Citizen protests have been heard for days over the new ZTL plan in Rome, with more or less organized demonstrations in the neighborhoods that have seen the possibility of moving strongly committed to this rigid disposition. And among these the areas on the northern outskirts of Rome.
For example, the XV Municipality is one of the only two municipalities in the city in which the new ZTL even reaches the Gra, affecting important neighborhoods of Via Flaminia such as Saxa Rubra, Labaro and Prima Porta. Precisely for Lábaro on May 27 a new garrison was organized in the auditorium in front of the municipal library.
No ZTL, the next protest in Labaro one of the only two city councils where the new ZTL even reaches Gra
After the Cinecittà rally and the meeting today Saturday May 20 in Piazzale Giuseppe Garibaldi on Gianicolo Hill, the calendar of citizen assemblies against the new ZTL is enriched with new dates.
The next one, scheduled for May 27, will take place in front of the Galline Bianche municipal library in Labaro, among the first areas where the protest for the elimination of the application of electronic doors was mounted.
Among the first to point out the need for common action with a note was Andrea Nardini, coordinator of the Lega Salvini of the Municipality of Rome XV: “We want to highlight all our disappointment, on behalf of the thousands of citizens in these areas, often precisely from the weakest social fringe, who will have to spend huge amounts of money to scrap their cars and buy a new ‘green’ one. The sanction is not only the impossibility of getting around to go to work or school, but even to park near the house or in one of the interchanges with public transport. Gualtieri’s green band in the suburbs is a real madnessto be stopped at all costs”.
In this new initiative all the anger of the citizens also for Center-left management in the city of Rome: “The Municipality launches a new offensive against the people. A false environmentalism that is nothing more than the convergence of interests of the elites and the industry. Let us reject this project of ghettoization, let us mobilize in all the neighborhoods” – can be read in the reasons for the meeting.
In Lábaro, meanwhile, a neighborhood assembly was called for itself at 10:00 in the morning with a protest that will easily deviate from the topic: “shouldTry at least two battles, because “No ztl” is easy and banal – add a resident -. It is necessary to relaunch public services. Public transport needs to be strengthened like never before. On the subway and on buses there are workers who sacrifice their lives waiting for a vehicle that does not pass. No mayor since I live in Rome has worried about this. Metro B runs every 20 minutes. No one will leave their car if they don’t have a viable alternative. This is not how you fight pollution. We want to feel European with third world services”.
So, there is much more behind NOZTL, meanwhile, certainly, the mobility plan that in this quadrant foresees first of all the closure of the railway ring and the reorganization of the Roma Nord railway. But also the struggle for fines and the organization of ordinary roads from the creation of absent sidewalks throughout the municipality.
Meanwhile, in the cover photo you can already see one of the posters already mounted in the ZTL zone of Saxa Rubra, on the side of the Labaro station.
