Genoa – Tomorrow in Genoa, at 10:30 am in front of the Prefecture, the anti-militarist garrison will take place against the arrival of the Bahri Hofuf ship.
“The six ships of the Saudi Bahri National Company have been regularly touching the port of Genoa for years – reads the letter sent by Weapon Watch, or the weapons observatory in the European and Mediterranean ports, at the Genoese port – The workers on the quay, both of the GMT terminal and of the single company, as well as the road hauliers have on numerous occasions reported the presence of a board of heavy military material, of non-EU origin and destined for the armed forces engaged in the long and bloody war in Yemen “.
With the garrison, supported by Amnesty, Weapon watch and Collective autonomous port workers, the president of the port of Genoa is asked to carry out “accurate documentary and material inspections on the cargo transported by the Saudi ship in question. Particular alarm is represented by the presence on board of large quantities of explosive material – writes WW – which, in consideration of the proximity of the Eritrea bridge to the Genoese town, as well as a deposit of flammable material in port areas, in the event of an accident could involve serious consequences not only for the workers of the port, but also the resident population “.
Furthermore, “The Weapon Watch association, through its lawyer Dario Rossi, asks for generalized civic access to know the nature of the goods transported by the ships of the Bahri company from May 2019 to today, with the forecast of the next arrivals expected in the months of December and January 2022 “.
