POLITICS. SANTORO: “CONVERGENZA SOCIALISTA” BECOMES A POLITICAL PARTY. SOCIALIST AND LEFT-WING
“With the award of the tax code 97805800584, “Convergenza Socialista” (CS) becomes socialist political party. Socialist and left-wing”. These are the words of Manuel Santoro, national Secretary of Convergenza Socialista.
“With an Italian Socialist Party totally flatten on the Democratic Party, Convergenza Socialista becomes the only hope for whoever is searching for a socialist political platform totally detached by Renzi’s rules and politics, and alternative to the laissez-faire dogma, first driver of a permanent clash between poor and between nations.”
“The whole documentation has been filed and disposed and, as soon as all the necessary paperwork will be processed, we will be able to start the membership procedure for 2014 and to start the political action, priority of the whole party.”
“We will begin immediately to unleash our approach with some important initiatives that will focus on the critical situation of our seniors and retirees, last social shock absorbers of our society.”
“With an Italian out of ten in absolute poverty and an increment of the incidence of absolute poverty from 6.8% to 7.9% between 2012 and 2013, the retiree becomes the last bastion before poverty. For himself, for his family and, more often, for his children and grandchildren’s families.”
“The elderly, the retiree,” said Santoro, “has lost, in Italy, 1,419 euro purchasing power in the last 6 years, over 118 euro per month, and this is exhausting. Along with the new generations of unemployed, the retiree is a mirror of a society that we left defenseless and that others have ruled on our behalf. It should not be like that any longer.”
