP Vittorio Sgarbi has backed the movement, saying in an interview:

Open up, & don’t worry, in the end we will make them eat their fines”.

Italy’s government is already facing internal conflict and crisis, an early election is a possibility.

The “I am Open” protest is spreading across Europe as well, with variants already taking hold in German-speaking Switzerland (#Wirmachenauf) and Poland (#OtwieraMY).

It’s good to be reminded that, no matter how much it looks like the new normal is spreading unopposed, it’s not. People all over the world are resisting where they can. That’s what “Covid Positive” is all about.

To follow the progress of this movement we recommended following Robin Monotti and the It’s Time to Rise accounts on twitter and other platforms.

 

That’s not all.

On January 12, 2021, a similar movement began in Mexico.

Amen!  This is what I said needed to occur nearly a year ago.  Businesses and the people band together and reopen and go and live their lives in defiance of the tyrants, and then look to remove them from office and charge them with crimes to bring justice against them.
