(ANSA) – PERUGIA, APRIL 24 – “This demonstration is made on purpose to remove the word from arms and give it back to politics and if the policy takes it back in hand, it will save us otherwise it will be a disaster for everyone”: said Flavio Lotti, coordinator of the Promoting Committee of the Perugi-Assisi March, on the sidelines of the departure of the procession that from Perugia after 24 kilometers will reach Assisi and organized two months after the start of the war in Ukraine. He did so by commenting with ANSA on the absence of the world of politics apart from a few exceptions (Fratoianni of the Italian Left were noted among the participants, and the Umbrian parliamentarians of the Pd Verini and Ascani): “Unfortunately, politics at this time has entrusted the fate of Ukraine, Europe and democracy in arms “.
And taking up the controversy over the manifesto of this extraordinary edition of the March, he added: “We must neither do, nor respond to, nor feed the controversy, we must instead grow a movement of aware and responsible citizens who are committed not only to asking for peace but to do it concretely every day at every moment of the day, taking care of each other and of the environment in which we live “. “The people of peace then go back to marching in the face of the warlords” he later said from the stage before leaving.
The arrival of the March in the lower square of San Francesco is scheduled for 2 pm, with the start of the final event and the last interventions around 3.30 pm. For the first time in its history, in fact, the Marcia PerugiAssisi will not reach the Rocca Maggiore of Assisi but will end in front of the Basilica of San Francesco. (HANDLE).
