Rome (NEV), April 17, 2021 – The Italian Peace and Disarmament Network (RiPD) – of wihch the Globalization and Environment Commission of the Federation of Protestant Churches in Italy is part – has invited Prime Minister Mario Draghi to a meeting. The request is accompanied by the relaunch of the twelve proposals drawn up by the RiPD for a non-violent and civil use of the European “Next Generation EU” funds.
The use of the resources of the so-called ‘Recovery Plan’ “should in no way open to possible ‘armed’ destinations”, reads the press release issued by RiPD on April 8. The twelve proposals – based on paths of peace, disarmament and nonviolence – took place after the first phase of parliamentary debate on interventions related to the Next Generation EU funds.
At present no official response to the RiPD requests was received, hence the new appeal to Prime Minister Draghi.
