Dall’inizio dell’emergenza sanitaria si sono succeduti i decreti del governo Conte che, uno dietro l’altro, hanno aumentato le restrizioni. Ai decreti si sono unite le ordinanze delle diverse regioni. Si è sviluppata una campagna che ha promosso il distanziamento sociale, inviti a restare a casa, hashtag e appelli.
Tutti i dati economici riguardo l’impatto economico della pandemia di Covid-19 sono sufficientemente chiari da costringere la borghesia a parlare ormai di “depressione economica”. Le previsioni dei più prestigiosi istituti finanziari, pur variando di settimana in settimana, rendono impossibile mascherare la verità attraverso i classici sotterfugi con cui i ben pagati economisti sono soliti ingannare la gente sulla situazione reale dell’economia.

Yesterday, Joe Biden was sworn in as US president surrounded by armed troops, in the middle of a pandemic, weeks after a far-right mob stormed the Capitol building. These are unprecedented times.

For decades, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s German Christian Democratic Union (CDU) has been considered the largest, most-stable and most-influential bourgeois party in Europe. But the CDU is now in crisis and subject to a process of polarisation and emaciation. The election of Armin Laschet as the new party leader does nothing to change this.
- Italy: Conte government in disarrayon 20. Gennaio 2021 at 12:19
Yesterday, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte narrowly survived a vote of no-confidence (156-149), but he’s not out of the woods yet. He is without a majority in the upper chamber, and opposition leaders are still seeking his resignation. His authority is in tatters and his coalition is hanging together by a thread.
