A Solidarity Message from “San Precario” in Milan
A message from “San Precario”, protective saint character born of Italy’s “independent” Mayday movements, who watches over unemployed or irregularly employed people who have been forced into unstable lives.
To our Mayday friends in Japan
March 17, from Milan, Italy
It was last week that the northern part of Japan was struck with massive earthquakes and tsunamis, but still now we are in a state of shock. And with the accidents at the nuclear power plant in Fukushima, the situation is still not improving, and the risks just seem to be becoming more and more serious with each passing day. We feel very worried about this.
Especially over these last few days, you have been in our thoughts a great deal. We hoped that we could try to convey some kind of message to you through our words. In the face of this disaster, we offer you our deepest sympathy.
Especially now, the various social movements and anti-establishment groups around the globe are watching carefully over developments in the situation as it unfolds in Japan.
It gives us great courage to see people in Japan face this unbelievable disaster, each one of you living with anxiety, uncertainty, and under great strain.
With such utter destruction before our eyes, we are reminded how very fleeting, how very risky, and how very precarious life itself intrinsically is!
We are not forced into a precarious life only by the constraints brought about by labor. Our very existence, every living hour is precarious!
We are wishing for the safety of all of you. Please contact us periodically. And if there is anything we can do to help, please let us know anytime.
