Leading Italian Trade Unionist Backs LaRouche’s ‘Operation Ibn Sina’

Dec. 2—Alessia Ruggeri, a renowned trade unionist in Sicily and chair of UPI Italia, an association of small and medium-sized enterprises, has publicly endorsed Helga Zepp-LaRouche’s proposed “Operation Ibn Sina” for Afghanistan. Ms. Ruggeri issued a press release titled “Helga Zepp-LaRouche launches Operation Ibn Sina to save the Afghan people,” published Nov. 23 in the Il Corriere di Sicilia daily, read all over Sicily; it spread from there to other Southern Italian media.

The release announced:

The Committee for the Republic, through its spokeswoman Alessia Ruggeri, endorsed the Ibn Sina initiative of the Schiller Institute. “I believe that the world is experiencing a quite sad political, economic and social moment, with the complicity of mainstream media. We have to regain the lucidity and ability to intervene in support of a right cause. The Afghan people are paying the price of international geopolitical strategies which deny their inalienable rights guaranteed by the UN Charter.

“I therefore accept with great honor the invitation of the Committee for the Coincidence of Opposites to be a part of it and give a significant European contribution.”

Also, the lawyer Roberto Zappia [of Milan—ed.] endorses the appeal in support of the Afghan people, first exploited for the affirmation of the territorial and political hegemony of the world powers and subsequently abandoned to the voracity of the finance and to its cynical ruthless logic.

The Committee for the Republic release quoted Helga Zepp-LaRouche on Operation Ibn Sina from the Schiller Institute conference on Nov. 13 (the Panel above), as well as Dr. Joycelyn Elders on the recent activities of the Committee for the Coincidence of Opposites, particularly in Africa. See Dr. Elders’ call, “Open Letter to Virologists and Medical Experts.”
