Hundreds of nonwhite invaders squatting in the seaside town of Ostia, outside Rome, last night fled in the face of a mass show of force by Italian nationalist organization CasaPound, supported by hundreds of locals.
The invaders had turned the town’s park into a squalid shantytown, used it as a public toilet, and had terrorized locals for months with their criminal activities—and leftist authorities had refused to act.
CasaPound—which sprang to international prominence with a 10,000-strong anti-invasion march and demonstration in Rome in May this year—announced that they were going to “clean up” the Ostia Lido Centro area after residents had asked them to help.
They said that local authorities had refused to move the invaders—many of them Africans who had landed in Italy during the ongoing boat-invasion which is being encouraged and supported by the European Union.
“CasaPound took to the streets with exasperated residents,” CasaPound Ostia leader Luca Marsella said.
“We’re not leaving until these people who have been here for months are gone. The residents are afraid. This cannot be allowed to carry on,” he added, before taking up a megaphone to lead the growing crowd.
After more than three hours of confrontation, which took place with police present, the invaders decided to flee in the face of the angry crowd.
“This is a great victory for CasaPound,” Carlotta Chiaraluce, Ostia local and official CasaPound spokesman, said.
“We said during the [recent Rome mayor’s] election campaign that we always work closely with the people. This is our strength,” Chiaraluce said.
“The gardens in front of the station at Ostia Lido Center are once again free,” she said. “They are free from an abusive camp made of mattresses, networks, tables and chairs and a bustle of foreigners who had settled in for quite some time.”
Once the invaders had fled, trucks were brought in to clean up the mess they had left behind.
