Remarks at Anti-Base Rally in Vicenza, Italy, Dec. 15, 2007

By David Swanson

You are beautiful. We are all Vicentini.

L'ambasciata americana ha chiesto a me ed a tutti gli americani di non venire qua in questi tre giorni. Ma il presidio permanente ci ha invitato. Tra il nazionalismo e la giustizia e' stato molto facile sciegliere.

Remarks at Presidio Permanente No Dal Molin, Vicenza, Italy, Dec. 16, 2007

Di David Swanson

Voglio ringraziare il Presidio permanente e il movimento No Dal Molin per avermi invitato, insieme a Desiree, a Vicenza. Vicenza per me è speciale per vari motivi. 20 anni fa sono venuto qui come studente a Bassano del Grappa, ho vissuto a Marostica e venivo spesso a Vicenza. Ho fatto amicizia con persone che ora per me sono come una famiglia, sono tornato diverse volte a trovarli e sono venuti loro negli Stati uniti. E, a proposito, 20 anni fa, quando dicevi di essere statunitense, tutti ti volevano bene. Ora, non è sempre così.
